Major-General Robert Ross does not die at North Point, allowing the British to march onward to Baltimore.
Battle of Baltimore (1814)
British Major-General survives North Point and leads his army onward to Baltimore. There, the remnants of the Maryland Militia, with losses at North Point, put up little resistance. Major General Samuel Smith of the Americans is killed by a British sharpshooter. The Maryland Militia surrender and Baltimore falls. The Americans at Fort McHenry retreat after learning Baltimore had fallen. The occupation of Baltimore allows the British to land more troops. The already demoralised Americans surrender to the British. James Madison met with Ross in Baltimore for the surrender. The British declared five terms in the treaty:
- The Americans must not raise an army over 10,000.
- State Militias must not be over 200,000 in total.
- All Americans goods must be delivered to Britain or British colonies.
- The British are allowed to keep their territory on the East Coast.
- The Indian State is created in the Northwest.
The Americans agreed to these terms and the Treaty of Baltimore was signed.
Inter-war Years (1814-1830)
After the surrender the capital was moved to New York City. President James Madison exiled himself to Africa and Andrew Jackson was made president. Wars with Indians became harder with less troops. The British also secretly supplied them with weapons. The US found out about this but with a little army could not do anything about it. Resentment toward the British became stronger. British people in America were given the same rights as blacks. Soon fights broke out between Americans and British people. In the May 1 Massacre 30 British people were murdered by Americans. The British population began to leave America to Britain and other countries. American-British relationships continued to sour. In 1824 General John Samuelson came to power in the US. He was extremely popular with the public. Samuelson said the British were the cause of their problems and the public agreed with him. Samuelson also began to raise the army to its maximum. The US began building up its army near the Indian State. Britain warned they would declare war on America if the attacked the Indian State. The US ignored this and on September 2, 1830 the US invaded the Indian State.
The War of 1830 (1830-1832)
The War of 1830 began with Americans pounding Indian villages with cannons. The Indians retreated and the US pushed deeper into their territory. The Indians tried to defend but were no match for the well trained American troops. The Americans pushed onward and surrounded the capital of the State. The US bombarded it with cannons and denied any passage of supplies to it. On September 21 the capital fell. Meanwhile on the East Coast New London used its army and attacked the surrounding areas. The US army stood there ground and forced the British to retreat back to New London. The British then tried to take New York City, the capital of the US. The British navy fought the US for 4 hours near Long Island and the British won that battle. The British then landed troops on Long Island. The US soldiers there fought the British near there beachhead and the British were forced to retreat. The US then launched an assault into Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. New Brunswick was quickly overrun but in Nova Scotia the Battle of Halifax was raging. The US won the battle but with huge casualties with 5,000 dead. The United States then attacked Ontario through New Brunswick and the Great Lakes. Ottawa, also known as Bytown fell on March 12, 1831.
The Southern front was fought in the southern US. The British launched an attack on April 17, 1831 from Bermuda into the Florida Keys. The British took over island after the island and on May 10 invaded mainland Florida. Meanwhile, New Orleans was attacked by the British. The Battle of New Orleans was an American victory with the Americans surviving a 30 day attack. In Florida the British were having major success gaining lots of land. The British were stopped at the Battle of Biscayne Bay where the Americans knew there was no retreat. This was true because the British had surrounded them. The British had 4,000 casualties. The Battle of Biscayne Bay sent the British retreating back to OTL Miami. There the Americans bombed the city for three days. The Americans then attacked the city. The attack ended in disaster and the Americans retreated. With Florida in a stalemate the British attacked New Orleans again, which is known as the Second Battle of New Orleans. The British won the battle on June 5 and they pushed up the Mississippi in order to to catch the US army in Jackson off guard. The US had learned of the attack from spies and sent ships down the Mississippi River in order to stop them. The British were not expecting an attack and were surprised at this. The US ships forced the British to retreat back to New Orleans. The army at Jackson was sent to Florida. The army pushed the British back to the Keys. For now the activity at the southern front had ended.
