Virtual Author Series: A Crisis of Peace
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.
