1775 Lexington and Concord Shirt
This is an advance order. Place your order by March 20. We expect to ship all advance orders in early April so that they are received in time for Patriots' Day.
While we plan to carry this shirt, we will not carry all the styles and colors available now, so to ensure you get the color, style, and size you want, you'll want to place an advance order.
And as you'll see, we've added a shirt that is done with a new dye method that creates a very cool aged, but not distressed, look. We're offering it in black, which is really a dark grey color given the dye method. It's really worth checking out, and if you do like it, be sure and place your advance order.

Our original design recognizes the events on Lexington Green and at North Bridge in Concord that took place on April 19, 1775 and marked the beginning of the Revolutionary War.
