    The purpose of the British Bondholder Committee was to pool all of the outstanding Confederate bonds purchased by England with an attempt to collect on them. Bondholders would deposit their bonds into an account and were given a scrip certificate in exchange. Payment was never made on the bonds since the Confederacy no longer existed after the war and the U.S. would not honor the payment.
