Lucy Pickens, who was the wife of the governor of South Carolina

 

1862 $1 Confederate Note

1862-1864 $100 Confederate Note

 

 

From http://www.titushistory.com/war_conf_money_01.html

 

Lucy advocated Confederate secession, and was the only woman ever depicted on its currency. She was featured 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 CSA loan certificates.

Lucy Pickens, a/k/a/ the "Queen of the Confederacy", was the only nonallegorical female to appear on a confederate note. I believe that she appears on at least three issues of Confederate $100 bills and a $1 Confederate bill, all from Columbia, South Carolina.
