Initial Settlement


The nation first began to develop following the original types of government developed by the various colonies over the years under the English and later the British. The initial colonies while usually the scenes of great loss of life ended up becoming more well established over the years and with resources from Vinland the 13 colonies were able to develop heavily and become one of Britains most populous colonies with a population of 2.3 million of mostly British descent living within the borders of the colonies.

Most settlers in every colony were small farmers, but other industries developed. Tobacco was popular in Europe and became a major early cash crop. Furs, fishing, lumber, rum, rice, indigo, construction, wheat, ranching, and eventually shipbuilding contributed to economic growth. By the late colonial period Americans were producing one-seventh of the world's iron supply.

Larger Settlement

Cities eventually dotted the coast to support local economies and serve as trade hubs. English colonists were supplemented by waves of Scotch-Irish and other groups. As coastal land grew more expensive people pushed west into the hills and backwoods, seeking to carve an existence out of American Wilderness. This eventually became an issue with the French settlers which eventually brought about the French and Indian War. Settlers were a diverse mix of adventurers, profit seekers, people wanting religious freedom, and those who simply saw an opportunity for a better life. Many came as indentured servants, either convicts or people who otherwise couldn't afford passage voluntarily signing contracts, and were set free after completing their specified term of service. Two-thirds of all Virginia settlers between 1630 and 1680 arrived indentured.


Initial Rebellion

By 1770 the american Colonists now being taxed for the French and Indian war as well as the Vinnish rebellion

became increasingly disgruntled with their colonial rulers who were becoming more disenfranchised with their own people while colonizing other Areas such as India and South Africa. In 1772 George Washington himself attempted to save 100 Vinnish rebels prepared for execution. While somewhat successful Washington was forced to move south and until the American Colonists joined the conflict in 1773. Washington Returned to command the American troops in multiple campaigns and famously crossed the Delaware river memorialized in a famous painting.

Wider Movement

The American rebellion opened up a huge new front for the British they never expected and even brought in various European powers into the conflict. The British initially held up well and managed to recruit loyalists to the cause to fight on both fronts but mostly in the American colonies. However by 1776 the American colonists following a renewed assault by Vinnish forces and the outright destruction of a British Army left the Americans to help in a mass coordinated offensive across Vinland and the American colonies. This ended up in the final failure for the British which culminated in the treaty of 1775 which by the New year brought up two newly independent nations.

Inter-War Period and the War of 1812

The United States while officially a Confederation until 1789 did manage quite a large bit of population and territorial expansion and managed to settle west to quite a large degree. B7 1789 however things such as Interstate conflict began to develop and a constitutional convention was brought together which eventually set up the United States Constitution.

With the various Indian wars as well as the Louisiana purchase became very major movements in the US expansion west and have it a shared border with the Spanish Empire that extended from Louisiana to the Vinnish Border. This expansion however continued on more as the American-Vinnish Rivalry reached a major height until the War of 1812. Even with little to no american possessions on the continent proper, the British still continued impressment of American merchant ships for naval manpower, the trade restrictions imposed by Britain's continued war with France, and finally British support of American Indian tribes to prevent US settlement and Expansion into the West.
