This mug from the Museum of the American Revolution features the now iconic drawing known as Join or Die, a woodcut published by Benjamin Franklin in 1754. This powerful image, symbolizing the British colonies under threat from aggressive French forces, is one of the most famous cartoons in history. Franklin entreated other delegates to a conference, the Albany Congress, that an alliance was the only way to stop the French. Adopted by the congress, the plan was unfortunately not acted upon by the British or the colonies. However, the imagery resurfaced during other critical times in American history, including the Revolutionary War. With its generously sized matte black design, this mug is the perfect companion for sipping your favorite beverage while contemplating the origin story of this great nation or cozying up with your favorite history book. So why not join the revolution and add this unique piece of history to your collection?
