Rebels Or Resisters?

Students participate in a mock trial on the Whiskey Rebellion that took place in the state of Pennsylvania in 1794. They analyze the perspectives presented by both sides to determine whether the Whiskey "rebels" were guilty of rebelling and violating government laws or whether their actions as tax resisters were justifiable.
