Battle of Gettysburg 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 1863 Battle of Gettysburg as well as the two major commanders of the battle. You'll see Confederate general Robert E. Lee and Union general George G. Meade on each stamp. The scenes pictured include: Union positions near Cemetery Ridge, Union artillery Hazlitt's Battery in action, and Union artillery with Cemetery Hill in the distance. I was impressed by how much history is pictured in these miniature masterpieces – they bring the past to life!
