Storyboard Text

  • The crusades began because the Christians wanted to take control of the Holy Land (Jerusalem).
  • The Holy Land WILL be ours!
  • No! It is ours!
  • Pope Urban 11 wanted to send a crusade to take the Holy Land back from the Muslims. He called this the Holy War.
  • First, we march to Jerusalem. Then we fight the Muslims. Lastly, we win and take back the Holy Land.
  • Pope Urban 11 convinced people to fight in the Crusades by, telling them that all their sins would be forgiven and that they would go to Heaven.
  • HURRY UP! ONLY 10,000 KM LEFT TO GO! QUIT YOUR CRYING!
  • The Crusaders walked more than 3.360 KM to get to Jerusalem to fight the Muslims
  • Jerusalem will be OURS!
  • No! You cant have the Holy Land all to yourself!
  • The first crusade lasted three years (1096 to 1099)!
  • WE WON THE FIRST CRUSADE!!!!
  • The Crusaders had thought they had one the first crusade, but their mess and path of destruction led the Turks right to them.
  • Those silly crusaders really thought they won?! Ha! They left us a path leading straight to them!
