Biographical/Historical Note

During the Civil War, coupons were a common way to encourage trade in the Confederacy's flagging economy. They could be used at various locations and stores, and would be worth a stated amount of money if a certain amount were spent, much like modern-day coupons promising a certain amount back when the customer spends a set amount at a store.
