The U.S. Postal Service continues its commemoration of the bicentennial of the War of 1812 with the issuance of a Battle of Lake Erie stamp.

The battle produced an American naval hero, Oliver Hazard Perry, and helped the United States take back territory lost to British forces in the opening months of the war. It also introduced two familiar sayings, “Don’t give up the ship” and “We have met the enemy and they are ours.”

The War of 1812: Battle of Lake Erie stamp is being issued as a Forever stamp, meaning it is always equal in value to the current first-class mail one-ounce rate.

For the stamp art, the Postal Service selected William Henry Powell’s famous painting, “Battle of Lake Erie.” The oil-on-canvas painting, completed in 1873, was commissioned by the U.S. Congress and placed at the head of the east stairway in the Senate wing of the Capitol. It depicts Oliver Hazard Perry in the small boat he used to transfer from his ruined flagship, the Lawrence, to the Niagara. A 19th-century engraving of Perry by William G. Jackman (after John Wesley Jarvis) is shown on the reverse of the stamp pane.

Greg Breeding served as art director and designer for the stamp.
