Lucy Holcombe Pickens, a Tyler resident, was the only woman pictured on Confederate money. Pickens was known during and after her lifetime as the “Queen of the Confederacy.” She was described as “beautiful, brilliant, and captivating” by her male contemporaries and this perception of her helped shape the stereotype of the “Southern belle.” Pickens is the only woman to be depicted on the currency of the Confederate States of America. She is on three issues of the $100 bill and one issue of the $1 bill which were printed in Columbia, South Carolina. She was also featured on one issue of $1,000 Confederate States of America loan certificates.
