United States Commemorative Stamps for the War of 1812
US troops along Jackson's Line fire on British soldiers on a stamp issued January 8, 2015. This was the final US stamp in a War of 1812 series of four marking its bicentennial. Click here to find out more about the Battle of New Orleans.
The War of 1812, sometimes called “the forgotten conflict,” was a confrontation with Great Britain that brought the United States to the verge of bankruptcy and disunion. The U.S. Postal Service issued 4 stamps in 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 4 stamps are: The USS Constitution, issued 2012, the Battle of Lake Erie, 2013, Fort McHenry, 2014, and the Battle of New Orleans, 2015.
