The To Form A More Perfect Union Issue was released August 30, 2005.

The National Postal Museum extends thanks to the United States Postal Service and to its employees who assisted in the creation of this virtual exhibition: Angelo Wider, Roy Betts, Michael Tidwell, Sheryl Turner, Robert Faruq, Meg Ausman, and Pamela Hyman.

Many of the subjects appearing in this virtual exhibition and on U.S. stamps in general are suggested by the public. Each year, the Postal Service receives from the American public thousands of letters proposing stamp subjects. Every stamp suggestion meeting criteria is considered, regardless of who makes it or how it is presented.
