The Confederate States of America issued banknotes and coins through no fewer than 10 separate banks and private companies. Confederate States dollars were not backed by hard assets and the financial power behind the notes was often put forward by an individual person or bank. After the war, when the Union refused to honor Confederate dollars and debts, Confederate banknotes were rendered useless and countless individuals and banks were ruined.
