Hamilton led the men -Washington gave up midway & went back home- Hamilton's whiskey tax was particularly hated in the back-country because whisky production and distilling were widespread; whiskey was often used as a money, being easier to carry than a lot of corn!Hamilton knew he could pick on these farmers. His capture & ill-treatment of these old Revolutionary War vets was despicable!
