Just the Outlander chapter

The chapter starts with Brianna in the tent starting her portrait of the man. William and Cinnamon are either side of her, while Pulaski’s men come in to pay their respects. Bree remains as respectful as she can of the mourners while doing the portrait.

Once they are done, General Lincoln comes in with a few others. Some of them are speaking French, and it’s in this moment that Bree realizes she is witnessing history in the making. Her heart pounds a little, and Bree worries that she is going to have one of her turns. Fortunately, nothing happens, and she’s able to focus on the moment.

When one of the Frenchmen puts his hand on Pulaski’s chest, there’s an expel of gasses from the body. Of course, it causes the tent to stink and everyone has to leave. William and Cinnamon try to keep things light in the moment, just as Bree realizes that she’s left items in the tent. The two men toss a coin to see who will go back into the tent, and it’s William who loses the coin toss.

This is when Cinnamon realizes that Bree is Catholic but William is Protestant. He wonders how that is possible when they are siblings. It’s clear that Cinnamon doesn’t know everything—nor should he really. Bree doesn’t really know what to say.

At the end of the chapter, Hanson arrives to take the group to their lodgings. He hangs a lantern and says “pozegnanie” to the general. This is Polish for goodbye, and something that Pulaski would say a lot to his men. It’s such a beautiful moment and shows the type of respect this man had gained from his men.
