Storyboard Text

  • The French and the British both wanted to expand their territory because of the trade and resources that were west of the Appalachian Mountains.

  • No! That's my territory
  • Washington defeats the French and kills their commander in a surprise attack on the French which becomes known as the Battle of Jumonville Glen.
  • Ha! Gotcha!
  • The British win the war, and sign the Treaty of Paris which gives them most of France's territory in North America.
  • Treaty of Paris
  • I won.. now it's my territory
  • After the war, Britain was in lots of debt, so it reasserted rule over the colonies to get money after they had been neglected and ignored.
  • I own you again
  • Proclamation of 1763
  • That's not fair; you abandoned us before!
  • The Sugar Act was passed in 1764, and put a tax on molasses to help the British repay war debts. The soldiers also took some of the colonists' goods if they thought they were smuggled.
  • Give me that sugar, it looks like it was smuggled
  • Sugar Act
  • But it's not, I just bought it!
  • The British passed the Stamp Act in 1765. This angered the colonists because they didn't have a representative in Parliament, so they didn't have a say in the decisions made.
  • Stamp Act
  • Actually I can, so give me your money
  • You need a stamp for that newspaper
  • That's not fair, you can't just tax us on everything!
