Storyboard Text

  • All of this was taking place during the French Revolution
  • Britain and France were at war with each other and the US was stuck in the middle - suffering consequences as a result of neutrality
  • International Tensions
  • Sorry, sir, but the French don't take kindly to anyone who complies with your system!
  • Impressment - legal kidnapping - was used by the British to search ships and capture deserters.
  • We require a license for you to travel these waters. Also, I believe a British deserter joined your crew.
  • We've only got only one option - war.  The Embargo Act failed so I'm introducing the Non-intercourse Act. We will not trade with either France or Britain until either agrees to make peace with us.
  • James Madison was elected president and imposed the Non-Intercourse act and Macon's Bill, both actions made out of anger directed towards France and Britain.
  • This new act imposed by the US is taking its toll. I have made the decision to repeal restrictions on US trade.
  • -Napoleon Bonaparte
  • This is unacceptable! Unfortunately, my only option is to lift the restrictions on US trade so France won't gain leverage.
  • Yes, sir
