2-cent Sullivan Expedition Sesquicentenary Major General John Sullivan single

This commemorative honors the 150th anniversary of Maj. Gen. John Sullivan's expedition against the Iroquois. It is a single 2-cent red stamp issued on June 17, 1929. The campaign's success is credited with weakening the alliance between the Iroquois and the British and helping facilitate the westward expansion of the new nation.
