The War of 1812, sometimes called “the forgotten conflict,” was a confrontation with Great Britain that brought the United States to the verge of bankruptcy and disunion. The U.S. Postal Service issued 4 stamps in commemoration of the bicentennial of a war that ultimately helped forge our national identity and gave us our national anthem, “The Star-Spangled Banner.” The 4 stamps are: The USS Constitution, issued 2012, the Battle of Lake Erie, 2013, Fort McHenry, 2014, and the Battle of New Orleans, 2015.
