When Lee invaded PA, it's no coincidence that his line of march was directly toward the state capitol at Harrisburg. One of the campaign objectives was to raid the state treasury of its gold.

So basically the only real advantage in funding was the free labor to produce/move that cotton yak!

I have a bond issued by the CSA in 1863 for $500.00. Coupons are attached in the amount of $20.00. The coupons can be cashed every six months beginning in 1865. We have the bond framed and it is about an 11/14.


This is not a picture of my bond, but I found this online.

Worthless war bonds. Were really banking on Europe helping. Never happen.

Just seems like the South did not get enough of a beatdown either. With all the segregation stuff still going on almost 100 years later.

And now the talk of secession and all...lulz

The war had nothing to do with segregation. Just as many yankees didn't want to intermingle with negros as did southerners.

So, people who talk secession deserve a beatdown?

Ok to put that down as one of your hallmarks of a free and enlightened society?

re: How did the Confederacy fund its war effort?


One of the early tidbits of the South succeeding was that Lincoln was not even on the ballot on the states that did ultimately secede and there was quite an uproar that the South had no power if the president could get elected without one single vote from the South.

The reason secession is being brought up again is that the country is so divided many feel that the red states should rule themselves and blue states themselves. It's more of a we live this way and y'all live that way so we will just go our separate ways. Kind of seems more democratic as opposed to forcing others to subscribe to your opposing theory.
