Virtual Author Series featuring David Head

ZOOM, 2pm

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. This is a paid program that requires pre-registration.
