Storyboard Text

  • Continental Soldiers Pay
  • I got a certificate for being in the military.
  • Massachusetts Debt
  • My taxes went up. I can't afford them!!!
  • North Hampton, August 29th
  • Give us our land back!!!
  • The soldiers got paid with certificates, but most eventually sold them. I would agree with this because they probably made money off of them.
  • September 25th-28th
  • (yelling) (rebelling)
  • The Massachusetts Legislature raised taxes to pay off debt. The farmers were shocked and they had to foreclose because they couldn't pay the taxes.
  • Shay's New Plan
  • Attacckkk!
  • Farmers closed the courts, bringing all forecloses to a halt. What caused this is farmers losing their land.
  • Massachusetts Centinel's Observation
  • I am now the president in the new federal government!
  • Shays and his men occupied the Springfield courthouse. This would lead to democratic mobs destroying orderly government.
  • Shay's new plan was a surprise attack. He needed a new plan when he realized he was going up against a militia. The results were the defenders fired directly at the ranks.
  • It's a surprise attack!!
  • The sentinel observed that bringing the federal government into existence much earlier should have been considered. I agree with this because once they are up, they can deal with the problems the states face.
