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.  

"1775" on the front, and on the back, the list of towns who responded to the Lexington Alarm by sending militia companies. (It is not a list of towns where fighting took place.)  The list is based on the muster rolls and uses the names of the towns as they were then known.  (Regarding Arlington, in 1775 most of present day Arlington was part of Cambridge and called the Menotomy Precinct.  It was later incorporated as a separate town, West Cambridge, and later still, the name was changed to Arlington.)  Author and historian J.L. Bell has taken a close look at this and written about it here and here.

The shirt:

  • Heather charcoal with red and blue - 50/50 Polycotton blend. 4.4 oz. Knitted, dyed, and sewn in the USA. 4.3 oz. Sizes: S - 2XL.

Please check the size chart before ordering.

    This design is also available in a crewneck shirt for men and women.

    Also available, "The Doolittle Engravings of the Battle of Lexington and Concord" Archival Print, "Battle of Lexington 1775" as an archival print and a small poster.


    If you think you know what happened that day . . .

    You'll be surprised by some of the details you'll find in J.L. Bell's The Road to Concord: How Four Stolen Cannon Ignited the Revolutionary War. You can get your signed, inscribed copy here.

    And watch the "Parker's Revenge" battle reenactment along Battle Road Trail in Minute Man National Historical Park.

            Love the simple 1775

            Growing up in Massachusetts on evacuation day always brings me so many proud moments in history.

            Thanks for keeping history alive!
