GwynethJones's insight:

"This font represents the unparalleled strength of one man who saved an entire world from the crushing yoke of tyranny. This man was an outstanding captain of men, an American patriot of unquestionable calibre. And within this font is captured his fighting spirit, his unyielding determination.

So enjoy the power that is the font I call, American Captain. " @the_fontry
