It is my understanding that regular troops in the Confederate Army were paid $11.00 a month. Did they ever send that money home to families, and if so, how? The mail ceased delivery. As the war progressed and coffers emptied, at what point did they stop paying the men? For example, the soldiers were not provided even necessary food sustenance, nor clothing, and at the close of war, “muster out” pay was $1.25 each.
