“Waiting to Rebel”
by Mary Beth Aiello.(2) A BetterPhoto Members Favorite!
Taken shortly before the reenactment of the 1794 Whiskey Rebellion. Angered by an excise tax imposed on whiskey, farmers in Western Pennsylvania launched a series of attacks on excise agents. The tariff was ultimately eliminated. This photo was intentionally cropped to add contrast to this actor's relaxed moment before confrontation. Category -- People.
