Molly’s Story

You become more and more involved with the Fenian Brotherhood. While it’s not openly talked about, there is underground support for the rebellion — you don’t make it as far as Ireland, but you do travel to Toronto for meetings.

Confederation is a thorn in your side. Banded together, the colonies can much more effectively protect themselves from raids. It was hard enough to organize them before; you’re not sure what will happen now.
