Evacuation Day! A holiday not widely celebrated anymore. But it should be! November 25th 1783 marks the day when the British Army departed New York City after the American Revolution. Entry to the city under General Washington was delayed until the last Union Flag could be removed. The flag had been nailed to a flagpole at Fort George on the Battery at the souther tip of Manhattan. The pole was greased as a final act of defiance. After a number of men attempted to tear down the British flag, wooden cleats were cut and nailed to the pole to form a ladder and army veteran John Van Arsdale was able to climb the pole and remove the flag and replace it with the Stars and Stripes before the British fleet completely sailed out of sight.

This is from our November 2021 Tee Party.

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.

About 1776 United

We created 1776 United to evoke a sense of patriotism found in our forefathers. Most have forgotten to ask themselves not what their country can do for them, but what they can do for their country.

Our dream is to inspire a new wave of patriotism that might lead to the next Greatest Generation. We aim for the clothing we create to embody the many chapters of American history. Each shirt is a cotton reminder of who we are, where we live, and where we're going.
