A political cartoon ascribed to Benjamin Franklin is "Join or Die." The first recorded pictorial portrayal of colonial union produced by an American colonist in Colonial America was published by the Pennsylvania Gazette on May 9, 1754. It’s a woodcut depicting a serpent cut into eighths with the initials of each American colony or region labeled on each section. Rather than the four colonies, it was at the time, New England was depicted as one piece. Because Delaware is a part of Pennsylvania, it was not included individually. Georgia, on the other hand, was utterly ignored. As a result, instead of the customary 13 colonies, it has eight snake segments. The poster was mainly focused on the colonies that claimed shared American identities. Franklin’s editorial regarding the colonies’ "disunited state" was accompanied by a cartoon that helped him make his argument about the significance of colonial unity. During the American Revolutionary War, it became a symbol of colonial freedom.
