Storyboard Text

  • But we need the money
  • I hope I don't loose a hand today...
  • I hate working in there. Its so dirty with no fresh air.
  • Please Sir, I can cook, clean, and sew. I have children who need to be fed. Please give me the job.
  • I'd rather have an Irish work for me than you.
  • The urbanization in the North was caused by the many immigrants that came to the United States in search for jobs. They made lumber for ships, furs, textiles, and stoves.
  • I plant tobbaco and cotton but the money comes from the cotton.
  • Life for immigrants were really hard as they worked in factories that were not made to keep the workers safe. Many children from the age of 7 would work and many times the workers would get injured.
  • We work hard all day and can't stop or we'll be whipped.
  • Although, African Americans were free, they were not treated equally and were often discriminated. Life was tough and finding a job would be hard and they would often have to find another way to survive.
  • Please, sir as a free man I can't travel because white men think I'm a runaway.
  • Here is our petition.
  • I will see what I can do about that...
  • In the South, there were many farmers and plantation owners and they made money off cash crops which were crops grown to be sold for money.
  • Life as an African American slave was hard as they did all the heavy labor and were often worked to the death. They were treated as "things" and as "valued property".
  • For the free African American in the south, many of them would be sold back into slavery and they would have a hard finding a job or going to public school. They couldn't vote or serve in juries.
