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.
On June 21, 1788, New Hampshire became the ninth and deciding state to ratify the Constitution of the United States. This made the small New England state "the state that made us a nation".
