Storyboard Text

  • The Americans wrote this. It's titled the "Declaration of Independence". It appears so say what they are angry about.
  • Those colonies prove to be such an annoyance! They will never receive independence.
  • One year later; after the Americans become independent
  •    Now that we are independent, we should plan a government!
  • Well the states pretty much already have their own plans for government.
  • Well I believe they need guidance. Let us keep the power of a national government very limited.
  • Perfect! Let us limit the power of the national government to wars, treaties, units of measurements, and mail! Let us call it the "Articles of Confederation".
  • 16 months after the articles were ratified
  • We cannot tax the states so we cannot pay for the wars! What are we going to do?
  • Did you hear about the rebellion? We NEED a stronger national government!
  • Everyone make sure the windows are shut! We cannot let anyone know about this!
  • We should base representation on population!
  • What about those of us in smaller states? We need equal representation across the board so us smaller states get a chance.
  • How about both! We give two representatives to each state to one house, and more based on population in another. A bicameral legistlature!
