Hamiltons Financial Plan
Gentleman may I propose my plan to you?
George Washington was inaugurated in New York City on April 30th 1789. He was nervous because he knew the entire nation depended on him, also he had to put a working government in place order for the nation to succeed.
When George Washington was inaugurated the country was in massive debt due to the revolutionary war and also they were in debt because of building Washington Dc and other governmental places.
Problems in the Northwest Territory
Dude were not even supposed to be here.
I know right.?
Alexander Hamilton's plan was to pay back all debt by making it all federal debt, Create a national bank, and create high tariffs on imported products. They passed this plan except for the tariffs because people were getting a lot of goods from Britain.
The French Revolution
Raised tax on our wiskey
To raise money for the government congress passed and act to increase the tax on whiskey. Farmers got upset and started do violent things for example they burnt down a tax collectors house and the militia was called in to stop the protest.
Why are you burning this mans house?!?!
There were two problems in the northwest territories first was that the british were still there. Second the british were supplying the natives with weapons to fight for there land.
THe people in france wanted freedom like america so people began protest and then the people got very violent. So then people in america started disliking the revolution.
