The Second American Civil War is an ongoing war that has engulfed the former United States of America and Canada, the Caribbean, Cuba, and Alaska. Following the death of President William Westmoreland in 2005, America has erupted into warfare between rebels and the American government. The death toll is expected to be around 500,000 with millions more dead.

War Begins

Campaign in New York

Once the death of President Westmoreland was announced, thousands of people drew to New York City to begin protesting against the current government. The protests soon evolve into riots, and three days later Government troopers begin shooting at the crowd. Police brutally beat any resisters, and hundreds are killed as the remaining flee. The Protester Army is created, and thousands of New Yorkers join the rebel cause. A government stockpile is overrun, and weapons are taken from there by the Protestors. The Government troops surround the stockpile, slaughtering the rebels. However, some rebels break through government lines and escape New York City. Led by Arthur Ochs Sulzberger Jr., the remaining rebels are pursued south of New York City, but are cornered at the Hudson River. They are taken as prisoners and executed publicly at Times Square.

This creates massive uproar in the rest of New York City, and now most of the population is against the government. The Protester Army rises once again in Western New York. The protestors soon take Albany, once the capital of New York. The protesters headquarters are in Albany. Several militias are created across the state and fight against the corrupt mayors of towns. Much of Western New York is now in the hands of the rebels. The new government, run by General Stanley A McChrystal, dispatches a division of Marines to take back western New York. The government easily overruns the border towns and makes its way west. Desperate for help, the rebels approach the Republic of Quebec for help. The Quebec president sympathizes with the rebels, and begins shipping weapons to them. The Government advance begins to slow. Angered, McChrystal orders the Air Force to begin bombing runs over Western New York. The runs injures thousands, and images of the attacks are shipped by Quebec all over the Northeast. Public opinion of the government quickly turned south, and now much of the Northeast sympathized with the rebels. The bombing runs were a success though, and the government quickly rolled over western New York.

The rebels were allowed safeguard in Quebec, but at first it was believed by US intelligence that the rebels had escaped to the Northeast, leading to a major crackdown of opposition leaders in that region.

Northeastern Crackdown

Rebellions began in Massachusetts, with large bombings across Boston killing hundreds of government men. Massachusetts Military Governor Peter W. Chiarelli ordered the military to arrest any one suspected of anti-government activity, which led to many people suspected, but not proven, to be sent to re-education camps in Alaska. This only made the rebellions worse, prompting the Court Yard Shooting, in which the government rounded up prisoners and publicly killed them in a court yard in Boston. Thousands of people, screaming for justice, began fighting the government troops around the Military Castle in southern Boston. Government machine guns mowed down many protestors, but the protestor attack continued, with the bloodbath continuing. McChrystal ordered the US Army to convene on the site, but the protestors continued to fight back. Eventually, the protestors were forced to flee to the Berkshires Mountains, where Quebec continued to give the Protesters more weapons.

The US Army soon attacked the Berkshires. The rebels had some success, taking potshots at incoming government troops. Mines were also set up on roads, detonating under several military cars, delaying the government once again. However, the government had more in numbers, and eventually broke through protestor lines. Several massacres took place, but the remaining rebels fled to Quebec, where they were offered safe haven.

Showdown with Quebec

The McChrystal government demanded the return of the rebels hiding in Quebec. McChrystal claimed that Quebec had no business in an American conflict, and should rightly return them. Quebec denied the request. The CIA of the US began several black operations in Quebec, including bombing, massacres and assassination. The Quebec president brought the leaders of each member nations of the Organization of Former Canadian States (OFCS) and demanded that America must be punished. The OFCS agreed, and in May former Canada declared war on the US. The invasion struck in Maine, Western New York, the Great Lakes, and Michigan. OFCS forces struck Detroit, destroying much of the city. McChrystal got back-up from satellite states in Mexico, which got him millions of more soldiers.

The Canadians were doing especially well, and rebels began a guerrilla warfare campaign. In the northeast, most of the people gave the Canadians well-needed information and supplies. On the first day of May, the Canadian soldiers reached Boston, which was fortified into a massive defense station. The Canadians struck the city, but the Americans had just finished building a defensive wall around Boston, fit with turrets, machine guns and artillery pieces. The Canadians continued to push toward the massive wall and surrounded the city, attempting to starve the soldiers inside. Desperate, McChrystal ordered a massive force be sent. The Canadians managed to breach the wall, and took up positions on the wall. The American counterattack struck the city many times, but the Canadians managed to hold the city. The Americans retreated, giving the rebels and Canadians control of the northeast.
