The story behind the design: Our original design shows George 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 in an American made woven throw blanketshort-sleeved crewneck shirt, longsleeved shirt in indigo, a women's v-neck shirt in Vintage navywoven socks that are made in the USA, and a sticker, magnet, and enamel pin.

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. 

 


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.

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.
