    Description

    Huntsville, AR- John Rogers $1 Nov. 1, 1862 Rothert UNL
    The town name on this piece appears to be Huntsville, although the ink has faded. The issuer, John Rogers, is unlisted in the Rothert Arkansas Obsolete Notes and Scrip reference. In 1870, the recorded population of Huntsville was only 224. During the Civil War, this Madison County locale saw quite a bit of guerilla activity as the sympathies in the area were divided and neither side was in control. Several battalions were mustered in Huntsville. Union General Francis J. Herron executed nine POWs in the town on January 10, 1863, an event known as the "Huntsville Massacre." This $1 note, payable in Confederate Notes when a sum of $10 or more was presented, is Fine with areas of staining observed and a portion missing at the upper left corner.
