Early Presidents and Early Problems

WHISKEY REBELLION

Hamilton imposed a tax on imports (tried to encourage

purchase of American goods)

Farmers in Western Penn upset when tax collectors came

Armed rebellion began

Washington called in the military to stop rebellion

Result = people would have to peacefully protest (through

Constitutional means)
