Storyboard Text

  • Pay for American Revolution veterans
  • So now the government thinks that my services are worth a piece of paper?!
  • Massachusetts Debt
  • Sold
  • I don't have anything anymore!!! I think I'm going to start a rebellion.
  • August 29th in Northampton
  • Let's close it down!
  • American Revolution veterans were paid for their services by receiving a little slip of paper that most of them sold because they needed money. I don't agree with this because they should have been payed in respect and probably enough money to live on.
  • September 25th-28th
  • I can't believe all 600 of us fit in here.- -I know right.
  • The Massachusetts Legislator raised taxes and since most farmers already could barely pay their taxes, they couldn't pay the increased ones and they became broke and landless. They were shocked because they were use to long-term payment and they now had to mortgage their land.
  • Shays' new plan
  • Surpri... Oh shoot
  • On August 29th, an armed group of armed soldiers closed the Hampshire County Court of Common Pleas in Northampton. This brought all foreclosures to a stop.
  • The editor of the Massachusetts Centinel's Observation
  • I just now realized that the "late insurrections in the Commonwealth must be considered as the cause of bringing the federal government into existence, at a much earlier period than would otherwise have been."
  • From September 25th- 28th Shays' 600 men occupied the Springfield Courthouse and they prevented the Supreme Judicial Court from sitting there.
  • Shays had a new plan now that the congress had sent 4,400 troops to protect the courts. His new plan was to perform a surprise attack on the troops and hopefully they would win. Well it just so turns out that instead of falling back and pausing the troops fired strait into Shays' men and killed 4 and injured 20 more.
  • The editor of the Massachusetts Centinel's observed that the "late insurrections in the Commonwealth must be considered as the cause of bringing the federal government into existence, at a much earlier period than would otherwise have been."
