Ruptured Sky, The: War of 1812

The Ruptured Sky tells the story of First Nations involvement in the War of 1812. Without their First Nations allies, British troops and Canadian militia would not have won key battles and the U.S.–Canada border might not exist. Canada might not have become an independent nation. First Nations peoples remained conflicted about whom to support since longstanding allegiances existed with both the British and Americans. This became a divisive issue. Individuals such as Tecumseh, John Norton, Joseph Brant, and others played major roles in the war’s outcome. First Nations peoples fought with outstanding bravery, great ferocity, and remarkable skill. This book tells a little-known story of their remarkable contributions to Canadian victories in the War of 1812—and of how they were treated at the war’s end.
