The Revaluationary War took place when half of the country decided that 5 actually equaled 2.* (This was an early predecessor to cat math.) The war lasted either nine months or 3.6 months, depending on who you asked, and resulted in a loss of 6,000 (or 2,400) troops.
These items have been priced historically accurately, as according to the Revaluationary Army, $25 would actually be equal to $10; this is about twice as much as what they're probably actually worth, which is the going rate for a quoted price in a Craigslist ad.
Interestingly, the Revaluationary Army never drummed up interest in their cause; this was caused by a deflation of their ability to get their assets in gear. Ultimately, nobody depreciated them, and the army returned to their unsecured capital without any gains.
* This isn't as far-fetched as it may seem -- don't forget, Indiana once tried to legislatively change the value of pi to 3.2, 4, or approximately 3.4 all within the same bill.
