* In "Honor and Compromise", George Washington marches into the Battle of Monmouth just in time to find Major General Charles Lee's troops in retreat, and immediately rips into the pompous officer for jeopardizing the entire engagement. When Lee refuses to back down, insulting Washington and even worse, ''insulting his troops'', Washington immediately ejects him from the field and rallies his men, as James and Henri look on in nothing less but pure amazement.

* The Marquis de Lafayette is a walking CMOA. Not only does he demonstrate bravery and resilience in his first battle, where he organizes the army's retreat despite being wounded in the leg, but he goes on to prove himself a tactical genius and a master of hide-and-seek--most of which isn't portrayed in the series, sadly. At one point, Lafayette's troops were surrounded by the British, who were intent on capturing him, but he managed to escape by creating a diversion and sneaking his troops out via an old Iroquois hunting trail. Oh, and he was only 20 at the time.

Added DiffLines:

* Several of the younger historical characters, including Alexander Hamilton, the Marquis de Lafayette, Sybil Ludington and Deborah Samson, are all either prodigies or demonstrate a maturity well beyond their years. Washington even refutes the notion that the 20-year-old Lafayette is a mere boy, given that by that point he had already proven himself to be extremely intelligent and mature for his age.

*** Including one of Washington's aides-de-camp, John Laurens, wounding Lee in a duel later that year.



* Let's consider how Sara was first introduced in the very first episode of the show-- calmly writing a letter to her mother in the midst of a ferocious storm at sea, even while the lantern over her head is swinging back and forth dangerously and her inkwell is sliding across the table. Screw the storm, she's got a letter to write.

** Even better when you realize this really did happen in the real-life engagement; the real-life General Lee's reputation for arrogance certainly earned him everything he had coming to him.
