 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 shirt: Printed on a super soft  4.2 ounce t-shirt from Next Level that features a long flattering cut and a deep V. See size chart.

Based on the feedback from buyers, one of whom characterized it as more of a "feminine fit," you might want to order a size larger than you would if you were ordering a standard men's/unisex shirt.

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.

This shirt is also available in a super soft light blue poly-cotton shirt and antique denim poly-cotton shirt using dark blue ink and red stars, and a light red poly-cotton shirt using dark blue ink and white stars.

Care: We recommend that these tri-blend shirts be hung to dry rather than placed in the dryer. This will prolong their life and minimize pilling.

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. 

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.

2022 holiday dates for shipping to addresses in the United States

 

December 15: Our recommended deadline for domestic Christmas delivery via USPS.  While we can't guarantee delivery, regardless of carrier, our hope is that if you order by December 5, USPS will have be able to get orders to domestic addresses by Christmas.  However, regardless of when you order, we strongly recommend UPS.

December 19 at 3pm EST: Our deadline for UPS 3 Business Day Select delivery. 


For shipments to addresses within the U.S. (scroll down for International shipping)

Flat-rate shipping: Regardless of the number of items you order, the shipping price for shirts, caps, unframed prints and posters, bracelets, lapel pins, pendants, and button packs is $5.95.

For hooded and crewneck sweatshirts, mugs, and blankets, the shipping cost is $8.95. 

Our flat rate shipping means you can add two or more t-shirts, sweatshirts, or caps for no additional shipping charge.

Note that some large or heavy items may have an additional shipping charge, and when they do, that will be noted on the product page.

 

Timing

We try to ship orders within three business days of receiving them. This applies to in-stock items. Framed items or items requiring personalization may take up to two weeks longer.

We close for a week over Independence Day and Christmas. A notice will appear at the top of every page of the site in advance of this closure.

We ship most orders via USPS, so if the post office is closed, we won't be shipping orders that day.

If you need to receive your order by a certain date, such as to give as a gift or have for a trip, we recommend ordering at least two weeks in advance, especially if you are using USPS shipping. 

If you're looking for reliable, on-time deliveries, we strongly suggest upgrading to "UPS 3 Business Day Select Shipping."

Additional notes:

  • When fulfillment takes longer, such as around the Christmas holidays, we'll put up an announcement in the site and will list recommended shipping deadlines below.
  • If an item is out of stock, we will contact you.
  • If one of your items is an advance order, that will be noted on the product page along with an estimate of when it will ship. If that estimated date changes, the product page will be updated.

          "History Teacher" V-neck T-Shirt with Ben Franklin - Purple

          This is the perfect tee for me! I'm working on my PhD in History, colonial and Revolutionary, and although I'm not a history teacher, I do teach history in my job as a genealogy librarian. The tee is so soft and comfortable; because I'm a big fan of dark purple, I naturally would like to see more purple on the History List!

          "Revolutionary Superheroes" Super Shirt!

          I love the ladies V-neck version of this awesome shirt depicting the "Revolutionary Superheroes" we history nerds all know and love in a softer, more feminine fit. I will be buying another and am hoping for more color options and maybe a long sleeve version for winter! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
