And right after the War for Independence, with evenly-matched arms:
The Whiskey Rebellion (western Pennsylvania)
Location: western Pennsylvania
Farmers and others who refused to pay an excise tax, vs. the US government
500 armed men vs. 13,000 militia provided by the governors of Virginia, Maryland, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, headed by President Washington.
The rebels all went home.
