Hamilton suggested a 3 part plan. Part 1 the country will pay all the state debt. Part 2 open a national bank, and part 3 they would raise tarrifs. Only the first 2 parts were approved.
The federal government raised the tax on the production of whiskey. This made the Americans mad so they burnt down a tex collectors house. The government sent the militia to show armed rebellions will not be tollerated.
The problem was the British were not following the Treaty Of Paris, and they were supplying the native Americans with guns to use against the americans. Another problem was the native Americans refused to sell their lands.
Use these guns against the Americans.
The French revolution was about destroying an unfair class system. Most Americans supported the revolution until it turned violent. Then it left Washington to chose between their allies or their trade partners. The French and The British still hated eachother.
