Storyboard Text

  • Enlistment is up in 4 days, I say we attack the Hessians while they're sleeping for supplies. 
  • Keep moving lads.
  • This is the scene where George Washington announces his idea to the other generals. This is important because after this meeting, the crossing of Delaware occurs and the battle against the Hessians begin.  The point of Washington's reason to attack is to give the army hope that they can win, gain supplies, and keep as many soldiers as he can possibly maintain.
  • Hold aim.
  • This picture represents the part of the movie when the Continental Army crosses the Delaware river. I included this because the timing and crossing of this river is what gave the battle against the Hessians its name, and was very crucial to the success of the army.
  • Sir he only has a few minutes left.
  • My men are good people, take our weapons, but please do not steal from them and destroy their honor. 
  • This depicts  the part of the movie, when some of the continental army soldiers invade the Hessians guardhouse.  I chose this as one of my significant scenes, because it's the first attack of the battle against them, the first killing that signifies that someone's going to be losing.
  • I want to hear drums as we march out.
  • He said...
  • This is the end of the battle in the movie, this was important, because right before the Hessians surrendered, Colonel Nall had just gotten shot to the point where it was fatal. It was obviously also very important because this was that battle that completely flipped the Continental Army's luck in battle.
  • This is a picture of the scene when Colonel Nall gives his last wishes before he died, I included this because it's kind of the last thing that happens to confirm George Washington's success.
  • This is the ending of the movie, where the army is marching out of the Hessian base with the 900 prisoners, and a few drummers celebrating their success. I included a picture of their win, because it was a main plot point in the movie, and a life altering action that happened in history.
