Best Answer

Named after Revolutionary War Captain Daniel Shay, Shay's Rebellion (1786-1787) led poor farmers in north and western Massachusetts against the Republican government in Boston. It was the first armed rebellion against the new American government. The long-term result was that Massachusetts violent response led to the Articles of Confederation being replaced by the just-written Constitution of the United States.
