Benjamin Franklin once said: "Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety." That quote often comes up in the context of new technology and concerns about government surveillance and safety/protection. The way we look at it, we would rather be free and live dangerously than have our rights stripped away.


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.

I just got this shirt last week from 1776 United and I'm more than proud to wear it! Ben Franklin's quote about Liberty and Security should remind us all that our Rights can't be sold, forgotten, given-up or given-away! 1776 United hit the nail on the head with this one by giving me an all around awesome, patriotic and comfortable shirt. I highly recommend doing business with these veterans. Money very well spent!

This shirt is great. It’s a nice breathable light weight cotton. There isn’t a tag (screen printed!) so you don’t have to worry about that itching your back. The print on the shirt is amazing quality too.

Cool Shirt

Really hits home during this time in history. Quality shirt, true fit, and great graphics.

Love it, but need to take care where I wear it

I live in the SF Bay Area; I take this shirt to mean that though, yes, the US has a checkered past, we learn from it. And it's the system, the framework, that our Founding Fathers created for us to be able to learn from those lessons and implement the changes needed that I love I display that affection with this shirt. But for some people, it does represent the darker side of our history. Neither opinion is wrong, so I feel I need to take care with where and when I wear this shirt. I have the freedom to wear it where and when I like thanks to them (the Founding Fathers), but I have a responsibility to make sound judgement on when I wear it, just out of love for my fellow Americans.
