The Incredable History!

The Harlem Hellfighters were an all-Black infantry regiment that served in World War I & II. Despite facing discrimination and segregation in the military, they became one of the most decorated units in the war. The Hellfighters spent more time in combat than any other American unit and never lost a trench to the enemy. Their bravery and sacrifice paved the way for future generations of African American soldiers and helped to challenge racial prejudices both in the military and in American society as a whole.

The Harlem Hellfighters, officially known as the 369th Infantry Regiment, was formed in 1916 in New York City. It was made up of black soldiers, many of whom were from Harlem, and was commanded by white officers. The regiment was initially designated for non-combat duties but was later sent to France in 1918 to fight on the front lines.

Upon their arrival in France, the Hellfighters were assigned to the French Army because the U.S. military did not want to integrate black soldiers into their forces. The French recognized the value of the Hellfighters and gave them their famous nickname, the "Men of Bronze," after their bravery in battle. The nickname "Hell-fighters" come from their German foes.

The Hellfighters fought in some of the bloodiest battles of the war, including the Meuse-Argonne Offensive and the Battle of Belleau Wood. They spent a total of 191 days on the front lines, longer than any other American unit in World War I. The regiment also never lost a trench to the enemy and received numerous awards and honors, including the Croix de Guerre and the Legion of Honor from the French government.

Despite their heroic service, the Hellfighters faced racism and discrimination both in the military and upon their return home. However, their bravery and sacrifice helped to challenge racial prejudices in America and paved the way for future generations of African American soldiers.

Today, the Harlem Hellfighters are remembered as a symbol of black pride and military excellence. Their legacy continues to inspire and educate people about the contributions of African Americans to American history and the fight for equality.

Care Guide

  • Printed apparel can be machine-washed cold, inside-out on a gentle cycle with a mild detergent and like colors.
  • Use non-chlorine bleach only when necessary. You shouldn't use any fabric softeners or dry-clean the items.
  • Printed apparel can be tumble-dried on a low cycle, but hang-dry works best.
  • When it comes to ironing, use cool iron inside-out.
  • Don't iron the print.

We use the latest printing technology to offer a wide variety of products and color options. We use high-quality inks that won't fade for a long time if taken care of properly.

Excellent T-shirt

Great fit, great color, good value, fast shipping. It is my honor to rep the heroic Harlem Hellfighters, who played a pivotal role in bringing the Great War to a close. The 369th represented the best of America, and each of these men deserves a place of honor in our history books. Black history is American history. I was pleased to find this item and it was a no-brainer to buy it.

  • A Culture Vulture Free Zone

    Look, we're all for inclusion and the diverse celebration of Black History. However, it has become increasingly common for NON Black-owned companies to sell Black Culture while also falsely claiming to be Black-owned. This practice of cultural appropriation is not only dishonest but also disrespectful to the Black community. By profiting off of Black culture without actually supporting or empowering Black-owned businesses, these companies perpetuate systemic inequality and contribute to the erasure of Black voices and perspectives. It is important for consumers to do their research and support authentic Black-owned businesses that prioritize social justice, equity, and circulation of the Black dollar; rather than those that simply capitalize on the latest cultural trends.
