Description:
Whiskey Rebellion - Important Manuscript Document Listing the Persons arrested in the Whiskey Rebellion. 2 pages, 8" x 10", [no place] March 4, [1795] being a "List of Prisoners Committed for Crimes against the United States" listing the names of thirty men arrested after federal troops marched into western Pennsylvania to suppress the Whiskey Rebellion including the noted radical Herman Husband and sheriffs John Hamilton and John Corbley. It also includes the only two men who were ultimately convicted and sentenced to execution in relation to the Whiskey Rebellion -- later pardoned by President Washington: Philip Wigle, and John Mitchell. The document, kept between the fall of 1794 and late winter 1795, chronicles the fates of various prisoners as they awaited trials that would not be held until the spring, noting when various men were bailed out of prison and when others were committed to jail. The names include the 20 men who were "Committed 25th Decmr. 1794" including James Kirr, John Hamilton, John Lochery, John Corbley, John Black, David Bolton, Thomas Sedgwick, William Crawford, James Steward, Robert Porter, John Barnett, Thomas Miller, Samuel Nye, Philip Wigle (misspelled "Vigel" in text), Joseph Posey, Marmaduke Curtis, Thomas Burney, Joseph Scot, Caleb Mountz, and Isaac Walker. Those prisoners "Committed 29th October 1794" included Herman Husband (misspelled "Husbands" in text), Robert Philson, George Wiscarver, and George Lucas. Several others, imprisoned on various dates included John Mitchell, John Cresswel, William Bonham, James Brown "Alias Sadler", Henry Cuzzins and Thomas Hill, the last three were "Committed 12 Dec 1794 by Judge Peters for Piracy". All of these men would ultimately be released for want of evidence. An incredible piece of documentation from the first serious test of federal authority under the recently ratified constitution. Richard Peters, Jr. (1744-1828) was a militia captain in the American Revolution, a Pennsylvania delegate to the Continental Congress, as well as a federal district judge and state senator. Usual folds, a few minor marginal fold splits, else near fine. Ex. Henry E. Luhrs Collection.
