Originally, when america had borrowed money, it issued bonds, and bond owners sold them to daredevils seeking riches. Hamilton was offering to pay the bonds in full, causing many complaints to arise. Also, the southern states had complained that they would have to pay for other states debts. Had there not been any bonds issued, would there be less disputes?
Tariffs and Taxes
Hamilton won the support of the southern states by agreeing he would support the idea of locating the capital more southern of the united states. Congress later moved the capital in between virginia and maryland, naming the new capital Washington, after president George Washington. Would this make hamiltons claim false?
Trouble in the New Nation
Hamilton proposed a national bank so the nation would have a national currency, making economy able to run more smoothly. Madison and jefferson disagreed, saying the constitution did not grant that power. Hamilton then argued that it indirectly did have the power to create a national bank, and washington agreed. How would creating a national bank help economy grow?
The Whiskey Rebellion
Hamilton believed that tariffs should be imposed on the united states to gain revenue. But with this, Jefferson and Madison felt he was going to create too strong of a government, and started to organize a protest. Compare Hamilton's ideas to the long ago british rule. Do both seem to control the USA?
America was starting to face some troubling times. Washington stayed strong, and carried out his duties just as he was supposed to, but he faced the difficulties head on. Britain and france were pulling america into their conflicts, native americans were attacking americans, and uneasiness spread throughout the american citizens. Could this possibly escalate into war?
The whisky rebellion was a rebellion against the tax on whisky. Farmers in pennsylvania burned down buildings and rebelled against tax collectors. With this, washington sent troops to meet the rebellions challenge, showing america that the government would use force if necessary to maintain peace. Was it the right call for washington to send troops to pennsylvania?
