Why are John Gelston and Walter Wimple sending monies to Gerard Bancker?
Research the effect the current national debt has on the economic well-being of citizens in the US today.
Create a series of journal entries from the perspectives of a person who owes a debt and a person who collects the debt. How do their perspectives serve as an example of the economic problems faced by Americans after the Revolutionary War?
