The Whiskey Rebellion: Causes, Consequences, and Legacy

2 pages | 410 words

The Whiskey Rebellion was a collection of violent acts that took place in Western Pennsylvania in 1791 in opposition to a federal tax on whiskey. Even though the violence associated with the rebellion ceased, opposition to the tax on whiskey continued through successive political campaigns. Politicians who publicly opposed the tax on whiskey were successful in winning elections. The whiskey tax was proposed by Alexander Hamilton as a way to generate revenue for the government and to pay off the national debt. The tax was opposed by farmers in Western Pennsylvania who produced whiskey as a way to make a living. These farmers believed that the tax was unfair and would put them out of business. In 1794, President George Washington sent troops to Western Pennsylvania to quell the violence associated with the rebellion. The rebels surrendered and were pardoned by Washington. However, the opposition to the tax on whiskey continued.
