Legend of Dubuque

Storyboard Text

  • Halt! You need to get rid of your baby and toss him to die! I have heard from the Great Oracle that when your son grows up he will name the city after himself so toss him to die within the next 24 hours, I will send one of my men in the morning to kill the baby if he is still here!
  • Goodbye Julien, I'm sorry I have to give you up but I can't let them kill you. I love you!
