In Decades of Darkness, the War of 1811 and later events affected much of Canada, being British territory, it was aligned with the Republic of New England and was closely aligned to it in the following years. The Americans* tried an invasion of the colony led by Major General Thomas Pinckney, but after losing control of Lac Erie and other military defeats, Americans* are forced to withdraw. USA* through the conflict loses its hold on the Indiana Territory because of British and natives, in the following years settlers from both New England and from the two Canadas settle in it, Detroit falling under British control. At the same times, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward island steadily moves toward becoming part of New England.

Then came the War of 1833, starts with Americans* success due to the British forces being occupied with Irish revolts. By the end of the war, British forces manage to control the great lakes regions. During the post-war negociations, U.S.A* is force to abandoned claims over the North-East. Wisconsin and the upper peninsula of Michigan are therefore incorporated as British territory. The city of Dearborn stand now where is Chicago.
