1861.0

(January - March) <Turns are in three months. Therefore, four turns per year> {C}World Event: On his way to Washington, Lincoln was shot once in the head and twice in the side by an unknown assassin, and Hannibal Hamlin has taken over as president.

  • Texas: Texas sees the union beginning to dissolve and, already frustrated with the United States, secedes. It forms the Republic of Texas and seeks recognition of its independence from the United Kingdom of Great Britain and France. The borders are reinforced and a draft begins, in case of attack.
  • Illinois: Illinois officials is annoyed with the Federal Government. State officials recalled the Senators and told the representatives to come home and secedes from the union and forms the Republic of Illinois with the capital in Chicago. Illinois puts troops on the borders and forms a naval unit to patrol the Mississippi River and Lake Michigan. A draft has been instituted.
  • Pennsylvania: The Pennsylvanian senators are annoyed with the government. While they refuse to secede from the U.S. at the moment, the national guard is mobilized and prepared.
  • Virginia: Virginia sees that the USA is collapsing and secedes from the USA. The Republic of Virginia is formed and Robert E. Lee is offered the presidency, which he accepts. The draft is instituted and some slaves are allowed to join the military. President Lee gets the fossil fuel up and running and the Republican Navy is formed. The security detachment for the President is formed and is called the Republican Guard.
    • There is no CSA. You are seceding from the USA.
    • Oops. Sorry. and by the way, it is seceding.
    • Okay cool. So you are seceding from the USA. Just make sure that you make the necessary changes to your post.
    • I didn't mean the spelling thing in a jerk way, Just so you know.
    • Yeah, it's cool.
    • Virginia Diplomacy: President Lee offers Texas a trade agreement and an alliance
    • Texan Diplomacy: Texas accepts, but first a reliable trade route needs to be established for sufficient trade.
    • Virginia Response: President Lee proposes a sea route from Norfolk to Galveston
    • Texan Response: Texas proposes a sea route from Norfolk to Corpus Christi instead of Galveston, because Corpus Christi is farther away from the border.
    • Virginian Response: Virginia accepts
    • Pennsylvanian Diplomacy: While Pennsylvania does not approve of Virginia seceding, it feels that nothing will be done to stop it and so offers a trade agreement.
    • Virginia Response: Virginia accepts.
  • Ohio: Ohio, while it does not secede, it does start getting more independent from the Union. It builds up its militia heavily, as well as the internal police force.
  • Florida: The Florida legislature sees the radical Hannibal Hamlin as a threat to their way of life. They ratify the Ordinance of Secession and declare their independence. The Floridians quickly ask other southern states to secede from the "corrupt and destructive US government". The Floridians ask the Texans for a trade route to be established.
  • West Virginia: West Virginia secedes from the Union saying it was unstable. Work begins on improving the infrastructure. West Virginian leaders, sensing their delicate situation, contact Virginia on a possible alliance and,or unification
  • Complete implausibility because West Virginia became a state BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T WANT TO SECEDE SO THEY BROKE OFF FROM VIRGINIA AND REJOINED THE UNION.
  • South Carolina: (which had already seceded in 1860) welcomes any other seceding states, and works on creating a standing military. in the confusion, they seize Fort Sumter and other military installations.
  • Kentucky: Kentucky secedes from the Union, and many Senators and Representatives head home for the elections. More railroads are built, and Coal Mines are set up to help get fuel for the railroads. The military is built up.
  • California: Californians begin to get annoyed by the Union, but will not declare secession yet. Meanwhile, gold mines begin in the north, and railroads connecting Sacramento to San Francisco are constructed. The California State Government orders the formation of an army and navy to be come less and less reliant on the state government.
  • Here's something I've got to tell everyone. I've got two new rules for you all:
  1. No trade agreements, alliances, or pacts until there are ten states left in the Union.
  2. The first states to secede must be the ones that formed OTL CSA. After that, secede all you want. However, Kentucky and Missouri are not obliged to follow this rule.
  • That's stupid. That defeats the whole purpose of this being an alternate history.
  • No it doesn't. Who was this?
  • My bad. I wasn't signed in. That's just my opinion AttackDog 00:12, April 21, 2012 (UTC)
  • Oh, OK. Well, you can believe that all you want, but I can argue with it. For a long time. With a lot of good points. Rule #1 because, hey, these states are just leaving a country. They don't have the time as yet to be allying and whatnot. Rule #2 because all the secession are slavery based at first. Then the other guys who are pissed off can leave cause the Union is crumbling apart.
  • It is quite apparent to me that you are not understanding what alternate history. Quote from some big dictionary I took off of my Dad's shelf: Alternate History: Alternate History is anything that did not happen in real life. Thus, the "whole purpose of this being an alternate history" is not defeated by any means.
  • Fixed It. Enclavehunter 00:50, April 21, 2012 (UTC)
  • Ok. Don't worry, California will probably be one the first post-slave states to secede. IMPERIAL NY-SPQR 1Regen Flag Syngraféas Enallaktikí̱ Istoría, Dic mihi lingua Anglorum. 00:57, April 21, 2012 (UTC)
  • Connecticut: Connecticut for the moment does not secede, but starts to realize the ineffectiveness and the nearing collapse of the Union. The governor recalls all national guard troops and ships that were out of the state into state borders. He forms an army and navy from these troops and ships, and recruitment starts. Railroads and roads are built to connect the state.
  • Can everyone please not edit in source mode? Thanks.
  • Can someone update the map?
  • Next turn.
  • North Carolina: North Carolina secedes from the Union on the grounds that Hamlin's radicalism will destroy America.
  • Michigan: Although it is nervous about the South, the state passes a resolution banning leaving the Union. The National Guard is expanded and a National Navy is established (It's like a National Guard.) Industry is amped up and some national guard troops are sent to Indiana.
  • Massachusetts: Massachusetts decides not to secede for the moment, but begins building up and army and navy just in case, as well as amping up industry.

