Storyboard Text

  • paper certificate
  • How Soldiers were Paid
  • are you gonna keep your certificate?
  • No, I need the money now, so I'm gonna sell it.
  • Massachusetts Debt
  • We need to raise taxes to pay off debt.
  • How about we make them pay it in hard cash too.
  • August 29th
  • We are armed and here to close down the courts.
  • This is a soldier getting a certificate. The soldier talks to another solder and asks if he is keeping his certificate. I disagree with paying them this way because they should get their money from serving so they won't go in debt.
  • September 25-28th
  • We are occupying the courthouse so so the Supreme Judicial Court cannot sit here.
  • This is the Massachusetts legislator talking about raising taxes, so they can pay off their debt. The farmers were shocked when creditors foreclosed on their property.
  • The New Plan
  • I have a new plan men, we are going to plan a surprise attack on overrun the new federal arsenal at Springfield.
  • This is a picture of farmers closing down the courts. The farmers did this because if the courts were closed their property could not be foreclosed.
  • Observing rebellions
  • I have observed rebellions, and can say they are the reason for The Constitution.
  • 600 farmers occupied the courthouse so the Supreme Judicial Court couldn't sit there. It made people worry the government would be destroyed bu a democratic mob.
  • They had a plan to have a surprise attack at Springfield. They needed this new plan because they realized they were going against an organized militia. There plan did not work.
  • The Massachusetts Centinel observed the rebellion of the farmers. His statement means that the farmers rebellion is the reason for the Constitution. I agree because if the farmers didn't rebel than when would the Constitution have been created.
