Bill Yopp-Narrative of a Slave-Georgia
Item #: NEW-0015971

Click image to enlarge
This is a small little soft bound booklet which tells the very interesting narrative of Bill Yopp, otherwise known as "10-Cent Bill".  It is a very scarce reprint of the original story that was published in 1920.  There is an Introduction by Charles W. Hampton. Nice condition.   It reprints the text of 1920 edition with a new intro. by Hampton, the "great-nephew of Captain Thomas Yopp, who was the master of Bill Yopp." 

Bill Yopp went with his "master" to fight in the Civil War and was enrolled 14th Georgia Regiment, Company H along Captain Yopp. He has a rich history.

http://blackconfederates.blogspot.com/2009/12/ten-cent-bill-black-confederate.html  Good short history of Yopp and I will include a copy of an artile written by Scott B Thompson, Sr.

Presentation Box-Embossed Confederate Note-Memminger
Item #: NEW-0015132

Click image to enlarge
Paypal will not be accepted on this item though payment plans can be arranged.

This item is believed to possibly be an item presented to the first Confederate Secretary of Treasury, Christopher Gustavus Memminger.  The box is small measuring five by 3 and a half inches, possibly made to fit a small New Testament bible.  It is too small to fit most of the Confederate notes, which one would assume might have be made for that purpose.   

The box is wrapped in light tan leather and is constructed of a light sturdy wood.  There is some staining as can be seen in the scan.  There is a separation at the fold but the cover is not loose.  The box bears the impression "Confederate States of America  Richmond  December 2nd 1862” and followed by the embossed signature of Christopher Memminger, Secretary of Treasury” which is a match for most of the Confederate Bank Notes. Across the bottom is the bible verse Hebrews 11.1 "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”  The inside of the box is lined with the kind of paper seen in early Civil War books. 

The box was originally acquired in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia from a noted antique dealer between Staunton & Harrisonburg, Virginia.  

Extensive research might reveal that this box was presented to Memminger thanking him for the time of his service in the Confederate White House at Richmond.  If it did not belong to him, it is hard to imagine what other purpose such a box might have been created.  At any rate, it is clearly a one of the kind Confederate item made during the Civil War.

South Carolina Civil War Button Hat Pin
Item #: NEW-0013053

Click image to enlarge
Evidently it was a custom when hat pins became popular in the 1880's for civil war buttons to be used in the construction of hat pins.  You can see a couple of letters in the back mark which was welded to the pin.  I was able to identify this as a Civil War button, probably a cuff button.  The pin is bent but the button itself is in good condition on the front. This would be a neat item for a woman who likes dressing in period clothes for enactment and other events.   Note Stolen at show

Item #: NEW-0011358

Click image to enlarge
I call this a mini poster but actually it was removed (not by me) from a very large book titled The Confederate Soldier in the Civil War.  Beautiful colors and framed it would make a nice display piece.  Someone has placed two strips of non-archival tape on the back, one is holding the separated tip to the poster.  I believe it can be removed .  There is edge wear including a small tear at the top but the eye is drawn to the beauty of the poster.  Measures 15 by 10 inches.

Loyal Union State Ticket-Reconstruction Era in Tennessee
Item #: NEW-009677

Click image to enlarge
The cheap paper used to produce this ballot as well as the title of the ballot leads me to believe that this was from Brownlow's first gubnatorial campaign which was of course after the ending of the War between the States. This information was taken from Wikepedia. William G Brownlow survived his opponents' attempts to rig the election for governor. The Confederacy had just surrendered, and much of the state had required Union military occupation. Certain ex-Confederate officers were barred from voting, and a strong showing came from the eastern part of the state, a center of Union loyalty where slavery had never been as much a part of the culture and economy, and secession was generally opposed. Tennessee was not officially readmitted to the union until July 2, 1866; even then it was the first ex-Confederate state to be officially readmitted. Brownlow was re-elected by a greatly expanded electorate (with the inclusion of freed slaves) in 1867; he resigned in February 1869 to accept election to the United States Senate by the state legislature, the method used prior to the ratification of the Seventeenth Amendment of the United States Constitution.

1866-Circulars-Political Reconstruction
Item #: NEW-004284

Click image to enlarge
Two circulars from the Office of Democratic State Central Committee in Frankfort Tennessee, which is in Morgan county, dated June 6, 1866 Can't read the signature of the individual who signed them. One circular is asking for the names of "gentlemen" in their county to be appointed an "Executive Commmitte for your county." "It is deemed important to organize the party thoroughly in every county... We prefer that they should be divided..between those who have always been Democrats, and those who were formely Whigs or Conservatives, but who are willing now to act with the Democracy." The second circular, in handwriting says that "the appointments for the Committee for your county is being sent and asking for additions or subtractions and trying to get out the vote for Judge Duvall." "In selecting candidates no discrimination should be made, for or against men, because of any part they may have taken in the late unfortunate civil war..."What we hope to accomplish is to take the administration of the affairs of the Government from the hands of the Radical destructionists, who now hold power, and place it again in the hands of the Democratic party-co-operating fully with that great party in the Northern and Western States. Thje conficlt will doubtless be a fierce one. ..more content. Glimpse into the political turmoil in the State duriing reconstruction.
