Stone Mountain Stamp Issued

The U.S. Post Office Department issued a stamp commemorating the completion of the carving of the huge carving on the face of Stone Mountain showing Confederate president Jefferson Davis and generals Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson. The stamp’s issuance came just over four months after formal dedication ceremonies for the carving on May 9.
