CONFEDERATE  PAPER WORKS ON LINE 

   NBS Board member Larry Mitchell reports: "The following 
   scarce works on the paper money of the Confederacy 
   recently were digitized as part of the University of North 
   Carolina (Chapel Hill) project, "Documenting the American 
   South": 

   "Cato" on Constitutional "Money" and Legal Tender. 
   In Twelve Numbers from the Charleston Mercury" 
   (1862): 

      http://metalab.unc.edu/docsouth/witherst/witherst.html 

   "Facts and Suggestions Relative to Finance & Currency 
   Addressed to the President of the Confederate States" 
   (1864): 

      http://metalab.unc.edu/docsouth/greend/green.html 

   "Remarks on the Manufacture of Bank Notes, and Other 
   Promises to Pay.  Addressed to the Bankers of the 
   Southern Confederacy" (1864): 

      http://metalab.unc.edu/docsouth/banknote/banknote.html 

   "[Open Letter to the Banks Concerning the Act of 
   Congress to Reduce the Currency]" (1864): 

      http://metalab.unc.edu/docsouth/treasury/treasury.html 

   Quoting from "Remarks", p5:  "It was in the midst of our grand 
   struggle for independence that Franklin found time, from his 
   lightning-catching, mail-carrying, diplomatizing and printing, to 
   engrave, en amateur, a set, or several sets, of plates for the 
   Continental money;  and his work, much of which is still in 
   existence, shows nothing more than the coarse, ill-drawn 
   practice of the time, easily and frequently counterfeited, 
   lessening in such proportion the value of what was legally 
   issued."
