Hamilton's three-step plan was: to pay off all war debts, to raise government revenue and to create a national bank. Hamilton wanted the government to pay the debt of the states who had not paid yet. But they wanted some of the southern states including Virginia, Georgia and much more to help pay off the debt of the northern state. Jefferson thought it was unfair because they had already paid off their own. They lead their cases to President Washington and he decided to make a compromise.
Because of Hamilton's financial plan Washington placed a tax on whiskey. This angered farmers from Pennsylvania to Georgia. This tax was bad for them because whenever the streets would go bad ad couldn't get their crops to the market. So they just made whiskey out of wheat and rye because it is easier to carry liquids than solids. Two barrels of whiskey is the equivalent to twenty-four bushels of rye.
It was 1789 and the people of France were rebelling because of a financial crisis. Inspired by the Americans of course. The French wanted liberty and equality. In the beginning, the Americans supported the revolution. But it started to get deadly. Thousands of citizens had been massacred. France declared war on Britain, Holland and Spain. We needed both the French and the British. We decided to remain neutral.
