  • Shay's Rebellion January 1787
  • Hi I am Daniel Shay and I led the event called "Shay's Rebellion". Here is my story...
  • As many men, I fought in the American Revolution against Great Britain. After our victory, many men returned to Massachusetts to work on their farms.
  • American soldiers were to be paid after the war, but the Central Government could not raise money due to the Articles of the Confederation.
  • No soldiers have been paid for fighting in the war!
  • Sir, You have not paid your bills. The bank is taking your farm!
  • What!? I never got paid for fighting the war!
  • Many farmers lost their farms and went to prison because they were not paid by the government for fighting in the war.
  • You are under arrest for not paying your taxes!
  • I am Daniel Shay! I say we fight back against this unfair treatment, just like the Declaration of Indepenedence says we should! You with me?!