The War of 1830 ended on March 16, 1832 after the Jackson army pushed the British to the keys. John Samuelson met with British Colonel Arthur Brooke, current leader of New London after Robert Ross's death in 1826. They signed a peace treaty which stated that each side would keep its territory it got during the war.
Mexican-American War (1833-1848)
Because there was no Monroe Doctrine the Central American countries were open to attack. They joined with Mexico to form Greater Mexico. They did this in order to protect themselves if a European country attacked them. After the War of 1830 America had much more territory and was a powerful country. Greater Mexico and the USA had become rivals with each other, each wanting complete dominance in North America. On October 2, 1835 the Texas Revolution began. The US supplied the rebels with weapons and ammunition. The Texas rebels won the war and the Republic of Texas was formed. The US and Texas became close allies and traded with each other. In 1845 the US annexed Texas. Greater Mexico declared this as a takeover of Mexican territory and on April 25, 1846 the Mexican-American War began. The US, hardened from the War of 1830, was quickly overrunning Mexico positions. The US had taken California and New Mexico. The US navy blockaded Mexico and took Mexico City, the capital of Greater Mexico. Greater Mexico surrendered on February 2, 1848. The Greater Mexico-US border was now at the Rio Grande. Even though the war was over Mexican-US relationships continued to be bad.
The Civil War (1861-1865)
After the Mexican-American War was over a new issue soon arose - slavery. The northern states did not allow slavery but the southern states did. John Samuelson was from the south and believed there should be slavery. Samuelson began thinking about making a law that allows slavery in the north. The northern states said if he makes that law they will secceed from the US. Samuelson passed the law before the northern states could do anything he had the army marching to the north. The north had raised there own army and attacked the marching US troops. The Civil War had begun between the Confederacy of Northern America: Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Ontario and the USA. The first battle was at New York City where CNA soldiers pursued Samuelson. Samuelson escaped with US troops. The US and CNA then fought at Bull Run. The battle was a CNA victory and the US retreated back to Richmond. Atlanta was now the capital of the US. The CNA then won the Battle of Richmond and the US retreated once more. Meanwhile the CNA had crossed the Mississippi River and attacked Jackson, Mississippi. The attack was a success and the CNA had control of that portion of the river. The US then attacked Virginia. The attack was a success until the CNA defeated them in the Second Battle of Bull Run. The CNA decided to sail up the Yazoo River and take Memphis, allowing the CNA complete control of the Mississippi. The CNA attacked Memphis from all sides but east. The battle lasted for days until Memphis surrendered. The CNA then used the Mississippi to sail supplies to their troops in Memphis and Jackson. The CNA then launched a major attack on the US by sending their armies from Memphis and Jackson towards Atlanta while ships bombed and blockaded the coast. The armies were sent and burned everything in sight. Camps, villages, everything. The attack made it to Mobile, Alabama where a battle took place. This battle completely destroyed Mobile with cannons pounding, soldiers fighting, and burning houses. The US won the battle and stopped the attack. This could not save the US from defeat though. The whole US coast was blockaded and supplies were running short. At Atlanta the CNA launched an amphibious assault against the city. The attack failed but Samuelson was captured. He agreed to stop slavery if the CNA would stop the war and rejoin the US. The CNA agreed and on August 26, 1864 the American Civil War ended. After the war Samuelson had a heart attack and died. He did not have a son so people wondered who would be leader. The people decided to elect presidents. So for the first time since 41 years ago in 1824 elections were held. Abraham Lincoln, the leader of the former CNA was elected president.
World War 1 (1914-1919)
World War 1 started the same way as in our world. However, because US-British relationships were bad the US sent supplies to the Central Powers. The US was still neutral. The British submarines sunk US passenger ships but the US remained out of the conflict. Then German officials discovered a telegram to Greater Mexico by the British, saying that if the US joins the Central Powers they should declare war on the US. The British then would help Mexico take back lands lost in the Mexican-American War. The Germans told the Americans about this and the public was outraged. On April 7, 1917 the US declared war on Britain. 2 days later Greater Mexico declared war on the US. Two days after that Canada, an ally of Britain declared war on the US. The battle for North America was set.
