From backside postcard:
Congaree National Park protects an ancient fores of champion-size trees, primeval floodplain landscapes, and an incredible diversity of plant and animal life. The park includes the largest remnant of old-growth floodplain forest in southeastern US and one of the tallest temperate deciduous forests in the world. It is also designated as an International Biosphere Reserve, Wilderness Area, National Natural Landmark and Globally important Bird Area.

Formerly known as Congaree Swamp National Monument, Congaree ( 27.000 acres) became a national park in 2003.
