Professor's Classroom

Since I was unavoidably detained elsewhere on Monday, the quiz will be today.

In 1791, Congress levied a tax on farmers of Pennsylvania, which they refuse to pay and in 1794 Pres. Washington sent in the militia to enforce the tax. What was this incident called and what was the tax levied on?

Not tough. I am being very kind to you this day. Write it down may never happen again. Just put the answer on mmy desk and exit quietly---I need a nap!

This was the Whiskey Rebellion. It was started because the US put a tax an the use of excess corn for making whiskey.
