Two handmade cards, the 6 and King of Diamonds, 3.5” x 2.5, fashioned from business cards from the Howard Family hydraulic cement plant located above Kingston, GA.

The faces of the pair of water colored “Diamond” cards exhibit light soiling, business card reverse faces remain clean. Includes cover envelope with inscription: “Cards made in The Civil War, By Frances J. Howard and Sarah W. Howard. The rest of the pack taken By the Yorks at Spring Bank.”

“Spring Bank” was the name of the plantation grounds purchased by Rev. Charles Howard in the 1830s, which also became the site of a “select” school for representative families from all over Cherokee Georgia. Rev. Howard also served as a Captain of Co. “I” of the 63rd Georgia, surviving the war, and passing in 1876. His daughter Frances J. Howard, who constructed these playing cards during the war as a young woman, later wrote an account of her family’s wartime adventures, a Neale Publication, titled “In and Out of the Lines.”

Colorful and fascinating Georgia Civil War collectible. Invites further research. In protective sleeve, research material included.  [jp] [ph:L]
