What Was At Stake

Captives of Cupid: A Story of Old Detroit by Annetta Halliday Antona, centered upon the lives and loves of those who lived in Detroit.  Some of the characters were real, including Tecumseh, Pierre Navarre, and others.

"The war of 1812 had broken out and the young Republic of the United States, from its eastern to its western boundary, labored in the throes of a bloody struggle which, if terminated unsuccessfully, signified the loss of all that the Revolution, at the cost of innumerable lives, had striven to obtain."
