2013 46¢ Patriotic Star

As Americans, the sight of the “red, white, and blue” floating in the breeze stirs our deepest sense of patriotism.  And while it seems the colors are inseparable from both our flag and the nation’s history, that’s not the case.  Ironically, the Founding Fathers put a great deal of effort into designing the Great Seal of the United States.  When it came time to pick a flag, they merely modeled it after the seal.
 
Devotion to the National Flag was weak at first, as many considered it to be a military banner.  At that time, people also tended to view themselves as citizens of their state first and Americans second.  That all changed after the 1861 bombardment of Fort Sumter.  The thought of rebels forcing Major Robert Anderson to lower the American Flag was too much for most Northerners to bear.  Suddenly, the red, white, and blue became the cause patriots huddled around.
 
Six days later, Anderson arrived in New York City for a rally, where the Fort Sumter flag was flown from the equestrian statue of George Washington.  Over 100,000 people packed Union Square in what was likely the largest public gathering up to that time.  The Fort Sumter flag was then taken across the North, where it was “auctioned” in each town to raise money for the war effort.  In 1865, the flag – now a patriotic symbol – was raised over Fort Sumter once more.
  
Artist Nancy Stahl created the art for the Patriotic Star stamp.  Her idea for the stamp was to combine stars and stripes into one shape, resulting in a round-pointed star made up of red, white, and blue ribbons.
