Interested in this period, with lots of questions. For one, does anyone know what Savannahians used as money AFTER Sherman arrived December 21, 1864? If something was advertised as $5, what was the medium of exchange? Confederate scrip? Yankee greenbacks? Gold? Hard to find this information. I've read all the books, and info's not there. Old Savannah newspapers (The Republican and Daily Herald) may have info but they are not online.
CS script was totally worthless by that time. US coinage continued to be used throughout the war w/ bartering thrown in to supplement & in places suplant.
When US troops arrived they were also paid, some for the first time in 4 mos, and many spent freely in the city; which helped considerably. Savannah residents were less hostile to Shermans men than most any for a variety of reasons not the least of which was Shermans order to provide rations to the city and when Shermans men gave the children a Christmas... many a hard feeling evaporated.
Thanks. Do you have any printed reference on this subject? I could probably find such at GHQ (Georgia Historical Society, in Savannah) but haven't been able to find anything on the internet or in the usual books.
