Financing the Civil War: Small Change-Big Debt
The Wayne County Historical Society, in celebration of the anniversary of the American Civil War, is bringing together, for the first time, collections of financial papers and currency from collectors throughout the Midwest. This exhibit will illustrate how governments from both sides of the war dealt with the issues of supporting a major war, paying troupes and buying supplies. Also included in this exhibit will be materials illustrating how local citizens coped with the lack of small change, an issue that plagued both the north and south throughout the conflict. The most complete collection of Wayne County merchant tokens ever assembled will be on display, as well as the first "green back" note and Confederate bonds. Even counterfeit notes will be on display.
Hours: Friday & Saturday 1:30-4 pm
Groups arranged by appointment at other times.
