Canadian Stamps Issue: The War of 1812 – Laura Secord and Charles de Salaberry

Canada Post have a new issue on June 20th, dedicated to The War of 1812. The stamps conclude the series honoring heroes from the War of 1812, depicting the portraits of Laura Secord and Charles de Salaberry.

2013_war_of_1812

The War of 1812 was a 32-month military conflict between the United States and the British Empire and their Indian allies which resulted in no territorial change between the Empire and the US, but a resolution of many issues which remained from the American War of Independence.

Stamp designer Susan Scott led the charge on this year’s issue, trying to highlight the connections in the heroic stories through the background of the stamps. Challenged with maintaining historical accuracy, she turned to costume experts, while injecting some drama into the stamps.
