About the design

Our original design for History Camp Boston 2019 recognizes the British Evacuation of Boston on March 17, 1776. (The design of the shirt for History Camp Boston 2018 was about the Occupation of Boston.)

The image in the design appeared in Germany and is as colorful as you can imagine given enormity of the event they heard about and the distance over which the news traveled, with explosions, fire, and men being thrown high into the air in their illustration.
A native speaker sent this translation of the title that accompanies the image:
Richtige ubbildung der bon den Americanischen probinzialisten belagerten und wiedereroberten Hauptstadt und festung Boston in America

It is very old German and means something like:

“Correct illustration of the capital and fortress Boston in America, besieged and reconquered by American provincialists.”

 
John Bell, author of the site Boston 1775 and the book, The Road to Concord: How Four Stolen Cannon Ignited the Revolutionary War, and a speaker at this year’s History Camp Boston, commented:
This German art appears to show the evacuation taking place under cannon and mortar fire, with a big explosion at the center throwing bodies up into the air. That's definitely not how it took place.
 
The Continentals did cannonade the town in early March 1776, but
a) that artillery fire did remarkably little damage.
b) there was an informal agreement for the Americans to hold off heavy fire as the British military and their supporters left ASAP.
 
It's possible to make the argument that this graphic symbolizes the evacuation by compressing the artillery attack and the British departure into a single moment, and that it reflects an 18th-century understanding of the event, albeit from a faraway country. 

The shirt: A super-soft  4.3 ounce t-shirt from Next Level that is 60% cotton / 40% polyester jersey and has been pre-washed to reduce shrinkage.
