This storyboard does not have a description.
Hamilton and Jefferson debate over whether Hamilton’s financial plan benefits everyone, or just the troubled states. His plan was to assume debt, establish a national bank, and place tariffs. Jefferson was convinced that Hamilton was only doing everything for himself. He worried that states that don’t have debt will have the burden of paying off other states deb if this happens
In order to have a stable government that was successful, Hamilton proposed a tax on whisky produced in the U.S. No one at the time liked the idea of taxes. Hamilton knew that hostile forces could not be tolerated. Hamilton asked for the use of military force. They sent a militia, but by the time they got there, the rebellion collapsed and the U.S proved they could keep order.
Jefferson opposed to the idea of neutrality, and Hamilton supported it. Washington sided with Hamilton, and issued a proclamation of neutrality. The issue was sensitive. The U.S had won their war of independence mostly because of the aid of France. Hamilton felt no sympathy for them, even though they are in war for the same reason, so Washington opted to stay neutral.
