Can a representative government succeed in balancing the local needs of communities against the needs of the nation?  In the 1790s the Whiskey Rebellion and Fries’s Rebellion kept this question at the forefront as these Regulators resisted unpopular #taxes  and #laws  .  These Regulators armed themselves and organized through the militias to show they expressed the will of the “body of the people.”  But they were branded rebels and anarchists by leaders of the new nation who denounced violent protest and insisted that the electoral process was the only means to express political dissent in a post-revolutionary world.  #rebellion   #revolution   #protest   #2A

Who determines when a #revolution  is over?  This month's article looks as Shays's Rebellion as the "last battle of the American Revolution."  Who determines who makes up the "body of the people" and whether armed protest is legitimate?  Part of a continued series looking at the question of the right of regulation and limits of popular dissent. #ushistory   #rebellion
