The Whiskey Rebellion

The Whiskey Rebellion was an uprising of Western Pennsylvania farmers between 1791-1794 in response to Alexander Hamilton's excise tax on whiskey. A federal militia was organized in 1794 to put down the rebellion. When the rebels dispersed without a single shot being fired, Hamilton and the Federalists hailed it as a victory for the newly formed federal government created by the United States Constitution.
