Documenting the American South Logo

North Carolina State Issue, 1862
NC Ten-Dollar Note
Written date "Feb. 15th, 1862."
Trains were also popular images on currency, symbolizing progress and projecting the promise of greater prosperity. Central vignettes very similar to this one can be found on variety of other southern notes, including two-dollar notes issued by Florida in 1863 and on one-dollar notes issued by Georgia that same year. Even though different printers produced these other notes, a comparison of their vignettes reveals how the designs of one money-maker influenced those of another.
