Spurred by something on Facebook earlier today that was shared on Todd DeZago's timeline... I went off and drew this picture and wrote a little bit of story to go with it. I kind of want to write and develop a larger story around it if I can find the time.

One of this country’s best kept secrets can finally be told. General Washington became concerned that the war effort was not going well, as he received word that Great Britain was preparing to muster its fleet and send reinforcements to the war against the colonies. There was nothing that could be done, as the Revolutionists were occupied on multiple fronts already, with no way to combat a potential British onslaught from the sea. Our country might never have been born if not for timely intervention by one of history’s greatest misunderstood heroes.

Seafarers had told legends of a mysterious creature that roamed the ocean floor. Washington’s last best hope was to forge an uneasy alliance with the creature, Godzilla. Most details of the alliance are lost to time, as Washington was unsure of whom he could trust to secure the alliance and so he bartered the deal himself in a secret meeting. All that we know is Godzilla came through with his part to engage the British fleet in the Atlantic and kept them from joining the war effort against the colonies.

Without reinforcements from their homeland, the remaining British soldiers were no match for General Washington and the Revolutionists. No one heard from or saw Godzilla again for nearly 200 years, by which time most evidence of this historically crucial secret alliance had been lost. To his credit, the creature himself made no mention of this when he resurfaced to the modern world. It is only through piecing together cryptic clues from Washington’s own diary that historians have begun to uncover the true story of the birth of our nation.

We can only hope that one day we might know the whole story…
