The U.S. Government Bond Trading Database, 1776-1835 is now available on EH.NET
Compiled under the supervision of Robert E. Wright (Stern School of Business, NYU), the database contains 19 files and over a quarter million loan office certificate and government bond (6s, Deferred 6s, 3s, other) transactions in 12 states over almost 6 decades.
Originally created to support _One Nation Under Debt: Hamilton, Jefferson, and the History of What We Owe_ (New York: McGraw-Hill, 2008), the database should prove a valuable resource to historians, political scientists, economists, genealogists and others interested in America's early economic, business, and political history.
