Confederate War Tax

We are authorized by Mr. Treasurer Courts to state, that this State’s portion of the Confederate war tax was paid by him to the Confederate States Treasurer, on the 31st of March last. Our blessed old state will not be behind any in the Confederacy in doing her full duty in carrying on the war. She has perhaps, more fully complied with her contract with the Confederate government, in clothing and equipping her soldiers than any of the States.
