Excise Tax (A tax on things)


In 1791 Alexander Hamilton introduced a tax on whiskey to pay the debt incurred during the revolutionary war.  In 1794 George Washington led a force of 12,000 militiamen to quash "The Whiskey Rebellion" by 400 Pennsylvania farmers protesting the tax.  (He wasn't taking any chances!)
