Storyboard Text

  • Oh boy, I sure do love having this farm!
  • yeah
  • THE MONEY WAS WORTHLESS!?!?!?!?! AAAAAAAAAAA
  • Hand over your land.
  • I AM...DANIEL SHAY.
  • Hey... I'm just a judge trying to get in...
  • BOOOO!!!! YOU CANT GO IN!!!! NO!!AAARRGGGG BOOOO
  • Farmers decided to go home after the American Revolution so they could use the money from the war to pay for their land.
  • No.
  • Alright, pack it up. We won't punish you if you just stop.
  • It turns out though that the money given to them by the government was worthless. The farmers were arrested and their land was taken away.
  • AAAAARRRGGG!!! We're going to fight
  • The farmers decided to protest about it. They tried negotiating with the government; they wrote a list of complaints and reforms. The farmers also blocked the courthouse so judges could not enter. The farmers were lead by Daniel Shay.
  • So that did not work out.
  • Let's think of a way to prevent this from happening!
  • The government told them to stop, but the farmers did not listen.
  • Shay's army went and found the place where weapons were kept so that they could fight the army. They fought, but then Shay's army retreated in fear of being caught.
  • The protesters did not ever get punished, and it showed how weak the Articles of Confederation were weak, since they could not have a national court and neither could they form a federal army. So they wanted to make a new better government.
