From http://tclblogger.blogspot.com/, a picture and a link that takes you through some history and finally to this quote.
'Tis curious and amazing to observe how distinct and independent of each other the rattles of this animal are, and yet how firmly they are united together, so as never to be separated but by breaking them to pieces. One of those rattles singly, is incapable of producing sound, but the ringing of thirteen together, is sufficient to alarm the boldest man living." - American Guesser (perhaps Benjamin Franklin)
Here's the interesting history of the Gadsen Flag: http://www.gadsden.info/history.html. Won't you fly one? And it's also interesting to note that even then it fell to the Marines! Semper Fi!
