Moina Michael Stamp Issued

The U.S. Post Office issued a 3-cent Moina Michael commemorative stamp in first-day-of-issue ceremonies in Athens, Ga. Born in Good Hope, Ga. on Aug. 15, 1869, she is best remembered as “The Poppy Lady,” a name she was given for originating Poppy Day to sell poppies for the benefit of disabled and needy veterans.
