FRESH AND VERY FINE. ONE OF ONLY SIX RECORDED EXAMPLES OF THE TULLAHOMA POSTMASTER'S PROVISIONAL KNOWN TO US.

Dr. Thomas L. Ray in the Nov. 1960 Confederate Philatelist explains that after the Battle of Murfreesboro, the Army of the Tennessee went into 1862-63 winter quarters in the vicinity of Tullahoma. The soldiers quickly depleted the stamps on hand and the Tullahoma postmaster prepared provisional envelopes to help relieve the shortage. Apparently, not many were prepared as they are quite rare. The examples we record are dated Mar. 13, Mar. 28, Mar. 31 (the example offered here), Apr. 1 (or 11), Apr. 5 and Apr. 7, all in 1863.

Ex Green, Wilkinson, Myerson and Dr. Agre
