First Great Seal Committee – July/August 1776

"Resolved, That Dr. Franklin, Mr. J. Adams and Mr. Jefferson, be a committee, to bring in a device for a seal for the United States of America." – July 4, 1776, Journals of Continental Congress

For the design team, Congress chose three of the five men who were on the committee that drafted the Declaration of Independence. Although these distinguished committee members were among the ablest minds in the new nation, they had little knowledge of heraldry. To help convey their vision, they chose the artist Pierre Eugčne Du Simitičre to work with them. The four men consulted among themselves between July 4 and August 13, then each brought before the committee a suggestion for the design of the Great Seal.

Benjamin Franklin's proposal is preserved in a note of his own handwriting:

"Moses standing on the Shore, and extending his Hand over the Sea, thereby causing the same to overwhelm Pharaoh who is sitting in an open Chariot, a Crown on his Head and a Sword in his Hand. Rays from a Pillar of Fire in the Clouds reaching to Moses, to express that he acts by Command of the Deity.

"Motto, Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God."

Great as Always

Love the shirt, love it’s message, looks great on my husband and we continue to be return customers!

Poor quality

The second time I washed the shirt the threading on the bottom seam of the shirt came unwound somehow, wrapping around the rest of my clothes. The shirt is now unwearable after only one use.

I like the design but maybe a better quality t-shirt. Something with better material

Buy American Quality Shirt!

Nice heavy American Made shirt with strong stitching. Transfer on shirt is solid and perfect. Soft cotton but not cheap feeling. Worth every penny!!!
