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 The Rebellion played a major part in creating early political parties in the United States and the tax was eventually repealed under Thomas Jefferson in 1802.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.

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.
