  • The Payment for the Colonial solders
  • I served in the war, I was not even paid in real money, we got dumb certificates!!!!
  • I know!!!!!!
  • Massachusetts Debt
  • Unfortunately we as the Mass. Legislature need to tax the people so we can escape our debts.
  • But the farmers and others that served in the war don't have enough money, well I guess you can?
  • Just move
  • August 29th in North Hampton
  • NO ONE GET'S BY US!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Yeah Really
  • The payment for the Colonial solders that risked there lives on the battle field was a certificates that were not real money. So the solders couldn't use to pay off their debts. I don't agree with this, I believe that the solders should have just gotten real money.
  • September 25th - 28th
  • Lets go do what Shay's men did!!!!
  • The Mass. Legislature taxed the citizens to raise money so that they could pay off there debts. This would affect the farmers because they could not sell their produce, lost there farms because they had not money to give for their taxes. The farmers were shocked because they were used to paying someone back when they had the money.
  • Shays' New Plan
  • It depends? Lets see it!
  • Bad
  • On August 29th, an armed group of farmers closed the Hampshire County Court of Common Pleas in Northampton, bringing all foreclosures to a stop. This happened because the people couldn't pay their taxes and they were getting there farms shut down.
  • Massachusetts Centinel's Observation
  • Shays' own band of 600 farmers (most wearing their Continental Army uniforms) occupied the Springfield courthouse and prevented the Supreme Judicial Court from sitting there. On the weeks that followed other farmers did the exact same thing in other towns.
  • Court house
  • Shays' New Plan was that they would mount a surprise attack and overrun the new federal arsenal at Springfield. They needed a new plan because they realized that they were facing an organized militia! Unfortunately when they came upon there opposites the opponents opend fire.
  • Here is the New Plan can you get the word out?
  • He said basically that something good like the Constitution can come out of something bad like the Shay's rebellion. I agree with this because this kind of gives hope or shows the light in the darkness.
  • Good
