THE WHISKEY REBELLION

In 1794, congress repealed a tax on distilled spirits, but replaced it with a new one causing the onset of
what was later known as the “Whiskey Rebellion.” Western Pennsylvania residents were unceremoniously
informed that the new tax would be collected, by force if necessary. They felt the tax was unfair and
organized the first rebellion against the fledgling US government. President George Washington mobilized
12,950 troops from eastern Pennsylvania, Virginia, Maryland, and New Jersey under general Harry Lee,
with the intent on quelling the rebellion and asserting the government’s authority to enact and enforce
laws. The rebellion ended with only minor confrontations and no loss of life.
