The Crusades-Middle East Tours

A few weeks ago I was thinking about some of the great teeshirts I've owned over the years. One that I bought at a Pennsic in the 90s was The Black Death-European Tour teeshirt. It was an neat idea doing it as a tour shirt for a heavy metal band.

When I told a friend about it, they thought the Crusades would make a good shirt also. Okay, I'll look into it. I soon found out it wasn't as easy as it appeared. Obviously, there is no consensus about the number of crusades, the scope of each crusade, and whether some expeditions were, or were not, actual crusades.

This left it up to me to find an list I thought fit well with the project and go with it. Below is the final design, a crazed crusader on the front and the list of crusades on the back.

The teeshirt is done for black shirts only. The entire design would need retrofit to put it on the white tees.
