- The War of 1812 (1812–1815) was a conflict fought between the United States, the United Kingdom, and their respective allies. British historians often consider it as a minor theatre of the Napoleonic Wars. While Canadian militia units had played instrumental roles in several engagements, such as at the Battle of the Chateauguay, it was the regular units of the British Army which ensured that Canada was successfully defended against several attempts to invade Canada by the United States.
- USS Maine, launched in 1889 as an armored cruiser, whose sinking by an explosionon on 15 February 1898 precipitated the Spanish–American War.
- The Battle of San Juan Hill (July1, 1898) was a decisive battle of the Spanish–American War. It was also the location of the greatest victory for the Rough Riders, as reported by the press and its new commander, Theodore Roosevelt, who eventually become, first, vice-president, and then U.S. president, and who was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor in 2001 for his actions in Cuba.

- Peter Keleghan shared that "There’s certain grounded-ness with Murdoch and a certain loftiness with Meyers that make a good combination to play off one another."
- MM Writer Graham Clegg and Paul Aitken drew from films The Day of the Jackal, For Your Eyes Only and Predator (technology). Paul Aitken likens the relationship between Meyers and Clegg to the sheepdog and coyote, Frank and Ralph. The character Allen Clegg was named after writer Graham Clegg.
