Response to Sheeit'!!
It was a refusal to pay tax on the hooch that prompted the Whiskey Rebellion, not the simple manufacture. Same with today's moonshiners.
'twas legal to make it and give it away then as well as now. But to sell it without paying the taxes was then and still is a no-no!
The Southern reference was regarding secession.........not shine! Those boys were slow learners!
