“Mr. Baldwin has recounted the incidents of th [whiskey] rebellion with spirit and color and has painted an especially good portrait of that extrordinary figure Hugh Henry Brackenridge.”—Saturday Review

“Here is an investigation of one of the more obscure chapters of our history which not only dissipates all obscurity but at the same time tells a lively story … comprehensive, scholarly and spirited. It is informed with an understanding of the social psychology of the people and the region described, illuminated by a broad presentation of the whole historical background and presented with vigor and not without humor.”—New York Herald Tribune
