Whiskey Rebellion flag, 3x5' nylon
Whiskey Rebellion flag, 3x5' nylon - In 1794 the new federal government imposed a tax on whiskey-making. Many Pennsylvania farmers saw the tax as unfair and refused to pay!

George Washington had to send 12,000 soldiers to put down the rebellion. 100% Nylon reproduction, suitable for outdoor or indoor display, with canvas heading & brass grommets.
