This storyboard does not have a description.
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.
