Also, what was the Whiskey Rebellion and what was the outcome?
Whiskey Rebellion, (1794), in American history, uprising that afforded the new U.S. government its first opportunity to establish federal authority by military means within state boundaries, as officials moved into western Pennsylvania to quell an uprising of settlers rebelling against the liquor tax.
Also, how did the Whiskey Rebellion affect farmers? President Washington's use of soldiers to make the farmers stop rebelling had two effects: 1) the government was able to demonstrate its power and 2) the Federalist Party lost the support of the people. The wealthy people's perspective of President Washington's Whiskey Rebellion action was that it was a good move.
Moreover, what happened to the leaders of the Whiskey Rebellion?
The Whiskey Rebellion (also known as the Whiskey Insurrection) was a tax protest in the United States beginning in 1791 and ending in 1794 during the presidency of George Washington, ultimately under the command of American Revolutionary war veteran Major James McFarlane. These farmers resisted the tax.
Who was involved in the Whiskey Rebellion and why were they protesting?
Farmers were involved in the whiskey Rebellion because they did not have money to pay a special tax for whiskey because they traded their goods, not useing money. The government sent the army to mean that protesting must be done peacefully under the constitution, not violently.
