American Independence

16RevWar11   16RevWar09

Conditions were perfect for a war on Saturday afternoon, as the British, Americans, and Pirates clashed on land and sea, at the 112th annual Pok-O-MacCready Revolutionary War.

In what game coordinator Caleb Balderston called, “..the most exciting Rev. War I remember”, the British dominated game #1, capturing every city.  The USA came back just as fiercely in game two. The third and final game was closely contested; cities changed hands, leads kept changing and even the Pirates displayed their presence. (Click Read More for quotes and pics)

In the end, The USA won the war; surprisingly, the Pirates ended second, just ahead Britain.

The British have retreated back to the motherland (presumably to wage new wars with the EU); the Pirates have sailed out to sea, while America remains the lad of the free and home of the brave.
