USPS Joins Alabama’s Bicentennial Celebration

Alabama state senator Arthur Orr appeared in Madison County recently for one of many events to celebrate Alabama’s 200th birthday. The principle purpose of this celebratory event was to unveil the United States Postal Service’s commemorative Forever stamp for the state of Alabama.

A Forever stamp is a special piece of postage whose rates remain the same from the day they become available. The Alabama Forever stamp was based off a photograph captured by the state’s own Joe Miller and features a breathtaking view of the Talladega National Forest from Cheaha State Park.

This is just one of many events that will celebrate Alabama’s statehood this year, and you can read more here about how Coca-Cola UNITED is celebrating. And be sure to check out the video to learn more about Alabama’s statehood and the honor imparted by the United States Postal Service!
