At the start of the war, Isaac lead troops in to take over the American Fort Michilimackinac. To prepare for his next attack, Brock met with Tecumseh (the First Nations leader/representative) and made a deal to become allies. During the night of August 15, 1812 Tecumseh lead his army across the Detroit river, later being followed by Brock and his forces. Isaac wanted to lure them into the open to make them more vulnerable, but later Tecumseh got his men to make native calls really loud to make it sound like there were a lot more of them than there actually were. The Americans surrendered almost immediately. This led to the win for Brock in the Battle of Detroit. With the win came with an American fort, territory now known as Michigan, and a bunch of war supplies.
The Yankee army next invaded Queenston Heights on October 13, 1812. They took the gun battery, and Brock decided on a direct attack a.s.a.p., not thinking to wait for backup. During the Attack Brock was hit in the chest, killing him instantly. The Battle of Queenston Heights was the Major General's last fight.
