A museum in Civitella del Tronto, Italy details Italian participation with the Confederacy in the American Civil War. Following the Italian Wars of Unification, where the independent southern Italian states were conquered, thousands of Italians fled to the American South. Entire regiments were made up of these Italian immigrants/refugees and many were veterans of the wars that saw their previous homelands conquered, only for the same thing to happen to them on another continent.

In 1865, The United States issued newspaper stamps that could be used to bulk mail newspapers and periodicals within the United States. This was discontinued in 1898. Here are six newspaper stamps that I picked up recently in New York City. While they may appear quite plain, what is hard to see here is that they are engraved with intricate and small details designed to prevent forgeries.

This is the first postage stamp Haiti issued. It was printed in 1881 and is imperforated. It featured the "liberty head" on the stamp, very much in the French style of the time. Haiti is a good country to collect because all their stamps are affordable and one could actually complete a full collection. Also, there are many forgeries, so it makes collecting genuine Haitian stamps challenging.

He was a second-class passenger heading for Milford, New Hampshire, after a visit to Italy, the country of his birth. He claims he was awakened by the force of the ship hitting the iceberg and initially thought the ship had docked in New York. He quickly realized something was wrong, put on a life vest, and went to the deck. He claims he slipped or tripped while trying to jump into a lifeboat and ...

March 22, 1849 - During the First Italian War of Independence, Austrian and Sardinian armies clashed at Bicocca, a borough of Novara. The Battle of Novara resulted in a devastating defeat, and eventually retreat, of the Piedmontese army the next day. To commemorate the battle, historic reenactments were organized.
