Whiskey, Ice and Federal-State Powers

The American system is one of divided and concurrent power. Where state starts and federal ends has not always been easy to clarify. A heat wave and a rebellion are among the many incidents that filled in the gaps.

Most importantly, The Whiskey Rebellion went a long way to define federal and state powers. The actions taken by President Washington to enforce Federal tax authority, his behavior in regards to contentions of the Pennsylvania governor asserting state power, as well as the large size of the operation, all set important standards that help to define politics today.
