Though small in geogrpahical size and with a fairly small population, Rhode Island showed what it is made of when it became the first state to declare independence from Great Britain on May 4th 1776, two months to the date before the English packed up and left the shores of the New World.
The English left behind the setup of their mail industry which allowed The United States Postal Service to grow and flourish into what we have today. The use of prepaid stamps lingers on from the old English ways.
The USPS has evolved drasticly over the centuries until becoming today the largest mail service in the world. Use the maps above to find the closest USPS outlet and take advantage of the wonderful mail system that we have today.
