GOD SAVE THE KING: LOYALIST COUNCIL, 1776
CHAIR: LEO TEIXEiRA
CRISIS MANAGER: JACK KOROLOGOS
note: this is a crisis committee
approximate committee size: 20
The date is November 16, 1776. With the help of His Majesty’s forces, the loyalists now have full control of New York City and its surrounding areas, following the successful raid on Fort Washington. New York will be the loyalist stronghold to dispose of the rebelling forces. Commander-in-chief William Howe will lead the council and guide us to victory. George Washington and what remains of his so-called “Patriots” are currently fleeing to New Jersey, seemingly heading towards Pennsylvania to lick their wounds. After this great military success, now is the time for action to completely annihilate the rebels. The loyalists must do everything in their power to rally public opinion for their cause, coordinate with foreign entities outside the colonies, and plan a course of military action to end this war swiftly. The Crown does not have the time or wealth to fund a drawn out war and King George’s voyage to the colonies is a testament of this. Will the Royal Governors and advisors to the loyalist movement succeed in quenching the rebellion before England runs out of money? Only time will tell.
