Updated August 2nd 2022

I originally set this page up as Issued Place, which means the stamp or manuscript endorsement has the location where a 730 note was issued, reissued or paid out from.  However, many collect these notes with any type of endorsement or stamp.  Some of those are official receipts, or From, and Other post WAR endorsements such as UCV, UDC, court cases, advertising, &c.  Any 730 with location will be imaged on this page.  The images are listed in alphabetical order and PLACE constitutes one of several ways you can collect Trains & Hoers.  

All the images are from notes in TRAINMEN collections.  These images may be saved for your personal reference; but, they remain the property of TRAINMEN, Col Crutch Williams CSA TM01 and as of January 1st, 2019 Roger Adamek who now controls the CSA Trainmen website.  They may not be used for any other purpose without first requesting and being granted permission in writing.

The images have been saved in many sizes and are reduced on the page.  In many cases you can Double click an image to enlarge it.  Any image with an asteric (*) is a Black & White photo-copy.  Jackson Mississippi

BATTERY FUSILIER (Trans-Mississippi)
Battery Fusilier (Louisiana)

Battery Fusilier is believed to be a military position on the Louisiana side of the Mississippi River.  Dated Feb 27th 1863, this one is an Artilery branch Military Issue.  This image cannot be enlarged.

BEAUMONT TEXAS  (Trans-Mississippi)
Beaumont Texas 7Nov62 Brown
  Beaumont Texas, Nov 7th 1862.  While there is no rank indicated,
  this is a military issue since the initials AQM (Acting Quarter Master)
  follow Brown's name.

BONHAM TEXAS  (Trans-Mississippi)
Supply location in North Texas near Indian Territory (Oklahoma) border
Bohnam Tx 11Mar63 Civil    Bonham 18May63
              March 11, 1863    <<  Both endorsements are considered Agent >>    March 28, 1863
Bonham 22Feb63 Fraley ACS
  February 22, 1863 issued by Fraley.  This piece
  is probably military; but, could have been civil.
  He endorsed the note as Capt. & ACS which
  stands for Acting Commissary of Subsistance CSA.
  Commissary was a position and not all who held
  the position had military rank.  Those needed in the
  military were later redesignated Quarter Master or
  AQM and the others, with rank removed, simply
  became Agents of the Treasury Department.  A
  Commissary Agent acted in dual role for Military
  and Civil government well into 1863.

Bonham 28Feb63 Cabel AQM

  This is definately a military issue as Cabel has title
  Capt. & AQM CSA.  This image is B&W copy.



Military Issue:   May 21st 1863                            Destroyed Bridge at Bridgeport 1861
Issued by Samuel Prince, Captain & AQM
(No historical background available at this time)

Camp Bruin La 15Dec62   Military Issue:   12 December 1862   Image can't be enlarged.
Previous listing as Camp Brown was incorrect.  We weren't sure of the name until another clearer example showed up.  Camp Bruin was located across the Mississippi River and to the south of Vicksburg, Mississippi.  It is today identified as an oxbow lake called Lake Bruin which is found in Tensas Parrish, Louisiana.

    Military Issue:  9 December 1862
This is the second image of "Camp Bruin" which surfaced January 2015 that led us to change the designation from Camp Brown to Camp Bruin.  Clearly the i is doted here and if you look close in the first image there is an ink dot above the blue in the right hand corner.    

Camp Lilly Virginia 23Mar63   Military Issue:   23Mar63    Camp Lilly was a Texas "camp" probably between San Antonio and Houston or between Port Lavaca and   Houston.  Another note recently surfaced with the same IP stamps found on an AQM Houston issued note and with San Antonio notes from the same run.  For years it was thought that "Camp Lilly" was a location in Virginia but we now have the proof it was Texas.  Most likely this note was issued by Edwin Lilly who became AQM of 33rd Texas Cavalry that formed in Houston early April 1863.  The San Antonio notes were earlier, both Camp Lilly are March 23rd and a Issued Houston AQM is dated April 14th.  

IN CAMP  (Location Unknown)
   Most likely a Military Issue, but it could have been issued for civil purpose.
The actual place this note was issued is unknown.  I have seen others where it only says "In Camp" with a date.  We decided to image one for reference.



This is the only known example of manuscript Issued Charleston (South Carolina) known to the Trainmen.  It has set in a collection for over 15 years         where it was forgotten until the 2020 Covid-19 pandeminc came along.  It was rediscovered and brought into the light of day again.  Maybe someone
     will find another one one of these days; but, for now this piece is UNIQUE!    

