U.S. #793 featured three naval heroes of the Spanish-American War – Admirals William Sampson, George Dewey, and Winfield Schley. Both officers were at the end of long and distinguished careers when they worked together to completely destroy the Spanish fleet in the Battle of Santiago de Cuba. All six Spanish ships were sunk or captured, while the American force lost only one sailor. 
 
Dewey also served in the war, but was fighting in the Philippines. His victory in the Battle of Manila Bay was so complete that a special medal was created in honor of the event. He is the only American to become Admiral of the Navy.

    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.
