When Ratonhnhaké:ton crashed the Aquila into another ship off the shore of New York City, Washington traveled to the docks to investigate the disturbance. Jefferson seized this opportunity to attack Washington's fortress.
He was later quickly overwhelmed, but Ratonhnhaké:ton arrived and used his Bear Might ability to cut off Washington's reinforcements and open up an escape route for the rebels. As they fled, the Kanien'kehá:ka introduced himself to Jefferson.
They met again in an alley. Jefferson recognized they needed the people's help to bring down Washington and directed the Kanien'kehá:ka to John Fitzwilliams, a corrupt official hoarding food to sell them at inflated prices. Ratonhnhaké:ton assassinated him, and with the help of the farmer Warren, distributed food to the people of the city, gaining Jefferson their favor.
Ratonhnhaké:ton met Jefferson again, who informed him he had received word that Paul Revere's wife and son had disappeared. Ratonhnhaké:ton took up Revere's work of rallying the people against Washington, causing chaos and destruction that turned the people on their oppressors.
With the city's guards scattered, Ratonhnhaké:ton prepared to signal an attack on Washington's palace by toppling the gunpowder storage tower in Fort George. Jefferson spent his spy Godfrey to plant explosives at the base of the tower for Ratonhnhaké:ton to topple it.
When this was accomplished, Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin led the attack on Washington's pyramid. Ratonhnhaké:ton promised he would see them again after he entered the palace and confronted the king.
