United States


In 1924 the Post Office Department issued a series of postage stamps, designed by Claire Aubrey Houston, to commemorate the three hundredth anniversary of the settling of Huguenots and Walloons in New Netherlands, now the State of New York, in 1624. Huguenots were French Protestants inspired by the writings of John Calvin (1509-1564) that were severely persecuted in their home country for their religious beliefs. The Walloons were Dutch Protestants who suffered similar oppression. Both of these groups spread to the New World where they were accepted and allowed to worship freely.
