The First Yankee War was a small war fought in 1879 fought between the Confederate States of American and the British Empire. The Confederate States was formed in 1861 and fought a war for independence that lasted until 1863. The Confederate States consisted of Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama and Tennessee. The young nation dreamed of an empire in Latin America, including conquering Florida (at the time a British colony). The war ended in a stalemate but brought tensions between the British Empire and the Confederate States and United States that eventually led to the Second Yankee War.
