Invitation: Fort McHenry Stamp Dedication
By N.S.U.S.D. of 1812 on Aug 26, 2014 03:52 pm
Dear Members of the United States Daughters of 1812,
Please join us for the U. S. Postal Service’s First-Day-of-Issue Dedication for the Limited-Edition® War of 1812: Ft. McHenry stamp, Saturday, September 13th at 11 am. The event will be held at Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine, within the historic Star Fort, 2400 E. Fort Avenue, Baltimore, MD 21230.
Due to extremely large expected crowds and limited off street parking the National Park Service and the City of Baltimore suggest that you take public transportation to Fort McHenry. Roads will be closed off and all visitors will have to walk some distance to the event space. For these reasons the USPS Events team requests that you plan to arrive at least one hour before the event start time.
More information on public transport to Fort McHenry is available here: http://www.starspangled200.com/star-spangled-spectacular/fort-mchenry/
This ceremony is free and open to the public with first-come, first-served seating. Stamp sales will be available on-site along with First-Day covers and other philatelic (stamp collecting) products.
