Tallahassee, Florida, State of Florida, 100 dollars, 10-10-1861. Cr-2. Plate H, serial 4126. UNC, small brown stains and foxing (typical for this issue). Signed by John Milton, Governor of Florida from 1861 to 1865. A vocal secessionist, he supported the Confederate cause so strongly that he claimed "death would be preferable to reunion with them [the Yankees]." On April 1, 1865, in the closing days of the Civil War, he committed suicide by gunshot to the head.
