This is one of our original shirts we launched back in 2013. Ten years later we are re-launching it!
While in Paris in 1787, Thomas Jefferson wrote a letter to John Adams' son-in-law and New York Representative, William Stephens Smith which included the famous quote, "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure."
The small flag on the front of the shirt is commonly known as the Pine Tree Flag and was flown in the American Revolution from Washington's Cruisers, which patrolled the Charles River in Massachusetts. The pine tree itself has much symbolism in ship building and owes itself to the White Pine found in New England.

This product is made especially for you as soon as you place an order, which is why it takes us a bit longer to deliver it to you. Making products on demand instead of in bulk helps reduce overproduction, so thank you for making thoughtful purchasing decisions!
