"Life, liberty, and the pursuit of history" T-Shirt

Regular price $ 25.95
Update: We aren't going to print this design in black on a light blue shirt anymore. We have some left in the larger sizes, but once those are gone, that's it. Going forward, we are carrying this in blue ink with white stars on a red crew neck and red V-neck and in blue ink with red stars on the same, super soft light blue heather shirt.

Our exclusive design with our rallying cry, "Life, liberty, and the pursuit of history," surrounding an image of an eagle, shield, the seal of the United States, Lady Liberty with pole and cap, canon and canon balls, a cornucopia with tobacco leaves, and sheaves of grain.

Printed on the same super soft 3.5 ounce 65% poly / 35% cotton t-shirts from Next Level that have been getting rave reviews since Day 1. They are pre-washed to reduce shrinkage.

If you have never worn a high-quality poly-cotton shirt before, you’ll want to read this first.

The image is based on a wood carving in the collection of the Newport Historical Society in Newport, Rhode Island, where this carving is on display. The Society attributes the carving to Alexander Swasey (1820-1860), boat builder, and explains that it is made of mixed woods, paint, and gilt. It is used under license. Read more about the wood carving here.

We have created an updated version of this shirt, the main design will be printed with dark blue ink and the stars will be red. In addition, the image will be somewhat more distressed or aged than our original.  This will be available on a super soft light blue heather poly-cotton shirt from Next Level, which is the same shirt we used here.

This image is also available, in color, on a magnet and a sticker. These are available to ship now. A mug is under development. Sign up for The History List Insider to be notified when these are available.

Shipping is $4.95, regardless of the number of shirts you order, so order one and all the rest ship for free.

Just Cool!

I have a master's degree in history and stumbled onto the History List website by accident. I was like a kid on a candy store. I bought the t shirt. First, it arrived in just a couple of days with a note from the owner thanking me for buying it. The shipping was quick and the personal touch was welcome. My daughter snatched the shirt away to wrap it as a Christmas present, so I haven't had a chance to wear it yet, but I am looking forward to it. I want all my friends to read it. I have absolutely no complaint about the shirt, the company, or how they handled my order. My only complaint is that I need a pay raise to buy all the things I want to get from the HistoryList.com.

Great service and support

The quality of the merchandise is fantastic. When a shirt we ordered arrived and was too small, Lee immediately shipped a new size with free shipping. Also, his personal notes and care of the customers is a refreshing change from most of the online world. We'll definitely be coming back.
