The Whiskey Rebellion took place in 1794. The federal government had placed a ten-cent tax on every gallon of whiskey made. This hit the small farmer hard since whiskey making was quite common. To quell the uprising of farmers the government sent in a contingent of Militia. Washington County, Pennsylvania was at the center of this uprising. This is also where my gggg-grandfather James Young lived with his family. The question is how much was he involved in this if any? I will probably never know. The picture is of Washington County. James Young lived in Fallowfield Township.
