1861: The North wins at the Battle of Bull Run, crushing the Confederate Army of Virginia and striking south to occupy Richmond, which is burned to the ground while the Confederate government is arrested and imprisoned. Jefferson Davis and several key Confederate leaders like Alexander Stephens, Judah Benjamin, Robert E. Lee, and other important Confederate Congressmen and Generals escape south to Brazil, where they champion the ideals of the crushed Confederacy and settle down. The defeated South is then occupied for six months.

1862: The United States Army withdraws from the South on December 28th, 1862 after the sixth month ends. Lincoln is encouraged by William Seward to go into Brazil and take the Confederate leaders into custody. When Lincoln refuses, Seward begins to go around the north gaining support for the arrest and execution of the Confederacy's leaders. Jefferson Davis is elected as mayor of the small village of Seo Pedro in the Brazilian Province of Rondonia for his stance against abolitionists and the United States. Robert E. Lee, Alexander Stephen, and other key Confederate leaders gain control of the villages by election and their anti-abolitionist and anti-US views. The French gain control of Mexico.

1863: President Lincoln's Vice President, Andrew Jonson is assassinated by a deranged Southerner for "betraying his homeland and siding with the damn Yankees", as put by the shooter, and Will Seward is promoted to Vice President by President Lincoln with the approval of Congress. The power of former Confederate leaders in Brazil continues to grow.

1864: The United States demands that France withdraw from Mexico or face war. When France refuses, the US Congress passes a declaration of war against the French Empire and its puppet regime in Mexico. US troops cross the Mexican border almost immediately and begin to drive towards Mexico City while battles with the French and Pro-French Mexican troops with US Forces state very clearly that this war will not be won easily or quickly.

1865: US troops are forced back by the Franco-Mexican Army at the Battle of Veracruz, where the United States suffers a horrible defeat at the hands of their enemies. After a long retreat, the US Army counterattacks by going along the west coast and smacks a strike at Mexico City, losing yet another battle but nearly destroying the city in the process. After a retreat of two miles, trenches are dug and a stalemate develops. More US Army Units are sent into Mexico until the Battle of Alamos takes place with US troops dealing the Franco-Mexican Army a heavy defeat and making a series of attacks at other Mexican-Franco strongholds which results in the Battles of Leon, Alaxoca, Acapulco, Mazatlan, Puebla, and Tampico. All of which end in determined American victories and securing most of Mexico for the United States, which are welcomed as liberators by some and hated as conquerors by others. With most of Mexico secured, the United States Army surrounds Mexico City and prepares to capture the city.

1866: The United States attacks Mexico City on January 22nd, and the resulting Battle of Mexico City lasts for another seven days (January 29th), when the American Army captures the French backed Maximillan and executes him in the city square along with other key French and "loyalist" Mexican leaders. The Main French Army tries to retake the city in June but fails horribly and is dealt the final blow when their top generals are captured and more than 4/5s of there 36,000 man army are dead, which causes the French soldiers to lay down their arms and be taken as POWs into the United States. The French government still refuses peace however, and the Americans prepare to strike at Frances nearby possessions such as its Canadian islands of St. Pierre and Martinique as well as its Caribbean possessions of Martinique Guadeloupe. When these are finally taken by late November, France decides the time for peace has come and peace talks begin while the American peoples clamor and support for the annexation of Mexico begins to gain a large portion of followers in the US Congress.

1867: The Treaty of Washington, DC is signed by the USA and France, having France keeping her islands taken by US troops while Mexico is annexed by the USA. The Treaty is approved by both houses of Congress quite easily, and the Annexation Ordinance is passed in Congress on the following day.

1868: The Mexican States begin to be incorporated into the United States.

1869: The Confederate leaders in Brazil are elected to the Provincial Congress of the Brazilian State of Rondonia, and they continue to preach their anti-abolitionist and anti-American views until most of Rondonia's provincial Congressmen and the governor agree with most of their views. The USA has Sonora, Chihuahua, and both Bajas incorporated into the Union while the 3 Yucatan States are merged into the US States of Yucatan.


1870: The Americanization of Mexico continues, with the Mexicans gradually gaining rights in the USA's government but still lacking most of the basic necessitous that the average American enjoys. Jefferson Davis is elected Pro-Tempore of the Rondonia Congress, and he gives big state positions to his pro-Confederate companions, allowing the CS ideology to slowly seep out of Rondonia and into the rest of Brazil.

1871: The Confederate Ideology continues to seep out into Brazil from Rondonia, and Jefferson Davis and his fellow Confederates form the Confederate-Latino Party, and it soon takes over control of Rondonia by free elections, and the surrounding provinces have at least a few Confederate-Latino Congressmen in their Legislatures.

1872: The Brazilian Congressional Elections take place and seventeen Confederate-Latino Party are elected to the Congress, and several other Brazilian States have their legislatures flooded by CLP state senators and congressmen.

