The Armstrong-Allegheny War was on of the bloodiest wars in the history of the founding of the nation. It was fought over a two and a half year period in the North-West part of the former state of Pennsylvania. The combatants were the Commonwealth of Armstrong and the Republic of Allegeheny.
The war started after the president of the Republic of Allegheny dissolved the State Council and froze democratic elections, declaring a state of emergency, and arrested leaders of other poltical parties. The reason he had claimed was for stability and to destroy raider and gang strongholds mainly in the Northern Tier.
After the State Guard (as it was called then) eliminated the threat, the president refused to relinquish the control, and continued to rule with an iron fist. Death squads and public executions became common an some people who remember that time claim every night they could hear gunfire somewhere in the city.
