Storyboard Text

  • The Government Is Corrupt 
  • Burning Of The Papers
  • Accused
  • John makes and publishes news papers in which he states that the government  is corrupt.
  • Hamilton's defense 
  • john gets arrested and all of the papers got burned because the government did not like seeing what John was writing.  
  • Jury's discussion 
  • They threw me and jail because I offended the government! I am waiting to go to court. 
  • Life with the first amendment 
  • Hamilton stood up for John and said that people needed a right to say and write whatever they wanted. That whatever they say must have a reasoning behind why they wrote it or said it.
  • Hamilton won the hearts of the jury and john was set free. Later on it became one of the bill of rights that we had a freedom of speech and freedom of the press which changed the present day forever 
  • I believe that life with the 1st amendment is a lot better than life without the 1st amendment I believe that if we didn't have the right to the press or the right to speak freely it would be a very scary place there would be fights and many more laws broken. I feel that freedom of speech/press is very important to everyone.
