Originally, a warning to the colonies, urging them to unite against the French and Native American allies, and later used as an appeal to the states during the Revolutionary War. The rattlesnake segments are labeled, S.C., N.C., V., M., P., N.J., N.Y., and N.E.

My office is full of prints and images of Revolutionary America. I have been missing one of the most important, Join or Die. This was a pivotal piece of Revolutionary messaging that speaks to the importance of being united under the idea of Liberty. The print is well done and the framing is excellent. A welcome addition to my growing collection.
Fantastic product at a good price! This framed print looks nice and has the option to be hung on the wall, or be used with a provided backing to make it free standing.
I received Join or Die promptly and it looks perfect on my classroom wall. When I retire from teaching in a few years, it will be hanging in my home. That’s how much I love it!
I received the Join or Die framed print in perfect condition. Thank you for your prompt delivery.
I LOVE the print.
I absolutely love this print! The fact that it’s printed on a historic press makes it even more special to me. As a history teacher, I love making that connection between past and present.
