Seems interesting and will be watching. Bonus, I just finished a book about the War of 1812 on the Canadian front!
I am obviously a bit of a sucker for realistic Canada focused timelines and this seems to fit the bill rather nicely! Keep it up, I'll be watching how this unfolds.
Well to be fair, it's both a Canada and Britain focused timeline.
hmm titles of Knighthood are given with either the first name or the full name, it is a severe breach of manners to ever refer to anyone as SIr and then the Surname only.Interesting to see Sir Brock live, and decide he's gonna lead troops back into New York. Much could come of that, particularly if the units stationed along the St. Lawrence end up following him....Canada becomes rather bigger as a result, anyone?
Not exactly. The roadways are absolutely atrocious during this time. And Brock will need reinforcements before trying to push into Upper New York. He can't do that with 5000 to 6000 troops. Though yes, this is not a good result for America.This does not look good for the Americans large swathes of the north are now effectively open to a large enough British force which is not good
let's just say John Lowell Jr, Timothy Pickering and Josiah Quincy are going to take a center stage in new englandGood work. Later, when the blockades start biting the New Englanders, it would be nice if some kindly British forces could provide the civilians with provisions... you know, for propaganda reasons,
Well if Andrew Jackson's victory in New Orleans is butterflied - which should be simple enough - then the Federalists won't be disgraced. In fact, with more British victories and American losses, things might come to a head in New England way before any major engagements happen on the Gulf coast.let's just say John Lowell Jr, Timothy Pickering and Josiah Quincy are going to take a center stage in new england
Ah if they're too glaring then you can tell me. Small mistakes like that I sort out myself after rereading and such. New England things are going to come to a head in mid to late 1813.Well if Andrew Jackson's victory in New Orleans is butterflied - which should be simple enough - then the Federalists won't be disgraced. In fact, with more British victories and American losses, things might come to a head in New England way before any major engagements happen on the Gulf coast.
I'm really looking forward to reading a TL as it develops. My only (hopefully) constructive criticism is that you're somewhat repetitive in your writing. I know part of it will come with editing, but some sentences like "the small fishing creeks south of Lewiston to his advantage and stall the 41st Regiment in the series of creeks south of Lewiston." and "The companies of the 41st Regiment of the Foot besieged the Fort, and by 8 a.m, the fort had been stormed by the 41st Regiment and set alight by the men of the 41st Regiment."
"Creeks south of Lewiston" and "41st Regiment" being the repeat offenders (forgive the pun).
I've written a bit of fiction before and know when you're writing it can be good to have a fresh pair of eyes pick up on these things, but I also know that it can be disheartening to have someone point out minor things like this - what approach would you like myself and other readers to take? Would you like me/us to point out such distractions or just keep quiet and let you discover them when you reread each chapter yourself?
