Blue Licks Battlefield State Park Shirt
Blue Licks Battlefield State Park Kentucky tee. Originally described as a gathering place for animals to lick the salt deposit runoff from watering holes, the area is better known for its place in United States history. This is the location where the American Revolution ended. The state park features a monument commemorating the August 19, 1782 battle of Blue Licks, a skirmish which included Daniel Boone himself. Many Kentuckians perished, including Boone's own son. Every year a reenactment of the battle is stage in the park.
This design was produced around the mid 20th century for decals that would be sold at truck stops and tourist locations across the nation; a time when America was hitting the road in record numbers. The decals were designed to be dipped in water and placed on your vehicle or mobile home to show where you've been. Because we care so much about travel, we've decided to preserve these for your wearable pleasure!
