In late 2552, the Covenant attacked the city of Cleveland. The Covenant rounded up a lot of civilians and took them to Old Cleveland. To assist with any of the fleeing and injured civilians of Cleveland, a relief camp was set up in the adjacent town of Akron[1]

In and around the same time, the SPARTAN-II's of Frederic-104, Linda-058, and William-043, used the Base Segundo Terra to help plan attacks on the Covenant in Havana and the rest of Cuba.[2]


It is bordered on the north by the Arctic Ocean, on the east by the North Atlantic Ocean, on the southeast by the Caribbean Sea, and on the south and west by the North Pacific Ocean; South America lies to the southeast. It covers an area of about 24,709,000 square kilometers (9,540,000 sq mi), about 4.8% of the planet's surface or about 16.5% of its land area. It is the third-largest continent in the area, following Asia and Africa, and is fourth in population after Asia, Africa, and Europe. North America and South America are collectively known as the Americas.
