  • This is NOT fair!!!
  • August 29th in North Hampton
  • Lets Do This...
  • They would give them certificates issued by the Government. The certificate would spectulars at greatly discounted prices. This was a okay decision, if they needed money they didn't get any for just risking their life. They also get discounts off prices they may have needed too so that was good too. This is why they paper certificates was a okay decison
  • September 25th - 28th
  • What the Massachusetts plan to get out of debt was, they were going to raise taxes. They were going to do this because they needed money to get out of debt. They also made where they would be paid in hard money. They did this so they would also have money to get out of debt. This is what they did to get Massachusetts out of debt.
  • Shays' New Plan
  • What happend was a large group of armed farmers closed the Hampshire Court of Common Pleas in North Hampton. They did this bringing all foreclosers to a hault. They did this because the Government wasn't being fair to them. They were getting paid less but had to pay taxes and if they couldn't they got there land taken away. This is what happend August 29th.
  • The editor of the Massachusetts Centinel's Observation
  • We thank the rebellion for our federal government because with out them we would have a completely different government now.
  • Shay's own band of 600 farmers, most wearing their continental army uniforms, occupied the Springfield Courthouse and prevented the supreme court from sitting there. They did this because if the government wont't treat them right. They are taking away what they own. They are now angry and thry want to fix what they are doing before they try to take away more.
  • Shay had a new plan. He was going to attack but, he was going to attack the federal aresenal and overrun them. They were going to suprise attack them so that they would be easier to get them. This attack was one of his huge plays and now many people know about what he did.
  • Soon after the Constutution was ratified the editor of the Massachusetts Centinel observed that the "late rebellion in the country must be considerd as the cause of bringing the federal government into exixtance at a much earilier period than would otherwise have been. I agree. If they didn't have a rebellion they would have had to suffer many hardships for much longer. Our government would be different if they wouldn't have rebelled. We would also not have had the laws we have now.
