Like the famous Join or Die political cartoon, the Unite or Die image is meant to have the same representation. It is a disjointed snake making up the colonies of the United States before its formation. The Unite or Die image is very rare and uncommon, and honestly we have had trouble finding more information regarding it. It was seen on John Holt's Masthead of his newspaper, a very bold image and trend for newspapers of the time. Whether it had anymore meaning other than a heading of a newspaper is up in the air. We loved the imagery though and had to use it on a tee. Below is a photo and a link to the original copy where you can buy it for a cool $18,000.
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.
Ultra Soft Tri-Blend (50% Polyester / 25% Cotton / 25% Rayon) construction.
***This shirt is thinner and lighter than our normal shirts because of the Tri-Blend vintage construction. Please be aware it's a little more slim-fitting than a regular t-shirt -- you may have to order up one size.
I love the blue color with the white/gray printing as well as the 1776 Logo on the back under the collar. This is my second purchase of this shirt (different color). My advice is if you're on the fence about size, go up...not down. I'm in between sizes but the XL fits me better than the L. I'd love the Gadsen T shirt with the logo on the front instead of the back and the 1776 Logo in the same place as this shirt....up high right under the back of the collar....subtle but noticeable.
Great Products! Wore them while out in Utah and received many compliments...
This is becoming my favorite go-to shirt and the staff was super helpful in the store with sizing and information.
Love the Unite or Die shirt
I bought this shirt to wear for the Fourth of July. It's perfect for history-buff American patriots. Quality material and very comfortable. I recommend 1776 United list the fact that it's made in the USA on the product page because I would've bought it sooner.
Why didn’t I buy this earlier? !!
Great fit, many positive remarks from friends and I would definitely buy it again, even if just to support your organization—‘Merica!
