Major Charles Boulton and the Northwest Rebellion is a Z-machine interactive fiction story written with Inform 7 and is © 2007 by Shawn Graham.
This tiny, incomplete, and goal-less story is based on Reminiscences of the North-West Rebellions by Major Charles A. Boulton, Commanding Boulton's Scouts Toronto, 1886. It's mostly asking two people about a bayonette and little else.
This solution is by David Welbourn, and is based on Release 1 of the story.
I assume you're visiting Charles in his home, but the story never says who you are, where this place is, or why you're there.

As far as I can tell, that's all there is to this story. There's no goal to accomplish. There's no ending. So after you've seen everything and asked all your questions, just quit.
