This work describes the first major domestic challenge to this nation. In 1794 many on the frontier revolted against a federal tax on the distilling of whiskey. The rebellion was met by a large military crackdown led by President Washington and Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton. The author takes a critical view of these two Founders, perhaps too critical. Still, this work does extremely well in describing American culture in the Federalist era. Simon Vance, a Brit, may not seem like the man to narrate this work. However, he captures the listener's ear in the first few minutes. He is amazingly clear in pronouncing every word and has a deliberate drollness that is quite winsome. M.T.F. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 06/ JAN 07]
