The History List

"Life, liberty, and the pursuit of history" V-neck Shirt - Light red heather

Regular price $ 26.95

 

Our exclusive design with our rallying cry, "Life, liberty, and the pursuit of history," surrounding an image of an eagle, shield, the seal of the United States, Lady Liberty with pole and cap, canon and canon balls, a cornucopia with tobacco leaves, and sheaves of grain.

Printed on a super soft  4.2 ounce t-shirt from Next Level that features a long flattering cut and a deep V. Click on the "See size chart" button below to view the measurements before you select your size. Based on the feedback from buyers, one of whom characterized it as more of a "feminine fit," you might want to order a size larger than you would if you were ordering a standard men's/unisex shirt.

Comes with a hang tag that includes a photo of the wood carving on which the illustration is based and information on the elements that make up the carving.

This shirt is also available in a super soft light blue poly-cotton shirt and antique denim poly-cotton shirt using dark blue ink and red stars, and a light red poly-cotton shirt using dark blue ink and white stars.

If you have never worn a high-quality poly-cotton shirt before, you’ll want to read this first.

The image is based on a wood carving in the collection of the Newport Historical Society in Newport, Rhode Island, where this carving is on display. The Society attributes the carving to Alexander Swasey (1820-1860), boat builder, and explains that it is made of mixed woods, paint, and gilt. It is used under license. Read more about the wood carving here.

A full color version of the print can also be found on a magnet and a sticker. A mug is under development. Sign up for The History List Insider to be notified when these are available.

Care tip: You can throw these in the drier, but to get maximum life with no pilling, hang to dry.

Shipping is $4.95, regardless of the number of shirts you order, so order one and all the rest ship for free.
