Storyboard Text

  • The Beginning
  • Ogden:  Great idea!
  • Gibbons: Wow! We should do our own company to operate steamboats.
  • By: Valeria Lugo
  • I can, because I have a federal license.
  • Since I'm the governor of New Jersey, you cannot operate the stemboats from Jersey to New York.
  •                         The End
  • The Federal Power is greater than the States' power.
  • True. Gibbons wins.
  • In 1808 Livingston and Fulton operated a company. Gibbons and Ogden decided to buy a franchise from them.
  • 3 years later they split up. But Gibbons kept on operating from New Jersey to New York. Since Ogden is the governor of New jersey he states that he cannot do that. Gibbons says he can because he has a federal license.
  • Ogden was mad so he took it to the supreme court. There Gibbon's lawyer says that in the Constitution it states the Federal power is greater than the states' power. The court agreed and Gibbons won.
