Confederate States of America currency

csaA letter from the US Treasury Dept. to the Lawrence Public Library was wrapped around a pile of Confederate currency which was in an envelope in the vault of the Lawrence Public Library.

Samples of Confederate currency were dispersed to library and other institutions as historical relics, for exhibition purposes.  The bills were confiscated by the War Department at the end of the Civil War and then turned over to the US Treasury Department in 1867.
