This souvenir sheet was issued to honor the 100th anniversary of the issuance of the Trans-Mississippi commemoratives.
 
The Trans-Mississippi Exposition was held in Omaha, Nebraska, June 1 through November 1, 1898. Its goal was to further the progress and development of resources west of the Mississippi.
 
To publicize this event, a set of nine commemorative stamps was issued. Each was printed in a single color and featured an engraving depicting a different western scene.
 
The original intent for the 1898 issues was to print them in two colors. However, due to the Spanish-American War and the increased demand for revenue stamps, resources were re-allocated and the stamps were printed in one color. The 1998 issues have been printed in two colors, using the only existing original bi-color dies.
 
One of these stamps, Western Cattle in Storm, is still considered one of the most beautiful, finely engraved stamps ever issued.
