Description

On February 4, 1861, the Confederate States of America was formed, and almost immediately the first Confederate notes were printed - the famous "Montgomery" notes. These would be followed by many designs over the next four years. The seventy different designs or "type" notes are eagerly sought today by collectors, historians and family historians, and a collection of Confederate currency offers fascinating insights into the tumultuous Civil-War period. Pierre Fricke examines these series of Confederate notes, highlighting the history and circumstances in which they were created. This easy-to-read, fun and educational book offers an introduction to the often beautiful notes that financed the Confederacy.
