Stamping American Memory: Collectors, Citizens, & the Post

Thank you, National Postal Museum!

 

After Omaha's triumph is properly won,

Other towns, not forgetting our own,

Will be fully entitled to do so as she's done;

In this thing she must not stand alone.

And if some day the crush

Of the Jubilee rush

 Uncle Sam and his factory swamps,

The old Sammy will moan,

"Ah, had I only known

I'd have sat on those Omaha stamps."

Unknown, “Untitled Poem,” Mekeel’s Weekly Stamp News
(reprinted from the Pittsburgh Leader) 11, no. 7 (February 17, 1898): 78.
