Own a Scarce Confederate Postmasters’ Provisional
A Direct Link to the Civil War
As the Civil War loomed, the federal government ended postal service to the South. While the new Confederate government struggled to provide basic services, local postmasters issued provisional stamps for use in their cities. These provisional stamps were generally in use between June 1, 1861 when the use of United States Stamps stopped in the Confederacy, and October 16, 1861, when the first Confederate government stamps were issued.
