Why is the tax here, in Virginia, different from the tax in Maryland? This is so unfair!
Conflicts between Maryland and Virginia occur as citizens realize the difference of taxes from state to state. John and Samuel, farmers from different states disagree over what is right for their own states
How is this fair? I can't afford my farm anymore, how can I make a living?
Fighting occurs over resources and state borders, and the once friends, John and Samuel, argue over which state is better and who deserves what.
This is mine! Maryland is better than Virginia ever was!
This river belongs to Virginia!
With no central government, I don't know who to tell, there is no king, no president, Who do I send this letter too?
After attempting to solve the states' division conflict, John decides to send a letter of concern to the government but struggles to find of whom to address the letter to.
Dear... This suffering has gone on for too long, I have lost land, money, friends. we need a government where everybody is created equally and every state has the same rights.
John then heard about Daniel Shays' plan to storm Springfield Massachusetts and decided to take part in it, hoping to have justice in their government.
We must unite to rid of the articles and gain control and equality in our great lands.
The rebellion caused worry, because of the realization that the government didn't have the power to put down a rebellion, which leads to the end of the articles and the writing of the constitution.
My friend, the rebellion was effective, I can afford my farm, and we shall share our river together.
