Make no apologies for being an America-loving Sheepdog with our Patriot Sheepdog 1776 American t-shirt. A personal favorite explaining everything I am in 3 words, a Patriot, 1776 (Free American), and a Sheepdog...

One who believes in "A free Country, a Country with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.” 

 Our t-shirts are 100% ring-spun cotton and are soft and comfy. 

What does 100% ring-spun mean? 

The processes for creating regular cotton and ring-spun cotton are totally different. Regular cotton is made from soft vegetable fibers that are twisted together to make yarn, which is then woven to make the material. Most of the industry-standard t-shirts, provide regular cotton t-shirts. Regular cotton is less expensive to make.

Ring-spun cotton, on the other hand, is completely different. Ring-spun yarn is made by twisting and thinning the cotton strands to make a very fine, strong, soft rope of cotton fibers. Ring-spun cotton t-shirts are more durable and last longer than their regular counterparts, and that's what gives our t-shirts that incredibly soft feeling. 

Our T-shirts are pre-shrunk

Have you ever laundered a new t-shirt and discovered that it shrunk two sizes in the wash? If so, you’re probably a fan of preshrunk t-shirts! Preshrunk t-shirts go through a special process that helps the shirts avoid more shrinking later on.

 

Shoulder-to-shoulder taping

Shoulder seams and neck seams are covered by tape or binding for extra durability at stress points. This is a hallmark of high-quality shirt construction.

Printed in America

All of our t-shirts are printed in America in small batches.

What is the Declaration of Independence: What does 1776 stand for?

 The Declaration of Independence is one of the most important documents in the history of the United States. It was an official act taken by all 13 American colonies in declaring independence from British rule.

People in the colonies were unhappy that they did not have a say in their government and still had to pay taxes. The Stamp Act of 1765 collected taxes on paper goods like legal documents, newspapers, and playing cards. In one act of protest, men dumped the cargo of a ship full of British tea into Boston Harbor in 1773; this is now called the Boston Tea Party. In 1775, the colonists went to war with Great Britain.

The war between the colonies and Great Britain was called the American Revolutionary War (1775-1783). A group of men came together in the summer of 1776 to find ways to become independent from Great Britain. The committee included John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, Robert R. Livingston, and Roger Sherman.

Writing the Declaration of Independence

The Declaration of Independence was originally written by Thomas Jefferson. Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, and Jefferson then worked together to make changes to the document. The final draft of the Declaration of Independence was adopted on July 4, 1776, but the actual signing of the final document was on August 2, 1776.

Writing and signing the Declaration of Independence took courage, but it was an important step in the founding of our Government. A famous phrase from the Declaration is “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.”
