An extremely rare and valuable 1863 compensatory receipt from the Confederate government to a South Carolina slave owner.

 

This receipt was for the sale of a slave named Caesar who was sold by his plantation owner Edgar N. Plowden of Columbia, South Carolina, into the Confederate Army for the price of $2000 to be used in the Confederate military. The CSA needed soldiers and began ‘renting’ slaves from plantation owners for their role in the U.S. Civil War. Plowden was a notable Confederate soldier as well, playing an important role in Potter’s Raid.

 

It should be noted that while this receipt is unique in all respects, similar pieces of Americana have been sold at auction for several thousands of dollars+. An impressive and matchless item.
