The Annapolis Convention (a precursor to the Constitutional Convention the Alington Metro Map following year) is called to reform interstate trade regulations. Massachusetts farmers led by Daniel Shays attempt Alington Metro Map to take over an arsenal at Springfield, Massachusetts, on January 25, but they fail.