Railways to San Francisco to Los Angeles to San Diego begins, and will be expected to next in 1862. California secedes from the Union, and will occur next year. (I'm assuming this allowed, because most of the slave states secede). The US dollar is taken off list from the official currency, and printing of the California Dollar begins.
  • That is allowed.
  • Texas: The Republic of Texas requests trade routes with Virginia, Louisiana, Florida, and California. Texas begins expanding into the New Mexico Territory and hopes to build a railroad linking San Diego and San Antonio. The routes with the other states would be shipped into Corpus Christi.(technology is not advaced enough to make the Corpus Christi port the way it is today)[maybe the city that connects to the San Antonio river?].
    • Californian Diplomacy: California agrees.
    • Virginia Diplomacy: Virginia accepts and asks Texas for an alliance.
    • Apparently we're not allowed to have alliances yet. I would if I could but I can't so I won't.
    • No expansion.
    • Since when?
    • These guys are supposed to be getting ready to defend themselves against the Union. I doubt they'd have the time to do any expansion. However, you can take stuff when the Union is down to ten states.
    • <sigh> Fine
  • Michigan: Seeing the Union dissolving, all National Guard Troops are recalled and troops are placed on Michigan Border. The government decides to secede as the Republic of Michigan but will join any solid U.S Government. A exact replica of the Constitution with edits for Michigan Counties for States is adopted.

The first annual State Drills are founded, in which troops from across the nation are trained. The Arlington Scientific University is founded. The university is on the front line of cutting edge technology in both the civilian and military fields. President Lee creates the Air Scout Corps (ASC) and around 750 civilians enlist in the new branch
    • Wright Brothers don't fly for another 42 years friend. And please, do not try to invent an airplane yet.
    • Hot air balloons were used during the OTL Civil War for reconnaissance. I meant balloons, not airplanes
    • Okay. In that case have at it.
  • Event: OTL West Virginia secedes from the Republic of Virginia and rejoins the Union.
  • HELLO EVERYONE, IF YOU ARE GOING TO EDIT IN SOURCE MODE, DO IT RIGHT!!! IT IS VERY HARD TO FIX CODING COMPLICATIONS!!!!!!!
  • What's source mode?
  • 'Complex coding and codex' and whatnot. Easy if you know how to use it, though.
  • Connecticut: Seeing the Union is crumbling, Connecticut secedes from the Union, as The Republic of Connecticut. Governor Buckingham is inaugurated as President and his Lt. Governor Douglas as Vice President. A constitution and bill of rights similar to the US's is drafted. Added to this is slavery is officially outlawed and no one regardless of race or religion will be persecuted.

Congress ratifies the new constitution and bill of rights. The Governor's Mansion is changed to the Presidential Mansion, the capitol is Hartford with the capitol building the seat of the government. Yale University expanded for sciences. The military is formed from the national guard as the RCA (army) and RCN (navy). New warships and trade ships are built in Groton and Mystic. Experimentation with air travel with hot air balloons is started. CT offers a trade deal with Pennsylvania, Michigan and Illinois.
    • Illinois Diplomacy: Illinois agrees to the trade deal.
  • Vermont, New Hampshire and Rhode Island: The three states secede from the crumbling Union and ask if Connecticut would like to form the Republic of New England.
    • CT Diplomacy: How would this work?
    • V, NH, RI: Basically we would form a new country. (You can play for the RNE.)
    • CT: OK, CT agrees and will join the RNE.
  • Massachusetts: Secedes from the Union and continues with Urbanization and starts capitalizing on resources. It also starts offering money to anyone who can find an easily re-loadable rifle.

