American Junior Red Cross and Francis Bacon

An image depicting Bacon's central influence on American ideals. Washington and Lincoln are present to represent American government. The red cross is the symbol of Rosicrucianism, a philosophy promoting humanism and public service, which was at the core of Bacon's philanthropic beliefs. Three major objectives of the Rosicrucian were reformation of science, philosophy, and ethics; second, to discover the universal medicine or panacea for all forms of disease, and third; the abolition of all monarchial forms of government.
