The United States Postal Service honored Revolutionary War hero, Peter Francisco, with a stamp depicting the hulking man with a British thousand-pound cannon slung over his shoulder. Francisco was wounded six times during the war. So great was his prowess, that General Washington ordered a five-foot broadsword fashioned for him. Francisco wielded it in many battles including the battle of Guilford Court House, where he killed eleven British soldiers.
