The Whiskey Rebellion: George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, and the Frontier Rebels Who Challenged America's Newfound Sovereignty
Anno Nomius's review

interesting book. Gives you a glimpse of why the whiskey tax was levied to pay for the American war of independence and what a big mistake it was to do that. In general history has not been kind to anyone trying to take away a man or a woman's drink. The prohibition in the 20s which though had a different foundation, based on morality did not last too long. The book also gives a glimpse of many interesting characters and I found Herman Husband the most intriguing. Good book. Read it.