The Northern Front
The northern front in North American theater was fought between the Canadians and the British against the USA. The Canadians attacked Ottawa in order to take back Ottawa, which was lost about 85 years ago in the War of 1830. The US resorted to trench warfare to keep the Canadians at bay, and the Canadians suffered huge casualties. The Canadians built their own trenches and a stalemate began. The Canadians and the US continued to bomb each other senseless. The US then decided to attack Quebec. The attack was a failure too as the Canadians had built more trenches there. The war continued as a stalemate until 1916 when the tank was used by the Canadians. The US forces retreated as the tanks blew through their lines. The US, being industrial used captured tanks to create there own. There were first used in the Battle of Ottawa as artillery pieces. After the battle poison gas was used by the US but to no avail. The war continued as a stalemate until the Allies surrendered in 1919.
The Southern Front
US and Greater Mexican soldiers first clashed in El Paso, Texas. There a Mexican army was defeated by the US. The US then blockaded the Mexican Coast again and began to invade Greater Mexico through Texas. The Mexican forces used trenches in order to defend from the US troops. The front became a stalemate too. It lasted as a stalemate until in 1917 when the US used tanks to smash through Mexican trenches. The Mexicans retreated back to the capital. The US bombed the city for a month and surrounded it. The Mexicans inside refused to give up so the US assaulted Mexican City. The battle lasted for days and soon only the capital was left. The Mexicans built trenches around the capital building. The US tried to use their tanks but the Mexicans had anti-tank weapons. The US and Mexican forces fought for the capital building for a week and the Mexicans would have won if the had not run out of supplies. On March 15, 1918 Mexico City finally fell and Greater Mexico surrendered.
World War 1 ended in 1919 after German soldiers had broken through French lines and captured Paris. France surrendered. Britain, now with Russia in a civil war, France surrendered, Mexico surrendered, and Canada in its own war with the US, sued for peace. At 4:00 AM, April 4 an armistice was signed between the Central Powers and the allies, ending the war. The Treaty of Berlin was signed; Belgium and Holland would become part of the German Empire, British colonies in the Pacific and some in Africa became part of the German Empire, and the Allies must pay for the destruction caused by the fighting.
Rise of France (1920-1923)
After World War 1 the US was happy with itself for winning the war and resisting attacks. The Age of Good Feelings began now because the US had lost the War of 1812. However, across the Atlantic Western Europe was in a state of turmoil. In France, another revolution began to overthrow the French Government. A man claiming to be related to Napoleon led the revolution and in 1921 made himself Emperor Napoleon IV. Napoleon IV wanted France to be great again and looked for opportunities. Once such opportunity came during the Second English Civil War. The war was between the UK against the BFA, or the British Fascist Association. Napoleon IV's army began preparing for an invasion of England, in order to finally defeat the British. On October 31, 1923 France attack Great Britain's southern shoreline. France began heading toward London. England tried to defend the city but could not succeed with attacks from France and the BFA. England surrendered on January 6, 1924 and war with England was over. However war continued between France and the BFA. The BFA's capital was Liverpool so the French launched an amphibious assault against the city. The BFA's main army was destroyed and they could only used guerrilla warfare. The guerrilla warfare ended with BFA leader Frank Topper captured an executed by French soldiers. The BFA surrendered on July 7, 1923. With England under French control England's colonies became part of France. India however declared independence. French soldiers were sent there to stop this.
India Revolution (1923-1924)
French soldiers were sent to stop the revolution in India. French soldiers occupied India starting November 4, 1923. The Indian Resistance combated the occupying French forces. The French ordered reprisals in order to stop the resistance but failed as more Indian citizens joined the Resistance. The French located the Resistance headquarters in Sri Lanka and sent an army there to attack it. There, they discovered German soldiers trading weapons with the Indians in exchange for money. The French opened fire on the Germans. The French and Germans opened fire on each other. Three days later on September 18, 1924 France declared war on Germany. The US sent supplies to the Germans. The French sunk US supply ships so the US declared war on France. Canada and Mexico, allies with France declared war on the US and Germany. World War 2 had begun.
