During Shays's Rebellion, the state was unable to control Shays and his followers and requested help from the government under the Articles. The Articles of Confederation was a weak government and was unable to support, with force, the state of MA in order to aid in the defeat of the rebellion. The Whiskey Rebellion occurred under the new Constitution of the US. Western PA farmers refused to pay the tax that was enacted on whiskey by the new federal government. This was the first test of the new government to enforce the laws it enacted. President Washington ordered troops into the area of western PA and the Whiskey Rebellion collapsed as it became evident that the government was capable of enforcing the law.

What was the result of the Whiskey Rebellion?

The result of the Whiskey Rebellion of 1794 was that after Washington and Hamilton marched to western Pennsylvania the revolt collapsed because they were too afraid of an army 15,000 strong attacking them. 20 of the men were arrested but later all except for two were abdicated. The other two were hung sadly. This then let the American people trust that the government could stop an outbreak like this and that they were much stronger that the previous government under the Articles of Confederation. The tax was collected but without much success since it was difficult to do.
