NBER Working Paper No. 21221
---- Acknowledgments ----
This paper was prepared for a conference to honor Mark Harrison, organized by Jari Eloranta and Bishnu Gupta, Warwick University, March 31-April 1, 2014. An early draft was presented at a workshop on the Costs and Consequences of War, organized by Sarah Kreps, Cornell University, April 2013. On that occasion I benefitted from the comments of my discussant Jonathan Kirshner. Farley Grubb helped me understand monetary developments during the Revolutionary War. Nga Nguyen and Jessica Scheld provided able research assistance. I am solely responsible for the remaining errors.
