the Confederate Generals of the Civil War deck is a facsimile production of playing cards originally published in 1863 by M. Nelson, New York. Each card features an engraved portrait of a general or statesman of the Confederacy. Jokers were not included in the original deck, but this reproduction includes two extra cards that bear a list of the names and dates of birth and death of each figure appearing in the deck. The spellings of the names or the names themselves may differ from those on the cards, due to errors in the original deck.
The Civil War started on April 12, 1861 when Confederate artillery shelled Fort Sumter in the harbor of Charleston, SC. Many people called this tragic conflict the War Between the States, the War of the Succession, of the War for Southern Indepence.
Each deck contains 54 cards.
