Southern Postmasters Rallied
In the Midst of Chaos

As the Civil War loomed, the federal government ended postal service to Southern states in June 1861.  While the new Confederate government struggled to provide basic services, Southern postmasters acted quickly and issued provisional adhesive stamps, valid only within the cities of their jurisdiction.

Postmaster John Riddell of New Orleans engraved his own stamp design on wood from which stereotypes were made – allowing mail in the bustling port city to continue. 

Own a unique piece of Civil War history – order your scarce Confederate Postmaster’s Provisional stamp right away.
