Modern Chivalry: Containing the Adventures of Captain John Farrago and Teague O'Regan, His servant is a rambling, satirical American novel by Hugh Henry Brackenridge, a Pittsburgh writer, lawyer, judge, and justice of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. The book was first published in 1792. The hero, Captain John Farrago, is a frontier Don Quixote who leaves on a whim his Western Pennsylvania farm to "ride about the world a little, with his man Teague at his heels, to see how things were going on here and there, and to observe human nature". The book is arguably the first important work of fiction about the American frontier and called "to the West what Don Quixote was to Europe". It first appeared in 1792 in two parts, and the third and fourth sections of the book appeared in 1793 and 1797, and a revision in 1805, with a final addition in 1815. Henry Adams called it "a more thoroughly American book than any written before 1833."

During the presidency of George Washington, Congress passed an excise tax on the sale of whiskey. The new tax greatly angered farmers living on the Pennsylvania frontier west of the Appalachians. Because they often distilled their grain into whiskey for easier transport over mountain roads, the western farmers believed they were being unfairly targeted. Protests against the tax soon transformed into an armed uprising. This account of the conflicts between the federal government and the insurgents of the Whiskey Rebellion greatly favors the the cause of the insurrectionists
