Whiskey Rebels: The Story of a Frontier Uprising

Excerpt

The author desires to express his appreciation of the aid given by the staff members of a number of depositories, particularly the Historical Society of Western Pennsylvania, the Darlington Library of the University of Pittsburgh, the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, the Library of Congress, and the Connecticut Historical Society. For editorial assistance he desires to thank Elisabeth M. Sellers, a fellow member of the staff of the Western Pennsylvania Historical Survey, and Dr. Solon J. Buck, former director of the Survey.

There are great gaps in the materials bearing on the Whiskey Insurrection, particularly on the military and statistical aspects, and on the motivations of the inner council of the Federalist party. It is probable that statistics on the distilling business in the United States in the 1790's exist in the Tench Coxe Papers, but unfortunately access could not be obtained to them.
