Shortly after the end of the Revolutionary war the new American country needed currency, and Stephen Burroughs was happy to oblige. He printed more different banknotes than anyone in his day. Unfortunately, they were all counterfeits. The story of Stephen Burroughs starts out conventionally enough. Burroughs grew up in the small town of Coventry, N. He was born in , the son of a prominent Presbyterian minister. But he embellished on the tradition.
Widely considered by historians as one of the most colorful characters of American history, Stephen Burroughs is also one of the least known -- despite writing and publishing a memoir that remains in print today. Burroughs was born in New Hampshire in and was raised throughout the Northeastern United States. From an early age, he showed distinct signs of acute chicanery: When he stole several watermelons from a local farmer as a boy, he joined the search party assembled to find the thief. As he grew older, Burroughs' crimes became more serious. He was posing as a minister and had led a congregation for six months when he was first arrested for passing counterfeit money in Springfield, Mass. Fearing an escape attempt, authorities soon moved him to a prison in Northampton, Mass.
