Dr. Joshua D. Colin, Vice President, Area Operations for the Eastern Area United States Postal Service said it was great to bring national attention to American history with the dedication of the stamp. The stamp released on Tuesday Sept. 10 was the second in a series commemorating the War of 1812.
“As the stamps begin their journey,” Dr. Colin said, “they’ll remind everyone of the Battle of Lake Erie.”
