Allegorical print showing the figure of liberty holding a laurel wreath over a bust of George Washington that is mounted on a pedestal reading "E. Pluribus Unum 1876 1776". The image of two overlapping torches separates the dates on the pedestal and an American flag drapes the bust. The figures are surrounded by an eagle, American flags and oak leaves intertwined with a banner that reads "These United Colonies Are And Of Right Ought To Be Free And Independent States," a quote from the Declaration of Independence.
