Monument to Shays Rebellion
Monument commemorating the last battle of Shays Rebellion in Massachusetts on February 27, 1787. This rebellion of debtor farmers in western Massachusetts convinced many political leaders in the early American Republic of the need for a stronger federal government than was provided for in the Articles of Confederation.
