Since my AP article on "West Pointers on Stamps" appeared in February 1989, three additional U.S. Military Academy graduates have been pictured on stamps. Two of them are on stamps in the current U.S. Civil War sheet.Confederate General Joseph Eggleston Johnston was a West Point graduate of theClass of 1829. Union Major General Winfield Scott Hancock was a graduate of the Class of 1844. From the Class of 1950, Philippines President Fidel Valdez Ramos appears on a stamp of that nation saluting U.S. President Bill Clinton's visit in 1994.
