Storyboard Text

  • The Abolishment of the Articles by: Casey Dow and Calvin Chen | Period 5
  • Starring: George Washington and Alexander Hamilton
  • With the recent Articles of Confederation, citizens is going broke! 
  • Printing paper money isn't helping us out of our war debt! All it's doing is causing massive inflation!
  • The government can't tax, but other states are taxing imported goods from state to state!
  • These tariffs within the other states are causing wars, but also the government is going broke!
  • Meanwhile, at the New Jersey and Pennsylvania border...
  • Here in Pennsylvania, there's a tariff for all exported goods.
  • Why do your goods cost so much more to buy than in our state?
  • Back with Washington and Hamilton...
  • It's a problem... other countries don't want to trade with us because we are all split up into independent states!
  • I am becoming more and more worried because of the recent rebellion done by Daniel Shays.
  • It was a dire situation- the militia was needed to put the rebels down. We may need an amendment to the Articles.
  • I feel that we need a stronger central government that can save the states from this financial wasteland.
