Storyboard Text

  • In The U.S.A...
  • The Spanish are keeping control of Cuba! How can we get them to leave so that WE can colonize it?
  • We must act quickly! Who knows what our Southern neighbors are planning!
  • Meanwhile, In Cuba...
  • You know, I really wish the Spanish would leave our Island.
  • (Note: I couldn't find a proper picture of a ship, so I just made one with pre-set pictures)
  • They don't exactly contribute much... (Besides Disease, Ugh.)
  • ?
  • ...
  • Speaking of the U.S... is it just me or is that American ship...on fire?
  • At this point, I'm almost HOPING for the U.S.A. to intervene...
  • Back in the U.S.A...
  • Hey, Why don't we declare war on them? We can pretend to want to give Cubans Democracy...
  • [ April 21, 1898 ]
  • ...While we actually loot them of all their resources! You're brilliant, John!
  • Back in Cuba (Again...)
  • Oh my god, the ship exploded!
  • .
  • Back in the U.S.A. (Again...)
  • What's that!? The U.S.S. Maine exploded?! It must have been the Spanish!
  • The nerve of them! Come now, John, we must publicly declare war on them!
  • But what can we declare war on them for...?
  • Oh well, at least there weren't any Spanish Ships nearby, or else they would declare war.
