What did masssachusetts farmers rebel against their state legislature?

Following the War of Independence, the farmers in Massachusetts were left dispossessed of their land and bankrupt. In 1786, Daniel Shays sought help from the state legislature to ease the burden of the farmers. He and his fellow farmers were hoping for relief as instituted in other states. The current legislature refused to help and the Federal Government could not help because the governing document at the time was "The Articles of Confederation" which gave no power for the Federal Government to intercede. Shays had over 1,100 farmers who joined in. The Shay's Rebellion was about blocking court from sitting to hear the cases of farmers ready to lose their land. The rebellion became violent and the Governor of Massachusetts, James Bowdoin, sent in the militia. The rebellion had ended but the voices were heard as Massachusetts elected a new legislature who enacted relief programs for the indebtors.
