Why the Gadsden Flag?
In December 1775, Benjamin Franklin published an essay in the Pennsylvania Journal under the pseudonym American Guesser in which he suggested that the rattlesnake was a good symbol for the American spirit:

I reject the notion that delegates should be seen and not heard. I reject the fact that many precinct delegates were signed up simply to be used as pawns in a game to…Continue
