The George Washington "Victory or Death" scarf is a wonderful reminder of our incredible history. It is a great value and quality reminder of the amazing sacrifices and accomplishments of George Washington. Most highly recommended!
Wow, I love this beautiful GW scarf especially as it is in my favorite color. I wanted to a be history teacher when I graduated high school, but I had a guidance counselor discourage me about it saying there were already too many if you can believe that. Therefore, I just graduated with an English degree. This is a way for me to indulge my passion in history so thank you. I love the scarf has GW's autograph on it too and the "Victory or Death" quote. Great Quality too and fast shipping as always. I love the History List.
I’m so happy with the beauty and quality of the scarf I recently purchased. This will be a Christmas gift and I can’t wait for my niece tp receive it! Thank you for such a high quality product!
This scarf is lovely. It is very soft.
I am pleased with my purchase.
Love the packaging for this item and the quality. Beautiful soft scarf that will help me remember the sacrifices of our Founders every time I wear it.
I am a teacher in Louisiana where it isn't very cold, but I wear my scarf to work almost daily! My students thought it was really cute until they heard it was Washington's signature. Then they laughed. They know I am a huge nerd so they rolled their eyes and said, "Of course it has Washington's name on it or you wouldn't have bought it!"
Well made, comfortable, very nice. Great eyecatcher and conversation piece. I'm so glad I bought it.