Charleston Postal 5Sep62
       Charleston SC Postal 8Sep62
             September 5, 1862                         September 8, 1862

These are civil issues most likely by Depositary Agent using Postal Stamp for issue date.  There are other dates and more will be added as imaged.  The first has "Issued"  manuscript along with the stamp.  Many are found this way.  The second doesn't have the manuscript issued.  The first also has the issue date cancelled.  There are several possible reasons for this and difficult to say without seeing the whole note; but, I've seen examples that fit the following:  1)  The date stamp was applied and the note wasn't used on that day.  A new stamp with date was added later.  2)  The note was issued on this date, taken back in and reissued with another stamp and the first was cancelled out.  3)  When interest was paid 1 Jan 1863, the date was struck out to remind the agent this paticular note had been accounted. 

Another Charleston issued:  
B.C. Pressley, Assistant Treasurer - Charleston, S.C.

            Pressley Asst Trea Charleston S.C.  Pressley with manuscript date  
This first stamp only has the month and day and most seen are like this.  The year was of course 1862.  The second stamp has 1862 added manuscript.  Perhaps whoever was helping Pressley on this date decided he needed to add the year.  In any case it is an unusual combination.  Most stamps are blurred as this one is and hard to read.  The stamp at left is sharp and very easy to read and that is quite unusual for one of these issues.

ReIssued from Assistant Treasurer's Office, Charleston, S.C.

            This large Reissue stamp is very uncommon.  This stamp were likely made in Richmond and sent out to the Assistant Treasurers to help them with the reissuance of 730 notes.

Chattanooga Tenn No Date This is an interesting endorsement.  We believe it says From Chattanooga off for Office.  But it could just as easily be Tenn(essee) Chattanooga Off(ice).   We are trying to determine if the handwriting is that of JGM Ramsey or Jesse Thomas.  Both were Tennessee Treasury Agents.  However, this note, which is undated, was probably issued by Ramsay prior to October 1862.   I don't have the information handy as I create this page; but, Ramsey wrote to CG Memminger and said he was sorry that he missed one of the Treasury memos.  Memminger had sent a notice to all his Agents to place a date on the back of the notes they issued or paid out that would be used for interest calculations.  Ramsey issued out a number of notes before he read the memo.  I classify this note as a civil issue; but it could be quasi-military as Ramsay was in charge of local militia and Secret Agents (spies).

Chattanooga Tenn 15Oct62
We don't know who issued this note.  You can see that Tenn is very similar to From or Tenn on the above note.  Chattanooga is written similar as well.  This note is dated October 15, 1862 and is considered an Agent issue.

Chattanooga Tenn 1May63 Bryan QM

This is a Chattanooga Military issue dated May 1st, 1863
This note was issued by AM Bryan, Major & Quarter Master


This is an interesting piece.  It uses an abbreviation to indicate the place this note was "Received".  "Cola" has been the abbreviation for Columbia S.C. for many years.  It was apparently taken back in and then "Issued November 1862" (I can't make out the day) by T. Sanford Depositary who was at that time located in Montgomery Alabama.  It says "Recd Cola Oct 9th 1862" which would be Received Columbia SC.  It also has a neat notation of "Good Time".  Most likely this was a soldier's pay and he looking forward to spending this $100 in town and looking to have a "Good Time".  This note then made it's way back to Virginia where Interest was paid to 1st Jan 1863 at Richmond VA.  

Columbia Tenn 1May63 This is actually a ReIssued note.  The note was issued first at Jackson, Miss and then "issued" again (reissued) Columbia Te (Tennessee) May 1st, 1863.  Jackson was a central location where merchants came to be paid and where agents came to receive fund to be paid out in other far reaching locations.  There are two possible reasons for this double issued note.  1)  The agent dated for issue a great many notes upon his arrival and his clerks paid the notes out to various parties.  This  note went to an agent who eventually had the opportunity to issue it as payment for services or merchandise.  2)  The note actually issued out that day in Jackson and was taken in by an agent somewhere else and then reissued in Columbia Tenn.  I believe the first option occured as many I see taken back in actually state "ReIssued".  In any case, the note made it back to Jackson, or to where ever the Jackson Treasury Agent might have been for the 1864 Interest payment.

Corpus Christi Texas 27Apr63 LtBailey AAQM

This note was Issued at Corpus Christi Texas, April 27th 1863.  This note is a very interesting piece because a Lieutenant is the issuing officer.  Most military notes were issued by Captains or Majors.  Lieutenant Charles F. Bailey was Acting Assistant Quarter Master (AAQM) Confederate States(CS) Army.   This is a Train.

(There are Agent issues from Corpus Christi as well.  They're usually found on Hoers.)

