Oh yes, it was the British. That would be us, then. If there’s one lesson we should probably have learnt from this, it’s to keep our beaks out of American political affairs. Sometimes we just can’t help ourselves, though, you know? A good, wholesome American family celebrates its hard-won freedom. The dog was actually a fearsome tracker, sniffing out hidden redcoats, and was awarded a medal. The baby, being useless as babies tend to be, didn’t assist in the war effort. Revolutionary leader George Washington becomes the first president of the USA, despite his reluctance to accept the post, and leads a unified nation with skill. He is later considered amongst the greatest of American presidents. The constitution can cause problems and wasn’t perfect the first time round, but, hey, that’s what amendments are for, right?

And hey, Britain was a reformed nation for the experience, never again colonising faroff lands and wreaking havoc upon the local… hang on, that’s not right, either. Sorry about that, Commonwealth nations.