World War 2 (1924-1927)
World War 2 started on September 18, 1924. French soldiers invaded Belgium. Tactics had not changed much since World War 1 so the Germans built trenches. The French built trenches and another stalemate started. In North America US Captain George S. Patton realized the potential the tank could have. He organized a tank charge. The tank charge was used against Mexican forces at the Battle of Monterrey. The charge sent the Mexican forces retreating. The charge did not work at the Battle of Sierra Madre Oriental where hidden Mexicans used anti-tank weaponry. During the battle the Americans had to dig the Mexicans out of every hole, trench, and cave. Back in Europe Ireland declared war on France and invaded Britain. The newly formed Soviet Union was neutral. The stalemate in the Western Front was broken by the Germans, who used tank charges just like the Americans. Back in North America the US was held at the Sierra Madre Oriental, and Canada invaded Alaska, which the US bought from Russia. The US had also invaded New London. It took back Baltimore. In Washington DC street fights occurred between French and US forces. The former capital of the US was taken back on May 17, 1926, after 112 years of occupation. In the Pacific US and German Marines fought against the French at the Solomon Islands. Back in France the French had stopped the German Tank Offensive and was in another stalemate. After three years of fighting the powers were tired of fighting a peace treaty was signed. The war ended on November 19, 1927. There was no clear winner to World War 2.
Pre-World War 3 (1929-1939)
After World War 2 the Great Depression set in. This strained many countries. In the USA President Franklin D. Roosevelt started his New Deal, which was about recovering the economy. In Alaska Canadian troops were fighting resistance forces. In Europe France and Germany were both trying to recovery from the depression. In Asia Japan started to believe in expansion, and made a plan to do this. It supplied weapons to the resistance in Alaska in exchange for allowing the Japanese to land. Later Japan invaded China, which was in the middle of a civil war. Germany and the US sent supplies to the Chinese but soon stopped as the powerful Japanese navy blockaded China. In 1939 the Soviet Union and Japan signed a non-aggression pact as well with Germany. Later on October 4, 1939 Japan unleashed the another stage of its plan - invasion of German colonies and American possessions in the Pacific. But before this France, Italy (which was ruled by Benito Mussolini), and Japan signed the Triple Pact, forming them into the Axis Powers. So World War 3 started on October 4, 1939.
World War 3 (1939-1946)
World War 3 started when Japan bombed US and German possessions in the Pacific. Japan also attacked Pearl Harbor and Canadian bases in Alaska, bringing Canada into the war. Japan quickly overtook the Pacific. Meanwhile French troops in Australia attacked the Pacific. By 1940 the Axis had control of the Pacific. In 1941 Japan launched Operation Jimmu, the invasion of the Soviet Union. Japan poured about two million troops in the Soviet Union. The quickly overran the eastern Russia and continued toward the Urals. The Russians stopped the Japanese there, and the cold winter brought casualties. The Japanese were slowly pushed back by the Russians. Meanwhile in Europe Germany was winning against France. Using blitzkrieg tactics northern France was overrun. France had more troops and stopped the Germans from reaching Paris. The Americans and Germans devised Operation Sealion, the invasion of England. But first the US invaded Iceland to have a launching point. Iceland was quickly overrun, and in spring 1943 the operation was launched. US and Irish forces invaded western England while German units invaded southern England. The retreating British soldiers went to the north, where they committed guerrilla warfare. The British in the north became an annoyance to the Americans, Irish, and Germans, and launched Operation: Takedown to defeat them. The operation was a success and by winter 1943 Britain was taken. The Allies prepared for Operation: Dolphin, the invasion of France. In summer 1945 the operation commenced. Allied soldiers stormed Normandy and continued towards Paris. The French in a desperate situation launched a major attack against Allied troops in winter 1945. Allied forces were forced back by the French but German assaults coming from Belgium slowed the attack. Soon the Allies pushed the French back. It soon became a race for Paris as all 3 sides wanted it. The Germans got it and the Battle of Paris began in July 1946. Napoleon IV committed suicide in a bunker and his son Napoleon V became Emperor. Napoleon V rule lasted a week and in August 1946 Paris fell and France surrendered. Meanwhile back in the Pacific Japan was overstretched and was losing ground on all sides. The Soviets in summer 1944 pushed the Japanese out of there territory and attacked there units in China. The US and Germany won island after island and took Iwo Jima and Okinawa in early 1945. The US planned for launching invasions of Japan and Australia but cancelled them after the Germans launched a nuclear bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan and Melbourne in Australia. In 1946 the war in Asia and the Pacific ended. World War 3 was now over.