    • California Diplomacy: California sends trade agreements to Oregon.
    • So, what you mean to tell me is that since part of New Mexico was once part of the Texas Territory, I can now invade it?
    • Um, no. It never was part of Texas. You can, however, invade Indian Territory, which is directly above you on the map. (OTL Oklahoma.)
    • But Texas never had any claim to Oklahoma, so how is it that I'm 'allowed' to invade it but not New Mexico, which I did have some claim to?
    • Texas Republic used to own the Oklahoma Panhandle, but never any parts of NMT. Texas State also held claim over the Oklahoma Panhandle, but never any parts of NMT.
    • Oh. Dang it. Tell you what, you can have all of the OTL State of New Mexico and the Oklahoma Panhandle.

    • Pacific Diplomacy: Trade agreements are accepted with the California Republic.

  • The capitol was moved to Staten Island. Mod Event.
  • I know. The Capitol of the "true" United States is Philadelphia.
  • You said that you were hoping to reach Washington.
  • I know. That's what I meant to say. The Pennsylvanian government is hoping to capture Washington to bolster its claim as the legitimate government.
  • Oh.
  • Delaware (mod controlled): Delaware refuses to recognize Pennsylvania, saying that it was the first state. Delaware secedes and invades Southern Maryland and the area near the Potomac.
  • US Government: Congress asks why everyone is seceding. Please post your reasons below.
    • Texas: Wants to form its own republic because the Hamlin administration threatened the local economy.

    • Virginia: Felt Hamlin would abolish slavery and leave the Virginian economy in shambles.
    • Kentucky: Because you don't stay on a sinking boat.
    • Pennsylvania: The State government feels that the radical Hamlin government is unable to effectively govern and handle the current crisis.
    • Michigan: Same as Connecticut.
    • SC: same reasons as OTL (seceded in 1860).

    • Virginia: President Lee proposes a three way division of Maryland with the epicenter at D.C. between Delaware, Pennsylvania and Virginia
  • Kentucky: A new currency has been formed, the Kentucky Dollar. Meanwhile, the newly formed Kentucky Troop Force attacks US soldiers in Tennessee, and manage to take Nashville, and continue to head Southeastward toward Knoxville.

  • C: Got it.
  • D: What about Ohio did I say.

  • D: Nothing, just saying.
  • That was Scrawland, this is Courageous
  • A: You had troops on the border. You did not have troops in the state.

  • What are you doing, DeanSims? You are not allowed to form Unions between states unless you are a mod, which you are not.
  • Georgia: Georgia invades Alabama aad begins to conquer the state.
  • You're not allowed to conquer states and independent nations until the dissolution of the Union.
  • Florida: The Floridians begin to modernize the Castillo de San Marcos in St. Augustine. The Floridian Defense Force is formed by the Legislature to protect Florida in case of invasion. The Florida Defense Force is formed by grouping all of the local militias into a unified command structure. The Legislature also passes a bill that allows men as young as 15 to join the FDF, although conscription only applies to 18 to 40 year olds. The Floridians also confiscate the navy vessels and all other US ships that are docked in the area, many of the sailors willingly join the Floridians, those that don't are executed.
  • Georgia: Georgia begins t build up its military.
  • Maine: The governor of Maine, Lot M. Morill, loses power after half his forces are killed in a failed strike on Texas. A new governor, Henry Hare, is elected, and he has Maine secede, offering support to other seceded states.
    • Sorry about starting so late - inexcusable since I founded the game in the first place - I was on vacation and totally forgot. Glad to see things are going well. Already, the Civil War is getting hyper-bloody, a War of States has begun and things are looking up for us action-loving, trigger happy nations! So, just apologizing for being late.
    • Floridian Diplomacy: We ask for a trade route with you.
    • Maine Diplomacy: Sure, why not? Independent states gotta stick together now. And why stop at a trade route? How about an alliance? I know you're a confederate state, but I think the Civil War doesn't matter anymore.
    • Floridian diplomacy: Will you accept slavery?
    • Maine: We will accept it for now, but between the two of us, that might be an issue to work on.
    • All the Northeastern states except you have formed the Republic of New England. 'Accept slavery? Maine was one of the earliest anti-slavery proponents! 'Also, there is no Civil War. The Union practically gave it up. 'The capitol was moved to Staten Island; an island, really easy to defend, your ships would be sunk and gone in minutes. 'IMPORTANT! MAINE SHOULD NOT SECEDE BECAUSE HAMLIN WAS FROM MAINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! No trade routes as determined by the established rules until the Union dissolves. 'Also, you can't create new people unless they were born after the POD. The governor right now is Lot M. Morrill.'
    • Not true. Massachusetts hasn't (and won't).
    • Oh yeah, I forgot. Mass will be instrumental in the War on Maine.
    • Sorry, changed it. Gad, my first post and already everybody wants me dead! What is wrong with the nations I make?
  • Maine (repost): Governor Morill loses power as his campaigns against independent states wear down the nation , and he is replaced by (unknown man), who immediately starts campaigning against the union. However, his efforts soon fail, and Maine being a strong supporter of Hamlin, President (unknown) is assassinated and the Union retakes Maine.
  • ​Massachusetts: Offers a trade alliance to the RNE (though it will not join).
    • RNE: The RNE accepts

