Battle Of Antietam 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 1862 Battle of Antietam as well as the two major commanders of the battle. You'll see Confederate general Robert E. Lee and Union general George B. McClellan on each stamp. The stamps picture the Iron Brigade at Dunker Church, a battle scene by Kurz and Allison, the 51st New York and 51st Pennsylvania at Burnside’s Bridge, and fallen soldiers on the battlefield. I was impressed by how much history is pictured in these miniature masterpieces – they bring the past to life!
