Stamptuary Hall: Nathanael Greene


Nathanael Greene appears on a stamp with George Washington; both are also honored in the National Statuary Hall collection. Greene’s statue is one of Rhode Island’s contributions and can be found in the Crypt. Fun fact: the Crypt is so called because Congress intended to bury Washington there, but Washington is actually buried at Mount Vernon per his family’s wishes. No one is actually buried in the Crypt.

About Laura

Paralegal with Master of Arts in Teaching in Museum Education, frequent museum visitor, based in Washington, DC. I care about what museums can do, both in terms of public offerings and internal practices, to make the world a better place. I blog about museum education ("informed"), the social work of museums ("humane"), and visitor experience ("citizenry").
