They used to do a Whiskey Rebellion commemoration in Berlin, PA (Somerset County), but after a few years it kind of fizzled out. My grandparents are members of the Berlin Historical Society and I remember them sending me newsletter articles about the event. I’d have to agree, that’s not the most impressive artillery they could have had. Great photo though.
Yeah, the guy snapped the picture at just the right moment. I wonder where he got that wee little cannon?
What the hell, it was a little rebellion.
