Sierra Leone[]

The Colony and Protectorate of Sierra Leone (informally British Sierra Leone) was the British colonial administration in Sierra Leone from 1808 to 1961, part of the British Empire from the abolitionism era until the decolonisation era. The Crown colony, which included the area surrounding Freetown, was established in 1808. The protectorate was established in 1896 and included the interior of what is today known as Sierra Leone.

Thomas Peters[]

Thomas Peters, born Thomas Potters, was a veteran of the Black Pioneers, fighting for the British in the American Revolutionary War. A Black Loyalist, he was resettled in Nova Scotia, where he became a politician and one of the "Founding Fathers" of the nation of Sierra Leone in West Africa. Peters was among a group of influential Black Canadians who pressed the Crown to fulfill its commitment for land grants in Nova Scotia. Later they recruited African-American settlers in Nova Scotia for the colonisation of Sierra Leone in the late eighteenth century. Enslaved in the Province of North Carolina, Peters escaped and joined British forces during the American Revolutionary War. He served as a Black Loyalist in the Black Company of Pioneers in New York and was evacuated with British forces and many other former slaves at the end of the war. Thomas Peters has been called the "first African-American hero". Like Elijah Johnson and Joseph Jenkins Roberts of Liberia, Peters is considered the African-American founding father of a nation, in this case, Sierra Leone.

Dawn of Man[]

Everlasting glory to you, Thomas Peters, Revoluntionary of Sierra Leone. You fought hard for your freedom from being a slave, attempting escape multiple times until you finally achieved your freedom. You even went as far to fight against your former masters, being a Black Loyalist who fought for the British. You became a well-respected Black Loyalist, becoming a sargeant of your company and speaking up when you saw that your fellow Black Loyalists were being mistreated in Novia Scotia. You ensured that the Sierra Leone Company was formed and that your people wouldn't suffer from inequality and discrimination!

Oh, respected leader, will you protect the people of Sierra Leone once again? Will you take up the rifle once again if it means fighting for freedom? Will you build a civilization that will stand the test of time?

Introduction: "Welcome to this here colony of Sierra Leone! I'm Thomas Peters, a former revolutionary. As of right now, we're a small, yet close community of former slaves. Make yourself at home here at Freetown!"

Defeat: "I refuse to believe that this here country can just be taken from us, after all our hard work! You disgust me."
