1861 civil war confederate dollar


Recommended Posts


Reminds me of an old Dennis the Menace TV episode where he found a Confederate bill and tried to buy something with it. The shopkeeper turned him down, but then Mr. Wilson revealed that it was worth a lot more and bought it from Dennis. The shopkeeper was all, "But they lost!"

Just now, Californication said:

Blasphemy. Paying for confederate dollars with Northern dollars. Confederates are rolling in their graves.

At this point, I think the smart ones are humble enough to understand and appreciate that their loss is why everyone in the country isn't speaking German right now.

If you haven't read it this is an interesting alternate Civil War trilogy - the point of divergence is when one of the Laird rams is tranferred to the CSA and when this is happening a Union warship comes on the scene and engages the Laird ram - a British warship shows up and assumes that the Laird ram is still a British ship which is being attacked.  Game on!


(The trilogy is actually named Brittanias Fist Trilogy.)
