Description

    Confederate $100 Bill Inscribed With Post-Surrender Verse. "The Unrecorded" is the title of a grim 42-line poem by Colonel Henry Fanthorp that is penned on the back of a Confederate note and signed with an "HF" monogram dated May 1, 1865. The poem reads in very small part "...Like our dream of hope it passed / Keep it dear friend / 'Til time shall end / For their story will never be told / For a dreary pall / Like a blackened wall / Covers them now all silent and cold." The front of the bill carries a profile portrait of Lucy Pickens, a young woman universally considered the very embodiment of ideal Southern Womanhood. A poignant memento of the "Lost Cause" connected to an important figure in early Texas history. Aging, stains, a small area of marginal loss and one turned corner. Good condition.