1873: The Confederate-Latino Party's power continues to grow in Brazil, and for the first time the United States begins to take notice of the former Confederate leaders growing power in Brazil, and when the USA demands once more that the Brazilian government return the Confederate Leaders to the US, and since the Brazilian government, now influenced by the Confederate-Latino Party and very anti-USA, blatantly refuses the United States' demands.

1874: Angry at the United States conquest of Mexico and its treatment of the Mexican people, the Central American Alliance (formed by Nicaragua, Costa Rica, San Salvador, Guatemala, Grand Colombia, and Honduras in 1869 in fear of the Americans), now confident that after 7 years of harsh US rule on Mexico and that the Mexicans will rise up and join the CAA to fight and push the USA out of Mexico, the CAA declares war on the United States of America and even though US rule on the Mexicans actually keeps the Mexicans from revolting against the USA, allowing the small Central American Army to be brushed aside and allowing the United States to drive south through the Central American Alliance and reach the Colombian border before the years end. A vote for war against the USA by Brazil is put down due to the strength of the United States and unpreparedness of Brazil for a war with any nation, let alone America.

1875: The capital of Colombia is taken by US troops, taking out the last member of the Central America Alliance and proving that the United States is a power to be reckoned with. Nervous about the United States vigorous expansion and the defeat handed to France in 1867, the British send 35,000 troops to their Canadian Colonies in case the United States tries to attack.

1876: The Central American Ordinance is passed in the United States Congress, annexing the Central American Alliance members and giving the USA control of all of Central America and northwestern South America. Celebration of the United States' 100th birthday and th its growth in the last century from 13 seaboard colonies to the greatest power in the Western Hemisphere.

1877: Enraged at the lost chance to attack the United States and help resurrect the Confederacy, Jefferson Davis begins to encourage the modernization of the Brazilian Navy and Armed Forces as well as the growth of the Brazilian Army. US incorporation of the CAA and Mexico into the Union continues.

1878: Brazil continues to expand and modernize its military while logging of the Amazon Rain forest begins at a rapid pace. The SS Brasilia is launched as the first Brazilian Ironclad Steam Frigate in January.

1879: The USA begins to build up its economy while talks to end slavery cause thousands of former Confederates to migrate to Brazil where they bring their slaves and set up plantations to grow tobacco and cotton as well as coffee. Brazil receives these Americans with open arms, as most are now very anti-USA.


1880: Brazil continues to become more and more like the defeated CSA except for the fact that the CSA is no longer an actual country. US Americanization of Mexico and Central America continues.

1881: The Southern Rebellion breaks out in the Deep South States with South Carolina, Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana, Texas, Georgia, and Florida declaring the reformation of the Confederacy but as the Confederacy of Southern, and this forces US troops to pull out of Central America and Mexico to fight the CS, which then allows the Central Americans and Mexicans to revolt against American rule and declare their independence as the Latin American Confederation, or LAC. Some former Mexican States such as Sonora, Chihuahua, and the two Baja Californias do not join the LAC and instead join the CSA. Tennessee and North Carolina both join the CS, forcing the USA to consider a new battle plan to bring down the Confederacy and the LAC.

1882: A standoff begins between the two sides as more and more states secede from the Union and join the Confederacy, (namely Kentucky, Virginia, Arkansas, the Indian Territories, the Arizona Territory, the New Mexico Territory, and the southern parts of Missouri, which joins as South Missouri), until finally the USA invades the Confederacy and begins to advance, but both attacks are repulsed. These attacks cause the pro-Confederate government of Brazil and the anti-American government of the LAC to align themselves with the Confederation of Southron and declare war on the USA, and soon Brazilian and LAC troops begin to flood into Southron, creating a huge army of over 240,000 men in Virginia, one of 200,000 in South Missouri, one of 220,000 in New Mexico, and one of 180,000 in northern Baja California, and with the appearance of huge Allied Armies on Confederate soil, the USA suspends all offensives until further notice, making it go completely on the defensive.

1883: Jefferson Davis returns to the Confederacy and takes office in the Confederate White House, where he announces in front of the Confederate Congress that the war shall end with the Yankees being conquered by the Allies, and the riddance of the world from the Yankee scum. He is welcomed greatly in the CSA, and is allowed to assume the Presidency of both Brazil and the CSA unofficially with his close friend Alexander Stephens, but in reality Davis is the one giving the orders, which the CSA and Brazil very much ignore as he is loved by both nations as a patron for nations,a dn thus allowed to continue his actions.

In late June, he orders the Confederate lead Allied Armies to invade California, northern Missouri, and the Utah Territory, and these attacks commence, with the Allied forces occupying most of Utah with little opposition by August and northern Missouri by September, while California loses most of the the state south of San Francisco, which allows Allied troops to prepare for a final thrust to take the west away from the Yankees by next year, while Allied troops will conquer Colorado and Nevada before the years end and clear them of US troops.

