Happy Independence Day to all my US based readers! Here are some links I’ve rounded up to help bring some History to your day, both fun and serious!
– These prints from SharpWriter – after all, what’s more ‘Merican than Teddy Roosevelt fighting Big Foot with a Tommy Gun while holding an American Flag?
– These shirts by Lizzywhimsy – Next time I have some extra $$ I’m definitely buying the Cane Fight! tee.
– Retro Campaigns – Retrocampaigns.com sells retro campaign tees from presidential races through the years. Their shop is currently down, as apparently they’re launching a new site soon, but their tumblr is still up where they post all sorts of fun stuff from the campaigns of yesteryear.
– LadyHistory on Tumblr – LadyHistory is a US government teacher who runs pretty much my favorite tumblr blog ever. Home of the Captioned Adventures of George Washington, and today particularly, basically the patriotic center of tumblr – she really kicks it in for the 4th! She also has a Redbubble site where she sells tees.
– Final Transcript of the Declaration of Independence AND the rough draft from Monticello.org (online home of Thomas Jefferson’s Home – and while we’re at it here’s the site for George Washington’s Mount Vernon too).
Enjoy the day!
