Palmyra postmark honors monument dedication

Press release

The United States Postal Service (USPS) issued a pictorial postmark Feb. 12 at the dedication of Fluvanna’s memorial to the Emancipation Proclamation and the end of the Civil War.

Palmyra’s postmaster, Guy M. Brice, coordinated with the Fluvanna Historical Society to offer the postmark. It first became available at a temporary philatelic station set up for the event and staffed by Brice and postal employee Roberta Brown.

The special hand stamp remains available through April 18 at the Palmyra post office and through mail-back service pursuant to guidelines found on the USPS website.

Palmyra’s pictorial postmark is pictured above affixed to a cachet available from the historical society.

“We were very grateful to David Bearr and Guy Brice for collaborating to make this possible,” said Tricia Johnson, Fluvanna Historical Society director. “The special postal cancellation helped make the dedication of the new memorial even more exciting. People who attended were very pleased to be able to take home a special memento of the day.”

Cachets are available for purchase at the Fluvanna Historical Society. For more information about the cachets and postal cancellation, call 434-589-7910 or email

Nearly 23 years ago the USPS issued a postmark to celebrate Fluvanna’s provision of the first rural delivery service in Virginia.
