Storyboard Text

  • I'M WATCHING YOU!
  • Ending slavery IMMEDIATELY? That's a new idea.
  • Maybe he has a point...
  • GARRISON
  • BUY THE LIBERATOR NOW!!
  • PRINT HERE
  • SLAVES ARE SUFFERING. ITS A SIN TO OWN PEOPLE. END IT NOW, DON'T WAIT!
  • Are we free yet, Dad??
  • Come quickly, I think I heard something!!
  • No, son not yet. We are only in Tennessee, we have a long way to go.
  • My name is Samuel and I am a slave in South Carolina. I am 15 years old, I have been removed and placed into more than three plantations and I have no family. I have tried to escape many times to find my parents, but I have had no luck. On the bright side, I have heard of the whites in the North wanting to take a stand for me and my people.
  • Compromise of 1850
  • This basically says that the new territories obtained from the war would now be determined a slave state or not by the people's votes. California is a free state though, so this makes the North happy.
  • The rumors are going around that people in the North want to end slavery. A man names William Lloyd Garrison, who began his own newspaper, The Liberator, has been telling everyone about how bad our lives are as slaves. He is also calling for an immediate action to end slavery!
  • REPUBLICANS WIN THE ELECTION
  • I also hear that there is now a more secure route to the North. This "railroad" leads you through safe houses all the way up to Canada. The abolitionist are pissing off whites, so now the only place we can be truly free is in Canada.
  • Im now starting to hear that since the Mexican War is over, the US has won some land and the South and North are trying to gain the state for their own good. I'll bet everyone is going to start moving there to sway the votes.
  • Just like I expected, everyone is rushing over to the new territories so they can elect the states as free or not. Now, there is a bloody fight going on and the papers are calling it "Bleeding Kansas." Plus, a man named John Brown is waned by the police, they say he's the main one doing all the fighting.
  • Ten years have passed since the last scary event. It is now election year and Abraham Lincoln is in the running. Many Southerners are fearful of what might happen if the Democrats loose, their way of life will change. But I don't know what will happen to me..
