"Life, liberty, and the pursuit of history" T-Shirt — Closing out this print run

Sale price $ 9.95 Regular price $ 27.95

Updated April 7, 2019: This is our original design, in black, on a light blue shirt. We only have three left and they are all 2XL and we are selling them at a much lower price.  It's very rare for us to put something on sale, so if you're looking to get one of our original designs on a super soft shirt, this is a great opportunity. 

If you like the design, but we are out of your size, our newest version is printed with blue ink and white stars on a red crew neck and red V-neck, and with blue ink and red stars on the same, super soft light blue heather shirt.

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 the same super soft 3.5 ounce 65% poly / 35% cotton t-shirts from Next Level that have been getting rave reviews since Day 1. They are pre-washed to reduce shrinkage.

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.

We have created an updated version of this shirt, the main design will be printed with dark blue ink and the stars will be red. In addition, the image will be somewhat more distressed or aged than our original.  This will be available on a super soft light blue heather poly-cotton shirt from Next Level, which is the same shirt we used here.

This image is also available, in color, on a magnet and a sticker. These are available to ship now. 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.

Excellent T-Shirt!!

My T-shirt came to me as expected and in a timely manner. The fit was great. The fabric is nice and soft and airy, which is nice in the hot, humid Summer weather of Florida. And the message on the front causes people to stop and ask about it, which generally opens a conversation about our shared history in this country. Always a good thing. I am satisfied and well pleased with my purchase. I will definitely be buying some more items in the future. Thanks so much.
