Greg Harlin's

Greg Harlin's

Exploding cannon fire lit the sky and reflected off the water as rain poured down on American soldiers struggling to defend Fort McHenry against a British attack. It was September 1814, and after the Battle of Baltimore, Francis Scott Key penned the work that became our national anthem, "The Star-Spangled Banner." The goal of Annapolis-based artist Greg Harlin has been bringing that scene to life — on a postage stamp. And now the U.S. Postal Service is unveiling Harlin's creation: the War of 1812: Fort McHenry Forever stamp.

Harlin, who describes himself as a history buff, said he was thrilled, and a little nervous, when asked to design the stamp. Harlin's no stranger to big projects. A native of Washington, D.C., he earned a degree in graphic design from the University of Georgia in 1980 before settling in Annapolis, where he has worked on projects for National Geographic, the Smithsonian Institution and the National Park Service.

Yvette Singh, a spokeswoman for the postal service, said Harlin was chosen to design this stamp because of his "outstanding work on historical subjects and for his extensive research in creating his subjects." The process of designing the War of 1812 stamp started with research, Harlin said. He assembled a small library of books on the topic and did his best to understand what happened at Fort McHenry during the battle. "In doing all the research, I realized how many people have devoted so much of their life to studying and understanding this particular moment in our history," Harlin said. "So one of the things I really focused on was being historically accurate in my art."  The project took about nine months.

The War of 1812: Fort McHenry Forever stamp is the fourth in the U.S. Postal Service's War of 1812 series.
