Cover Cavalcade

 Four Color #874, from 1957.

I love the way the artist uses the burning ship and cannon blasts to light the scene.

One odd thing about the story inside: This is a sequel to the Disney movie Johnny Tremain (which was based on a novel by Esther Forbes). The movie covers the events of the Boston Tea Party to the battles of Lexington and Concord as seen through the eyes of a teenager. This comic covers events from the War of 1812. But--after 40 years have passed--Johnny Tremain is still a teenager!!!

Oh, well. Though the story doesn't explicitly say so, perhaps it's Johnny Tremain II or even the III.
