On July 25, 2012, the Marshall Islands Postal Service issued five new stamps commemorating the 150th Anniversary of the American Civil War. The American Civil War resulted in the preservation of the Union, the end of slavery, the devastation of the Southern economy and the loss of over 600,000 American lives. Secretary of State William H. Seward, serving under President Abraham Lincoln, referred to the war as "the irrepressible conflict," an inevitable clash between vastly different philosophies and ways of life. Heroes were born and legends were forged in the great battles of The War Between the States. This 2012 Marshall Islands stamp issue features reproductions of five United States postage stamps issued from 1961 to 1965 to commemorate the war's centennial. Each stamp pays tribute to one of its most famous battles: Fort Sumter (1861), Shiloh (1862), Gettysburg (1863), The Wilderness (1864) and Appomattox (1865).
