Storyboard Text

  • In 1790 Alexander Hamilton pushed for congress to try and get out of debt so he suggested an excised tax on whiskey was nessescary to help with further financial trouble.
  • We should get rid of our debt by putting taxes on the whiskey!!
  • Ummm... Ok sure let's go with it.
  • President Washington was opposed to the suggestion but he met with citizens in Pennsylvania and Virginia and government officials were enthusiastic about the idea so it got passed by congress.
  • Americans Love Whiskey
  • I've spoken with the people and they agree that the law should be passes so it looks as if the tax will be placed.
  • Sounds like a plan!
  • After the tax ordeal with England the colonists were unsatisfied with the new tax on the whiskey which led to the start of the Whiskey Rebellion.
  • NO MORE TAX!!!!
  • Inevitably violence broke out and crazy people were torturing other people, For example John Conner was sent out into the woods and left on a tree before someone found him after 5 hours.
  • HELP!!!!!
  • Several other events happened including Washington's Militia and the Destruction of Bower Hill which was almost an all out war on someones property which left lots of destruction in the process.
  • After this long chain of events the tax was taken away just because of how hard it was to collect but this left major impacts on tax and whiskey that are still being used today.
  • I knew it wouldn't work out but did you people listen ? Nooooo not at all.
