Limited Edition! Museum T-Shirt in Union Camouflage

25.00

We’ve just made a limited edition shirt! It’s our official museum seal, screenprinted in yellow on a traditional camouflage t-shirt!

These were specially designed in the style of the t-shirts that United Mine Workers union members roll up in every time they’re out in force fighting for their member’s rights! The UMWA Local 1440 in Matewan is central to the story of the Mine Wars era that we tell in our museum, and this shirt was specially designed to honor their historical legacy as well as their continued commitment to community work in the town of Matewan.

The back of the shirt bears a quote from the indomitable Mother Jones that helped inspire the creation of our Museum: "I will tell the truth wherever I please!"

Screenprinted by the good folks at iDesign Graphix in South Williamson, Kentucky. All shirts are a men’s cut. 100% cotton. Designed by our creative director/curator Shaun Slifer.
