Details:Stand out from the crowd with the 3V Gear Join or Die T-shirt. The iconic Join or Die symbol was drawn by Benjamin Franklin and first published in his Pennsylvania Gazette in 1754. The 8 segments of the snake are labeled with the initials of the American colonies of the time with the exception of four New England colonies, which are represented as a single segment, and Georgia, which was omitted completely. The symbol was originally meant to represent the importance of colonial unity with the Kingdom of Britain during the French and Indian War. However, it became a symbol of colonial freedom during the American Revolutionary War.
