Don't Tread on Me T-Shirt
Considered one of the first flags in America, the Don’t Tread on Me flag was presented to the colonies' first commander-in-chief of the Navy by Colonel Christopher Gadsden of South Carolina. The snake was used as early as 1751 by Benjamin Franklin to express dissatisfaction with the British government. It was popularized by others, including Paul Revere.
This bright yellow t-shirt features a large rattlesnake coiled and ready to strike with the words Don’t Tread on Me in black capital letters below. The logo of George Washington’s Mount Vernon is printed on the right sleeve.
T-shirt offered in five adult sizes. Made of 100% preshrunk cotton. Machine wash cool, tumble dry low, do not bleach.
