3-cent Peace of 1783 Washington's headquarters at Newburgh single

On April 19, 1933, a violet 3-cent stamp was issued to commemorate the 150th anniversary of George Washington's proclamation of peace, which officially ended the Revolutionary War on that date in 1783. Washington issued the proclamation from his headquarters at the Hasbrouck House in Newburgh, New York. The house with Washington's flag flying above it is the stamp's central design.
