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

Regular price $ 24.95

 

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. 

The main design is printed with blue ink and the stars are white. Also available in a red women's v-neck shirt.

light blue crew neck and antique denim crew neck shirts are also available. These are printed with blue ink and red stars.

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.  

Comes with a hang tag that includes a photo of the wood carving on which the illustration is based and information on the elements that make up the carving.

 

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.

A full color version of the print can also be found on a magnet and a sticker. A mug is under development. Sign up for The History List Insider to be notified when these are available.

Care tip: You can throw these in the drier, but to get maximum life with no pilling, hang to dry.

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

Excellent T-Shirt!!

My T-shirt came to me as expected and in a timely manner. The fit was great. The fabric is nice and soft and airy, which is nice in the hot, humid Summer weather of Florida. And the message on the front causes people to stop and ask about it, which generally opens a conversation about our shared history in this country. Always a good thing. I am satisfied and well pleased with my purchase. I will definitely be buying some more items in the future. Thanks so much.

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.
