Storyboard Text

  • I am Mary Johnson, I'm from England and am 19 years old right now, around the year 1480, and this is the story about how I came to the United States.
  • So this is the year 1480 and there is a war going on right now. People are calling it the "War of the Roses" because of the symbol that the two houses use. The houses are "York", the white Rose, and "Lancaster", the red rose. I am leaving this place with the hope that I will live and have a better life over at the United States, a life where I don't have to worry about being killed in a war.
  • First I traveled by boat, the stuff I brought with me were: some clothes, my puppy, and a necklace that my friends gave me as a farewell and good luck gift.
  • While we were on our way to the U.S. we did face some problems. First it was transportation, for some of them you needed to have some type of papers and for others you didn't. We took a boat and a train. People would also look at us weird as well. Then we had a bit of money problems but I helped out the people by doing odd jobs and that was fixed. It took us more than 6 months to make this trip.
  • Yes! We finally made it! I entered the U.S. through New York and had to sign a lot of paper work but I finally got to the U.S.
  • So we decided to settle in a town called Addison, in PA. It's really fun living here. Of course, there are some problems as well. Most people ignore me because I am "different" and I aslo don't know theenglish they use over here. I am learning though, it is kind of hard.
