DTOM Snake left chest print, full back print t-shirt

The Veteran Exempts flag was used in the War of 1812 at the Battle of Plattsburgh, New York.

(Probably the coolest flag we have ever seen)

The Veteran Exempts, commanded by a Captain Melvin L. Woolsey, was a local New York militia company, formed in July of 1812, which was made up of veterans of the American Revolution who were otherwise exempt from military service because of their age. This Veteran Exempts flag may have been used at the Battle of Plattsburgh in upper New York, but no documentation exists that it was in fact used. The Battle, also known as the Battle of Lake Champlain, ended the final British invasion attempt of the northern United States during the War of 1812. Fought shortly before the signing of the Treaty of Ghent, the American victory denied the British leverage to demand exclusive control over the Great Lakes and any territorial gains against the New England states. Little other information is available on the flag or activities of the Veteran Exempts during the War of 1812.

As good as the original

I bought this shirt as a replacement for the same design I bought 10-12 years ago, which had finally 'bit the dust.' A sturdy, comfortable shirt with an Excellent design. I fully expect it to last as long as the original I bought from you.