1861.75

  • United States: The Union is dissolved. New York forms the Republic of New York with William H. Seward as President. Indiana and Ohio form the Mideastern Republic. Hannibal Hamlin moves to Canada.
  • Scrawland, you can't have New Jersey. You have to do it the old fashioned way and conquer it, not just proclaim that you own it.
  • We united as one. What is wrong with that?
  • I think the problem with it is that it is a very easy way to gain land. And since New Jersey has no player, we don't know if that is what they would do.
  • OK, fine. Me and MP will victoriously invade it.
  • New York: New York offers an alliance (yes, they are allowed now) to California and Pennsylvania. William H. Seward is President until official elections are held in 1864. Half the United States Navy is transformed into the Navy of New York. (That's our prize for not seceding!) New York asks to buy the Erie Triangle from Pennsylvania. President Seward orders an invasion of Jersey and asks Pennsylvania to help.
    • New plan: Since you apparently can't own New Jersey, how about we create an alliance and invade it together? You get the north and I get the south. We're both happy! :)
    • That sounds better. Thank you for thinking outside the box, MP. LOL
    • That sounds good. - Scraw.
    • Vive la invasion!
    • Pennsylvanian Diplomacy: We ask New York for trade rights and an alliance.
    • NY Diplomacy: NY agrees only if you help us invade Jersey. You will get the South and we will get the North.
    • Pennsylvanian Diplomacy: Agreed, LOL. Troops are invading as we speak.
    • Algorithm Diplomacy: (Result) Bye-bye, Jersey.
    • Would you mind posting it? Not trying to give you a hard time, just trying to make sure that it's fair.
    • OK, I'm posting it on the Algorithm's talk page.
  • Pennsylvania: The Pennsylvanian Government refuses to acknowledge that the Union has fallen, and they rename the state the United States (Just the United States, no America). A draft is issued, raising the army to 3.5% and over 100,000 men. The production of cannons and rifles increases dramatically, and General Mead leads the attack on Washington while Winfield Scott Hancock sieges Baltimore. With no real government resistance, Mead captures Washington after a month's siege. Lincoln's former Secretary of Defense returns to Philadelphia to become provisional president.
    • Delaware Diplomacy: We thought we were splitting DC and Maryland with Virginia.
    • Pennsylvanian Diplomacy: The negotiations were not completed, therefore such obligations didn't exist.
    • Delawarean Diplomacy: Well, can we still split the land? Reminder: Delaware took Southern Maryland upon secession.
    • Virginian Response: Virginia wishes for a peaceful resolution to split Maryland. However, if one can not be achieved, Virginia isn't afraid to go to war.
    • Delaware Diplomacy: Delaware just wants to keep the South, which has been held since secession.
    • Pennsylvanian Diplomacy: We wish to keep part of the coast and Washington if that is agreeable to Virginia.
    • Virginian Response: Virginia offers to let Pennsylvania have the Maryland territory to the immediate south and Virginia will take the eastern part, excluding the peninsula.
    • Pennsylvanian Diplomacy: Does that include Washington?
    • Virginian Diplomacy: D.C. would be split in half.
    • Delaware Diplomacy: Ok, so VA can get DC on their side of the Potomac and Delaware and PA will split the other side. Deal?
    • Virginia: This is what I was thinking. Blue=Virginia, Red=Pennsylvania, Yellow=Delaware.
    • Division of Maryland 2

