We have too much war debt! To fix this, we shall tax our citizens.
These taxes are outrageous! I used to fight for the army and now this is what we have to deal with? C´mon, let´s rebel! Who´s with me?
All about Shay´s Rebellion, by Misty Singh.
The Congress realized they had not much power (due to the Articles of Confederation), and they didn´t have enough money to fund for people to stop all the rebelling. So what did they do?
Here, some of the Nationalists are discussing and deciding to tax the citizens.
Due to Shay´s Rebellion, many Nationalists decided to proclaim the Articles of Confederation insufficient. After this, they urged support for the Constitution. And after that, Daniel Shays was paid for his service and he helped strengthen the government.
Daniel Shays (the one speaking above) is outraged and he decides to rebel! After his speech, many people agreed with him and so he decided to lead a rebellion.
