Obvs you do. Who wouldn't?
Yeah, that's right. It's #drunjhistory time
Anyways. Things aren't looking great. We've got troops errywhere and we're like "where those perfidious albionites gonna come from next"
Wait. Hold up. I'm being a bad officer. I gotta define the AO and AOI. 5 points from Hufflepuff.
Governer of Quebec is Guy Carleton. SIR Guy Carleton, thank you very much. He led the defense of the province in 1776
Anyways, they send in General John Burgoyne to run shit for 1777.
DAMMIT I DID IT AGAIN
WHERE MY MASSHOLES AT, YEAHHHHH
So the plan that Burgoyne develops is aimed at cutting off NE from the middle colonies & then stomping on Boston
He's got Horatio "I break tape" Gates in charge of the northern department, along with Phil Schuyler who is always sick
So far so good for this dude. He's all "rule brittania" & planning his knighthood
Don't fuck with VT, guys
So now Jonny is in a pickle
Taddy K also starts dropping trees and cutting bridges in front of the Brits because my boy gets EA dev
Gates is all pissy at Arnold & Morgan for this. Not a good look
Arnold wants to hit the Brit flank
Gates acts nlike a petulant child and dismisses Arnold. Who is little pissed off, as ya might expect
Check out @WarStoriesCast season 2 for this.
ENTER Benny fuckin Arnold who is PISSED THE FUCK OFF & grabs a horse & rides down to the battle, NOT DRUNK well prolly not drunk but maybe
A professional army of British and German troops had SURRENDERED TO A BUNCHA AMATEURS
Completely unfuckinheard of. Whitehall loses its mind. Continental Confess is confused. France is like "yasssssss let's fuck shit up, Bros"
Arnold & Morgan both get passed over. Gates gets the credit.
Lesson being: don't fuck your officers over or they gon leave