1884: Allied troops launch a massive invasion of the American West and finish the conquest of California, Kansas, Wyoming, southern Idaho, southern Montana, and southern Iowa as well as southern Nebraska. A limited off offensive by American troops is repulsed when US troops try to push the Allies out of Missouri, and it results in a counter offensive into Iowa, causing the southern part of the state to fall to Allied forces.

1885: The Allies launch their final offensive into the American West, and finally conquer the rest of the region, having Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Nebraska, the Dakota Territory, Iowa, and most of Minnesota to fall to Allied troops.

At the same time the Western Offensive began, Allied troops invaded Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, and West Virginia, and since these areas are more densely populated, only the southern portions of these states fall to the Allies, and more troops are brought in from the LAC and Brazil until over 1.8 million Allied troops are located on the Eastern Front, those of which are preparing fro another offensive which will begin next year.

1886: The Western Front is officially declared a victory by the Allies, and the second offensive begins on the Eastern Front with Allied troops invading from the occupied West and from the south, with Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, West Virginia, the rest of Minnesota, and western Pennsylvania and Maryland falling while an amphibious assault on Washington DC finds the city abandoned by the US government and Allied forces begin to advance into Maryland and Delaware, both of which secede and join the Confederation of Southron to avoid occupation by Allied troops, and the Allies begin preparations for the final offensive into the remnants of the United States, called Operation Firestorm. With death looking them in the eyes, still the USA refuses to surrender to the Allies, which in effect slams the lid on its own coffin.

1887: The Allies invade Pennsylvania and after successfully conquering the state the remaining American states begin to secede from the USA and and form there own republics, and most of them begin applying to join the Confederacy to avoid inevitable outright military conquest, with only Massachusetts resisting due to the remnants of the American Army being there, which numbers about 85,000 troops, which are mostly hard core American soldiers who will die fighting for the USA unless something astronomical shows up. Allied troops the occupy the newly admitted Confederate states and begin preparations for the final offensive into Massachusetts while the state itself begins to suffer minor rebellions to end the war and submit to the Confederacy and its allies.

1888: The Allies invade Massachusetts and take away its sea coast and most of the eastern and western parts of the state except for Worcester, which is heavily fortified by the US Army. With no other choice, a siege begins of the city, and after eight months of this the people of Worcester revolt and try to surrender the city, which ends in a bloody massacre caused by US troops and ordered by the federal government, making the US Army fight among itself and allowing the Allied Army to take over the city and pacify the remaining US Army units, officially ending the Southern Rebellion and ending in the re-unification of America under the rule of the Confederacy.

1889: In a tidal wave of celebration and euphoria, and flooded with power Jefferson Davis proposes that the like minded nations of Brazil and the Confederation of Southron unite as one nation to form the Confederate States of America, a proposal which both nations eagerly accept, and the unification of the two nations is set for midnight on December 31st, 1889, and on the date and time, the two nations are united into to one to form the Confederate States of America, with legal rights for all Latinos, Hispanics, and American peoples including free blacks. A new nation has been born.


1890: The unification of the Confederation of Southron and Brazil is announced from Richmond and the Confederate States of America is reborn in an entirely new form, and the integration of the Old Union into the CSA begins while the first Confederate Congress from the new nation takes its seats in Richmond with delegates from Brazil, the South, and from some of the Mexican states which voted to join the Confederation of Southron with the wars start, and it approves the Reconstruction Bill to rebuild the war-torn CSA and unite the CSA from North America to South America. Seeing the early successes of the CSA, the LAC begins to consider joining the CSA as it is now respectful of Latino and Hispanic rights.

1891: The CSA continues to rebuild itself, and offers the LAC and all of its interior states representation in the CSA Congress should it join the CSA. The LAC says "not now, maybe later", as it may want to join in the future, but first it wants to see how the co-existing cultures and ethinic groups get along in the new nation before joining the CSA.

1892: The CSA continues to rebuild itself, with all segregation done away with, and the integration of the two former nations accelerates rapidly compared to its old pace, with marriages between two different races legalized and the concept of slavery beginning to slowly disappear as more advanced machinery begins to replace the need for salve laborers, and more free blacks begin to gain citizenship in the Confederacy.

1893: Reconstruction and integration continue while slavery continues to die out.

1894: The LAC finally agrees to join the CSA, and on June 4th the LAC joins the CSA in a special ceremony in Mexico City, and 34 new states join the Confederacy and send states to Congress.

1895: The National Railway Bill is passed by the Confederate Congress and approved by the President, allowing the creation of a railway from Richmond, Boston, and New York City to Veracruz, Mexico City, Brasilia, and Pelotas, effectively uniting the country and increasing trade throughout the nation. Construction begins almost immediately in Brasilia, New York, Richmond, Mexico City, and Pelotas while a tunnel begins construction through the Andes Mountains.

1896: Reconstruction efforts continue in the CSA.
