It was Ben Franklin who started associating the United States with the rattlesnake. Back in 1751, Franklin quipped that, in recompense for Britain's transportation of convicted criminals to the American colonies, we send back timber rattlesnakes to say thank you. Since then, the snake has been embraced as a symbol of the American spirit (slow to rouse but tenacious and deadly) and has long been linked to the struggle against big, intrusive government.
