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 The Rebellion played a major part in creating early political parties in the United States and the tax was eventually repealed under Thomas Jefferson in 1802.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!
Whiskey is life
It’s honestly the perfect Fit I.e., not too tight, but hugs you in all the right place. If you love whiskey and a perfect fitting shirt than y’all must buy this.
First purchase but NOT the last!!!
Being a pro photographer for over 20 years I have seen companies come with cool designs and horrible quality time and time again. 1776 is NOT one of those companies!!!! The shipping was fast and honestly this specific shirt has become one of my faves. The quality of shirt itself is quite nice and soft and the screen print is some of the best I have seen. For SURE, order a size larger than what you normally wear however unless you like a bit more tight fitting shirt. So for those of you patriots who conceal carry be sure to get a size bigger!!! For sure ordering some more things once a few new designs that I am waiting on hit the store!
