Michael Goudket, the Adjutant General of the Order of the Ancient & Honorable Huntington Militia, explains currency used in 18th Century Colonial America. To better understand daily life and material culture in Colonial America, one must understand this pre-decimal English monetary system. Michael is also a docent and living history interpreter at Raynham Hall Museum, the home of the Townsend Family of Oyster Bay. Michael interprets Robert Townsend, who was a New York merchant and secretly 'Culper Jr.' in Washington's Culper Spy Ring during the American Revolutionary War. Who better to talk about money than a merchant? Enjoy!
