A Guide to Civil War Materials
in the Rare Book, Manuscript, and Special Collections Library
Strategies for finding materials related to Confederate and Southern States Currency:
Two in-house finding aids help identify the library’s holdings. They are titled “Currency Collection Guide to Contents” and the “Raphael Prosper Thian Collection, Confederate States of America Treasury Department Notes and Bonds.”
On-line there is a finding aid to the currency collection titled “Currency: The Duke University Currency Collection, 1746-1982” which closely resembles the in-house guide “Currency Collection Guide to Contents.” The on-line finding aid may be found at the following address - http://scriptorium.lib.duke.edu/dynaweb/findaids/currency
In the Duke University Libraries on-line catalog, one may search under the author Raphael Thian to find published works about Confederate currency as well as a subject search using the heading “Money—Confederate States of America” to find works about Confederate currency.
