1775: Happy birthday to the US Post Office

We say happy birthday to the US Post Office.    It was created on this day in 1775 when the Congress establishesd it and named Benjamin Franklin the first Postmaster General.

Wonder what it cost to post a letter in 1775?

The Post Office changed the country in many ways, from commerce to personal correspondence to the distribution of political ideas.

Say hello to your postman today!
