Summary

The United States Postal Service has a long history that is closely related to and follows the settlement, exploration, and expansion of the U.S. as a whole. From the colonial penny posts to the system's complete reorganization in 1971 and the technological advancements of today that make the moving of mail more and more efficient, the history of the USPS is explored, including some colorful and little-known anecdotes. Also included is information about the processing of mail and the people who work within the postal system. Stamps and letters are special topics, and the book also has tips for letter writing and directions for correctly addressing an envelope.
