"Victory" long-sleeved shirt - Limited run 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.

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

As shown above, also available as a short-sleeved crewneck shirt.  (The design is the same on both.)

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.

If your order includes additional items, please indicate in the comment section of the order form whether you want the items that are in-stock shipped immediately.

Proceeds support our mission.

 

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.

Nice shirt

Shipped quickly, customer service was great, and the shirt is softer yet than advertised. One note: I have long arms and the XL sleeves extend past the wrist.

By shirt!!!

I love my Victory shirt. It washes well, too. The only problem is sizing. You will need to order two sizes up from your current size as the shirts run a little on the smaller side. Otherwise, a great purchas.

Thanks, Dana, for your review and your note. This is the first we've heard that this shirt isn't true to size. We've posted size charts for our shirts, and encourage folks to double-check them if they are in doubt, which sounds like good advice for folks considering this shirt, which is the same one we use for our Teddy Roosevelt 'History Nerd' shirt.

My New Favorite!

As the owner of many of the History List shirts, it is high praise for me to call this my favorite. The fabric is extra soft, fit is true to size and comfy, color is universally flattering....but the best part is the history behind the design. It's a definite conversation piece, and I have had a number of people ask about the significance of the design. A superb find!
