"The Confederate Note Memorial" Rare Chromolithograph

c. 1880s Post-Civil War Era, Chromolithograph Print, entitled: "The Confederate Note Memorial," no publisher name or date, Very Fine.

This original, extremely rare Chromolithograph Print headed "The Confederate Note Memorial," features four Confederate note reproductions shown in an array with various vignettes. There are added verses dedicated to the "Lost Cause" of the rebel states. For example, "But our boys thought little of price or pay - Or of bills that were over due - We knew if it bought our bread to day - 'Twas the best our poor country could do - Keep it, it tells all our history over...".

This large print measures 16" x 20" and is set within a beautiful frame, measuring to 18.5" x 22.5". The impressive imagery and content are typical of the "Lost Cause" memorabilia from the late 1880s. There is a slight waterstain at the top center edge of the print, but the rest of the print is nice, displaying sharp, colorful imagery and it has not examined out of its frame. Overall, this attractive Chromolithograph Print is quite historic and collectable having Confederate notes, interspersed with quotes about the now-worthless Confederate paper money. Wonderful Civil War Battle scenes display the heroic efforts of the soldiers in their noble "Lost Cause".
