Battle of New Jerusalem

Carlo Hoya

ODST and later Spartan-IV Carlo Hoya, shown here during the Requiem Campaign in 2558, saw action on New Jerusalem, being captured by and escaped from the Covenant.




The Battle of New Jerusalem was a Covenant attack on the colony of New Jerusalem in the Cygnus system sometime in July or August 2552.  While the UNSC Army and Marines put up a strong resistance to the Covenant attack, the planet was eventually overrun and glassed.



These events are referenced in the short story Dirt, from the anthology Halo: Evolutions, and the video game Halo 3: ODST.
