Paving the Way was a virtual representation of one of Ratonhnhaké:ton's genetic memories, relived by Desmond Miles in 2012 through the Animus.
Ratonhnhaké:ton set out on the Aquila to investigate strange events near the lighthouse. Once there, he discovered several British privateering vessels.
The British privateering vessels were destroyed.