This note was also issued at Corpus Christi, February 25, 1863.  This officer is H. A. Gilpin, Assit QM (AQM) Confederate States Provisional Army (CSPA)

*  If anyone has a Corpus Christi that isn't officer issued I would appreciate it if you would send me an image to use on this page.  CrutchTM01


Dallas Texas is a very scarce Issued Place location.  There are less than 10 known.  I've only seen one piece in person and iamges of two others prior to receiving this image early in Jan 2013.  This is different in that it is an Officer Issued.  It was prepared for an officer's signature and the actual day was also left blank.  Someone wrote in 3d for March 3rd, 1863 and Capt & AQM CSA but the officer didn't add his name.  The name wasn't required.  While it would have been nice to see a name it is still a Military Issue for Dallas Texas and the ONLY one of this type to be reported!  What a neat find!  (AS 2013)

Here is another Dallas, (Agent) Issued March 15th 1863. (AS 2013)

FORT ARBUCKLE - Indian Territory (Oklahoma)

 Fort Arbuckle CN  (Indian Territory ~ aka Oklahoma)
Fort Archer or UNK 27Mar63    Originally listed as Fort Archer in the
    Robert Ares collection.  We now know
    that this endorsement is Fort Arbuckle
    which was Chikasaw Nation (CN)

    Another more recent Fort Arbuckle.
    These endorsements are both found
    found on T41's.  Both notes were
    issued on March 27th, 1863.

                  Found on a T39
    For years we heard this location existed.  It
    finally surfaced in 2015.  Written in Red Ink
    this is an extremely RARE find.  Fort Brown
    was located at Brownsville Texas.  The date,
    difficult to make out, for sure is March 1863

Genada was a principal staging area for Confederate troops and major supply position as well.  While all of these were probably issued for a military reason, they are Agent or Civil issue because no rank or position is indicated.

                Agent:  December 12th 1862                                              Agent: February 9th 1863
Hempstead Tx Dec 8,1862 Hempstead was a very active location in Texas. It was a convergence point of Rail & Roads located just to the northwest of Houston that ran to every location in the state.  Besides being a major supply distribution point, it was also a location where Confederate troops were massed and trained before being shipped out.  Prisoners of War were also brought to Hempstead and held in a camp nearby.   The note at left, issued  December 8th 1862, has initials one Trainman says are AM&Bro.  If this is correct, it most likey was a merchant issue.  However, I think the last part might be QM.  If anyone has information on this piece, please let me know.  (Added 5 Oct 2011:  I now believe this initial endorsement to stand for:  A C & QM for Acting Commissary and Quartermaster.  CrutchTM01)

Houston was a very important location.  You find Agent and Military issues here.  Blue Ink is very uncommon!

How cool is this one?  This is a Red Ink "Issued Houston, Tex  Dec 22nd 1862" manuscript.  James Sorley, the depositary for Texas and Collector Galveston issued a lot of notes with red ink.  We don't know who this is, but Red Ink is quite scarce and this is currently the only known example.  RA Jan 2013

BOGUS   Postal Stamp
Houston Texas Bogus Post Mark Example of Houston Texas Postal Issue Hand Stamp.  This piece, illustrated at left, is a BOGUS COPY and is affectionately known as a Grover Special.  Grover Criswell is said to have made up this stamp for a collector who wanted one desparately.  It is the only Postal Stamp on 730 1862 Interest Hundred that is unknown in numismatic circles.  The 2nd Edition 1986 Dietz Confederate States Catalog and Handbook lists the eight (8) postmarks used on Southern currency on page 258.  Five examples known to have been used on these notes are pictured.  Those five are Charleston, S.C.; Houston, Tex:; Jackson, Miss; San Antonio, Tex; and, Shelbyville, Te.  The other three are Lenoir, N.C.; Richmond, Va; and, Savannah, Ga.  You will find images on this page of all the other postmarks except Richmond, Va.  It is generally believed that this stamp on the 1862 Interest $100 exists in philatellic circles as those collectors searched out Confederate Postal Stamped notes over 50 years ago.  If you have one, or know someone that owns one, please ask them to provide an image that I can display.  I also need an example of Richmond, Va. to add to this listing.

Long Swamp Florida Oct 1 1862     Long Swamp Florida was Commissary of Subsistance depot in Putnam County Florida.  It was probably located somewhere between San Mateo and Satsuma along the Old San Mateo Road.  "Long Swamp" today is a body of water in the Dunnís Creek Conservation Area.  
    This note was issued October 1st, 1862 by Capt Adam G. Summers, Capt & ACS, CSA.  His primary responsibility was herding cattle across the state as well as stock piling and keeping safe other sundry supplies.  His commanding officer in this area was Brig. General Joseph Finegan who is most noted for the Battle of Olustee in Baker County Florida, February 20, 1864.  Special Thanks to Lunelle Siegel, Augusta Jane Evans Wilson Chapter #2640 United Daughters of the Confederacy Temple Terrace, Florida for background information on Capt Summers and Long Swamp Florida.  Col Crutch Williams CSA & Life Member SCV  (new image AS 2013)

Monroe Louisiana was the Trans-Mississippi Depository for the Confederate Treasury Department.  Most people think Shreveport was; but, Shreveport was the military HQ.  This information can be found in the Confederate Treasury Correspondence.  The Depository was moved to Shreveport around the summer of 1863 and later to Marshall Texas.
