Storyboard Text

  • What is this news about the colonists starting a rebellion!?!?
  • I will send my men over to Boston to stop this nonsense. 
  • By 1768, protests by the colonists were making British colonial officials nervous. They sent word to Britain that the colonies were on the brink of rebellion. Parliament sent troops to Boston.
  • OMG!
  • Yes, sir.
  • I see land. Get ready to unload the ship, we are here.
  • No one wants you here, you lobsters!
  • Yea! GO AWAY!
  • What are they doing here?
  • Bakery
  • AHH!
  • As angry Bostonians geared, the "redcoats" set up camp in the center of the city. 
  • Yea! And stop scuffing the little boys on the streets
  • Stop stealing our goods!
  • If that is how you want to play, we will "play" back.
  • The soldiers in Boston acted rudely and sometimes they even were violent to the colonists. Many soldiers took the colonists jobs and put businesses out of business.  
  • HAHA!
  • The colonists got so angry the started to throw rocks, snowballs, and sticks. Suddenly, out of no where a person yelled "Fire!"
  • We did not send for you. 
  • We'll get rid of you! We'll drive you away!
  • We will not have you here.
  • We are just here to stop a rebellion not cause a fight.
  • FIRE!
  • After one soldier thought he heard the commander say  "fire", the nervous redcoats did fire, killing five colonists. The colonists called this tragic encounter the Boston Massacre. 
  • Are the inhabitants to be knocked down in the streets? Are they to be murdered .. . ?