      Blue=Virginia Red=Pennsylvania Yellow=Delaware

    • Delaware Diplomacy: Accepted.
    • Pennsylvanian Diplomacy: As long as we get part of D.C. in this treaty, then we accept.
    • Virginia Diplomacy: You get the part of D.C. that is contained in Maryland. I get the part in Virginia
    • Pennsylvania: Accepted.
  • Florida: Florida rejoices at the fall of the Union, many fill the streets of cities in joyous celebration. The FDF continues to modernize the Castillo de San Marcos. The Floridian Legislature issues its first tariff, the tariff puts a 5% tax on all imports. The Legislature appoints Governor Madison S. Perry to be the President of the State of Florida. President Perry quickly launches a project to modernize the FDF's main fighting units.
    • Floridian Diplomacy: The Floridians ask the Europeans for a trade of weapons for cattle (note: Florida was, and still is, one of the largest cattle producers in the WORLD.)
    • Not as much as Texas LOL
    • Actually during the Civil War it provided most of the cattle to the Confederate army, but that is irrelevant
    • Texan Diplomacy: Texas requests a trade agreement and an alliance with Florida.
    • Floridian Diplomacy: Agree
  • Maine: President Hare has five Hamlinist spies arrested and pulls troops out of Pennsylvania, thus ending the War of States. The streets are filled with celebration. Now, the president begins work on improving the Floridian trade route and establishes a new capital. He chooses his childhood home, the coastal town of Chestnut Harbor, renames it Victory and begins extensive work on modernizing and expanding it. Meanwhile, several northeastern states are offered alliances, and plans for the Maritime Alliance take hold. A trade route is offered to the Pacific Alliance.
  • Look, how, many times am I going to tell you that fictional people have to be born after the POD. Thus, "Hare" is ineligible for governor. Also, Maine was Hamlin's home state, so "Hamlinist spies" would not be arrested. For that matter, they wouldn't even be there in the first place! Also, Maine's people would revolt and take "Hare" out of office for being selfish, biased and nonjudgmental for moving the capital to his "childhood home." Also, no troops were in Pennsylvania in the first place: reminder: you would have to go through the Republic of New England and Massachusetts to begin with.
  • Maine (repost): As President Morill struggles to re-establish the Union, the state is torn between independence and the glory of the USA. The state is destroyed by civil war and collapses into anarchy. Morill escapes to Canada and tracks down Hamlin, beginning a struggle to re-establish the USA. Maine is now up for grabs, since I don't want to play anymore as everybody wants my state destroyed and my posts deleted. End of story. Goodbye.
  • That's not true. We just want you to be plausible.
  • Just seems like everything I do in every game turns out to be implausible. Vive la Revolution Revised, Battle for Earth Revised, States of America 5 - the only game where I am being plausible is Human Evolution: The Third Game, and that game is falling apart. Even the games I founded! I just fail at everything althistorical because I don't know enough about history! So I'm leaving this game, because I don't want this to be just another failure.
  • Your not a failure. If you don't know everything about History, you don't have to panic. No one knows everything about history. What you do about it is do a little research. Thats it. TacoCopper
  • Well, other than the Hamlinist spies your first entry was pretty good. And yeah, people (blush) including me were kinda ganging up on you but... that's no reason to quit, get some allies!
  • Still, I have too many map games going on right now. Besides, I don't really like Maine anyway, but it was the only state left.
  • Virginia: President Lee launches the Five Year Plan. The plan aims to industrialize the small nation and make it largely self-sufficient. New factories are built along the Potomac and James Rivers and men are drafted until the military reaches its full capacity (84,000). President Lee reaches out to other Southern states, telling them that the need to make an identity for themselves and become friendly with other secessionist states. President Lee declares the Shenandoah Valley a national park and hunting and fishing there is made illegal. The Virginian Law Code is drafted and approved by the Senate and gives women more rights such as the right to vote. President Lee is hailed as the People’s president and July 6 is declared Robert E. Lee Day. Preparations begin for the celebration of Independence Day (January 15th). The government is reorganized along with the election system. Candidates will now be elected on popular vote instead of the Electoral College. The mining and oil industries are producing more resources than ever and the fishing in the Chesapeake Bay is booming. Railroads are built to connect Virginia as well as telegraph lines. President Lee orders the building of bridges across the James, York and Rappahannock Rivers as well as increasing the number of ferries going to and from the Eastern Shore.

  • Just checking.
  • Michigan: Continues to advance into Wisconsin until it is fully joint occupied. Navy and Military are expanded. A Non-Aggression Act is offered to the United States. Troops begin to march into Minnesota.
  • Republic of New England: The RNE builds new Ironclads. Research of new cannons and guns are started. The government builds a Naval Academy, an Army Academy, a Sniper School and a Special Forces School. Tons of people sign up for each school. Congress and the President create a special branch of the military called the Green Mountain Boys Special Forces, they are a select few troops trained in naval, army, sniping, artillery, tracking and various other specializations.

