Confederate Money

During the American Civil War, the 11 southern states that made up the Confederate States of America needed a monetary system of its own, which gave birth to Confederate Currency. These notes were issued in 4 Series (1861, 1862, 1863, & 1864) with numerous varieties in each series. After the defeat of the South in the Civil War, CSA’s became worthless as a form of US Currency.
