Originally designated a Nebraska state holiday in 1872 to plant trees, when an estimated 1 million trees were planted. It is now an unofficial holiday celebrated throughout the world. This was one of the first U.S. stamps to show identifiable living Americans, the children of the Director of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, and was the last stamp issued at the 2¢ letter rate.
