Mint Stamp Tributes to America’s Vice Presidents

Holding our nation’s second-highest office, America’s vice presidents are “one heartbeat away from the presidency.”  Now you can own a sheet of mint stamps honoring America’s fifth and sixth vice presidents – Elbridge Gerry and Daniel Tompkins. 

Gerry was James Madison’s second vice president, elected in 1812 following the death of George Clinton.  His name is famous today for the term Gerrymandering, the creation of odd-shaped electoral districts, a practice he allowed as governor of Massachusetts.  As vice president, he staunchly supported Madison’s War of 1812 policies, but died less than two years into his term in office.  James Monroe’s vice president, Daniel Tompkins used his own funds to arm and pay the New York militia when he served as governor during the War of 1812.  He spent much of his time as vice president seeking repayment, and ultimately won.  He died just 99 days after leaving office, making him the shortest-lived vice president and the vice president with the shortest post-vice presidency life.

Now you can add this history and the accomplishments of our early vice presidents to your collection – order yours today.
