"Victory" long-sleeved shirt - For hardcore history folks

Regular price $ 28.95

 

The story behind the design: Our original design shows Washington's Headquarters flag and includes the sign/countersign used by the Continental Army the night they crossed the Delaware to attack the Hessian garrison at Trenton, along with the dates of the crossing and the attack. (See the map below.)

Washington and his troops were victorious, capturing 1,000 prisoners along with muskets, powder, and artillery. In the battle, three Americans were killed and six wounded, while 22 Hessians were killed and 98 wounded. More on the historic event behind the design below.

The shirt: This long-sleeved shirt is a tri-blend, from Next Level that is just as soft as the short-sleeved shirts we use in all of our History Nerd Tees. 50% polyester, 25% combed ringspun cotton, 36% rayon jersey, pre-washed to reduce shrinkage. The size through the body is the same as with the short-sleeved shirts.

Comes with a hang tag that includes a historical quote, background on the event, and a historical map.

This design is also available as a short-sleeved crewneck shirt and a sticker.

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, we recommend reading this first. 

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

Mission: Your purchases support our mission to engage people with local history and to support historic sites and history organizations across the country.

 

The historic event behind the design

 

 A map of the Delaware River area depicting the route George Washington and his Army made during the crossing, by William_Faden, an English cartographer and a publisher of maps. He self printed the North American Atlas in 1777, and ". . . it became the most important atlas chronicling the Revolution's battles." There were 29 maps in the atlas, and they included detailed battle maps drawn by eyewitnesses.

Great Shirt

The shirt was great. The color is very unique. It is light weight, but not too light. It is very comfortable. I love the design and logo. It is a must for any George Washington fan or re-enactor. The only complaint is that the neck opening was a little too large, but I guess that is the style.The delivery took only a few days.Looking forward to purchasing the Knox Moving shirt next.

I bought two of the long sleeved “Victory / Victory or Death shirts. The quality is great, and the colors indigo and blue are unique.
They are extremely comfortable—light weight, but not too light. A great gift for your favorite G. Washington admirer or Revolutionary War re-enactor!

Very happy with my purchase. The shirts were delivered within a few days with a nice hand written note.

The Knox Moving Shirts are next on my list!!

A Great LS T-Shirt

I really like the soft, silky feel of the material and the color blue I chose. I usually wear a L but had to go with an XL on this one. It’s perfect for cooler weather without being bulky or scratchy. And subtle message is a good conversation starter (ie, “what victory is that?”). You’ll h happy with this item v
