Confederate Money

 c. 1860s

These particular bills, currently kept in storage, were issued by the Confederate States in 1862 and 1864. We have an example of the 50 cent, 2 dollar, 5 dollar, 10 dollar, 20 dollar, and 50 dollar notes. Secretary Seward’s sons, Augustus and Will Jr, were both Union soldiers who could have acquired this money during the war.
