    What did the government of Massachusetts want to do with this tax?

  • Social Studies -

    The financial situation leading to the rebellion included the problem that European war investors (among others) demanded payment in gold and silver; there was not enough specie in the states, including Massachusetts, to pay the debts; and through the state, wealthy urban businessmen were trying to squeeze whatever assets they could get out of rural smallholders. Since the smallholders did not have the gold that the creditors demanded, everything they had was confiscated, including their houses.

    I don't see any way that a small farmer would favor this tax.

    My teacher said that some people did favor the taxes. The people living near the eastern parts of Massachussets. I just want to know the reasons why.

    Perhaps the wealthier people favored the taxes because they didn't want the state to be in debt. They were also likely to be those who had loaned the money in the first place.
