In Part Two, Sir George Prevost takes command of the British and Canadians. The attack on Fort Meigs fails. Tecumseh's reputation grows when he saves the lives of prisoners. After their defeat at the Battle of Moraviantown and the Battle of Lake Erie, the British and their allies withdraw to Canada.

[edit] So Awful a Night

The 2 sides are locked in a stalemate on Lake Ontario. General Wilkinson descends the St. Lawrence River. The American advance is repulsed at the Battles of Ch√Ęteauguay and Crysler's Farm. By the end of 1813, much of Canada has been laid waste by war but continues to resist the invaders.
