Part of our July 4 celebration is a trivia quiz. This year I bought a few items from your site as prizes. They are a perfect compliment to our celebration.
I needed a shirt for an Independence Day party. But the stars and stripes and stereotypes are all played out to me....and this tank absolutely filled my need! I love it and the few folks aware of history that I met during the day also loved it! Plus, this is a year round top for me now!
Beautiful shirt! Very soft and light. Perfect for summer. Customer service is excellent too! So friendly and helpful. Have already placed a second order.
I love my new history list tank top! It’s super soft and light..perfect for touring the Adams National Historic Site this summer! Until then I will layer it with a sweater for Presidents’ Day next week and wear it to the gym! I ended up getting a large, which is usually my size (and for reference I needed an X-Lg in the History Nerd women’s cut).
This shirt is super soft, light weight and comfortable. It has just the right amount of stretch for exercising, and makes a great piece for a summer day out.
I bought this in maroon for my girlfriend and she LOVES it! We both appreciate and support the mission of the History List.
This tank top looks great and got here fast!
This is by far the softest shirt I own. It's super comfortable and lightweight. I'm 5'4 with a small bust, so I ordered a small and it fits perfectly (hits at my hips lengthwise). Definitely recommend!
