In 1754, a young Virginian named George Washington leads an expedition into the Ohio Territory that triggers the French and Indian War in North America. Colonial and English armies are continually battling French and Indian forces for control of the Ohio region, but are suffering defeat after defeat. In England, however, William Pitt is appointed Secretary of State. One of his highest priorities is to gain control of the tedious war, so he appoints General James Wolfe, a proven veteran with tactical and strategic abilities, to command in America.
In With Wolfe in Canada, James Walsham is left to his own devices after the death of his father, and winds up getting involved with gangs and street thugs. He joins the British Army and soon finds himself climbing the cliffs below Quebec, where the British, under Wolfe, meet the French Army of General Montcalm on the Plains of Abraham. This is where the decisive battle for the North American continent is fought, and Walsham is in the middle of it all. The British achieve a great victory at Quebec and double the size of their empire in the north; yet, within a few years, that victory leads to a new war with the colonists-a little conflict called the American Revolution.

He followed with Al.
She moves closer. Shadowstar i know what being alone feels like. I wont lie when i say that for a long time the evil within was dead. All my old friends had left me. My mate of eight months left me. All i had left was Karma. But i realized that wolfclan was what i needed to get a fresh start. I think you are doing great considering your lack of experience. You were meant to do this. That is why i will fight with you until the end of starclan.
"Bye Shadow. I hope you understood what we told ypu." Mousetalon then turned to Cougarpounce, a wooden object with intricate designs in his paws. "Oh here. I wanted to give you this. It's a talisman. It's supposed to ward off evil. I made it after I left my original one in magicclan last result. It was for Calicopaw. It has been in my family for generations, but how it was obtained I do not know. But just remember what I said before. We all will fight against the darkness one day, and this talisman proves this point. But if you need me for anything, just let me know." With that, he padded away into the forest, shapeshifting into a golden eagle and taking off into the sky afterwards.

"What?" He said to himself as she left. He turned to walk away, thinking.
