Introduction PODs 1666-1775
- POD 1: On September 2, 1666, the Great Fire of London was greater because of strong winds and little effort to stop the fire. More than 420,000 citizens died, most died in their sleep. 97% of the city was devastated. The merchant fleet in London was caught ablaze. British troops led the 80,000 survivors to Canterbury to take refuge from the fire. The palace was severely burned, but the Royal family survived and now start the re-building of London. Within a few years, the Second Anglo-Dutch War begins further delaying the re-building of London. Although, the new Buckingham palace has been re-built, much of the city is left in ashes for the homeless.
- POD 2: William Howe, Guy Carleton and Charles Cornwallis all died from the early American Revolution. This causes a major upheaval to the Americans as well as an advantage to the later American history. Guy Carleton died while riding a horse to defend Quebec from the upcoming Americans in the Invasion of Canada, 1775. William Howe and Charles Cornwallis both killed in 1774 while quelling the American rebellions in New York, Philadelphia, Boston, and Charleston.
- POD 3: George Washington and John Adams was able to appeal to most of the Native Americans in 1773-1774, especially the Iroquois, to join the Americans in the American Revolution. George Washington appealed to the Native Americans by promising citizenship, rights as a citizen, and even appointing leaders to Congress and/or Senate. John Adams added to promised the new nation shall create no prohibitions and restrictions against the Native Americans unlike the British Crown whom strip the Indians off some land and rights.
American Revolutionary War 1775-1783
1775: The Continental Congress approved the second Invasion of Canada as in OTL. Montgomery led the Patriots to Quebec from Connecticut. By now, Guy Carleton died in horseback heading to Quebec. Without his fortifications and defensive lines that would have stop the Americans, Montgomery pummeled the British militia while cutting off communications in-out of Quebec. Quebec is soon captured by the Americans by October. Because of the success, George Washington and Benedict Arnold ordered American troops to try to capture the Province of Quebec. Thayendanegea led an American/Indian army of 2500 combined to Halifax quickly besieging, then capturing the city by December 15.
1776: Montreal was captured by the Americans in February. The British redcoats re-captured Quebec and seige New York but Thayendanegea's troops repel the British in New York. The Mohawks and the Cayugas was ordered by Congress to repel the British troops in the thirteen colonies as well with the Americans. The Continental Navy, led by John Paul Johns defended the thirteen colonies from any further British naval attack on the Americans. London's population reach to 100,000 on July, but the city is still in bad shape because much of the British income goes to the war with the Dutch, French and the Americans. The Declaration of Independence is signed in July 4th, but Thayendanegea was insisted to join due to his amazing work to defeat the British in Halifax and defending the thirteen colonies. This act influenced many of the Native Americans that they can live among side with the Americans leading to a bond between Americans and Indians. Benedict Arnold became the Hero of Quebec as he led the Iroquois/American army across the St. Lawrence River capturing many of the British forts. The USS Virginia, captained by James Nicholson, destroyed the British navy in the coast of OTL Maine. His efforts led him to defend the upper New England from any attacks.
1777-1778: Benjamin Franklin and Silas Deane negotiated with France to form an American/French alliance. The USS Dolphin, USS Surprise, USS Bonhomme Richard, USS Randolph, and USS Boston created a defensive line in the Hudson Bay to delay further British aid in Rupert's Land as the American Patriots drew close to capturing Quebec. British supply ships were raided by the Americans in the Gulf Stream further pressuring King George III. The British King ordered a fleet to destroy the American defensive line in the Gulf Stream but the fleet never left the English Channel when French war ships bombard and burned the fleet. Napoleon sent some of its navy to the Gulf Stream in case of any British surprises awaiting. The Cayugas aid the Americans to re-capture Quebec and securing the city from any further attacks.
1779: Spain joins in the American side in the War as in OTL. By now, Washington had created negotiations with the governors of Quebec and Nova Scotia to join the Americans insisting that the British "tyranny" over the colonies must end to secure the commons' rights and freedom. The Spanish armada also secured the Gulf Stream as insisted by the French. With the American/French/Spanish fleets in the Gulf Stream, any further British attacks in the Gulf Stream is defeated or delayed due to the combined force. A British fleet coming from the Bahamas was unexpected. On July 5, the Battle of Yorktown, Virginia and the Battle of Chesapeake Bay occurred. But with the Mohawks, Chayugas, and the present American militia, the British retreated on both battles thanks to French fleet making it to shore.
