Actually, the earliest, earliest, *earliest* representation of the USA was the Indian Princess. Evidently, this was stemmed from the days of the "four representatives" of the continents Europe, Africa, Asia and America (where both North and South were treated as one). The Americas were represented by the Indian Queen. http://clements.umich.edu/exhibits/online/american-encounters/american-encounters-women.php Somehow the Indian Queen led to the Indian Princess representing Colonial America. Evidently, she was the daughter of Britannia (England), and there are some pre-war cartoons showing her telling her mother off. Then after the war there was a cartoon showing mother and daughter reconciling.

@Trollzor14

Yes, Adelitas were Revolutionary warriors who prefer to pick a rifle and fight instead of serve in the back of the battle.

Actually, the original personification of the US was the female Columbia, as Britain had "Brittania" and Gaul had "Gallia". These were female personifications with names derived from the Latin. Lady Columbia appeared in 1738 and was displaced as the female personification of the US by the Statue of Liberty by 1920.

Anything older would likely have been an Indian Princess. :)
