Back to New York after my Fairburn-focused diversion, so it’s definitely still Geography as most people would understand it. Again, I’ve obviously copied this from whatever book I was copying before, so any controversies and inaccuracies should be addressed with whoever wrote whatever it was I copied, and not me. Having said that, it seems reasonably OK this time. I thought the opening paragraph about the Iroquois would be contentious, but no - apparently they were actually punished for siding with the British with the war. Their villages were burned and their lands seized, forcing 5,000 of them to flee to Canada and another 1,000 to die of starvation. I mean, that sounds fair, doesn’t it? Your allies lose the war, therefore you and all your family and friends and everyone you’ve ever met has their house burned down and gets either starved to death or forced into permanent exile. Absolutely totally fair and just. I’m pretty sure the rest of it checks out as well, but my brain glazed over as soon as I started reading it, so that’s the end of that. Next stop: Paris!
