The Declaration of Independence
Hosted by
2
Hobbes! Listen up.
3
No problem. I always say, theres no better way
to understand something than to experience it
first hand.
Ive got to do this presentation on the
Declaration of Independence.
4
Never mind. Lets go see our friend Martin.
Whats that supposed to mean?
5
Martin, we need a favor.
6
The kid and I need a transport back to the
American colonies of 1763.
7
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!

That looks like a cardboard box to me.
Just get in!

Whoops! Too far back!
11
Amazing! Its 1763.
Yes, 1763. The American Colonies.
12
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 dads off fighting battles at the
office.
13
The last battle was spent defending the colonies.
The King has had a hard day at the office and now
hes broke. So he makes the Proclamation of 1763.
14
Listen. Now I cant defend you if your scattered
all across the land so dont move out past the
Appalachian Mountains. Got Me?
Proclamation of 1763
15
Theyre not, but they havent seen the worst yet.
Those colonists dont look too happy with that.
16
Lets see some more, from later years.

Quartering Act
Listen. Now I got these soldiers that are going
to stay with you. While theyre here your going
to feed and house them for me. Got Me?
21
Listen. Now Im still broke so youre going to
pay me money for a stamp that has to go on any
papers you use. It works fine back in England so
itll do good here too. Got Me?
Stamp Act
22
I hate the government!
Thats it!
This is unfair.
23
All the colonists were angry, but they used
different ways to show it.
24
Listen Doc. You cant take our money without
letting us speak in parliament. Thats taxation
without representation.
25
Alright buster! Now you listen. If youre going
to keep taking our money, were going to stop
buying the goods you take it for. A Boycott. HAHA!
26
Mr. Fudd! Im here to collect your tax.
27
The King backed off, but soon came back with
Parliaments Townshend Acts.

Boston Massacre
Boston Tea Party

The King was mad and he set more acts that were
called the Intolerable Acts by the colonists.
30
The First Continental Congress
Americans werent ready to break off yet, but
they convened to mend their relationship with
Britain.
31
Lexington and Concord
Two battles showed the colonies that they could
put up a fight against the British.
32
The Second Continental Congress
Americans again convened, but this time they were
split between declaring independence or more
relation mending.
33
Common Sense
Thomas Paines Common Sense explained that it
was unnatural for a large country to be ruled by
a smaller one, far away.
34
The people were convinced. In 1776, five
delegates wrote their reasons for independence
out in plain English.
