Storyboard Text

  • I certainly believe so, it would gain our country even stronger we have to tell the president Mckinley to enforce the Monroe Doctrine
  • My fellow friend, don't you think it would be great for Cuba to be part of our territory? We could probably grow even more trade to make our economic stronger. 
  • It's late 1800's and Americans discussing about the benefit of having Cuba part of their territory. 
  • Enough is enough! We shall break free!!
  • We are ready for war!
  • It's 1895 ,The Cubans had been tired of being in control by Spain so they wanted war to break free.  
  • Hurry up soilder, make sure they are provided little water and that they sleep on the floor.
  • Hurry up! Let's move it go inside!
  • The easiest solution for the Spanish leaders to avoid war was to mistreat the Cubans, putting them in concentration camps.
  • Please don't, don't take us
  • Quickly the news of the mistreatment of the Cubans spread over to the Americans. A journalist named William Hearst wrote about the situation, which created Yellow Journalism because of the false rumors. There was competition with other journalist too.   
  • I can't believe the Cubans are in camps. I shall name it "Many Deaths Alert!"
  • Enough! My story will be much more intresting than you, you will see the Americans will love it! 
  • The yellow journalists did convince Americans to feel sympathy for the Cubans, so president Mckinley sent a battleship called Maine but suddenly the ship had exploded and journalists blamed Spain for explosion.
  • Everyone will know it was the Spanish, I'll name it "Maine was work of an enemy!"
  • Investigations were held to see what caused the explosion but the yellow journalists convinced the United States that the Spanish started thee explosion so the president started war, president Mickinley had confrimed it. Spain had lost the war and Cuba became independent.
  • United States will Win!!
  • Spain will win!!
