Storyboard Text

  • Mom told me that I should be outside and enjoy God's creations.
  • You should be inside reading a book.
  • Why are you playing outside?
  • Mom told me that I should be outside and enjoy God's creations.
  • Dad told me I need to educate myself and be informed of the things happening around me.
  • Be outside living it.
  • Why are you inside reading a book? You should be outside enjoying God's creations.
  • In these scenes, the father represents the North and the mother represents the South.
  • The conversations between this family remind me of the causes of the Civil War.
  • The daughter also is speaking on behalf of the South and the son on behalf of the North.
  • In Civil War terms, the North is asking the South why they are outside and using slaves.
  • The South's argument is that the Bible, the word of God, allows them to have slaves.
  • The North then responds by telling the South to read a book, possibly Uncle Tom's Cabin.
  • In this scene, the South asks why the North is reading a book about anti-slavery.
  • The North says they are informing themselves of the misery of the Southern slaves.
  • The South responds by saying that the North should be outside living in the times.
  • The discussions including Uncle Tom's Cabin and the justification from the Bible,
  • were causes of the Civil War. Although they were all causes, 
  • along with things such as the Lincoln and Douglas debate and the Mason and Dixon dividing line, 
  • the primary cause was based upon the regional difference in rights, not individual states.
