Daniel Bullen

Join us live and in-person on Tuesday, January 25 at 7 PM for a conversation with Daniel Bullen around his new book, Daniel Shays's Honorable Rebellion: An American Story. This date is the 235th anniversary of the beginning of the rebellion.

About the Book

On January 25, 1787, in Springfield, Massachusetts, militia Major General William Shepard ordered his cannon to fire grapeshot at a peaceful demonstration of 1,200 farmers approaching the federal arsenal. The shots killed four and wounded twenty, marking the climax of five months of civil disobedience in Massachusetts, where farmers challenged the state’s authority to seize their farms for flagrantly unjust taxes. Government leaders and influential merchants painted these protests as a violent attempt to overthrow the state.     Daniel Shays’s Honorable Rebellion: An American Story by Daniel Bullen tells the history of the crisis from the protesters’ perspective.
