Discovering it is still available, today we are looking at the USPS The Civil War 1861 – 1865 Limited Edition Boxed Set, with an issue date of February 7, 2018.
Before beginning, seeing today’s date of September 22 in history, I am mindful of the day in 1862 – “… President Abraham Lincoln issued the preliminary Emancipation Proclamation, declaring all slaves in rebel states should be free as of January 1, 1863.”

First, I’m pointing out the USPS Postal Store SKU 882119 is showing it as “Quantities are limited!” So if you are “thinking” about ordering it, now is the time.
“As one of the most wrenching chapters in the American story, the Civil war continues to shape and frame our identity as a nation. Capture history with this striking 23-page book, containing the five The Civil War mint stamp sheets issued between 2011 and 2015 to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the war.”
The description continues with describing the book and souvenir sheets with custom-embossed box and what a stunning keepsake it makes.
The set is $59.95.
Tomorrow we kick off the new week, and the first day of Fall 2019 welcoming Autumn. Until then.
P.S. Today is daily blog post #1670, the trek continues to #1700!
