Storyboard Text

  • I want the Florida Territory
  • Ok Mr. President we will ask the Spanish for it.
  • Would you sell Florida to us?
  • NO!
  • Okay, go to Florida to try and convince them.
  • They won't sell it.
  • The United States wanted to own Florida but it was already owned by the Spanish so they went to ask them for it.
  • The Spanish refused to give the Florida territory to the United States.
  • Jackson was asked to go to Florida and try and convince them to sell the territory to the U.S.
  • We are willing to give America Western Florida.
  • Jackson took his men and raided western Florida. They arrested and killed many Spanish people living there.
  • When Jackson and his men returned, everyone was mad at them because they thought their actions were unnecessary and that they should be punished.
  • The raid made the Spanish realize how strong the U.S. government was so when the U.S. asked again the sold it to them for 5 million dollars and the Texas territory.
