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 lieutenant general James Longstreet and Union major general Oliver O. Howard on each stamp. The scenes pictured include: behind the breastworks on Culp's Hill, Jubal Early's attack on East Cemetery Hill, CSA 2nd Maryland Infantry at Culp's Hill, and Confederate pickets on Culp's Hill. I was impressed by how much history is pictured in these miniature masterpieces – they bring the past to life!
