Pre-Revolution/United States of America
The United States became independent from the United Kingdom in 1776. By 1787, the government was created that would be used until 1972. America's prominence grew through the 1800s but a rift between slave states and free states culminated in a civil war lasting from 1861-65. After the civil war, there was still a rift between the racially tolerant industrialized north and the economically poor conservative south.
The United States increased its involvement in world affairs through the later half of the 1800s. In 1917, the United States entered World War 1. The economy did well in the 1920s, but in the 1930s an economic depression and drought plagued America. The only thing that brought America out of depression was the Second World War, 1941-45. After the war, America was established as a superpower in the world. It would engage in a period of occupying countries around the world to ensure capitalism survive.
After fighting in the Korean War (1950-53), a fear of communism swept the country. Into the 1960s, communism was the largest fear of the conservative American.
