George Washington's largest military exercise was actually carried out while he was President, personally putting down the “Whiskey Rebellion” in Pennsylvania.
That just pushed all the Irish down to the South.
And -— Washington then opened his OWN Whiskey still!
Not putting down Washington, just telling you that God uses all types of people, to do His work, and you should avoid being so sanctimonious.
As far as my LOGICAL POINT was concerned, I believe that Jefferson said some even more “radical” things about the justification for a people to use violence, against a tyrannical government, did he not?
The Whiskey Rebellion pushed the Irish down to the South? Have never read that, though I'd think Irish immigrants involved as well as men from other European countries, especially Quakers, who were and are not known to have a substantial number of Irish in their ranks.
I am glad you brought up this incident, in which Thomas J's nemesis, Alex. Hamilton inspired.
And, nothing at all 'sanctimonious' about my prev. post, just relating facts.
