    "Sending a Letter: A History of the U.S. Post Office Before the Civil War" presented by Tom Kelleher of Sturbridge Village, 7pm. In the early 19th century, America was far from either the largest or richest country in the world, but its postal service was already by far the biggest on the planet. This examination of the early American mail system, its significance and how it worked, includes a concrete look at how a letter went from sender to addressee in the early 1800s, and how the Post office grew and changed as it shaped America.
