"1773" Boston Tea Party shirt - Limited run for hardcore history folks

Regular price $ 22.95

This is a limited run.  If you want to be sure you get one, place your advance order now. The deadline for advance orders is October 31.

If you know the event this design refers to, then you understand why I wrote "for hardcore history folks."

Here's how our Facebook community explained what happened:

"The Tea Act of 1773 gave the British East India Company a monopoly on tea sales in America.

On evening of December 16th, 1773, Bostonians, following the lead of the Sons of Liberty and disguised as Narragansett or Mohawk Indians (sources disagree), boarded three ships and destroyed 342 chests of East India Company tea, which they dumped in the harbor.

The destruction of the tea was the final straw for Parliament and led to the Intolerable Acts of 1774. These closed the port of Boston, instituted a military government, quartered troops among the population, and allowed all British officials charged with a crime to stand trial in Great Britain instead of the Colonies.

Many years later George Hewes, a 31–year–old shoemaker and participant, recalled "We then were ordered by our commander to open the hatches and take out all the chests of tea and throw them overboard. And we immediately proceeded to execute his orders, first cutting and splitting the chests with our tomahawks, so as thoroughly to expose them to the effects of the water."

Thanks to Chuck Burks, Nicole René Shults, Dennis Conley, Janet Raychouni, and Kevin Nelson for their contributions.

And I loved Larisa Moran Prinz's encouragement to her fellow history lovers: "Be a rebel and stump the average person."

This is the same great shirt we've been using for our "History Nerd" shirts, a super soft  3.5 ounce t-shirt from Next Level that's 65% poly / 35% cotton and that has been pre-washed to reduce shrinkage. 

We expect to print and ship this shirt by mid-November.  (The picture is of a digital mock up; the actual shirt will look very, very similar.)

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

If your order includes additional items, please indicate in the comment section of the order form whether you want the items that are in-stock shipped immediately.

Proceeds support our mission.
