The court in Springfield was scheduled to open on December 26, 1786. In the morning, a large number of armed Regulators assembled with the purpose of preventing the justices from entering the court and doing business. A committee of Regulators approached the justices to ask that the Court give written assurance that it would not open the court this term, but to act "As though no such Court had been appointed." William Butler began publication of the Hampshire Gazette on September 6, 1786, in Northampton, Massachusetts. The mission of the newspaper was to inform the public about the issues pertaining to the ongoing conflicts. Butler was decidedly on the government side of the issues.
