Storyboard Text

  • Sir, you should make slaves legal in the new country. 
  • In this drawing, a local slave owner is asking Thomas if he can make slaves legal in the Declaration of Indeendence for the new country, but Thomas knows better. At this time the north and south were divided. The south pro slaves, and the North against slaves.   This was a major conflict from the time period and Thomas knew that if he even touched on the subject not only would it cause an uprising, but it would cause a major conflict with Congress. It may have even  stopped Congress from passing the Declaration of Independence 
  • In the Declaration, you need to decreese taxes! 
  • During this time Taxes were a major problem. The citizen was protesting the British taxes in extreme ways, like the Boston tea party! The citizens got aboard a British ship and dumped over 92,000 pounds of tea into the Boston harbor because of the British raised taxes on tea. This event occurs during the night of December 16, 1773. 
  • Sir, you should add to the new Declaration tht Britian should pay for the damage that was done during the revolutionary war. 
  • After the American revolution, there were lots of fees and a lot of money to pay for the damage and Brittan wanted the united states to ay for thy damage, but it was said that Britain should pay for the damage. this was an ongoing fight and may requested for this to be put into our declaration of independence.
