Summary

Print shows a rearing black stallion (possibly representing America) which has thrown its rider (possibly representing England). The rider has struck his head on a mile marker "To Boston VI miles" behind which is a signpost pointing the way to Salem. The print may represent colonial resistence to the Boston Port Act which closed the port of Boston and caused the removal of the governing British legislative assembly from Boston to Salem.
