Enroute To The Whiskey Insurrection

The Whiskey Insurrection Took Place In Washington Co., Pennsylvania

My [John Pendleton Kennedy's] mother, Nancy Clayton Pendleton...was married at seventeen in Martinsburg in the house which she now owns and dwells in. My father brought her to Baltimore where she was greatly admired. The year of his marriage was that of the Whiskey Insurrection and my father was the lieutenant in command of a company of volunteers which marched under General Washington against the rebels.   Source
