In this episode we are talking about the Whiskey Rebellion. The whiskey excise tax of 1791 was part of Alexander Hamilton’s plan to get the country out of debt. This played out to the tune of men being tarred and feathered and the only time a president physically led men into battle. And I love that whiskey is at the center of it all. People were so passionate about distilling whiskey they were willing to die for it, of course, there’s so much more to it than that! At the end of the episode we will drink the famed “Rebel Yell.”