  • Mod Event 3: At Minneapolis, the NFR crushes Michigan and chases them to the border. The President offers a peace to the Michiganders.
  • Sweet, Now can you do something to California and Texas who are expanding a little ASB?
  • Hmm, that sounds like a good idea.
  • How has Texas and California been expanding ASB?
  • Texas and California touching in a year, hmmm.
  • That is not ASB. And its not like we invaded one turn, and conquered it the next. It took more than two turns, and we both expanded from both sides, allowing to conquer the territory much faster.
  • Hey, if Virginia, Kentucky, and Pennsylvania can conquer West Virginia in one turn, then there is nothing wrong with us conquering New Mexico in four.
  • There's a difference. A small State like West Virginia, attacked by three nations, wouldn't take that long to fix. Now, a large area being attacked by two nations. Do you see it now.
  • So, a larger territory attacked by two nations in one year isn't plausible?
  • No, no its fine. I was just making a comparison.
  • Oh whoops sorry my bad
  • Michigan Diplomacy: If we can have 50 miles from Lake Superior inland into Minnesota... We need to border more of British Canada, that was the point of our invasion. You know, scratch that. Just peace and a non-aggression act.
  • Illinois Diplomacy: Will accept peace with the NFR with a proposal to split Wisconsin three ways.

  • New York Diplomacy: OK, then.
  • RNE: Ok, RNE pulls out troops from the southern part of the territory, and any civilians wanting to stay in the RNE are relocated.
  • Next turn?
    • ​NO.
  • South Carolina: North Carolina is now completely occupied, as well as the eastern mountains of Tennessee. The remainder of Tennessee declares their independence, and South Carolina lets them do so. A new capital is built in Charlotte, and the Republic of Carolina is created. the army and navy are kept active in case of British attack. most soldiers are relocated to the Atlantic coast. Carolina sends a diplomat to Britain stating that the countries have no resentment towards one another, and that they are fine with Britain reclaiming northern states. South Carolina, claiming to be the the only legitimate government of the Carolinas, creates the Republic of Carolina, even though they do not yet have full de facto control over NC.
  • Sorry man, but NC buffed up against you. The war rages on.
  • Mod Controlled Britain: Britain refuses to listen to anything since South Carolina was one of the rebel colonies.
    • Carolina Diplomacy: We were the first to abandon the nation you despised so much. why not let the enemy (SC) of your enemy (northern USA) be your friend, as the old saying goes?
    • Because they're British blockheads, LOL.

  • Virginia: The Air Scout Corps perfects a way to drop bombs from the balloons. A claw mechanism is attached to the bottom of the balloon and a hatch is in the floor of the basket, allowing bombs to be loaded. The mechanism is operated by a lever. President Lee forms the Women’s League. The group is a place where women can go to petition for more rights for women. The Slave’s Estate School is established. Slaves ages five to 12 must go here before they can be sold or start their labor. There is also an upper level of the school for adult slaves. The prototype repeater rifle is tested and is a huge success. The gun is christened the V62A1 Winchester. The rifle fires a new specially designed cartridge called the .308 Winchester. The gun has a range of 350-425 yards. The rifle is immediately put into mass production and the first issues should be done in a few months (Next Turn). Virginia is now largely industrialized with factories spread out across the nation. The nation still clings to its agricultural base and is largely able to feed itself. With the absorption of the coal mines of West Virginia, coal output skyrockets. President Lee now begins searching for new allies to help combat the British threat. President Lee’s son, Robert Edward Lee Jr., joins the Republican Army and is placed in the 1st Shock Army. President Lee beams with happiness and congratulates his son. President Lee drafts War Plan Red, a plan for an attack from the British. The plan details how Virginia should respond in the event of an attack on allies or an attack on Virginia itself.

The Rights for California Woman Committee is created, and begins to petition California government for equal rights and the ability to join the military in non-combat roles. The military is expanded, and Gatling guns are placed on the Pacific Wall.
  • Massachusetts: Develops the AX-1, a sniper rifle that can hit targets 800 yards away. Offers a trade alliance and full alliance to New York. Starts building farms, martial law is relaxed. Announces that it will open its doors to any runaway slaves, no questions asked. Builds new air force of balloons. Offers help to Virginia if they will abandon slavery.
  • A mile?!!? That's a bit implausible.
  • Say what?
  • No sniper rifle then had an range of an mile, and the farthest range at the time was 800 yards.
  • Yeah, Almost all of this post is implausible.
  • Fixed to 800 yards. And the flying fortress removed.

The Constitution is based on the US Constitution and the city of Chicago is the capital. One of the first things they did is to rename the ISS Illinois to the FSS Illinois. Also they launched another ironclad called the FSS Enterprise. Richard Yates became the first President of the FSA. His goal is to keep the alliances that Illinois had, and forge new alliances. He also had the military build up more and trained better. He also order that military units be integrated.
  • Since when did you take Indiana?
  • Since Michigan and the FS split Indiana in half. Please read above...
  • Republic of New England: The RNE creates thier own version of the repeating rifle called the liberator and has a maximum range of 425. They immediately begin producing them and distributing them to the troops. The repeater is modified also to become a sniper, and distributed to sniper troops. The potential of balloons is realized and more are made for both recon and to drop bombs. Defenses ring the borders facing Canada, Long Island Sound, and the Atlantic. Research on Gatling guns is started.
  • Kentucky: Kentucky proposes an American Free Trade Zone. It would remove any form of tariffs or other forms of protection on trade with other members. It would allow any former American State to join. Meanwhile, more infrastructure is built up. Textile industries are encouraged to set up shop in the nation.

