VERY FINE. AN INCREDIBLE USAGE OF A CONFEDERATE WALLPAPER COVER BY A UNION SOLDIER DURING THE CLOSING DAYS OF THE CIVIL WAR.

The letter is datelined May 7, which is three days after the surrender by Gen. Taylor of Alabama and Mississippi Department at Citronelle Ala. The cover was mailed to Union Mills Pa., which became a center for Ku Klux Klan activity during the Reconstruction period. The addressee, William C. Jackson, was the postmaster around the time the "KKK", Skull & Crossbones cancel and other Klan-related cancels were created. The earliest newspaper in the town was the Union Mills Bulletin, started by William C. Jackson in 1865, and continued by him for one year, at which point it was sold and re-named Star (http://www.rootsweb.com/~paerie/bates/batesunion.htm)
