Subscibe to DEAL OF THE DAY

Forgotten History Video - April 6, 2018

Dear friends,

These day we text, message, and still use electronic mail (e-mail), getting information instantaneously. But imagine living in the new frontier of the Wild West and waiting weeks or months for any hand-written mail or messages of any kind. Patience is a virtue, most definitely.

Waiting on a stagecoach to bring you your letters, information, and packages seemed to be taking much too long for most. A sped-up delivery system was created to add horse-power to the postal service.

The Pony Express blazed the trail for connecting the people of the United States one letter, one gallop at a time. Learn about the story of this inventive service with today's video.

Thank you,
