On July 30, the Postal Service will continue its commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War. A souvenir sheet of two stamp designs --- Battle of Mobile Bay, AL, and Petersburg, VA, Campaign --- will be issued.

In Alabama, Postmaster General Patrick R. Donahoe will serve as dedicating official for the First-Day-Of-Issue (FDOI) stamp ceremony at the History Museum of Mobile, 111 South Royale Street in Mobile. The dedication ceremony is free to the public.

One stamp depicts Admiral David G. Farragut’s fleet at the Battle of Mobile Bay, AL, on August 5, 1864. The second stamp depicts the 22nd United States Colored Troops engaged in the June 15-18, 1864, assault on Petersburg, VA. The Petersburg Campaign stamp will be dedicated in Virginia on July 30.

Both Civil War stamps are being issued as Forever stamps which always will be equal in value to the current First-Class Mail one-ounce rate.
