The importance of Shays's Rebellion has never been fully appreciated, chiefly because Shays and his followers have always been viewed as a small group of poor farmers and debtors protesting local civil authority. In Shays's Rebellion: The American Revolution's Final Battle, Leonard Richards reveals that this perception is misleading, that the rebellion was much more widespread than previously thought, and that the participants and their supporters actually represented whole communities - the wealthy and the poor, the influential and the weak, even members of some of the best Massachusetts families.
The book is published by University of Pennsylvania Press.

The book contained good information and I captured the details I was looking for. The topic seemed to jump around a bit too much, so this book requires the listener to be attentive.
There's more to the book than simply the rebellion, as the author details how the rebellion actually helped rid us of the Articles of Confederation.
