Rebel postal services were formed in early 1861 under John H. Reagan, with operations commencing June 1. In contested sections of western Virginia, control of the mail often changed hands as battle lines ebbed and flowed. Southern strongholds in areas like Monroe County, where Maj. James Shanklin was postmaster, enjoyed more steady mail delivery the entirety of the war.
