One Stamp Two Countries
The map of China, with an image of the sun and dates of the conflict. On the left Abraham Lincoln with the Gettysburg Address quote, "Of the people, by the people, for the people". On the right is Sun Yat-Sen, founder of modern China with underneath, (depending on which explanation you read) is either a repeat in Chinese of "Of the people" or his three principles doctrine. That is Nationalism, Democracy and People's Livelihood. Not too different from the Lincoln's ideals of nationalism, equal rights and democracy. Both men were born poor, revolutionaries and died before their time.
