 Our presentation "Confederates" by Harry T. was very interesting. Harry first his interest

 from an old building near lake "Louisvillia". The building had walls papered in confederate

 bills.  In 1861 The Confederate States of America was formed.  (President Jefferson Davis)

 The Confederacy came up with 72 different notes for currency of which about half were

 counterfeited. Samuel Upton was responsible for about 2/3's of all counterfeits and today

 some (most) are worth more than the original government notes. Grover Criswell is the undisputed

 expert on Confederate Currency. His books are world renown. Harry has many of his early works.

 Albert Pick is another expert who formed the "Standard Catalog of World Paper Money" which    

 is the standard reference work for all banknote collectors. Thanks Harry !!!
