Local historian Dereka Smith of the Whately Historical Society and Cher Nicholas, president of the Hatfield Historical Society, will share their extensive research into the agrarian rebellion of 1786-87 that came to weigh so heavily on the minds of the Founders as they crafted our Constitution. You may have heard other talks on Shay's Rebellion in the past, but you won't have heard this new research on the roles of the Hatfield and Whately participants. Who were the Hatfield and Whately men who threw in with the rebels, and what were the repercussions?
