Chapter Six: Destroying Freedom
The fact was, Alfred loved war.
He loved fighting and watching things blow up. It gave him a sort of harsh, deadly thrill.
But this time was different. This war wasn't fun or thrilling or satisfying in any way.
No, this war was absolute torture.
Alfred spun the wheel of the large ship sharply to the left.
Cannons boomed, followed by a sickening crackling sound.
"Dammit!" Alfred swore, quickly spinning the wheel in the opposite direction again.
He got caught in another naval battle as he was patrolling the coastline.
Though, it wasn't a surprise.
It seemed like nine out of ten times you sent a ship out, they would be caught up in a fight with an enemy ship.
The only difference was that this time, Alfred was captain of the ship and he had never been captain before.
He was getting desperate. The British ship they were against were the same size as Alfred's and matched them with gun count and crewmen.

The British man gave out a cry of

Chapter Two: Little Belt
Alfred strolled down the short pathway leading down from his small farmhouse in Virginia.
It was a relatively new house, recently built by Alfred himself since he has been having to go to meetings in the capitol building more frequently quite a long while now.
This was because the British Empire had only become more hostile.
It was 1807 when the United States sent out the Embargo Act of 1807 to stop trade with Britain.
Now, it was the spring of 1811, and Great Britain was far from cheerful.
Alfred thought about these things as he reached the end of his driveway to pick up the daily post.
Alfred flipped open the newspaper to the large, bold printed headline.
It read "The British Are At Large." No surprise there.
"How despicable" he said out loud.
He continued reading down the article. It was all about the British impressment of American sailors. This still was nothing Alfred hadn't already known.
Basically, as an act of revenge and desperation, the Royal Navy st
