DONT TREAD ON ME FLAG

 

In 1751, Benjamin Franklin wrote a satirical commentary in his Pennsylvania Gazette suggesting that as a way to thank the Brits for their policy of sending convicted felons to America, American colonists should send rattlesnakes to England. Three years later, in 1754, he used a snake to illustrate another point. Franklin sketched, carved, and published the first known political cartoon in an American newspaper. It was the image of a snake cut into eight sections. The sections represented the individual colonies and the curves of the snake suggested the coastline. New England was combined into one section as the head of the snake. South Carolina was at the tail. Beneath the snake were the ominous words "Join, or Die."

In 1765 the common enemy was the Stamp Act. The British decided that they needed more control over the colonies, and more importantly, they needed more money from the colonies. The Crown was loaded with debt from the French and Indian War.

Colonel Isaac Barre, who had fought in the French and Indian War, responded that the colonies hadn't been planted by the care of the British government, they'd been established by people fleeing it. And the British government hadn't nourished the colonies, they'd flourished despite what the British government did and didn't do.

In this speech, Barre referred to the colonists as "sons of liberty."

In the following months and years, as we know, the Sons of Liberty became increasingly resentful of English interference. And as the tides of American public opinion moved closer and closer to rebellion, Franklin's disjointed snake continued to be used as symbol of American unity, and American independence.

In 1774 Paul Revere added it to the masthead of The Massachusetts Spy and showed the snake fighting a British dragon.

 

The Gadsden Flag is considered to be one of the first flags of the United States and was later replaced with our current Stars & Stripes flag. The flag has been reintroduced many times since the American Revolution as a symbol of American patriotism.

 

It is a symbol of American independence and freedom and has been used in modern politics as a show of disagreement with the current government. Recently it has been displayed at the Tea Party protest of 2009.

The display of this flag is protected by the United States Constitution under the First Amendment.
