About this artifact

George Richards Minot's The History of the Insurrections in Massachusetts in the year seventeen hundred and eighty six and the Rebellion is the earliest published account of Shays' Rebellion, appearing in 1788 (the example shown here is an edition of 1810.) Although he expressed some sympathy for the economic plight of the Regulators, Minot was adamantly pro-government. In the same year his book came out, Minot served as the secretary of the Massachusetts ratifying convention.
