Storyboard Text

  • You don't need to own land anymore! Slaves are free!
  • I can finally vote?! Thank you, Pericles!
  • I'm free!
  • We aren't considered citizens?
  • Here are new laws!
  • People in debt become slaves? I'm too wealthy for that!
  • I should be able to do what I want! I hate the Magna Carta!
  • You can't do that! The Magna Carta says so!
  • You aren't in full control!
  • I, John Locke, believe people should agree to be ruled.
  • Those are great ideas!
  • I, Montesquieu, believe that the government's power should be checks and divided.
  • We should all agree on these promises!
  • How are we supposed to know the strangers will follow them!
  • We all need to work together anyway!
  • We get to vote for the assembly? This is giving us more power than we had before!
  • This is the first representative assembly, we'll call it the House of Burgesses!
  • I'm sure we are going to get more freedom in later years! This is an important moment in history!
