Toronto in Southern VictoryEdit

Toronto was one of the largest cities in Canada during the 19th and early 20th centuries. It was also a major communication hub of the Dominion. During the Second Mexican War, a British Fleet sailed from Toronto to bombard the US Great Lake cities of Rochester, Cleveland, and Buffalo. After this, they returned to Toronto.

During the Great War, the city's port was home to a sizeable portion of Canada's Navy, including its Great Lakes Battleships. The US Naval task force steaming to bombard Toronto was defeated, leaving the task to capture the city to the United States Army. The army invaded Canada across Niagara Falls with the objective of capturing Toronto,[1] beginning three years of bloody trench warfare in southern Ontario.[2]

In 1917, the US Army launched a Barrel Roll Offensive against the city, smashing the last line of Canadian and British defenses and pushed into the city itself. The US crossed the Etobicoke and the Mimico, making it all the way to High Park and Queen's Park, before Canada finally asked for an armistice.

During the mid 1920s, Toronto was the site of a failed uprising.
