No. 166030, Plate W. A wonderful military issued T-41 from an issuer who is unlisted in either the McNeil reference or the 2014 edition of Collecting Confederate Paper Money by Fricke. Major William W. Morrison issued this note April 18, 1863. Morrison was a native of Iredell County, North Carolina and prior to the onset of the Civil War he had been the United States Postmaster for Statesville, North Carolina. Morrison joined the Confederate Army July 19, 1861 with the rank of Captain reporting to Brigadier General R.C. Gatlin. Morrison served as Assistant Commissary of Subsistence in the Military District of Pamlico posted in Goldsboro, North Carolina. Morrison was promoted to Major in September of 1861 and later served on the staff of Brigadier General L.S. Baker. At the conclusion of the war Morrison was paroled at Charlotte, North Carolina on May 20, 1865.

Morrison was from a prominent North Carolina family. His father Robert Hall Morrison was a Presbyterian minister who served as the first president of Davidson College. Two of Morrison's brothers also served in the Confederate Army and six of Morrison's sisters married Confederate military officers. Of particular note, Morrison's sister Mary Anna married Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson in 1857.

The manuscript is perfectly penned and totally legible reading in full, "Passed April 18, 1863 by Wm. W. Morrison, Major + C.S. Ast."
Below the manuscript is an 1864 interest paid stamp from Raleigh, North Carolina attesting to this note's time spent in the Tar Heel state.
