An American History Album is a beautifully illustrated survey of the miniature works of art issued by the United States Postal Service to mark significant historical events. Created by some of the bes... t artists and finest engravers of their day, these stamps fashion a portrait of the history, values and accomplishments of the United States. The stamps in An American History Album were hand-selected from the outstanding collection of the Smithsonian National Postal Museum to reflect the book's eight themes: Heritage and Values: the ideas, symbols, beliefs and institutions that make America unique; Discovery and Exploration: the New World and the 13 colonies; Civil Wars: how the American Revolution and the War Between the States shaped the nation; Manifest Destiny: how the pioneers crossed the American wilderness to reach the Pacific; Transportation and Communication: how ships, canals, railroads, planes, automobiles and the telegraph united the young nation; The Greatest Generation: the profound effect of the Great Depression and World War II; These United States: a brief look at each state and the postage stamp that honours it; The Art of the Stamp: how stamp subjects are chosen and designs created. An American History Album will appeal to history buffs, stamp collectors, teachers, art enthusiasts and general readers. It serves as a graphic reminder that the American dream, as crafted in the Declaration of Independence and the American Constitution, remains alive and well.
