Alabama Speaker of the House Mac McCutcheon helped unveil the Alabama Statehood Forever Stamp in February during ceremonies in Huntsville, site of the state’s first Constitutional Convention in 1819. “It was what happened at this spot 200 years ago that helped bring the state of Alabama into existence,” McCutcheon said. “It created not just the state of Alabama, but a great future that continues and that we continue to celebrate.” As part of the dedication ceremony and to honor the state’s bicentennial, legislators re-enacted the signing of the constitution with a quill pen on parchment. The Alabama Forever Stamp can be purchased at The Postal Store at, by calling 800-STAMP24 (800-782-6724), or at Post Office locations.
