Still, a fine copy of this rare account of the Whiskey Rebellion.

    "Findley was one of the most prominent men identified with the Whiskey Insurrection... Feeling... that the tax on whiskey was exorbitant and unjust, he encouraged open resistance to the government at first. Later... he counseled moderation... In 1796 he published [the above work], in which he attempted to vindicate his own position as well as to furnish an... apology for those who participated..." (DAB).
