History

The Commonwealth soldiers sailed the grasslands of the Unknown in search of war in the old bicorne, a giant, upside-down bicorne hat. They sang the song "Four Wayward Soldiers".

At one point, they picked up Wirt, Gregory, Gregory's frog, and Beatrice and had them join their ranks.

The soldiers then waged war on a cow, but were foiled when their new ensign, Greg, had no flag to wave. The General praised Wirt for staring off into the distance, believing he was looking out for enemy reenforcements. The bicorne then became surrounded by a grove of apple trees. The General urged his men to arms, but they were again defeated when Greg threw an apple at one of the trees, causing several more apples to fall on the soldiers. At sunset, Wirt relieved the soldiers for the night.

The crew awoke the next morning when Wirt crashed the bicorne into Greg's washtub barge. As the bicorne sank into the grass, the soldiers fell from their vessel and Greg declared himself their enemy. The baby soldier then held Greg at rattle-point, forcing him to surrender. The General declared the battle won and banished Greg for his crimes against the Commonwealth. The General also discharged Wirt and Beatrice for supposedly trying to undercut his authority. He and the other soldiers sailed off again in the washtub barge, singing a new verse of "Four Wayward Soldiers".
