Dear student 
Shays' Rebellion in 1786 is significant because it raised doubts about the ability of a decentral ized government to deal with civil unrest. It made the elites realize that the states had too much power and the central government didn't have enough power which led to revisions of the articles of confederation which led to the Constitution.
