The Whiskey Rebellion happened in 1974. It was an uprising of farmers and distillers in protest of whiskey tax.
NO WHISKEY TAXES!!!
The Whiskey Rebellion was the first serious challenge to federal authority. Collection of the tax met violent resistance, but when President Washington called out the militia, the rebellion collapsed.
During the Whiskey Rebellion, this "war" was controlled by American Revolutionary war veteran Major James McFarlane. Around 35 people were arrested because of extreme actions related to the rebellion.
The rebellion took place in Pennsylvania. Once the farmer in this area took notice they started to rebel against the taxes for whiskey.
President George and his government ordered nearly 13,000 federal soldiers into western Pennsylvania to crush this rebellion. In his 1796 Farewell Address, Washington restated his objection to the rise of powerful state and regional interests and to political parties.
