"Repeal of the Stamp Act" T-Shirt

Regular price $ 28.95
Regular price Sale price $ 28.95
Sale Sold out

Updated July 26: We are discontinuing light red heather (only 5 shirts left in 2XL and 3XL).  If you want one, you'll want to order now.

Repealing the Stamp Act: To recognize the repeal of the Stamp Act on March 18, 1766, we created this design, with the black skull with the text, which had been printed on some papers at the time, on top of the image of the stamp, shown here in white.

The design is similar to the one created for the History Camp Boston 2016, which was held 250 years after the Stamp Act was repealed. The design for each History Camp is unique, printed one time, and only available at that particular History Camp. Because this design was so popular and distinctive, I decided to remove the text indicating History Camp Boston and the 250th anniversary and make the shirt available to everyone.

The shirt: We’re offering your choice of fabrics and colors:
  • 100% American grown cotton in Slate blue and Charcoal. 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. Size S - 3XSee size chart.

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

The "Repeal of the Stamp Act" design is also available on a die-cut stickermagnet. and a pullover sweatshirt in charcoal grey and deep red.

Thanks to Cynthia and Kelly for the photos.

          Stamp Act T-shirt

          This has to be my 10 th shirt purchased from History list and as usual it has incredible historic detail and the color looks amazing !!

          Cool Graphics Quality Garment

          Very pleased. Cool & different style graphics on a high quality shirt. Definitely coming back for more

          Nice design

          Nicely designed shirt, would have preferred a fitted shirt (this was a standard t-shirt) and a tad bigger design on the front. Just my personal opinion on this product, otherwise really enjoy History List’s products and will continue to support them going forward.

          Great company

          I have read the History Lists various activities and liked various Facebook posts. I have also purchased several T-shirts from the website to show off my love of history. My most recent purchase was Repeal the Stamp Act. When my shirt arrived, however, it was the Boston Tea Party shirt I already owned. I alerted History List of the error. I told them I was going to keep the shirt, and that I gave the other to my daughter to foster her love of history. Well, History List offered me a discount on the shirt I originally ordered if I wanted to reorder it. I appreciate them making things right and being good people. Everyone makes mistakes and I expected nothing, but it was very appreciated that they did stand behind their product. Thank you!!!

          Great fit

          I ordered the green color “Repeal the Stamp Act” t-shirt for those summertime field trips to our revolutionary history sites. Shirt fit great, color was awesome and material was very comfortable.

          Fantastic Service

          Glad I took the time to shop here. Not only did I get quality products, when I received the order and something had been left out, a simple request by email produced the item within 4 days. Great service. Would reccomend this store to anyone!!
