Storyboard Text

  • I don't like it very much here in the North, we need to travel south. 
  • The South is being punished and are freeing slaves. I don't think traveling south is a good idea.
  • By traveling south we can make money and become political leaders.
  • And maybe somehow we can utilize those freed blacks to dominate the South.
  • We're here and you're right that's a great idea! We can hire the freedmen to work on plantations.
  • Its the perfect way for us to keep the blacks under our control even with them being "freed"!
  • Now that we'e changed to fit in with these southerners, they'll never suspect us as "carpetbaggers"!
  • Let's go purchase a plantation so we can legally own slaves.
  • Good sir, how would you like to get paid for doing what you do best?!
  • I'm a free man now, I don't want to slave away on this plantation any more
  • Just think abut it, you and your family can get paid so that you all can soon leave this plantation for better opportunities. 
  • Fine, its a deal.
