A functioning system of representative government is not a birthright but a daily struggle to maintain. We highlight four examples in American history that deeply affected the course of America and/or threatened the viability of representative government:

  • The Newburgh Incident
  • Shays Rebellion
  • The 1798 Alien & Sedition Acts
  • Flirtation with Dictatorship: Abraham Lincoln and Jefferson Davis

Mark Albertson is the historical research editor at Army Aviation magazine in Monroe, CT and the historian for the Army Aviation Association of America.  He has authored several books and, as an avid speaker, travels Connecticut and New York State lecturing on a variety of topics pertaining to history, politics and current events.
