US USED IN THE CONFEDERACY

7-STARS *

Alabama seceded from the Union on 11 JAN 1861 and joined the CSA on 4 FEB 1861. This cover dated 10 MAY 1861 from Huntsville, Ala falls into the US USED IN THE CSA period. Note that the cover is addressed to Lynchburg, Va. Virginia seceded 17 APR 1861 and joined the CSA on 7 MAY 1861. This cover was therefore carried by the United States Postal Service entirely within the Confederacy which makes for an interesting paradox.
