I have lots of stamps that commemorate different branches of the Armed Forces, especially the Marines. I also have a few that acknowledged Civil War heroes. But the definition of "hero" has changed dramatically in some parts of the country since those days. I don't expect to see any more stamps like these floating around in my life time.
Walter Williams is a college professor and a long time conservative commentator. On my old blog, I used to publish his articles pretty frequently. He was kind enough to give me his permission to do so, something not every writer is willing to do.
I found this while doing some research on the stamps, and I thought it might be interesting for people who haven't really read a lot about the War Between the States. Williams has put up with a lot of criticism and abuse from the left over the years. He's an unsung American Hero. If you read World Net Daily you are probably already familiar with him.
