Greenback America

Greenback America Research and Reflections


The Greenback America team continued the research this week for their upcoming exhibit (see photo at the Library of Virginia below). The team’s Post-Doctoral Fellow, Michael Caires (pictured right in the photo), also took some time off from research to write a post for the popular Muster blog of the Journal of the Civil War Era. In the post, Caires does one thing the team intends to do with their exhibit, make the history of greenbacks relevant to a modern-day audience. Take a look- The Bubble: Greenbacks, Corruption, and the Politics of Looking Backwards.
