Census of Florida revenue-stamped documents, 1862–1872. In July 1862 the U.S. government, to help defray its expenses arising from the Civil War, enacted a broad spectrum of internal revenue taxes, to take effect the following October 1. Revenue-stamped documents from Florida during the period of broad Civil War taxes, 1865–72, are practically nonexistent. In some 35 years of assiduous searching I have recorded only 48 Florida documents with adhesive revenues affixed during 1865–72, and estimate that perhaps 75–100 exist. All recorded pieces are tabulated herein.
