After showing great courage in a battle against the Crow Indians, Yotanka Tatanka was rewarded with the name "Sitting Bull." His determination to defend Native American hunting grounds inspired the Sioux, Cheyenne, and Arapahoes to a victory over General Custer's army in the battle of Little Bighorn. Sitting Bull is pictured on the 28¢ Great Americans stamp.
 
Issued between 1980 and 1999, the Great Americans definitive series features 63 designs, making it the largest set of face different Regular Issue stamps issued in the 20th century. One stamp honors a couple (Lila and Dewitt Wallace) while the remaining 62 commemorate individuals.
 
The series is characterized by a standard definitive size, simple design and monochromatic colors. The Bureau of Engraving and Printing produced most of the stamps, but some were printed by private firms. Several stamps saw multiple printings. The result is many different varieties, with tagging being the key to understanding them.
