About Confederate Stamp

The southern states of the United States officially voted to secede from the Union in December 1860. One by one, southern states broke away and joined the Confederate States of America. The C.S.A. was officially born on February 4th, 1861. That said, the United States Postal Service still officially handled all C.S.A. mail until June 1st, 1861.At first, the C.S.A. postal system was pure bedlam. Confederate postal officials were ordered to accept cash for payments, and letters were stamped with a simple ''PAID.'' The high rates for Confederate Post reflected the desperation of the government at the time. For delivery of a half-ounce letter less than 500 miles away, the C.S.A. postal service charged five cents, which was a lot in those times. On October 16, 1861, the C.S.A. got its postal system together and began issuing stamps. Given the vitriolic hatred the C.S.A. held for the United States of America at the time, it is rather surprising that the post office adopted U.S. icons for its stamps. The C.S.A. post produced a 10-cent Thomas Jefferson stamp, a two-cent Andrew Jackson stamp, and a 20-cent George Washington stamp.Of course, the C.S.A. also created stamps honoring figures of the southern revolution. Jefferson Davis, president of the Confederate States of America, was depicted in a famous five-cent green stamp. John C. Calhoun, a renegade South Carolinian, was also featured prominently. With the help of London affiliates and a printing company by the name of Archer and Daly, the C.S.A. postal service managed to do a yeoman's job of organization given the circumstances.
