About this item

The early years of the United States werent wholly tranquil. The new nation was on rocky economic ground. Though paper money was in circulation, it wasnt worth much. Many people were suffering and didnt have a voice in government. These conditions gave rise to the rebellion led by former Continental army captain Daniel Shays, beginning in 1786. This volume explains what happened when Shays and more than one thousand followers attempted to capture a Massachusetts arsenal and how this rebellion led to the formation of a new and stronger federal government.
