In March 1783, an anonymous letter circulating through the Continental Army’s camp near Newburgh, New York called for the officers to meet and act boldly to obtain their long-overdue pay and desperately-needed pensions from Congress. Did the officers act on their own? Or did scheming politicians put them up to it? A Crisis of Peace provides a fresh look at an old mystery.

David Head is an associate lecturer of history at the University of Central Florida and a former research fellow at George Washington’s Mt. Vernon.
