3 Mystery of Confederate Currency Who is the Pelot who signed for the Registrar????

4 Actually a Number of Questions 1.Who is Pelot – Related to me? 2.What is the Initial? – L.?, S.?, other? 3.Why signing for the Registrar? 4.Was my Pelot living in Richmond? 5.How much signed? What’s a Dollar Worth?

5 First, Look and feel of a Confederate Bill 1861 - Will pay $100 to Bearer at interest of 2 cents per day Six months after Ratification of a Treaty of Peace between the Confederate States and the United States 1864 – Two Years after the Ratification of a Treaty of Peace between the Confederate States and the United States Hand numbered Serial Number Hand signed for Treasurer (acknowledged money for Treasury Hand signed for Registrar (acknowledged the debt) Hand dated 8 th May 1862 Vignette Series

6 Who Was ?. Pelot? First Looked at Possible Men Jonas (immigrated to South Carolina in 1734) ~1687-1754 John Francis ~1720-1774 John ~1742-1776 James (Land Grant Florida 1793) ~1744-1824 Charles ~1763-1809 Richard ~1775-1840 James ~1782-1823 SamuelJoseph ~1782-1830~1790-1833 CharlesJohn ~1791-1863 ~1797 -1841 Joseph ~1809 -1881 +3 Richard William ~1811 -1864 +5 (1) ~1813 -1876 John Cooper ~1809 -1879 +3, one of which was Dr. John Crews Pelot James Charles ~1812 -1841 ~1819 -1873 Francis ~1828 -1905 Joseph ~1824 -1876 JamesThomas Postell ~1833 -1888 ~1835 -1864 ~1814 -1900 +1 StephenWilliam ~1823 -1883? ~1813 -1875 +1 EugeneJoseph ~1818 -1870 +3 Benjamin ~1833 -1907 Blue are Possible Men as are sons Red are Dead Black shows descent lines Still no help??? Besides, none of these were in Richmond?

7 What’s a Dollar Worth??? - 1 About $20 today, if one compares purchasing power of similar commodities –Based on General Store prices of Salt Pork, Powder Shot, Coffee, Sugar, Tea, peppermints, Tobacco, Raisins, Flour, Spices, Beans, Potatoes, Prunes, Cheese, Gloves, Hats, and Chaps –Not fair comparison – Market is very different - “To convert 1860 prices to today's prices, multiply the 1860 price by $ 17.43 ”

8 What’s a Dollar Worth??? - 2 Prices circa 1861 –$4 for a head of cattle –25¢ for a pig –75¢ for a pair of shoes –$10 for a rifled gun –75¢ for a sword –50¢ for 18 plates

9 What’s a Dollar Worth??? - 3 Daily salary was about $1 a day $1 per day = approximately $300 per annum This is about $60,000 per annum today $1 in 1861 can be regarded as the equivalent of $200 today. Hence the $20 Confederate Note is worth the equivalent of $4,000 in 1860 spending money Confederate government enticed engravers to be smuggled in from England for $20 in gold/week The Business of Civil War: Military Mobilization and the State, 1861-1865 By Mark R. Wilson (written in 2005) ~ $200,000 per year

10 In the Beginning -1 Provisional government of CSA formed at Montgomery, Alabama on 8 February 1861 Secretary of Treasurer was C. G. Memminger March 1861 authorized $2,000,000 in Treasury notes in denominations not less than $50. Interest was at 3.65% Payable in 1 year - Not used as currency Authorized borrowing $15,000,000 in gold @ 8% Monies used for arms, ammunition, and supplies. Tried tax of ½ cent per pound of cotton but did not yield sufficient revenue due to blockade. Resulting in First Issue

11 In the Beginning -2 9 March 1861 Notes issued in denominations of $50, $100, $500, and $1,000. These were worth approximately $10,000, $20,000, $100,000, and $200,000 in today’s $. Goal was to raise money Primarily purchased by large banks & big planters Notes were NOT intended for use as currency Three Sources of money (1861-1865): –Taxation (~ 8%), Borrowing (32%), Printing (60%)

12 Financial Acts of the CSA Government => Issues 1 st Issue – 9 March1861 $2,000,000 Montgomery Issue – National Bank Note Company, New York (South had no engravers; NBNC viewed this as a business) Printed in New York and smuggled South Reused existing vignettes, used in the South & the North Plates seized by Federal Government, so South went elsewhere Richmond Issue – Southern Bank Note Company Had to import needed supplies from Europe Had to Hire European Engravers @ $20 in gold/week 2 nd Issue - 25 July (16 May) 1861 $20,000,000 3 rd Issue - 2 September 1861 $150,000,000 4 th Issue - 17 April 1862 $215,000,000 5 th Issue - 2 December 1862 $500,000,000 6 th Issue - 6 April 1863 7 th Issue - 17 February 1864 – Operations moved to Columbia, SC * Capital moved from Montgomery to Richmond on 24 May 1861, after Virginia succeeded from the Union.

18 1864 17 February 1864 bill passed: –Notes smaller than $5.00 convertible into bonds and receivable at par until 1 July 1864, then taxed out of existence –Issue of New Notes – old notes less than $100 could be exchanged for new notes at the rate of $3.00 old for $2.00 new Impact: –$426,000,000 were so exchanged at $3.00 old for $2.00 new –Currency was unmanageable –Even the $100 notes continued to circulate after they were outlawed –Gold started at $17 to $23 for $1 declined to $40 for $1 –Old notes and new notes continued to circulate side by side, were equally discredited, and continued to depreciate together –Credit of the Confederate government was shattered –Mr. Memminger resigned his office in midsummer 1864 – He was succeeded by George A. Trenholm of Charleston

19 1865 January 1865: –Gold now $53 for $1 –Trenholm said: “Apprehension of ultimate repudiation crept like an all-pervading poison into the minds of the people and greatly circumscribed and diminished the purchasing power of the notes” –Proposed to reverse the policy of repudiation – Bill passed by house, but failed in the Senate –Nothing to do but make fresh issues of the notes - $80,000,000 authorized in March 1865 – passed over the President’s veto –Schemes to raise taxes never materialized –Financially the Confederacy had collapsed If military events had not brought the Confederacy to an end in April 1865, It would have collapsed about that time anyway. It would have been Impossible to supply the Army in the field with food, clothing, and arms.

30 Epilog Mrs. S L Pelot signed for a total of $514,020 of the known Confederate Notes, representing ~.1 % of all the money raised by the 17 February 1864 Act and.033 % of the total money raised by the Confederacy to fund the Confederate government and wage the Civil War. The exact identify of the signer was a mystery for a long time. The signer is identified as a Mrs. S. L. Pelot in the Register of the Confederate Debt. Every note she had signed had her signature appearing as “L Pelot.” There were no known Pelots during the time frame of the Civil War having these initials. Approximately one year after the mystery was posted to the web, a Mr. Michael McNeil contacted me identifying his great-great-great grandmother as the signer of the Confederate Notes. He has accumulated a collection of notes with representatives from most series to study the signature. Apparently Sarah Pelot signed the notes with an “L” as she went by her middle name of “Liz” for Elizabeth. He noted that Sarah never crossed the trailing “T” in “Pelot”. Apparently this was a common custom and his grandmother, Flora Nelle Pelot, adopted the practice as well. After the Civil War, Sarah Elizabeth Pelot left South Carolina for Kentucky and taught penmanship in the 1870s to support herself During her brief stint as a signer in 1864, she signed over 30,400 known notes
