Welcome to my Web Page. Please bookmark this page if you intend to return to the site. By visiting this website, you are about to embark on a journey through Confederate Philately. All the various sections are listed on the toolbar at the left. Clicking each button on the toolbar in turn will open that section in this frame with the toolbar always remaining at the left for easy navigation. Use the Site Map for an outline view of the complete website. For the optimum visual effect, it would be best if your screen was maximized. The listings and the images of the stamps and covers are best viewed with Internet Explorer. Firefox and Chrome will not show the table border frame colors. For example, this table has a two color blue and red border in Internet Explorer but only shows as  two shades of gray in Firefox. Please do not forget to sign the GUESTBOOK when you have finished browsing the site. I certainly hope that you will enjoy your tour of Confederate Philately.
