Canada doesn't want to kill. America is determined to do his duty. France and Britain look as though they're ashamed about what they're making their kids/brothers/colonies do.
It's sad and beautiful all at the same time.

^ Technically, France isn't forcing anybody to do anything.
If we were going to be historically accurate, France would kind of be on America's side, and Canada with England...seeing as at that point in history (presumably 1812) Canada was a British colony.America was kinda ****ed at england for saying: "you can't talk/trade with France!".
America, independent pretty much decided to flip England the bird and attacked the one and only part of the British Empire they could actually gain access to (not very heroic Alfred dear...) Namely Canada, who honestly just wanted everyone to leave him alone. The fighting eventually led to quite memorable historical moments for Canada, such as the burning of York (present day Toronto and god damn its NOT Canada's capital, but it was at the time) in 1813 or something. After that, Canada torched the White house. So yeah. He may not like fighting, but don't mess with Canada or he'll BURN YOUR HOUSE DOWN.

chii-chan@ tought the same, but... red_rabbit@ I LOVE U omg, where do you have that from? i just LOVE history, so you just keep writing :D

Yeah I kinda guessed that wasn't the theme they were going for...It's a beautiful picture, composition wise and drawing wise. Like you can get their personalities from their expressions pretty easily (except for France's really...)
That was pretty much what happened in real life. You can't make up the weird stuff that happens in history.
While Canadian History for the most part is the most boring thing ever, or at least I found it boring in Grade 7 and 8, since, stereotypes aside, it seemed that everyone was just too darn polite, so nothing really ever got done, or when it was done, it was done in a relatively civilized manner (Heck, the Red River Rebellion of the 1890s or early 1900s, I don't remember anymore, was pretty tame compared to the American Civil War)
Heck Canada became its own country by asking NICELY.
As a kind of addendum to the history lesson from before, America at that point in 1812 had the whole "Manifest Destiny" phase, which was all: "EVERYONE WILL BECOME ONE WITH AMERICA!! :D "
Canada pretty much said: "Heck no!" and burned his White House down.
And as a Canadian, I don't care what the Americans say. We totally won the North American section of the war of 1812. Even if it was the most pointless war in the history of North America. I mean, honestly? America and Canada didn't have to get involved in the European Soap Opera of the time.
And geez, why didn't Hetalia exist when I was still taking history? It would have made studying SO much easier...

History in School (in Canada at least) follows this order Or so i believe/vaguely recall:
1. Ancient History (Mesopotamia (Which turns i think kinda into present day Iran) Egypt, Greece, Rome)
2. French Revolution (pivotal moment in history)
3. American Revolution (pivotal moment in history)
4. Russian Revolution (pivotal moment in history)
5. Canadian History and Canada's role in big pivotal moments in world history, like the potato famine and WWI and WWII.Or just America's History, like the American Revolution and the British Loyalists who escaped to Canada.
Personally I'd think that countries that have been around for longer than about 500 (but really Canada's only been a country for about 250 years, what with Confederation and all that) would have more rich and interesting histories. Though way more dates to memorize.
Which is probably why they exclude it from the curriculum. Decrease workload.

@red_rabbit: asking nicely? then at least that proves that sometimes you CAN get something even without violence? :3
lol I loved the "or he'll burn your house down" and "everyone will become one with america" (lol a second russia)
i know that feel bro, if only i knew about hetalia at least two years earlier...
cuz when you learn about your own country you get much history from inside the country (at least for me) and even though many other countries are mentioned you only know their relations with your won contry and that's all. sob
this piece is simply beautiful. amazing.

^ anywhere you go, if it's not your own country, you only learn basic things about other countries's histories
