1794 Whiskey Rebellion
10 South Hanover Street, Carlisle, PA 17013 GET DIRECTIONS

In 1794 President George Washington ordered several states to provide militiamen to put down the "Whiskey Rebellion," a violent resistance to a 25 percent tax on whiskey, which was occurring in western Pennsylvania. President Washington took command of the militia himself, which met in Pennsylvania at the Carlisle Barracks. In February Carlisle will honor this significant part of its history with a new restaurant called 1794 The Whiskey Rebellion. This restaurant will offer a simple menu with dishes such as Whiskey Shepherd's Pie, Classic Colonial Chicken Pot Pie, and more served in period cookware. This new restaurant will also offer various whiskies, bourbons, martinis, cocktails, and more.
