Comments

In 1861, under President Jefferson Davis, the southern United States formed the Confederate States of America, which fought against the northern states. The Confederate States issued their own paper money, which has a special feature. Single editions show the wife of the governor of South Carolina, Lucy Petway Holcombe Pickens. Lucy Pickens was known as the "Queen of the Confederacy" and played an important role in southern society. Not only was she shown as the only woman on Southern banknotes, but a legion was named after her.
