In 1859, Great britain and USA almost went to war over a pig 17 2, 1:50am

@EzraWil Ate potatoes, was shot for invading his farmland, the british officers demanding he be handed over to them for trial, our garrison denied extradition demands, flags were raised guns were loaded. Honestly the island was a powderkeg even before that, and it wouldn't be the first land grab over colonial tensions. Just look at the war of Jenkin's ear.

Welcome to colonialism.
