Two new map cards for my state map collection arrived: Virginia and West Virginia!
The West Virginia card comes from Trina and the Virginia card comes from Christina. West Virginia used to be part of Virginia, until the American Civil War, when it succeeded to form its own state. West Virginia was officially admitted to the Union on June 20, 1863. It was the only state to succeed from a Confederate state.
Trina used a nice stamp on her card. This stamp was released to use on wedding invitations and such, but it also looks nice on a postcard:
It shows some romantic white roses.
I’m hoping to finish my map collection before the end of 2013. Do you collect map cards?
