Ernie Pyle (1900-1945)
Journalist
Born near Dana, Indiana, Pyle became one of the best-known reporters in America with his syndicated column covering World War II. Sensitive, insightful, and humorous, Pyle brought the common man’s war to millions of Americans, telling how the nation’s young men lived, and sometimes died, as soldiers. In 1944, Pyle won the Pulitzer Prize for journalism. He traveled with U.S. troops on nearly every front in Africa and Europe, and then went to the Pacific theater. He was killed by a Japanese machine gunner on April 18, 1945, during the battle for Okinawa.

  • 1847 5¢ Benjamin Franklin, red-brown, thin bluish wove paper, imperforate U.S. #1 - First U.S. Postage Stamp

    On July 1, 1847, the first US postage stamps went on sale.  The 5¢ issue of 1847 (US #1) features a portrait of Benjamin Franklin, the man responsible for organizing America's postal service back in the 1700s.  Postal clerks used scissors to cut the stamps from sheets, as perforations weren't in use yet.  Today, US #1 is a valued piece of American postal history and a lucky find in any condition.
