VERY FINE APPEARING CONFEDERATE PATRIOTIC COVER USED ON THE DAY TENNESSEE WAS ADMITTED TO THE CONFEDERACY.

Tennessee passed ordinances of secession on May 6, 1861 and was admitted as a Confederate state on July 2, 1861. Nashville was occupied by Federal troops beginning in February 1862, so while there is no year date on this cover it must be an 1861 usage.
