Lieutenant Colonel Smith is a character vocalized by the tour bot near Swan's Pond in Fallout 4.

Background

Smith was a lieutenant colonel in the British Army before and during the Revolutionary War.[1][2] On the night of April 17th, 1775, General Thomas Gage readied his soldiers and officers to march on Concord in an attempt to disarm the rebelling colonists.[2][3] He instructed the officers, including Colonel Smith, not to "plunder the inhabitants, or hurt private property" but that they "can and must defang" the colonists.[4] Smith then led a group of 700 soldiers to face the colonists near midnight, the action sparking the Revolutionary War.[5]

Notes

An NPC exists for Smith in the game's files, though it is only used to speak the lines during the tour bot's dialogue. The tour bot switches from its voice to that of General Gage and Smith when explaining the history of the Boston Common.

Appearances

Colonel Smith is mentioned only in Fallout 4.
