No problem.

I always say, there’s no better way to understand something than to experience it first hand.

Never mind. Lets go see our friend Martin.

What’s that supposed to mean?

Martin, we need a favor.


The declaration of independence

The kid and I need a transport back to the American colonies of 1763.

Good choice.

I will be blowing up the modern earth in just a few seconds.

It obstructs my view of Venus.

Please, step inside the Aluminum Q46 space modulator!

That looks like a cardboard box to me.

Just get in!


The declaration of independence

Whoops!

Too far back!


The declaration of independence

Amazing!

Its 1763.

Yes, 1763.

The American Colonies.


The declaration of independence

The colonist have just enjoyed a long time of freedom.

Kind of like when your parents leave us alone for the day and we get to run the house while your dad’s off fighting battles at the office.


The declaration of independence

The last battle was spent defending the colonies. The King has had a hard day at the office and now he’s broke. So he makes the Proclamation of 1763.


The declaration of independence

Listen. Now I can’t defend you if your scattered all across the land so don’t move out past the Appalachian Mountains.

Got Me?

Those colonists don’t look too happy with that.

Listen. Now I’m still broke so you’re going to pay me money for a stamp that has to go on any papers you use. It works fine back in England so it’ll do good here too.

Got Me?

Stamp Act


The declaration of independence

I hate the government!

That’s it!

This is unfair.


The declaration of independence

All the colonists were angry, but they used different ways to show it.


The declaration of independence

Listen Doc.

You can’t take our money without letting us speak in our own legislatures.

That’s taxation without representation.


The declaration of independence

Alright buster!

Now you listen.

If you’re going to keep taking our money, we’re going to stop buying the goods you take it for.

A Boycott.

HAHA!

Americans again convened, but this time they were split between declaring independence or more relation mending.

Thomas Paine’s “Common Sense” explained that it was unnatural for a large country to be ruled by a smaller one, far awayand persuaded the colonists that it was “time to part” from Great Britain.


The declaration of independence

The people were convinced. In 1776, five delegates wrote their reasons for independence out in plain English.
