  • Paid
  • They couldn't have just paid us some real money.
  • I got paid a cerificate for my service. And i need money now or im gonna lose the farm.
  • Taxes
  • Were falling in debt guess we better raise the taxes.
  • It will be fine.
  • Isn't that what got us in this mess.
  • Rebel
  • What is the meaning of this!
  • No more foreclosures!
  • I told you raising taxes was a bad idea.
  • At the end of the war the soldiers were paid with paper certificates. And if you held on to them long enough you would cash them in for their full value. Well this was not fair cause soldiers needed money now to pay for the high taxes. So they all went ahead and cashed them in and that all they got for fighting in the war.
  • Occupying the courts
  • No more foreclosures!
  • They're here too!
  • When Massachusetts fell in war debt they started taxing the colonists. Just raised the taxes to make up for the debt. Which was un-fair to the farmers cause they had no money.
  • Federal Arsenal
  • OH NO!!!
  • On August 29, a group of armed farmers shut down the Hampshire county court. This way there would be no more foreclosures. They did this because the farmers were taking loans and could not re-pay them yet so the courts took their farms.
  • Massachusetts Centennial
  • On September 25th through 28th 600 colonists occupied the Springfield court house. That way the supreme judicial court couldn't use it. this angered the government and they sent 4,400 troops to protect their courts.
  • Shays new plan was to spring a surprise attack on the new federal arsenal in Springfield. This would give them the weapons they would need to fight the 4,400 state militia's. When they got there they expected their fellow veterans guarding it would let them take the weapons. They instead shot at them killing 4 of shay's men and injuring 20.
  • The Massachusetts Centennial said "late insurrections in the Commonwealth . . . must be considered as the cause of bringing [the federal] government] into existence, at a much earlier period than would otherwise have been." This basically mean the rebels made the constitution come faster. I agree, They were going to make the constitution the rebels just reminded them of the problem the articles have so the constitutions came faster.
