Storyboard Text

  • Pay For Continental Soldier At The End Of The War
  • We are running low on money so we are paying you in paper certificates
  • Massachusetts Debt
  • since we have so much debt we are going to raise taxes and for the farmers if they don't pay we will foreclose on them and reposes their farms .
  • August 29th In North Hampton
  • Closed
  • They paid the Continental Army at the end of the War with paper certificates. I don't agree with this because they fought for the US. Most people sold there certificates to speculators but the speculators wanted them at a discounted prices.
  • September 25th - 28th
  • Were NOT Leaving!!
  • Massachusetts helped pay for War debt by raising taxes. If the farmers didn't pay they foreclosed their farms and the repossessed the farm.
  • Shays' New Plan
  • We need a plan to attack the federal aresnal.
  • On August 29th in North Hampton an armed group of farmers closed the Hampshire County Court of Common Pleas.
  • The editor of the Massachusetts Centinel's Observation
  • "late insurrections in the Commonwealth . . . must be considered as the cause of bringing [the federal] government] into existence, at a much earlier period than would otherwise have been."
  • On September 25th-28th an army of 600 farmers occupied the Springfield Courthouse just sitting there. And on the 29th 1,000 men marched on the debtor's courts. They carried swords, hemlocks, muskets, other guns, and clubs.
  • Shays' "New" plan was to mount a surprise attack, and overrun the new federal aresnal at Springfield. The defenders did not yield but they fired directly in to their ranks.
  • The editor of the Massachusetts Centinel's Observation obseved that "late insurrections in the Commonwealth must be considered as the cause of bringing government into existence, at a much earlier period than would otherwise have been." I disagree because they chose to count it late.
