Luiz Vianna Filho, 36th Governor of Bahia and 5th President of Brazil

This timeline explores the world with a strong emphasis in the American continent where South America has transformed into a major political, social, and economic power in the first years of the 20th century.

In 1898, Luiz Vianna, the Brazilian Governor of the State of Bahia emerges to the national stage as he begins the March for Freedom & Conscience. A series of proposals to democratize his state with the intent of spreading the message to all Brazilian states. Following the lead of Governor Vianna, the remaining states begin to transform their country into a truly democratic stronghold. Not only is Brazil transformed, but the rest of South American nations as well in a period historians defined as Viannization.

As Europeans saw the ongoing change across the Atlantic ocean, a massive immigration movement began to a "friendly & optimist" South America. Over 2 million European immigrants - predominantly from Portuguese, Spanish, German, Irish, and Dutch descent - travelled overseas to settle in Brazil, Colombia, and Venezuela from 1899 to 1904. A second and even bigger wave of immigrants occurred during the next two decades where more than 7 million settled on the pacific coast of the South American continent. The peak year of European immigration was in 1913 when 1,813,954 persons entered the continent. As immigration ceased to become an outstanding phenomenon, every nation of the South American continent began to grow overwhelmingly quick. With stable and positive economies, the countries of South America convened and forged the "South American Community of Nations" (Unión de Naciones Suramericanas).

  • Much like other Timelines, this one will be intended to portray the general future of the American continent in the 20th century with small updates on their impact to the outside world.
