C-NATO - The Original NATO organization proposed by Benjamin Franklin in 1754

It was around the 4th of July in 1754 when several colonies met in Albany to discuss the formation of a defensive network against the French and Natives as led by James DeLancy.  It was unanimously approved by all the members of first Pre-US Congress.  However the local colonial assemblies rejected this plan and the COLONIAL-NORTH-AMERICAN-TREATY-ORGANIZATION (C-NATO) became a fun colonial footnote.

The only memorable concept to come out of US Congress B.C. (B.C. meaning Before the Constitution) was the symbol of the rattlesnake by Benjamin Franklin, that would later become a symbol of the United States with the Gadsden Flag, or rather Franklin Flag.
