A decisive victory by combined assault of American forces led by General George Washington and French forces led by the Comte de Rochambeau over a British Army commanded by Lieutenant General Lord Cornwallis.

    Whiskey Rebellion

    was a tax protest in Pennsylvania in the 1790s, during the presidency of George Washington. The conflict was rooted in western dissatisfaction with a 1791 excise tax on whiskey.  The Washington administration responded by sending peace commissioners to negotiate with the rebels, while at the same time calling on state governors to provide militia forces if needed.  The Whiskey Rebellion demonstrated that the new national government had the willingness and ability to suppress violent resistance to its laws.

    Led by Daniel Shays, this rebellion dealt with poor farmers who could not pay their debts because of crushing and prohibitive taxes.  Many of their farms were being confiscated by banks and this angered them to the point of rebellion.  Shays' Rebellion is significant because it demonstrated to the country the need for a strong national government.
