pay your debts sir
farmers were greatly impacted by this depression farmers were in a very difficult situation and could not pay their debts
to make matters even worse the state of Massachusetts raised taxes if farmers in Massachusetts could not pay his taxes the state threatened to take his farm or throw the farmer in jail 1,000 farmers took part in a rebellion gathered near a courthouse and stopped the state from taking farms from farmers who could not pay their taxes
please no you already taxed our debts even higher
do you want to get your land took or thrown in jail~~pay your debts!
the government of Massachusetts sent the militia to drive the farmers away to send them back to their farms.
you cant do this we cant leave
yall are all required to go back to your farms
americans saw Shays' Rebellion as a sign that the articles of confederation did not work as an effective constitution for the USA
