The Art of Steampunk #10

To celebrate the 10th post of this series, we take a look back at our shared alternate history by showcasing artifacts from the Great Mutiny of 1887.

More than a century ago, rebels from across the United Empire of Terra rose up and brought down that oppressive institution establishing the New Republic, which still stands today as a beacon of hope, liberty and freedom. Let us not forget, however, that sacrifices of the brave men and women who fought against the scientific horrors unleashed by the Emperor.
The face mask of Lord Darth of Vader, feared hatchet-man of the Emperor.
Torch swords like the one seen above were carried by many officers in the rebel armies.
A decommissioned steam dragon, once the terror of the skies, now a dusty relic.
An example of rebel propaganda meant to encourage young men to rise up and fight for their freedom.
San Diego is one of the few places remaining where veterans of the Great Mutiny gather to remember their fallen comrades.
