In the fall of 1618 Captain Edward Brewster, commander of the late governor Lord Delaware’s personal guard, faces a court martial to determine his fate. After Delaware’s mysterious death while sailing to Virginia to investigate rumors of possible corruption within the Virginia Company, Brewster tried to settle his patron’s affairs. However he soon discovered that deputy governor Samuel Argall had appropriated Delaware’s goods for his own use, so Brewster confronted him. The discussion quickly spiraled into an argument, with Brewster accusing Argall of larceny, murder and treason. Argall responded by arresting Brewster and charging him with mutiny. Today Brewster will face Argall’s wrath as he is put on trial for his life….
