    More Information:

    The Constitutional Convention of 1866 was conferred to bring the existing Constitution of 1861 (the Confederate Constitution) back in line with the Constitution and the laws of the United States after the end of the Civil War. Minimum requirements that would reestablish relations with the Union were to be satisfied by the delegates. These included the denial of the right of secession, the denial of debt incurred by the state during the war, the abolition of slavery, and the social and political status of freedmen was to be determined fairly.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
