Proclamation of Peace Stamp

US Postage Stamps: 1933


Proclamation of Peace / Hasbrouck House Stamp

This small violet three cent stamp was issued on April 19, 1933 to commemorate 150th anniversary of George Washington’s “Proclamation of Peace” which officially ended the Revolutionary War.  The stamp displays the Hasbrouck House in New York which served as Washington’s headquarters at the time.

The Hasbrouck house was built in 1725, long before the start of the Revolutionary War, and was rebuilt on the original foundation in 1750.  The house was expanded and improved over the next 25 years.  Washington arrived in April 1782 and used the house as his headquarters until August 1783.  The house still stands today and is now part of the Washington’s Headquarters State Historic Site in Newburgh, New York along where it has been transformed into a historical museum.
