Storyboard Text

  • Here stands Private Hugh White guarding the King’s stored money.
  • How come they trust poor people like you for these jobs?
  • However, as he did his job peacefully, colonists bombarded him with threats and insults.
  • We make more money than you do!
  • Haha, you stupid lobster!
  • We'll kill you for forcing such taxes on us!
  • Private Hugh White, having enduring it for a long time, finally reacted.
  • I'm tired of your stupid nonsense!
  • *Gasp*
  • White fought back and struck a colonist with his bayonet.
  • How could you!
  • The colonists then pelted him with snowballs, ice and stones. Even other colonists joined.
  • Get 'em!!
  • As the assault on White continued, he eventually fell and called for reinforcements.
  • Help! Reinforcements!
  • Captain Thomas Preston arrived on the scene with several soldiers.
  • I dare you, you won't!
  • Some colonists pleaded with the soldiers to hold their fire as others dared them to shoot.
  • We're sorry!!
  • Spare our lives!
  • Once the first shot rang out, other soldiers opened fire, killing five colonists – including Crispus Attucks.