Michigan ain't exactly doing great, and Edison always wanted to come to New York City.) The repeater is invented. The first model is titled the XX9-20D9 and distributed throughout the Army. The Northeastern Alliance is created. Preparations are made to invade Ontario and Montreal.
    • No Scraw, you are not allowed to have him come to New York. He is a native of Michagin so Michagin has control of him.
    • It's "Michigan." And he's a native of Ohio, he just moved to Michigan at an early age.
    • At this point, it doesn't matter because Michigan has control of him.
    • FYI, he was working in some guy's basement in Jersey at this point in time, and that basement is in the part of Jersey that New York got while also living in Kentuckistan.
    • Could neither Kentucky neither Michigan use him until we finish this? Thanks.
    • It will just be a mod event and will be open to everyone. As not to cause fighting, we will not specify where he is.
    • Actually, you know who is born in Michigan is Henry Ford in July 1863.
  • Confederate States of Dixie: The buildup of the military begins as fast as possible while construction of industries in Southron begins as well. Slavery is legalized in the new constitution while the slave trade is reopened, although prices are increased to make slavery seem less appealing. Virginia and Louisiana are both offered alliances and non-aggression pacts.
  • Virginian Diplomacy: We accept
  • What is "Southron?" That's not even a word.
  • Southron is another name for the south I made up, would the Confederation of Dixie work better or can I keep Southron?
  • I, for one, like the word "Southron," but I don't see it happening. Dixie sounds good, though.
  • All right, I will change it to Dixie, I don't think the CSA would work for this, or would it, or even better, the Confederate States of Dixie!

    • United States Diplomacy: Then we can work together.
    • Federated States Diplomacy: Agreed. The FSA will attack the Brits on the western part of Ohio while the US will attack on the Brits on the eastern part of Ohio. Both forces should meet in Columbus. Once the forces will meet the FS will fight along side of the US.
  • Michigan: Michigan repels British attacks on its territory and the army invades Ontario.
  • Virginia: In the face of the British invasion, President Lee takes personal command of the Republican Army and drives the British back, reclaiming much of Virginia.

    SOA5 Map 11

    New Map. That blue-green is France. Everything else you can tell. Pennsylvania also has the Bahamas.

