The Rebellion

     ~The Rebellion~

                                                                                          
                                        People are still talking about what happened a
few months ago with "Shays Rebellion".What is "Shays rebellion"?If you havent heard about it yet it all started on August 29th 1786 when the farmers couldn't sell their goods.When they couldn't sell their goods,they couldn't pay their taxes.That didnt work out so well for them because the officials came took away their land and threw them right in jail.The farmers soon grew to hate the government.Danielle Shay then led over 1,000 farmers right here in town to Spring Feilds to our arsensal, to get guns and ammunition.So when the officials came again we shot over their heads so they would get scared and leave,but they kept coming back.We were then forced to shoot again.Four were found dead."A little rebellion is a good every now and then"say Thomas Jeferson.Right now as an american our town wont be able to handle any more violence if they can't control some of the farmers,im just waiting what crazy thing is going to happen next.
