George Washington's Christmas Day Crossing of the Delaware Crewneck sweatshirt — The Christmas sweatshirt for history nerds
Our original design celebrating George Washington's crossing of the Delaware the night of December 25 and his surprise attack on Hessian forces in Trenton, New Jersey the following morning.
This is the perfect gift for the history nerds and history lovers on your Christmas list! They will immediately get the reference and take pride in answering the inevitable questions from those who aren't so well-versed in history.

Great addition to my Christmas apparel
I absolutely loved my sweatshirt and wore it on Christmas Day! I’m 5’9” and got the 2x bc I love baggie sweatshirts. It was long enough for me! Super soft, excellent quality, and vivid printing. Well done! Incredibly brilliant design, and I love to be able to tell the story of the Crossing to those who asked about its meaning. God bless you all!
I have been eyeing this sweatshirt for a long time. I ordered it recently and got it in time for Christmas. My Brother who is a history teacher would love it too and I got a size that would fit him or I can keep it and it would be oversized for me and I could put a turtleneck under it. It is so pretty too! I can't decide but it is a great shirt!! Thank you!!
I teach middle school history, and I am so excited to wear this during the month of December! It will also make an appearance at our family Christmas Eve party. The crewneck is soft and fits very well. I am 5'6", 160 and I can wear both M and L. I wanted it to be more fitted, so I am happy that I ordered the M. Not too small, perfect fit.
This is my first and only Christmas sweater (well, sweatshirt)! I have been wearing it all week. I enjoy explaining it to people—though it would certainly be better if I didn’t HAVE to explain. It is also very soft.
Great quality! Super comfy and fit perfectly! I will definitely be purchasing from @thehistorylist again.
Perfect weight, quality print, and fits as expected.
