1786 · Shays' Rebellion

Caused by war veteran Daniel Shays, Shays' Rebellion was to protest economic and civil rights injustices that he and other farmers were seeing after the Revolutionary War. Because of the Rebellion it opened the eyes of the governing officials that the Articles of Confederation needed a reform. The Rebellion served as a guardrail when helping reform the United States Constitution.

English: pejorative derivative of the Middle English personal name Pack .

Probably also an Americanized form of German Packert, Päckert, from ancient Germanic personal names formed with a word meaning ‘battle’ or ‘to fight’; or a variant of Packer 2 (with excrescent -t).
