Battle Of Greenbrier River Comes To Life On Mint Stamp Sheet
Discover real Civil War history on this mint stamp sheet. These commemorative stamps prove that "a picture is worth a thousand words." Sheet features four face-different stamps with scenes from the 1861 Battle of Greenbrier River as well as the two major commanders of the battle. You'll see Confederate general Henry R. Jackson and Union general Joseph H. Reynolds on each stamp. The stamps picture a map of the battle area, a skirmish along the Greenbrier River, Union forces assembling near the river, and a battle scene in which the Confederates suffered six dead and 35 wounded. I was impressed by how much history is pictured in these miniature masterpieces – they bring the past to life!
