This article from the Hampshire Gazette reported on the locations and numbers of the Government Militia and the Regulators who opposed them. Printed the day before the encounter at the United States Arsenal in Springfield, the writer informed readers "it is highly probable, events of importance speedily take place." William Butler began publication of the Hampshire Gazette on September 6, 1786, in Northampton, Massachusetts. Established to provide on-the-spot information about the unrest in the western Massachusetts counties, the paper generally was pro-government in tone.
