The New Canaan-Legion War was a conflict with an unknown resolution that occurred from 2277 to 2281. The results depend on the Courier's actions.


Shortly after the Legion's loss at the First Battle of Hoover Dam, Joshua Graham made his way home to New Canaan, welcomed back a scarred survivor of Caesar's wrath. This angered Caesar, as he knew that if Joshua Graham could rally New Canaan into fighting shape it could threaten or end the Legion's influence in Utah.[3]


Frumentarius Ulysses was sent to the White Legs, a tribe petitioning for absorption into the Legion to rally them against the growing threat of New Caanan. He successfully organized them into a formidable fighting force and marched onto the lands of New Canaan.


Siege of New CanaanEdit

The town of New Canaan was ended in a violent slaughter leaving only 30 or so survivors.[4] These, under the leadership of Joshua and Daniel, led them to refuge in Zion with their tribal allies.


It is known that Joshua and Salt-Upon-Wounds, chief of the White Legs, had a confrontation during the Canaanites' flight to Zion, where Graham warned the chief not to persist in his attack for fear of retribution.[5] The chief did not listen and followed the Canaanite refugees into Zion.

War for ZionEdit

In Zion the White Legs succeeded in destroying Canaan's allies the Tar Walkers and the Crazy Horns, leaving only the Canaanite survivors, the Sorrows, and the Dead Horses to fight the White Legs.

Courier's ActionsEdit

The Courier has three options, two potentially canonical and one non-canonical.

Crush The White LegsEdit

In this ending, the Courier sides with Joshua in the argument between him and Daniel. Joshua then leads the Courier along the Virgin River to the White Legs' camp at Three Marys. There they meet up with Canaanite, Sorrow, and Dead Horse warriors already besieging the camp. The Courier is separated from Joshua Graham, barely arriving in time to either witness Joshua kill Salt-Upon-Wounds or stay his hand and let him go free.

Flight From ZionEdit

In this ending, the Courier helps Daniel evacuate the Dead Horses and Sorrows from Zion Canyon. The White Legs remain unchecked in Utah, and it soon falls under the Legion Banner.

Chaos in ZionEdit

If the Courier kills an essential character, this quest is activated, prompting the player character to find a map and prematurely leave Zion.


  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 Daniel: "We lost the Tar Walkers. And the Crazy Horns. We did our best, but we made mistakes. We paid for them, but they paid more."
    (Daniel's dialogue)
  2. Sacking of New Canaan
  3. The Courier: "I came here with the Happy Trails Caravan Company to make contact with the New Canaanites."
    Joshua Graham: "Happy Trails. I remember. They were good friends. I have bad news for your employers. New Canaan was destroyed, its citizens scattered. All because of the White Legs. And Caesar, of course. The White Legs want to join the Legion. Caesar's rite of passage is the destruction of the New Canaanites, almost assuredly because of me. The good news is that we can help you find your way back. Daniel, one of the other New Canaanites, has made many maps of the region. The bad news is that we can't help you right now. Not with everything that's going on."
    (Joshua Graham's dialogue)
  4. Daniel's dialogue
  5. "We warned you at Syracuse, and you persisted. You took advantage of us at New Canaan to drive us out, and like the dogs of Caesar you are, you followed us to Zion."
    (Joshua Graham's dialogue)
