Beautiful Louis Garneau Battle Born Jersey. Featuring a full zipper and club fit. Nevada’s nickname, “Battle Born,” dates back to the Civil War. Thanks to the research of State Archives Manager Jeff Kintop, we know that constitutional delegate, and future Nevada Congressman, Thomas Fitch noted on July 6, 1864 that "Our state will be battle-born..." People refer to Battle Born as the state’s motto, a common misnomer. In fact, the second state constitutional convention adopted the motto “All For Our Country” which can be found on the Nevada State Seal and is on the back of the jersey.
