20 Historic Flags — Independence Day t-shirt for women — Now 50% off

Sale price $ 12.95 Regular price $ 27.90

Updated September 3: Will not be reprinted. We only have one left: XL in a women's cut and it's 50% off.  


Celebrate independence on the Fourth and throughout the year with this limited edition shirt. 

On the back: "We hold these truths" and the date, July 4, 1776.

On the front: Twenty historic flags.  (See below for the list.) 

And on the sleeve: "Independence Day" in large letters, and "The History List" below that in small letters.

This is the most complicated design and printing we've done, with a 7-color printing on the front—we aren't printing white since the shirt is white—2-color back, and an imprint on the left sleeve.

This is also the only shirt that also comes in a style tailored for women. It's a 5.4-ounce 100% white cotton shirts. They have a contoured shape and a tag-free label.

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

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

Jake Sconyers, who helps put on History Camp Boston and handles several of the monthly outings, did the research and selected the flags.  Here's the list, in order:

* Separating the history from the myth around these two isn't easy. Regarding the "1777 Bennington" flag, Darrell English posted this in a discussion about this flag on The History List Facebook page: "The so called Bennington Battle Flag is a hoax.  It never was. I live near Bennington and knew the museum people who did look into it and found that the flag, given the type of dyes used, could not have been made at the time the flag was reported to have been made. The earliest it could of been made was 1850, a good 90 years after the fact."

Shipping is $4.95, regardless of the number of shirts you order, so order one and all the rest ship for free. Shirts are sent USPS First Class.

The teaching T-shirt!

I purchased 5 of these history themed t-shirts for my 16 year old son. The fabric is super soft and lightweight which is great for him as it has a little give but is not clingy. These are his favorite shirts and I can't wait until they introduce more and more styles! I love that he wears these to school and ends up having great history related conversations with his friends and teachers as they are truly conversation starters:) It's sad how few people know our nations' history! Thank you History List for making so many great products!

"We hold these truths" T-Shirt

'We hold these truths" T-Shirt

I love this shirt and it was the talk of our fourth celebration (sorry did not take a picture). The graphics and the quality are great. Received my shirt in five days which was awesome since I wanted to wear it for the 4th and ordered late, so thank you for getting it to me. I would order one size larger as the shirt does run a little small and the next time I order I will go one size larger.

Flag tshirt

I love the shirt! I like the fact that the sizes are true to size and do not shrink after the first wash. This is one of three shirts I've ordered from the History List Store and I'm never disappointed.
The history of the flags is the cherry on top of the cake for me. It has been a great conversation starter in my classroom!

Great quality and customer service

I bought this as a birthday present for my sister who was born on July 4 and an American History major. She loved it. Great quality and soft material. I would say the sizes run a bit small but it still fit. Great customer service as well.
