Confederate General States' Rights Gist

Provincial Prerogative was an officer in "King" Geoffrey's army during the Detinan Civil War. He commanded a brigade in the Army of Franklin. Like many of his colleagues, he chafed under the command of General Bell, who gave reckless orders and then blamed his subordinates for their failure. After being accused of cowardice by Bell before the Battle of Ramblerton, Provincial Prerogative sought to redeem himself by not shying away from danger, and as a result, he was killed.

Literary commentEdit

Provincial Prerogative is based on Confederate General States' Rights Gist, a Confederate Army general who was killed during the Franklin-Nashville Campaign in November 1864.

Provincial prerogative was also the principle by which Geoffrey claimed the northern provinces had a right to secede, just as Jefferson Davis used states' rights as a justification for the creation of the Confederate States. The parallel is problematic, however, since the states were once sovereign entities that willingly ratified the US Constitution, while provinces are mere administrative subdivisions.
