now that the war is over we will have to find a way to pay all of the soldiers that fought for us
I thought I was going to be paid I never thought that all of the taxes would be raised .
I want MONEY for that
I have non good sir
After the revolutionary war the government had to figure out how to pay the soldiers who had fought for them in the war
you can not take the farms of unpaid veterans because they cant pay taxes.
After the was Daniel shays came home to find that he would not be paid but the taxes would be raised
you can not take our wepons
The raised taxes were starting to have serious effects on the veterans who could not pay for food or suplies.
I guess that they forgave me for the rebellion after a couple months of hiding in Vermont.
Daniel shays and some other unpaid veterans formed a group called the regulators that did things like barricade courthouses to keep the lawmakers from seizing farms.
Yeah we wont let you into the court-house!
The regulators formed a plan to take the state armory and force the government to pay the but they were ambushed by the Massachusetts milita. Daniel Shays fled to Vermont where he stayed for a few months
After the rebellion the government pardoned any member of the rebellion who paid 1 penny to take an oat of loyalty and Daniel shay was given a small amount of money for his military service and lived out his life on a small farm.
