Civil War Photo Friday: An 1864 Silver Dollar
When I was writing my Civil War novel A Fine Likeness, I had a scene where the protagonist pulls a silver dollar out of his pocket. Then, being the stickler for accuracy that I am when it comes to historical novels, I wondered if silver dollars actually existed in 1864.
It turns out they did, and they were beauties!
