Storyboard Text

  • Ally Into Adversary: The American Revolution (1763-1776) Created by Ethan Wang
  • Former Friends Turned Enemies
  • George (Loyalist)
  • John (Patriot)
  • Good day John, you appear to be packing your belongings. Are you perhaps moving?
  • You can't do that! King George's proclamation prohibits settlement west of the Appalachians!
  • To hell with the King's proclamation! The British owe us the land. I'm crossing that border.
  • 1763: The Proclamation
  • Aye, I'm heading across the Appalachians. Lots of French ground rip for the taking.
  • Watch your mouth John, we are faithful subjects to King George himself. And besides, we owe the British after the war with the French and Indians.
  • I suppose you're right George...but any more of these taxing nonsense and I'll have it with the King himself!
  • Hello again John, you pay your share of the sugar tax yet?
  • 1764: The Sugar Act
  • I think it's bloody ridiculous that they can just raise our taxes on sugar. They have no right in doing so!
  • King George has more than enough right to tax us. The taxes help those in Britain.
  • 1765: The Stamp Act
  • Help those in Britain?! Why should we be forced to help them? They're the ones who brought their war with the French to us.
  • George, have you heard?! The king has imposed another one of his bloody taxes, this time on all printed documents!
  • No we shall not! To do so would be to commit treason against the king and as his loyal subject, it is my duty to stop anyone who would threaten him.
  • How can you put up with this madness, George?! The king and his acts are getting out of hand. And just look at the increase of British soldiers just behind us!
  • 1765: The Mutiny Act
  • Another damn act! This time letting British troops into our own homes! We must do something to stop this tyranny!
  • Well that's good I say! Why would you want to trade with the French and Dutch in the first place? We owe our business to the motherland.
  • I refuse to tolerate this any further. The next time I see an assembly of British troops, I swear that I will teach them a lesson!
  • 1767: The Townshend Acts
  • Now the king is stopping us from trading with other nations by raising foreign taxes in the Townshend Acts! He is forcing us to buy British products!
