"And so the days of the Samurai had ended.
Nations, like men, it is sometimes said, have their own destiny.
As for the American captain, no one knows what became of him.
Some say that he died of his wounds.
Others, that he returned to his own country.
But I like to think… he may have at last…
…found some small measure of peace…
…that we all seek…
…and few of us ever find."
