A Confederate States of America five dollar bill from 1863

This is an original 5 dollar Confederate note that has been cancelled. Meaning it was paid by the government. It is interesting if you read some things written onto the bill. Enlarge this and read some of the writing on top. Most unique is the statement talking of 2 years of a treaty of peace between the North and South.    This bill was good I gather till July of 1865.  By July of 65 there was no more Confederate States of America.
