NOW ON PATREON: Whiskey Rebellion and Federal-State Power

On the Premium Podcast of My History Can Beat Up Your politics, we discuss both the Whiskey rebels that struck Pennsylvania in 1794, how they may have had larger aims than just repealing a tax and the conflicts it brought about.

We hear the story of Washington leading troops into the countryside to save the Western Part of the United States from riot and rebellion.  And it’s a true story of course.  His actions are critical.  Less known is how he had to accomplish the task with the reluctance of the state government in Pennsylvania, who didn’t see a Federal army as necessary to deal with its state’s citizens.
