That is how the soldiers were payed after the war.
  • September 25th- 28th
  • To pay their debt Massachusetts raised taxes and many farmers could not pay those taxes. First of all, many farmers did not make enough money to pay the taxes. Secondly, if you did not pay the taxes the government would take your farm which surprised many. Finally, they were surprised because if they were a soldier they had paper certificates that they could not use. That is what they did to pay debt