Post World War 3 (1947-1949)
The World after World War 3 was different. In Europe France was divided into 2 different occupation zones. In northern France was the Irish and American occupation zone, and in the south Germany had there occupation zone. The Marshall plan dealt with Western Europe only as much of Eastern Europe remained okay. In Asia Russia and China emerged as the powers in Asia. However a new problem arose: the Cold War. America, Ireland, and Germany were now the leading powers in the world, with Russia right behind them. After the communists in China won the civil war Russia, Iran and China organized themselves into the Tehran Pact. Western Countries formed NATO to defend Europe from the Tehran Pact. By 1949 the Cold War was on. Also, the countries with nuclear weapons were: Germany, America, Ireland, Russia, and China.
Cold War (1949-1991)
India War (1965-1966)
The India War began because of bad relationships between Pakistan and India. India and Pakistan disputed the territory of Kashmir, and in August 1965 the Indo-Pakistani War of 1965. The Tehran Pact supported Pakistan and NATO supported India. This resulted in the war lasting longer. The UN could not stop the war as the majority of the members wanted there side to win it. As Pakistan looked like it was going to lose the Tehran Pact mobilized its armies to the front lines. NATO, not wanting direct conflict with the Tehran Pact did not give soldiers. India still had better weapons as they were supplied with NATO weapons and held back the invaders. The war ended as it was clear no one was going to win it. The war ended in December 1966 with borders set back to pre-war. Pakistan became a member of the Tehran Pact while India became a member of NATO.
The Space Race (1957-1975)
The Space Race began with the Germans launching a satellite in October 1957. The satellite, Berlin 1, stayed in orbit for four months. The Soviets soon launched Sputnik 1 soon after. Soon the Space Race was on between Germany and the Soviet Union. America entered the race in 1962 after launching Explorer 1. The Soviet Union had the first human in space, Yuri Gagarin, in 1961. Germany's Otto Habsburg became the first German in space 12 days after the Soviets. Germany then went to the moon in 1967. Adolf Habsburg, Otto's younger brother became the first man on the moon. His first words were Man has reached the moon, mankind has reached space. Adolf then placed the German flag on the surface. The Space Race ended in 1975 as the German Hamburg 15 met with the Soviet Soyuz 19 in space.
Present Day (2010)
North America: The USA's economy is declining but not as bad as OTL. Newly elected President McCain is helping the economy. In Canada the longest border in the world is separated by huge wall and is closely guarded. In Mexico Greater Mexico has split after economic crisis.
South America: Enemies Brazil and Argentina engage in a cold war. The civil war in Colombia has escalated after Greater Mexico split and some of the new countries are safe havens for the drug dealers. Colombia sent soldiers to these countries which resulted in a war in Central America and southern America.
Europe: Germany and Ireland are the leaders of Europe. The occupation zones in France have become provinces for Ireland and Germany but in south west part a French state has been created. Ireland also has control of the British isles. Austria-Hungary had split after World War 3 as well as the Ottoman Empire, thus the creation of several small states in eastern Europe.
Asia: After the fall of the Tehran Pact and the Soviet Union the Russian Federation is pulling out of the economic crisis by fully using its vast amount of resources. China has the best economy in Asia. Japan used to but the crisis has hit it hard. The Middle East is more stable because there was no creation of Israel as Germany tolerated the Jews. Because of this 9/11 did not happen and the US did not invade. This was wars in the former Ottoman Empire in the 60s but has died down but conflict could start at any time.
Africa: Decolonization has happened and Africa is pretty much the same as in OTL.
Oceania: Australia and New Zealand compete with the US for influence in the Pacific. They have been enemies since Germany, an ally of the US, destroyed Melbourne with a nuclear bomb.
