This is the immortal banner of the Culpeper Minute-Men, who fought bravely against the British in the American Revolution. Like the Gadsden Flag and the First Navy Jack, it contains a Timber Rattlesnake with the words, Don't Tread on Me, a powerful expression of resistance to the British. It also contains the words of their legendary commander, Patrick Henry, whose famous slogan Liberty or Death inspired many Colonial Forces to fight for the former at any cost. The Culpeper Minute-Men fought bravely under this flag, striking many decisive blows against the British Infantry. They were a self-equipped Militia, known for their irregular but effective tactics."
