New Web Site Features Released!

We are pleased to announce several new pages and features to our web site for CSA Members. The site now includes the ability to search and view ALL previous copies of The Confederate Philatelist (CP) online in PDF format. It is an amazing amount of research and philatelic history at your fingertips. This currently includes 384 copies of The Confederate Philatelist from 1956-2015 and is fully text searchable. This archive includes the ability to view low and high resolution versions of the CP and allows browsing only the table of contents for each issue as well.

We have also added a page of exhibits which display Confederate material. This include the exhibits from our 2015 Annual Convention in London.

The NEW Confederate States of America Catalog & Handbook of Stamps and Postal History a major success.

The much anticipated update, expansion and re-write of August Dietz classical work on Confederate Postal History has gone from "brand new" to "out of print" in only three months.  This six year endeavor on the part of the Confederate Stamp Alliance and its members has been a tremendous success. Congratulations to the editors Patricia A. Kaufmann, Francis J. Crown and Jerry S. Palazolo and to the many other members who contributed to this important contribution to Confederate philately.

For an illustrated and far more in depth look at both the history of prior catalogs and the marvelous changes in this 2012 edition, see A 21st Century Confederate Catalog.
