This oil painting of General George Washington’s Headquarters is sure to stand out against any decorating style. Its vibrant coloring is a stunning addition to any room, and the beautiful paint of the piece brings a gorgeous original touch.


For the History Buff

Granted, The Great Republic really is the place for a History Buff year-round, but gifting this holiday has never been easier! Try this original signature from Alexander Hamilton:

Your history lover friend will be stunned to receive this original antique. The letter from the Treasury Department is signed by Alexander Hamilton himself and is accompanied by an original Jacques Reich portrait.


For the Guy That Has Everything

We know the struggle: trying to find a gift for someone who seems to have everything can be a task and a half. Thankfully, we’ve got you covered. Check out this unique campaign bandana:

This bandana was produced in support of Theodore Roosevelt for his 1904 campaign. The design is exceedingly unique, and rare, since the campaign info is printed on a thin bandana rather than a poster. We’re sure you won’t find anything else like it out there.
