Surrender You Fools by comic-chic Surrender You Fools by comic-chic
:mwahaha:

This... might be my favorite wide shot in the entire body of work that is The Dreamer. Poor Mr. Howard. But You go, General Howe! Well, for historical honesty's sake, it was General Sir Henry Clintons' idea, but Howe, for once, took it. The two really couldn't stand each other, and since Howe was the senior officer, he usually ignored Clinton for better or worse. For whatever reason on Long Island he used Clinton's idea, and it paid off.

The American forts, however, stretched for miles across Brooklyn, backed up to the East River. The fort seen here was one of five (I think) all connected by walls and trenches.

Was General Howe such an evil person in real? His facial features doesn't say "evil", but he can compensate with an expression.

My favorite panel in the comic.

No, he wasn't evil at all!

The story from issue #5 is a real event, though--taking Howard & his son prisoner and forcing them to show them the way through the pass.

We'll get to know Howe better eventually. He had some flaws (too much drinking, gambling, and carrying on with other men's wives) but as a general, he was a pretty good guy. Didn't want too many casualties on either side, and had a great and courageous record during the 7 years war.

Hehe, I knew it:P Cool guys can't be (totally) bad, can they?
Well, he fought for his country, we can't blame him for fighting against the rebeliants and searching for means to do that.
I'm staying tuned for more of him:D

aww that part was quite dramatic, I read it during lunch break on Friday and was glued to it. I'm already curious about how it'll continue!

You can cheat and look in a history book but... it'll probably be more fun to just keep reading. :D

reading the stuff in the form of a story is much more interesting than a boring history book anyway :innocent:
