Gadsden and Culpeper is “the Official ‘Don’t Tread on Me’ Outfitter.
They’ve just started a company blog, and this week they asked me if they could link to my blog. Of course, I said sure. So they will be linking to me shortly. But I didn’t want to wait to return the favor, after I saw their cool site.
The Tea Party and “9/12″ movements have repopularized the Gadsden “Don’t Tread on Me” image, as well as Benjamin Franklin’s “Join or Die” snake and the Culpeper Minuteman flag.
Gadsden and Culpeper has all this great stuff and more.
You can get car flags, stickers, t-shirts, hoodies, license plate covers, mugs and LOTS more, with the “Join or Die,” “Don’t Tread On Me” and Culpeper images.
They also offer historical U.S. flags, flags of each branch of the service and tons of other things.
Gadsden and Culpeper ships to APO and FPO addresses, and you get FREE shipping to any address, on orders over $100.
Particularly cool is their “History” page, which tells the stories behind these historical images.
Here is the story behind the Gadsden and Culpeper company:
We (Larry and Patrick) founded Gadsden and Culpeper American Heritage Shoppe, Ltd. on October 1st 2001 outside of Albany, NY. Like all of us, we were deeply affected and angered by the 9/11 terrorist attacks, and like most of us, we adorned our homes with the Stars and Stripes to display our pride, unity and resilience.
Being friends since grammar school, we both have accumulated a collection of historical flags over the years, and we went into our attics and closets and pulled out our Gadsden Flags. Never feeling threatened like this before, we both added the Don’t Tread on Me flag alongside our American Flag.
