Fort McHenry

Fort McHenry

The War of 1812, sometimes called “the forgotten conflict,” was a two-and-a-half-year confrontation with Great Britain that brought the United States to the verge of bankruptcy and disunion. With The War of 1812: Fort McHenry Forever stamp issuance, the U.S. Postal Service continues its commemoration of the bicentennial of a war that ultimately helped forge our national identity and gave us our national anthem, “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

The War of 1812: Fort McHenry stamp will be available tomorrow as a First-Class Mail Forever stamp by going to USPS.com.
