Beyond Face Value: Depictions of Slavery in Confederate Currency

Hosted by the United States Civil War Center at Louisiana State University, this new exhibit explores "the relationship between art and politics in the Civil War era" with over 100 digital images of Confederate notes. The images, browseable by state or activity (field scenes, individuals with cotton, sugar plantations, etc.), are accompanied by an overview of the Civil War and brief essays on the Antebellum economy and paper money in the mid-nineteenth century. A bibliography and collection of related links are also provided.
