You Rebellious Slut

Anonymous engraving from the beginning of the Revolutionary War, 1776.
"The Female Combatants," an English woman vs. America, an Indian woman. The English woman says: "I'll force you to Obedience, you Rebellious Slut," to which America replies: "Liberty, Liberty forever, Mother, while I exist."
