What’s a Dollar Worth??? - 1
http://aspenhistory.org/jfshop.html “To convert 1860 prices to today's prices, multiply the 1860 price by $ 17.43 ”
• About $20 today, if one compares
purchasing power of similar commodities
– Based on General Store prices of Salt
Pork, Powder Shot, Coffee, Sugar, Tea,
peppermints, Tobacco, Raisins, Flour,
Spices, Beans, Potatoes, Prunes, Cheese,
Gloves, Hats, and Chaps
– Not fair comparison – Market is very different
What’s a Dollar Worth??? - 2
• Prices circa 1861
– $4 for a head of cattle
– 25¢ for a pig
– 75¢ for a pair of shoes
– $10 for a rifled gun
– 75¢ for a sword
– 50¢ for 18 plates
What’s a Dollar Worth??? - 3
• Daily salary was about $1 a day
$1 per day = approximately $300 per annum
This is about $60,000 per annum today
• $1 in 1861 can be regarded as the equivalent of
$200 today.
• Hence the $20 Confederate Note is worth the
equivalent of $4,000 in 1860 spending money
Confederate government enticed engravers to be
smuggled in from England for $20 in gold/week
~ $200,000 per year
The Business of Civil War: Military Mobilization and the State, 1861-1865
By Mark R. Wilson (written in 2005)
In the Beginning -1
• Provisional government of CSA formed at Montgomery,
Alabama on 8 February 1861
• Secretary of Treasurer was C. G. Memminger
• March 1861 authorized $2,000,000 in Treasury notes in
denominations not less than $50. Interest was at 3.65%
• Payable in 1 year - Not used as currency
• Authorized borrowing $15,000,000 in gold @ 8%
• Monies used for arms, ammunition, and supplies.
• Tried tax of ½ cent per pound of cotton but did not yield
sufficient revenue due to blockade.
Resulting in First Issue
In the Beginning -2
• 9 March 1861 Notes issued in denominations of
$50, $100, $500, and $1,000.
• These were worth approximately $10,000,
$20,000, $100,000, and $200,000 in today’s $.
• Goal was to raise money
• Primarily purchased by large banks & big planters
• Notes were NOT intended for use as currency
• Three Sources of money (1861-1865):
– Taxation (~ 8%), Borrowing (32%), Printing (60%)
Financial Acts of the CSA
Government => Issues
1st Issue – 9 March1861 $2,000,000
Montgomery Issue – National Bank Note Company, New York
(South had no engravers; NBNC viewed this as a business)
Printed in New York and smuggled South
Reused existing vignettes, used in the South & the North
Plates seized by Federal Government, so South went elsewhere
Richmond Issue – Southern Bank Note Company
Ft. Sumter – 12 April 1861
Had to import needed supplies from Europe
Had to Hire European Engravers @ $20 in gold/week
2nd Issue - 25 July (16 May) 1861 $20,000,000
3rd Issue - 2 September 1861 $150,000,000

5th Issue - 2 December 1862 $500,000,000
6th Issue - 6 April 1863
Yes, we had Pelots
7th Issue - 17 February 1864 – Operations moved to Columbia, SC in South Carolina

Written Denomination
• Virginia – $1, $5, $10, $20, $50, $100, $500
1864
• 17 February 1864 bill passed:
– Notes smaller than $5.00 convertible into bonds and receivable at par until 1
July 1864, then taxed out of existence
– Issue of New Notes – old notes less than $100 could be exchanged for new
notes at the rate of $3.00 old for $2.00 new
• Impact:
–
–
–
–
–
$426,000,000 were so exchanged at $3.00 old for $2.00 new
Currency was unmanageable
Even the $100 notes continued to circulate after they were outlawed
Gold started at $17 to $23 for $1 declined to $40 for $1
Old notes and new notes continued to circulate side by side, were equally
discredited, and continued to depreciate together
– Credit of the Confederate government was shattered
– Mr. Memminger resigned his office in midsummer 1864 – He was succeeded
by George A. Trenholm of Charleston
1865
• January 1865:
– Gold now $53 for $1
– Trenholm said: “Apprehension of ultimate repudiation crept like an
all-pervading poison into the minds of the people and greatly
circumscribed and diminished the purchasing power of the notes”
– Proposed to reverse the policy of repudiation – Bill passed by house,
but failed in the Senate
– Nothing to do but make fresh issues of the notes - $80,000,000
authorized in March 1865 – passed over the President’s veto
– Schemes to raise taxes never materialized
– Financially the Confederacy had collapsed
If military events had not brought the Confederacy to an end in April 1865,
It would have collapsed about that time anyway. It would have been
Impossible to supply the Army in the field with food, clothing, and arms.
Confederate Money Prices in Richmond
1861 .95 cents on dollar in gold

9 April 1865 1.6 cents on dollar

Epilog
•
•
•
•
Mrs. S L Pelot signed for a total of $514,020 of the known Confederate
Notes, representing ~ .1 % of all the money raised by the 17 February 1864
Act and .033 % of the total money raised by the Confederacy to fund the
Confederate government and wage the Civil War.
The exact identify of the signer was a mystery for a long time. The signer is
identified as a Mrs. S. L. Pelot in the Register of the Confederate Debt.
Every note she had signed had her signature appearing as “L Pelot.” There
were no known Pelots during the time frame of the Civil War having these
initials.
Approximately one year after the mystery was posted to the web, a Mr.
Michael McNeil contacted me identifying his great-great-great grandmother
as the signer of the Confederate Notes. He has accumulated a collection of
notes with representatives from most series to study the signature.
Apparently Sarah Pelot signed the notes with an “L” as she went by her
middle name of “Liz” for Elizabeth. He noted that Sarah never crossed the
trailing “T” in “Pelot”. Apparently this was a common custom and his
grandmother, Flora Nelle Pelot, adopted the practice as well. After the Civil
War, Sarah Elizabeth Pelot left South Carolina for Kentucky and taught
penmanship in the 1870s to support herself
During her brief stint as a signer in 1864, she signed over 30,400 known
notes
