The Whiskey Rebellion began in 1791 in response to an excise tax on domestic distilled spirits under new President George Washington. Until 1794 there was an ongoing resistance to the collection of the tax, which was finally suppressed by a force of nearly 13,000 militiamen headed by Washington himself. The Rebellion played a major part in creating early political parties in the United States and the tax was eventually repealed under Thomas Jefferson in 1802.
This shirt is an homage to our brave countrymen who rebelled against taxation without local representation only two decades after fighting for the same ideals in the Revolutionary War.
Cheers to them!
Our shirts run a little small and are athletic fit so if you are in between sizes or are unsure, please order up one size.

Wife scored major points
I bought this shirt for my husband and he really liked it. It was long when he first tried it on but after washing and drying it once, he says it fits perfectly!!! He wants more of them. Little does he know that he is getting some more for Christmas. Thank you!
Patriotism at its BEST!!!!
Keep up the good work gang! I’m very particular about my t shirts and that’s why I continue to buy from y’all. Style and design are exactly what I like. I’m not a big fan of other companies that use wacky designs to show their patriotism. Another reason why I don’t mind at all to spend a bit more on your shirts is because I don’t have to worry about them shrinking the first time I was them. Keep using the 60/40 blend. It looks and feels great. Customer for life here in Texas!! How about some unstructured trucker hats in the near future? The Whiskey Rebellion is exactly what I knew it would be..... simple and amazing. Thanks Gang!
