VERY FINE. A CHOICE AND RARE USE OF THE JEFFERSON DAVIS MEDALLION BI-COLORED PATRIOTIC DESIGN FROM CONFEDERATE-OCCUPIED KENTUCKY.

In September 1861, the town of Columbus was seized by Confederate forces, including the Louisiana "Shreveport Rebels" (this cover is addressed to Algiers La., in New Orleans). Columbus was of strategic importance, because it was the terminus of the Mobile and Ohio Railroad and because of its position along the Mississippi River. Confederate General Leonidas Polk tried to run and maintain a large anchor chain across the entire Mississippi at Columbus (which broke under its own weight) in order to block Union traffic down river. General Ulysses S. Grant responded by engaging the Confederates at Belmont on the Missouri shore. The Battle of Belmont was Grant's first direct combat during the war.

We have encountered a handful of Davis Medallion Patriotic covers used from Kentucky, but this is the first bicolored use we have offered
