The strong emotions stimulated by the issues and current events of the Civil War found expression in the form of illustrated stationery. Although Union envelopes bearing patriotic illustrations appeared before hostilities began, Confederate stationary quickly broadcast a variety of covers picturing flags, cannons, leaders, soldiers, and other wartime themes.
