Yes, Daniel Shays led Shays' Rebellion. Because judges kept seizing farmer's land and putting the farmers in jail for not paying taxes.
After the American Revolution, many of the veterans returned home to discover that the new nation was in a economic depression due to the large was debt and the lack of va…lue of the currency. In Massachusetts farmers who took out large loans to grow food for the war, effort found that their debts were being called up by the banks those who couldn't pay were often jailed. As more and more men were being imprisoned those who weren't become restless about their own futures and the futures of their families. Daniel Shay took the lead by training the farmers as an army pulling from his experience in the Revolution and they began closing the courts by force so on more of the farmers would tries and jail. The state government found itself in trouble and began to raise a mercenary army to fight Shay's. Shays went after the armory at Spring field were he met with 900 militia who fired on Shay's forced who then turned and retreated.
The national government was unable to raise forces to put down Shays's Rebellion. / Shays's supporters were elected to the Massachusetts legislature. The Massachusetts legisla…ture repealed the taxes and stopped paying its debts. / The American Revolution left states deeply in debt. / Congress agreed to call a meeting "for the sole and express purpose of revising the Articles of Confederation." / Daniel Shays led a group of armed farmers who used the language of the American Revolution against the Massachusetts legislature.
The Shays Rebellion was started by Daniel Shays, an American soldier and farmer. The rebellion started because people were taken to prison because they couldn't pay off debt. …The Whiskey Rebellion was a protest on taxes. "Taxation without Representation". They were both affecting by farmers. They were also both rebellions Both against the government Both against tax
it changed history
A new constitution
NO they were 2 completely different rebellions. ------- Whiskey Rebellion's purpose was to oppose the new heavy taxes that were placed on whiskey. Taxes were placed on impor…ted alcohol in order to pay off the debt owed to European investors from the Revolutionary War, like France. This is the era when America started distilling their own backyard whiskey to evade tax collectors. From fermented corn people were able to distill it to a clear and extremely potent alcoholic drink, later called (white lighting or moonshine). George Washington sent more troops to stop the rebellion than he did for the Revolutionary War. Tax collectors were dumped in tar and feathers to rebel and humiliate the government. George Washington was so impressed by the bootleggers that he himself had "alembics" to make his own, which was apple whiskey. Bourbon was then born. Shay's Rebellion was named after Daniel Shay who was one of the many unpaid war veterans from the Continental Army who had to give up their homes to unpaid debts. Even after givin up so much to for their country they were being harassed by sherrif's, constables, lawyers, and tax collectors. Samuel Adams helped draw up the Riot Act, which would punish anybody who would instigate public riots in Massachussetts.
The government under the Articles of Confederation could not aid Mass. in putting down the "rebellion" as it was to weak to act. Mass. was left to end the event. The rebellion… eventually collapsed but the problems continued. Shays and his followers believed they were simply carrying on the sprit of the Revolution. Thomas Jefferson, then minister to France, agreed with them. "A little rebellion now and then is a good thing," he wrote to a friend. "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants." Washington did not agree with Jefferson. He welcomed the failure of Shays's Rebellion and he compared it to his having to use force to prevent a military coup by a group of army officers under his command. Shays and the government of Massachusetts agreed to a meeting in an attempt to end the stalemate. The governor sent the state militia to the armory and Shays's agree to march in with his "troops." The state militia fired and four of Shays's men were killed. The remainder were arrested and tried and several of he rebels were fined and imprisoned, but some received the death penalty. A general amnesty was granted in 1788. Most of the men, by then, had been released or had their death sentences commuted. Two men were hanged on 6 December 1787. Shays was pardoned and he eventually moved to New York where he died in 1825.
Shays Rebellion was when farmers revolted and burned down courthouses and caused lots of damage. They fled once they heard the forces were coming to stop them, most escaped to… the woods safely but a few were shot and killed. This rebellion showed government that the articles of confederation did not work, (the articles of confederation was a 'constitution' that created a very loose tie between the colonies), and led to the revising and editing of the articles. The articles were actually thrown out and a whole new document, the constitution, took its place. Whiskey Rebellion was when the government put a tax on all whiskey (and other alcoholic drinks) made or shipped to the US. Since most farmers drank alcohol they were furious and revolted. This was shortly after the constitution and new government went into action and when Washington sent his troops and they arrived quickly, it proved to Americans the new government would act quickly in times of crisis.
No Daniel Shays did not died in the Shays's Rebellion. After his rebellion fail, he was condamened to a death penalty. Even tho others of his rebellion were granted forgivenes…s, Daniel Shays was not one of them because the govenment was very scared of him and what he was capable of doing. Then he was killed.

They both had similar meanings to rebel. They both were because of ridiculous taxes.
After Shay's Rebellion some people argued that Congress needed more power.They decided to replace the Articles of Confederation.
Daniel Shays and other farmers wanted the state government to stop taking their farms and give them time to pay their debts.
Shay's rebellion and the Whisky rebellion were both armed rebellion over taxes.
