The War drags on for the next nine months eventully resalting in essently a draw. Lee's biggest mistake was the invasion of the British Isles. He was forced to retreat, but his comrade General Sherman left a path of destruction in the retreat, and burnt half of London before forced out. By this time Victoria Islande pretty much belongs to the US. One conciquince of the war is the creation of the Qubec Libération Armée (QLA) which eventully reults in the creation of the Democratic Republic of Qubec, much modeled after the US Constitiuiton. THe QLA illegaly continues to exist to this day trying to free Other French Candaians under British rule. Most important though was this was the start of the Down fall of the Britsh Empire and established the United States as a Power,and to be taken seriously. This was the First War of Total Destruction.
