EXPERIENCE
1770's AMERICAN LIFE
An Enjoyable Event For Everyone
 
A celebration of early American history is brought to life each year in Washington County, Pennsylvania as local residents come together to hear the stories and witness life as it was in the early American frontier in the 1700's. The Whiskey Rebellion was at the epicenter of some important moments in American history during this time. Not only were settlers moving westward, developing new homesteads within Indian controlled territory, but the United States government was also learning how to govern.

Washington Pennsylvania was an important early junction point in this early America push westward in the 1770's. There were many conflicts as settlers struggled to get homes built and families situated, while Washington and Hamilton and their men, tried to enforce very unpopular new tax laws.

ON THE RIGHT are some of the SUPPORTERS we interviewed this year to give them a chance to bring their voice to the goals of the community.

What you will discover with each MY STORY supporter video is an unscripted perspective outlining one person's experiences and opinions. These collective voices of the people that all helped make this possible are part of the 2017 Whiskey Rebellion Festival story. Maybe the most important part.

Without these supporters this festival would not occur. They bring belief in the value of both history and this event, donation of time and money, and the common goal of helping the community grow. By giving the community a chance to spend time together with a smile on their face, people learn about the history of our country, their own heritage, and each other.
