    “General Brock’s Last Words: ‘I love you, Ponsonby…how ’bout a cuddle?'”

    Hoya Saxa?

    “Hoya Saxa is the official cheer and “college yell” of Georgetown University and its athletics teams. The term Hoya is an Ancient Greek word usually transliterated from οἵα as hoia from the word hoios (οἷος) meaning “such” or “what” as in “what manner of”, and is used in certain Biblical quotations.”

    And another of the five versions of Isaac Brock’s Last Words is Surgite! (Latin for “rise” or “push on” – now used as a motto by Brock University).

    Others:
    “Push on, brave York Volunteers”
    “Push on, don’t mind me”
    All unlikely, as it is also reported that Brock died almost immediately without speaking. Jon Latimer “1812, War with America” Harvard U Press 2007.
