Storyboard Text

  • So basically the British at first came to India without the interest of colonizing it (at first). The were mainly trading and such.
  • We have stuff! We will trade for other stuff!
  • Although now the British were gaining interest, the French were beginning to also trade with India. India also had the exact resources the British needed, such cotton and opium. It was a "might as well!" situation.
  • Indirect rule! We've done it so much I thought it would be obvious John seriously get your head in the game...
  • But how??
  • We need parts of India! We can't let the French get to them first.
  • A big part of the colonization of India was the East Indian Trading Company. They had political and power of trade all over the east side of India after the Mughals' previous rule began to diminish.
  • We have stuff, to TRADE!!
  • Then Britain began controlling the people, they began making their move for further conquest of India, but the people got angry.
  • Yeah but we need cotton though!
  • We don't need to be growing cotton, we need food!
  • They did not want to change religions, or go by the way the British imposed on them, forcing their "ideal" way of living and their systems. They treated the people badly, and now they were only allowed to trade w/ the British.
  • You've overstepped your bounds, you need to leave!
  • Oh dang, this did not work out as planned...
  • Basically, the Indians (sepoys) rebelled after being treated badly for so long, and they began attacking the English settlers. The East India Trading Company was wrecked and the British were forced to leave.
