Description
The Ministry of Communications has selected eight documentary paintings depicting some of the great victories our ancestors won, and decided to issue them as postage stamps, intending them to serve to make known throughout the world the wisdom with which our ancestors overcame our national difficulties ans also to help remind the people at home of the historical lessons to be learned from those national tragedies. The special six-color printing to be used for the stamps is the first attempt ever made to print stamps in Korea.

The following two stamps are the last of the series, the 4th Issue:
1. Genenral Kwon Yul's Great Victory at Haengju.
This picture, painted by Artist Oh Seung-woo of Chungang University, depicts the scene in which the Korean army under the command of General Kwon Yul is wiping out the attacking Japanese force at the Haengju Fort, where General Kwon Yul had concentrated his troops in preparation for the recovery of the lost capital. The Japanese suffered an irrepairable loss and was completely defeated in this historic battle.

2. Kim Chong-suh's Exploitation of Yukjin.
This picture, painted by Kim Tae, Professor of art at Seoul National University, depicts Kim Chong-suh's troops subdueing Yeojin tribes at the Duman River Vally. Yukjin refers to the six strategic points along the lower Duman River built up in 1434 against the invasion by Yeojin tribes. As a result of Kim Chong-suh's exploitation of Yukjin, the northern borderline of our country was fixed along the Duman River.
