Storyboard Text

  • England, 1763
  • Quite so, Prime Minister Grenville.
  • Those darn colonists! Pulling their homeland into a silly war with the French and the Indians... they're going to repay the massive debt they've put us in!! But how?
  • One year later...
  • Right-o!
  • A sugar tax shall be mandated under the... Sugar Act! Proof of paying the paper tax will have to be made with a stamp... it shall be called the Stamp Act!
  • I've got it! I shall tax the goods they buy the most! They're still British over there... surely they won't mind financing their own nation. Everyone buys sugar and paper products. I'll start there!
  • Two years later...
  • We had to repeal the Stamp Act! PM Grenville's replacement and my new government's leader have failed me! Chancellor, what now?
  • Simply smashing! Let's tax it all.
  • Keep taxing paper! Add a glass tax! Lead tax! Paint! Tea! And let's end all that unpatriotic smuggling the colonists do!
  • Three years later, in the colonies...
  • First they force taxes us, then they massacre us! The Sons of Liberty won't stand for this!
  • We had to defend ourselves!
  • Meanwhile, back in England...
  • By jove! Townshend's passed on... Parliament will have to govern now!
  • These colonists just keep causing more problems! It's like they're not even British anymore!
  • Three years later...
  • I daresay!
  • The British East India Company is close to bankruptcy! From now on, it won't have to pay taxes in the colonies. It's tea will be the cheapest on the market! American tea merchants will just have to sell something else.
