From the Card:

  • You represent Plymouth in the Massachusetts Assembly at the Old State House in Boston.
  • You are an active Patriot and, as the war dawns, you become a General in the Massachusetts Militia, and fight at the Battle of Bunker Hill.
  • When later asked to follow the orders of a lower ranking officer, you claim you are sick and resign your position.
  • After the war you feel pushed out of politics, mainly because of your personality clash with the powerful Governor, John Hancock.
