A Little Rebellion Now and Then: The History of Shay’s Rebellion. Shays Rebellion is viewed as an agrarian revolt pitting impoverished farmers in western Massachusetts against the wealthy merchant class of the coastal eastern part of the State. Hear an account of the participants and events of this post-revolutionary uprising that both confirm and negate this long-held perception. The Bidwell House Museum History Talks are held at the Tyringham Union Church, Main Road, Tyringham. Please note that this talk begins at 10:00 a.m. Suggested donation $15 per person, $10 for members of the museum.
