    (Opelousas, LA) - The Parish of St. Landry 50¢ July 19, 1862
    During the Civil War, when Baton Rouge fell to Union forces in 1862, Opelousas became the state capital for nine months until it was occupied by Union troops as well. At that point, the state capital was moved to Shreveport. This 50 Cent note, printed in blue-green ink, was payable "in Confederate States Notes, or in the notes of the Banks of Louisiana when demanded in sums of Twenty Dollars or upwards." Fine, with bold signatures.
