With a history stretching back to the Continental Marines, the Gadsden Flag is one of the more iconic banners in our great nation's history. The image of a coiled rattlesnake is thanks primarily to Ben Franklin who suggested sending live rattlers back to England as a thank you for the convicted criminals the Brits were sending to the colonies. Native only to the Americas, rattlesnakes became as emblematic of the US as bald eagles, only a whole lot more ornery.
The Gadsden Shorts are 110% pure American awesomeness in a yellow, quick dry material that gets more comfortable with every wash. Featuring American Flag motif pockets, an embroidered logo, and stars running up and down the sides, these shorts are perfect for the beach, the couch, or leading your platoon across the beach.
