Storyboard Text

  • How the Soldiers Got Paid
  • Massachusetts Debt
  • Let's just take their land to pay off the debt.
  • Yeah, that's a great idea.
  • August 29th in North Hampton
  • The soldiers loved Washington and didn't want them to be angry. So, he payed them with paper certificates. The soldiers thought they earned more . I disagree with what they did because they weren't worth very much.
  • September 25th - 28th
  • In the Massachusetts Debt they were taking the soldier's land while they were at war. They took their land and money to pay off debt. The farmers were mad because they had been at war and they come back and all their land is gone. They were shocked when they got back.
  • Shays' New Plan
  • We are going to surprise attack them.
  • Ok, I think that is a good plan.
  • Since all their land was gone they started a riot. They closed the Hampshire County Court of Common Pleas in Northampton. Then, other farmers shut down other courts in other towns. This started Shay's Rebellion.
  • The editor of the Massachusetts Centinel Observation
  • On September 25th - 28th Shay's band of 600 farmers most wearing Continental Army uniforms went to the Springfield courthouse and prevented the Supreme Judicial Court from sitting there.
  • Shay and his men decided on a new plan. They were going to surprise attack and overrun the new federal arsenal at Springfield. When they went they would get all the weapons they needed.
  • The editor of the Massachusetts Centinel Observation observed that the "late insurrections in the Commonwealth . . . must be considered as the cause of bringing into existence, at a much earlier period than would otherwise have been." I agree because the government the government should've done something.
