        Confederate $50 Note, Second Authorization, 1861 | A State Divided

        In 1861, the Confederacy began to print its own money. Images of slaves, riverboats, plantations, and even Greek gods appeared on the bills. Counterfeiting—printing fake money—was a big problem in the South. As the war went on, the money lost its value.

        This resource is part of the A State Divided: Exploring the Civil War Through Images collection.
