New Hampshire is a state located in the northeastern region of the United States, in the area known as New England. New Hampshire is bordered by Massachusetts, Vermont, and Maine. It was one of the thirteen colonies that claimed independence from Great Britain during the American Revolutionary War.
Before the war, the Patriots in New Hampshire raided weapons supplies, storing them for the eventually formed Continental Army. During the war, the colony set up an independent government to quickly determine political decisions. The Colonial Assassins attended the elections to prevent the Templars from influencing voter decisions. They aided the Patriot statesman Woodbury Langdon in escaping from his imprisonment in New York, back to his home in the city of Portsmouth.
General Charles Lee later sent couriers to Portsmouth to gather up the state's munitions. Ratonhnhaké:ton sent his apprentices to intercept the couriers, but they had already informed their masters, who stole a large stockpile of weapons and gunpowder. The Assassins found the location of the stockpile and returned it, and henceforth began periodically returning to the state to prevent further Templar activity.
