From 1987-1990, the U.S. Postal Service issued a set of stamps commemorating the signing of the Constitution by representatives of the first 13 Colonies. The stamps were issued in the 200th year after each state approved the Constitution, in the order each colony became a state. Every stamp shows traditional symbols of the state.
Maryland, with its variety of natural attributes - mountains, seashore, farmland - and its diversity of opinion over the last 200 years, has become known as "America in miniature".
