Florida’s Everglades National Park
Everglades National Park spans the southern tip of the Florida peninsula and most of Florida Bay. It is the only subtropical wilderness preserve in the United States. Often called the River of Grass, the landscape of the park is unique in America. It consists of a patchwork of open saw-grass marshes, tangled mangrove forests, and jungle-like tropical hardwoods. No part of the park’s 1.5 million acres (2,188 square miles) is more than eight feet above sea level. Most of the land is either fresh-water or brackish-water wetlands, or submerged beneath the waters of Florida Bay.
 
The park is home to many species of wildlife, including many endangered, rare, and exotic species. Visitors to the area are thrilled to see great egrets, white ibis, and the “kings of the everglades” – alligators. Most tourists choose to visit the Everglades National Park in the winter, when temperatures and insect populations are lowest.

  • 1847 5¢ Benjamin Franklin, red-brown, thin bluish wove paper, imperforate U.S. #1 - First U.S. Postage Stamp

    On July 1, 1847, the first US postage stamps went on sale.  The 5¢ issue of 1847 (US #1) features a portrait of Benjamin Franklin, the man responsible for organizing America's postal service back in the 1700s.  Postal clerks used scissors to cut the stamps from sheets, as perforations weren't in use yet.  Today, US #1 is a valued piece of American postal history and a lucky find in any condition.
