  • Clockwise from the top are: unnamed black scribe, General James “Pete” Longstreet (dark beard), Robert E. Lee, and unnamed.
  • The presence of the black character shows what Brooks stated as a theme of AMPU: “there’s black soldiers fighting alongside white soldiers. There’s women fighting alongside men. Basically we don’t have the luxury of dicing our species up into little categories and picking our favorites.”

panel 3

  • “The Bushman Farm” is a historic Battle of Gettysburg site that confederate soldiers crossed.
