The History Of Postage Stamps In Iowa:
The State of Iowa sided with the Union during the American Civil War and though there was only one major battle or confrontation on the borders of Iowa soil, many of the men in Iowa fought valiantly to defeat the breakaway states of the Americas.
When the war broke out after the Southern states rebelled, one thing that they had in their possession was United States of America postage stamps to the value of about 200,000 Dollars. This was a problem that the Union could not let go unchecked so they immediately canceled and revoked all postage stamps and printed replacements with different images. This meant that the Confederates could not make use of the postage stamps for espionage activities that could have taken place right under the noses of the Union Army.
This was the first and last time that such a thing happened in the United States and with all America now one entity and the United States Postal Service or USPS, the sole authority responsible for all mail, the stability and advances in technology have allowed the postal service to be streamlined to such an extent that there are 617,254 men and women on active service ensuring that every United States citizen receives mail addressed to his name.
To achieve this level of service to the nation the USPS has improved further and brought in new resellers who can also provide postage services to people in more remote locations.
