Storyboard Text

  • A new start, a chance to strike it RICH, unknown, unclaimed territory, hard work and a new life, sounds GREAT doesn't it?
  • Bonjour, Thomas here!  I bought over 800,000 acres from the French, can you believe I paid less than a Nickel per acre for it?  The Lousiana Territory was a steal!
  • So Jefferson asks us to go explore out West.  Maybe we can find gold or treasures?  We agree and set out on the adventure of a lifetime.  We decide to make a map along the way, just in case we need to find our way back home.
  • Okay, let's be honest.  Not all the land we explored was ours, but we just couldn't resist the Oregon Territory.  Then, the word got out and people started heading there on the Oregon Trail.  REALLY?  6 months in a covered wagon, is it worth it?
  • Maybe these people were destined to do it...Manifest Destin-ed that is! Besides, who could resist those Homestead deals? Or maybe even some GOLD!
  • No FOOD!
  • Bad WEATHER!
