Arago: 1-cent Washington & Greene

1-cent Washington & Greene

The 1-cent Army Issue of December 15, 1936, has George Washington's residence at Mount Vernon as its central design. Portraits of Washington and Nathanael Greene flank the image of Mount Vernon. Greene became one of Washington's most valued generals in the Revolutionary War, taking the lead in several major campaigns. He was widely viewed as the heir apparent if Washington should be killed or incapacitated.
