Stamp Set Commemorates:

Captain James Cook – This two-stamp se-tenant issue marks the 200th anniversary of Captain James Cook’s visits to Hawaii and Alaska in 1778.  This issue is unique in that one of the stamps was printed vertically and the other printed horizontally.

Harriet Tubman – This issue honors Harriet Tubman, who was known as the Moses of her people.  A former slave, she escaped bondage by fleeing to Pennsylvania.  However, she returned to the South at least 19 times in order to help more than 300 slaves escape to freedom.

French Alliance – Marks the 200th anniversary of the ratification of the 1778 Treaty of Alliance with France.  Historians agree that the resulting French military and financial support was essential to the winning of the Revolutionary War.

Jimmie Rodgers – Country music legend Jimmie Rodgers is honored with this issue.  Called the “Father of Country Music,” Rodgers was the first person ever inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.  First Day ceremonies for this stamp were held during the annual Jimmie Rodgers Festival, in Rodgers’ hometown of Meridian, Mississippi.

George M. Cohan – Marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of this American actor and popular songwriter, playwright, producer, and director.  Cohan wrote “Yankee Doodle Dandy” and was awarded a special Congressional Medal of Honor for his patriotic songs.

Viking Missions – Launched in 1975, Viking I and Viking II, unmanned space vehicles, carried out research programs on Mars and sent photos and data back to Earth.  They continued to transmit information to Earth for nearly three years.
