Burrn’d from Busted Tees

burrnd-busted-teesburnnd-busted-tees

I got to read all about the duel between Burr and Hamilton in the book, The Founding Brothers, but if you haven’t had the same luck as me (/sarcasm), here’s a little blurb from Wikipedia:

The Burr-Hamilton duel was a duel between two prominent American politicians, the former Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton and sitting Vice President Aaron Burr, on July 11, 1804. At the Heights of Weehawken in New Jersey Burr shot and mortally wounded Hamilton. Hamilton was carried to the home of William Bayard on the Manhattan shore, where he died at 2 p.m. the next day.

I feel like this is somewhat of a a detour from Busted Tee’s usual style. That’s definitely not a bad thing–I just don’t usually see them relating to obscure historical events, or at least events that alot of people don’t know about. Either way, if you get the reference, I think it’s pretty damn funny. I also think Busted Tee’s product description is pretty priceless: “Before you feel bad for Alexander Hamilton, keep in mind he was Secretary of the Treasury.”

It’s on sale for $16.99 for the first week. You can grab it at Busted Tees. Use a coupon to save some moolah.

  • That’s funny, I was thinking about using this t-shirt for the editor’s pick of the day on T-Shirt Magazine, but I decided not to (before seeing that you posted it).
