The 20 stamp designs that make up this minisheet honoring the Civil War are a representative balance not only of the North and South, but also of African Americans and Native Americans. It also includes many of the names generally associated with the Civil War. The 10 images representing the North are: 16th U.S. President Abraham Lincoln, Lt. General Ulysses S. Grant, Maj. Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman, Maj. Gen. Winfield Scott Hancock, Vice Adm. David Glasgow Farragut, Nurse Clara Harlowe Barton, Abolitionist Harriet Ross Tubman, Journalist-Orator Frederick Douglass, and the battles of Gettysburg and Shiloh. Confederate images are: Confederate President Jefferson Davis, Gen. Robert Edward Lee; Lt. Gen. Thomas Jonathan "Stonewall" Jackson, Gen. Joseph Eggleston Johnston, Rear Adm. Raphael Semmes, Diarist Mary Boykin Miller Chesnut, Nurse Phoebe Yates Levy Pember, Brig. Gen. Stand "Degataga" Watie, and the battle of Chancellorsville. One of the battles, the USS Monitor and the CSS Virginia naval battle, was a draw. Confederate forces had captured the USS Merrimack and renamed it the CSS Virginia at the time of the famous battle with the USS Monitor.
