"This book is about the chaotic world of money in the pre-Civil War United States (from the Revolutionary War to the 1860s). There were various kinds of currency, with different values and different discounts and various restrictions on where it could be used. This book investigates how everyday people gained and used financial knowledge in this complex currency environment"-- Provided by publisher
