Historian, author and APS member, Leon Reed of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania is our guest. Reed's Stamp Chat focuses on the significance of postal covers during the Civil War, particularly Fort Sumter and secession in the border states. Whether you are an American History buff, a military history enthusiast, a postal history fan or you enjoy looking at illustrations and the meanings of images, this is a terrific presentation that dives deep into the Civil War and American culture at that time.
