The U.S. is particularly rich in national personifications. Uncle Sam and Lady Liberty are well known to most of us, but what about Columbia and Brother Jonathan?
Brother Jonathan, representing New England, came into use during the war for independence and would eventually be supplanted by Uncle Sam who would later represent the entire nation, rather than just the government.
Columbia, representative of the 13 colonies was in use since the 1730, and only fell out of use around WW I when images of Lady Liberty were more common.
We’ve got a whole family of characters; I am almost inspired to do a family reunion comic. It could be reminiscent of Hetalia, ’cause I love that show, but not WW II based.
