How Ben Franklin Established the US Post Office

During the War of Independence, when there was no internet or phone to provide instant communication over long distances, the connective tissue that held American colonies together was mail carried by riders on the rough roads between cities. and villages. Ensuring mail was delivered as quickly and securely as possible was essential to the survival of the colonies. That is why three months after the battles of Lexington and Concord, the Continental Congress turned to Benjamin Franklin to establish a national postal service as the premier of the Post Office.
