Object Name Stone, Lithograph
Catalog Number 0985.10.00277
Description Fragment of lithograph stone for map. Irregular piece of limestone, remnants of lines and words etched into the surface. "Wentworth" is written in script below "Cascade Cr." and "Reidsville".
Dimensions H-4 W-1.5 inches
Owned owner/user unknown
Provenance According to note found with stone, "Lithographic stone used at Anderson, South Carolina to engrave Confederate government bonds and bills." However, stone shows portion of map, NOT currency. History may have been mistakenly assigned to this object, or the currency stone may have been on the reverse (as double-sided stones are common). This stone appears to be for a map, "Map of Eastern Virginia and North Carolina: From the United States Coast Survey," published by Evans and Cogswell at Columbia, South Carolina, 1864.)
