Dude and I took a ride to get some gasoline for the riding lawnmower and we got 12-15 drops of rain on the windshield.
The vast majority of U.S. postage stamps feature men, but in December of 1902 Martha Washington became the first American woman to receive that status. The 8-cent stamp with her image honored her as the nation’s original First Lady, because she supported her husband’s activities throughout the Revolutionary War as well as during his presidency. Her warm hospitality also helped humanize the couple as “regular people”, not royalty.However, although she was the first American woman to appear on US postage stamps, Martha was not the first female. That honor belongs to the Spanish Queen Isabella, who funded Christopher Columbus’s voyage. Isabella appeared on not one, but three, U.S. stamps in January of 1893.Pocahontas (a Native American woman and chief’s daughter best known for her association with Captain John Smith of the Jamestown Colony in Virginia) was the second American woman to appear on U.S. postage; her 5-cent stamp was issued in April of 1907.Susan B. Anthony was a social reformer and women’s rights activist who played a pivotal role in the women’s suffrage movement. At age 17 she became the New York state agent for the American Anti-Slavery Society. Her 3-cent stamp came out in August of 1936, recognizing her efforts.The 8-cent Amelia Earhart stamp was issued in July of 1963. Amelia was an American aviation pioneer and the first female aviator to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean, so it is fitting that the stamp honoring her was an airmail stamp.
