On November 15, 1975 Belgium issued this 5 franc Christmas stamp (Sc #950) showing an edited detail of the central panel of Rogier van der Weyden's (1399--1464) oil on oak panel Bladelin Altarpiece (ca. 1450).

The stamp depicts three angels which are shown in the upper left of the painting, above the nativity scene. The roofline has been removed on the stamp's image.

France,1966
This stamp (issued for the benefit of the Red Cross) depicts an ambulance woman,a wounded soldier and an officer at the battle of Solferino (1859)
From Wikipedia :
"The battle led the Swiss Jean-Henri Dunant to write his book, A Memory of Solferino. Although he did not witness the battle he toured the field following the battle and was greatly moved by what he saw. Horrified by the suffering of wounded soldiers left on the battlefield, Dunant set about a process that led to the Geneva Conventions and the establishment of the International Red Cross"

Original painting by Eugène-Louis Charpentier (1811-1890)

Thanks for showing the close-up image. The ways the engraver moved and changed the details on the soldier are interesting, I think.

This September 14, 1929 2c stamp (Sc #680) of the USA commemorates the 135th anniversary of the Battle of Fallen Timbers, Ohio. The American forces in this 1794 battle were led by Gen. "Mad" Anthony Wayne (1745-1796), who was a veteran of the American Revolutionary War. Stamp depicts the Battle of Fallen Timbers Monument, which was created by American sculptor Bruce Saville (1893-1938). The monument was dedicated in 1929 and is located 2 miles west of Maumee, Ohio.

From wikipedia, "The Battle of Fallen Timbers was the final battle of the Northwest Indian War, a struggle between Native American tribes affiliated with their British allies, against the nascent United States for control of the Northwest Territory. The battle took place amid trees toppled by a tornado near the Maumee River in northwestern Ohio at the site of the present-day city of Maumee, Ohio,"

4th centenary of the Edict of Nantes

From Wikipedia :
"The Edict of Nantes (French: édit de Nantes) was signed in April 1598 by King Henry IV and granted the Calvinist Protestants of France, also known as "Huguenots", substantial rights in the nation, which was in essence completely Catholic. In the edict, Henry aimed primarily to promote civil unity"

The stamp depicts King Henri IV (1553-1610) and two anonymous people shaking hands,most likely a Huguenot and a Catholic
