Storyboard Text

  • This is my family we live in Virginia. We moved here because we wanted religious freedom. My name is Claire Marie Rose I am 14 years old. My moms name is Kathren, Dads name is Rick and my baby sisters name is Casandra. My dad is going to be leaving soon because he is going to help with the westward expansion. 
  • 
  • The next day- dad leaving 
  • 
  • This is so not fair dad is going to be leaving soon to help with the westward expansion and im stuck here.
  • Bye love you see you soon be safe.
  • I can't believe that your leaving again Claire is not going to like that she has to stay here.
  • I know but I will only be gone for a little while don't worry.
  • Claire's dad was leaving that day and she did not want to be stuck at the house so she got an idea that she would hide in the back of her dads wagon. But little did she know about what was going to happen next!
  • 
  • Claire and her father have been on the road for 3 days. There was barely any food and water. But Claire's father still did not know that Claire was in the wagon. They kept on going and they saw some people up ahead. As they got closer to the people Claire figured out why her father was part of the Westward Expansion. It was so that he could clear all of the Indians out of the area. Claire did not like that her father would do something like that so she stood up and told her father that it was not right to kick the Indians out of there own land. But her dad said that he had to so this is what Claire said next.
  • 
  • 
  • Well if you are getting kicked out of your own land then where ever  they kick you over to I will come with you
  • 
  • As Claire walked through the woods she saw a group of Indians. So she went up to them and apologized for her dad trying to kick them out of their own area. They said that it was fine and that it has been going on for a while now. Clair came up with an idea and this is what she said.
  • 
  • 
  • So Claire went down to Mississippi with the Indians and lived a happy life and she was happy that she moved west and grew up.
  • So that is what Claire did she got out of the wagon and started to walk home. She was so disappointed with her dad she did not even turn around to say good bye.
  • 
  • I never thought of you as a person who dose not except people for who they are or what there skin color is. I'm not staying in this cart I will find my own way home.
  • So the Indians said that it was okay if she came along. So that is just what Claire did.
