First Day of Issue Cover, FDC, Art Craft Engraving Cachet, Unaddressed,
Featured in the design of this stamp is a sketch of a Civil War rifleman crouching behind a tree stump. The drawing style suggests a rapid battlefield sketch, similar to those of Winslow Homer and other combat artists of the period, rather than a toned drawing. The peach blossom paper on which the stamp was printed symbolized the fact that an important phase of the Shiloh battle was fought in a peach orchard.
Cover in Removable Transparent Poly Sleeve and Mailed With Protection,
Made in the USA
