Age 1

The Whiskey Rebellion was a protest against taxes on whiskey by farmers and distillers. People were tarred and feathered. They attacked Bower Hill and headed towards Pittsburgh. The militia was sent in to try and stop it. It finally ended with a repeal of the tax.
1821 · Financial Relief for Public Land

Age 31

A United States law to provide financial relief for the purchasers of Public Lands. It permitted the earlier buyers, that couldn't pay completely for the land, to return the land back to the government. This granted them a credit towards the debt they had on land. Congress, also, extended credit to buyer for eight more years. Still while being in economic panic and the shortage of currency made by citizens, the government hoped that with the time extension, the economy would improve.
