1863 Confederate States of America Loan of $1,000 at 6%


Loan authorized by Act of Congress C.S.A. of March 25, 1863

To help raise money, the Confederate States of America issued bonds. Early in the Civil War, these bonds seemed a worthwhile, even patriotic, investment to the Southerners who bought them. The war was going well for the Confederacy and the bonds promised a tidy profit in interest. At war’s end, Southerners were left holding now worthless Confederate bonds.  Credit: From the Collections of The Henry Ford.
