The History List

"Join or Die" Shirt

Regular price $ 27.95

Taken from the original illustration in Franklin’s The Pennsylvania Gazette, May 9, 1754.  Originally, a warning to the colonies, urging them to unite against the French and Native American allies, and later used as an appeal to the states during the Revolutionary War.  The rattlesnake segments are labeled,  S.C., N.C., V., M., P., N.J., N.Y., and N.E.

The shirt: We’re offering your choice of styles, fabrics, and colors:
  • 100% cotton Made in the USA shirt in Grey — Knitted, dyed, and sewn in the USA. 5.4 oz. S - 4X. See size chart.

    Note: We suggest ordering one size larger than you normally wear. (This shirt runs small.)

  • 100% American grown cotton in Slate blue. 5.5 oz. S - 3X. See size chart.
  • Our standard 4.3 oz. Poly-Cotton shirt that gets rave reviews. Our softest shirt. It's also our thinnest and lightest. It is very high-quality and long-wearing, but it is thin and light. Lots of people love them, which you can see in the reviews, but if you judge t-shirt quality based on weight or thickness, do not get this one. Instead, get one of the two 100% cotton shirts above. In Charcoal grey. S - 4X. See size chart.

The $3 price difference for the 100% cotton Made in the USA shirt is our higher wholesale cost; there is no additional margin.

Also available in a long-sleeved shirt, sweatshirt, women's v-neck shirt, tank top for women, sticker, magnet, and an 8" x 10"  framed print.

Also available, our limited edition in one of a kind colors and styles.

Shipping: USPS Standard shipping is $4.95. Our flat rate shipping means you can add another t-shirt, cap, or book for no additional shipping charge.

Mission: Your purchases support our mission to engage people with local history and to support historic sites and history organizations across the country.

Join or Die T-Shirt Good Quality

Purchased this for a friend writing his doctoral dissertation on the French and Indian War (which this illustration was originally regarding) - size was accurate and the material is indeed nice and thick Jersey... it should wear well and long.

This message is for NOW!

I am buying these shirts to message all who see the relevant truth that we in America are in the same situation as in the 1700's. These shirts are very well made, fit well and take a beating.
