(WTVY) — The U.S. Postal Service will honor Alabama's Bicentennial with a new stamp.
The stamp features a photograph taken at sunset in Cheaha State Park. Alabama photographer Joe Miller took the picture from the park’s Pulpit Rock Trail. With Pulpit Rock in the foreground, most of the area in the valley below the overlook is part of the Talladega National Forest, which surrounds the state park.
The stamp will be issued in Huntsville – site of Alabama’s First Constitutional Convention – on Feb. 23 at Constitution Hall Park.
The Alabama stamp is one of several new releases from USPS in 2019.
“The miniature works of art illustrated in the 2019 stamp program offer something for everyone’s interest about American history and culture,” said U.S. Postal Service Stamp Services Executive Director Mary-Anne Penner. “From legendary poet Walt Whitman to the entertainment genius of Gregory Hines to the majestic beauty of our Wild and Scenic Rivers, this program is diverse and wide ranging and tells America’s story on stamps.”
