*Remembering Ebenezer Mudgett

Editor’s note:  Before the Whiskey Rebellion in western Pennsylvania, in 1794.  Before Shay’s Rebellion in Massachusetts, in 1786-1787.  Before the Boston Tea Party in Boston Harbor on December 16, 1773.  Before all three, there was the Pine Tree Riot in New Hampshire, in February, 1772.  Ebenezer Mudgett was one of its key instigators.  One of the earliest conflicts in the struggle for American independence from Great Britain concerned free use of New Hampshire’s native forests.  This account is borrowed from Steven Laurence Danver’s book, Revolts, Protests, Demonstrations, and Rebellions in American History (vol. 1).
