Don't know who made them but there are more than one type. I've seen one with Martha Washington on the same "One of the Rebels" Unused covers.

Who used them? Southern sympathizers such as copperheads? Rebels when writing to people in the north? Could it be people "rebelling" about some issue other than the civil war?

I don't know but here is a Martha Washington one. From this I think it could be someone saying that the revolutionary war heroes were also considered rebels in their war?

I can't say much about the purpose of the cover, but the female vignette was very likely copied from an 1850s Georgia banknote. The full vignette, which includes four figures, appears on a Vermont banknote from the same era.
