Added DiffLines:

Anything below colonel would be pretty much up to either the state the troops are from. Knowlton probably figured he could push anything he wanted through. Major would be second-in command of the regiment, but it doesn't directly command any part of the unit (so he didn't displace a Captain from his company). Plus, he'd been getting promotions since Boston, Knowlton just didn't tell him. And that's nothing, Joseph Warren went from civilian to Major General in one step (and fought and died at Breed's hill as a Private, because he knew he didn't have any experience and others did).

** "You have no idea what it's like to be in my situation! I'm a white, middle-class girl who is lucky enough to not have dysfunctional parents who are ''still married'', may I add, and how lucky I am to be able to go to a decent high school, and will likely go to college soon! Meanwhile, I have romantic dreams every night where I'm this rich girl who dates a hot Colonial guy. I do not have a mental disorder where I cry my eyes out for a man that's been dead for 200+ years despite already having a boyfriend; and a very cool boyfriend at that who actually treats me like a person, and not am object! '''YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I'M GOING THROUGH! I AM THE MARTYR!!''' So there!"

** Well, if Bea is assuming that what she's dreaming is actually happening in real time (like her brain is literally transporting her 200+ years in the past), maybe she worries that saying, "The Americans win the Revolution and is a united country well into the 21st century", events may change. Certain things may not happen the way they're supposed to (and she probably doesn't want to risk letting the ''British'' win the thing!) It's just her being as GenreSavvy as possible.




!!18th century Beatrice
* Bea seems very comfortable with acting like a terrified 18th century girl rather than be her 21st century self. If I were her, I'd have confronted Howe himself and started yammering about medical knowledge that they don't know at the time. I may even scare him by revealing his fate. TakeThat indeed. =)
