Leonard L. Richards provides a clear picture of Shays's Rebellion, capturing the spirit of the insurgency, the reasons for the revolt, and its long-term impact on the participants, the state of Massachusetts, and the nation as a whole. Shays's Rebellion, though seemingly a local affair, was the revolution that gave rise to modern American democracy.
