slide2

Hobbes!

Listen up.

slide3

No problem.

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

I’ve got to do this presentation on the Declaration of Independence.

slide4

Never mind. Lets go see our friend Martin.

What’s that supposed to mean?

slide7

Back in time?

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!

slide10

Whoops!

Too far back!

slide11

Amazing!

Its 1763.

Yes, 1763.

The American Colonies.

slide12

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.

slide13

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.

slide14

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?

Proclamation

of 1763

slide15

They’re not, but they haven’t seen the worst yet.

Those colonists don’t look too happy with that.

slide18

Listen. Now I’m broke from fighting all these wars in your defense. To pay me back you’re going to pay me money for all the sugar and other luxuries you get from other countries.

Got Me?

Sugar Act

slide20

Quartering

Act

Listen. Now I got these soldiers that are going to stay with you. While they’re here your going to feed and house them for me.

Got Me?

slide21

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

slide22

I hate the government!

That’s it!

This is unfair.

slide24

Listen Doc.

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

That’s taxation without representation.

slide25

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!

slide26

I hate the government!

Mr. Fudd! I’m here to collect your tax.

slide28

Boston Tea Party

The First Continental Congress

Americans weren’t ready to break off yet, but they convened to mend their relationship with Britain.

slide31

Lexington and Concord

Two battles showed the colonies that they could put up a fight against the British.

slide32

The Second Continental Congress

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

slide33

Common Sense

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.

slide34

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