The Capital Going Down

By Ava Generale

Cause of this Catastrophe

America has been trading with Great Britain and France. Great Britain is mad that America is trading with France and France is mad that America is trading with Great Britain. It is an outrage and America didn't know what to do. Great Britain also stole American sailors. Whenever they needed or wanted sailors they hop on a boat, chain some sailors, and throw them in their boats. They mainly took sailors after war when they have lost soldiers. They took some sailors to be king Goerge's slaves.
