Since writing recently about William Henry Harrison, the 9th president has been showing up a lot in my life.
There’s a new “Tippecanoe and Tyler Too” t-shirt available from RetroCampaigns.com. My students also convinced me to look at the Drunk History website. One of the videos features Harrison (warning: if you’re sensitive about drinking or cursing, don’t watch):
I suggested some ideas for new t-shirts to Retro Campaigns. Who wouldn’t want an “Old Hickory Doesn’t Bend” or “Sly Fox of Kinderhook” t-shirt to wear to class? As for Drunk History, I think anything they did would pale in comparison to Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson.