    g groups out to British Canada. Rail links continue to connect to Las Vegas, Phoenix, Flagstaff, San Diego, and San Francisco, and the Pacific Wall continues. The RCN Scott is launched in name of the hero of the Mexican-American War.
  • Ok, the new map is up! The only thing you do not see is Pennsylvanian control of the Bahamas.
  • I was thinking that Pennsylvania would get part of Southern Ontario. How did I get the Bahamas?
  • Because you only border Canada across Lake Erie, so it seems like the best thing to give you.
  • So something across an even larger section of water makes more sense? Especially since New York apparently got 25% of the U.S. navy.
  • Problem is, I had plans to invade Michigan in a couple of years. (Important: Michigan does not know.)
  • I don't want all of it, just the southern part. That's all.
  • Oh ok then. Is that good? I can give you more land if you ask for it.
  • This is what I was thinking. I can grant access to your armies if you want.
  • OK then, it's a deal.
  • In other news, why the heck did Michigan not get the land a rocks throw away from Detroit. It makes 99% more sense for us to have that than a small bit of Central Ontario. Also, a naval invasion should take less land than an invasion across a river which is basically crossing over a bridge.
  • First of all, because Pennsylvania ought to get some land too: Note: You got more land than Pennsylvania. Second: New York didn't just cross a river. They marched through that land "a rock's throw away" from the border and occupied Toronto and Ottawa. Big difference. Also, you got all the Canadian Islands in Lake Huron and Lake Superior.
  • Got the New York Part, but could I get some land (like a 50 mile radius) around Detroit. As of now, my capital is bordering Pennsylvania and I'm a little Worried...
  • I thought we signed a non-aggression pact, but you can have a buffer zone, anyway. :) ~MP
  • New York: New York prepares for the first presidential election which will be held in two turns. Meanwhile, more urbanization and industrialization occurs, and architects in New York City begin work on very tall buildings called "skyscrapers." More ironclads are introduced to the navy, bringing the total to twelve. New York's population is greatly increased and the Republic now contains four states: New York, Southeast Vermont, New Sweden, and Erie. New York asks if it can buy Southern New Jersey and/or the Erie Triangle from Pennsylvania. New York also sends trade agreements and alliances to European nation out there. President Seward asks permission from Pennsylvania to move armies through their new Ontario land if necessary.
  • Can we jack Alaska from the Russians now or not?
  • U.S. Diplomacy: We are not interested in selling anything right now.
  • Federated States: The FSA send forces into Missouri with hopes of increasing the territory now that war with the Brits is over. A quarter of the states is under FSA control so far. Also the FSA is getting more resources now they are trading with New York and Massachusetts. The FSA Navy built the first sea ship called the FSS Chicago. Before going to sea they had to ask permission from Michigan, US, New York, RNE, and Mass for permission to sail in their waters. The capital city of Chicago is expanding at a fast pace with more industry in the city. Also construction has begun on a new capital building and a new executvie mansion with the limestone from Indiana. Meanwhile, more infrastructure is being developed and a railway between the FSA and Kentucky has been started. .
  • Texas: Since Great Britain just attacked one of its allies, Texas offers an alliance with France and Spain. Texas moves troops into southern Missouri, hoping to gain a foothold on the Mississippi. Troops head north and east, capturing Kansas city and heading towards the Mississippi in the southern part of the state. The railroad to Phoenix is complete, and telegraph poles are to be installed along them, establishing a more effective communication link with California.
    • Federated States Diplomacy: How about we split Missouri. You take the south and the FSA will take the north with the promise of open access in the Mississippi River.
  • Virginia: Virginia declares war on North Carolina and invades the northeastern part of the state as well as the Outer Banks. President Lee calls on Kentucky to invade Tennessee. After the Anglo-Virginian War, the ranks of the Air Scout Corps flood with volunteers. The new repeater is now issued to all troops and the Bomber Division Command is created. President Lee begins campaigning for reelection and is expected to win in a landslide.
    • Kentucky Diplomacy: We agree to invade, and invade the most Western part of the nation.
  • Republic of New England: The RNE now has five states in it Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Vermont, and New Lawrence. Roads, railroads, and telegraph lines are built in New Lawrence, connecting it to the rest of the country. Reconstruction begins. The cities of Montreal and Quebec City are incorporated in the countries metro systems, being key railroad and road intersections.
  • Massachusetts: With the army still mobilized at 4% of total population, Mass sails through the Great Lakes, and lands 50,000 troops in Michigan, while mobilizing another 5,000 in the 1st Air Force, and 28,000 of the 3rd Naval Corps. They then suggest that the Northern Alliance attack Michigan.
    • You need the algorithm because you are not going to control all of Michigan in three months.
    • Wait up, the NFR is an ally of both New York and the Pacific Republic, who is an ally of California, a major ally of the Pacific Republic, New York, and Pennsylvania. Michigan I understand, we'd just blow their socks off, but the NFR? Whoa, not a good idea.
    • Point Taken. Invades Michigan, not the NFR.
  • Confederate States of Dixie: The CSD invades Georgia and takes Atlanta, and unless an algorithm is needed, Georgia is occupied after its surrender and annexed by the CSD. The CSD also invades Lousiana and Arkansas and begins to conquer the former States.
    • Yes, you need the algorithm. No cheating because I will review it.
    • Can you please do one, I'm very bad with algorithms.
    • You : 26. Georgia : 27. So close. As for Arkansas and Louisiana, you just got yourself whooped, so you might want to pull out. PS as Louisiana's ally (Texas), I will be obligated to attack you.
    • Also, if California gets involved, beware the entanglement of alliances!
  • United States: The Unites States, with more territory under its belt, launches an invasion of Delaware. Soldiers march into the Delmarva peninsula, and ironclads attack them. If anyone askes, we do have a legitimate reason for attacking, so don't worry. The state is expected to fall soon.
  • So what is this legitimate reason? Delaware was previously an ally if I am correct.
  • We were never allies, we just partitioned Maryland. The reason was a territorial dispute between Pennsylvania and Delaware that was only resolved in the 1900s I believe. Perfect and legitamate reason here.

1863.50

  • This game is moving pretty fast!
  • Mod Event 1: The British Empire loses colonies worldwide to France and Spain, starting the end of Pax Brittanica. Historians were formerly predicting a "Pax America," but now, views are shifting to either a "Pax Francia" or "Pax Hispania."
  • Mod Event 2: A revolution in Arkansas establishes an anti-slavery government. All slave owners are trashed in the Mississippi and all slaves are freed and educated.
  • New York: New York asks Michigan if it can buy the part of Ontario it was given by the French. (You know, the triangular patch of land near my land.) New York establishes a subway system underground with trolleys. Research begins into mobile carriages that move themselves without horses. (That's right, we're working on cars.) New York Day is celebrated again with large festivities. A new anthem is adopted, the March of Glory. (It sounds like OTL's "Hail to the Chief." I originally wanted to use Star Wars's "Imperial March," but I decided against it.)
    • Car will not be allowed at least until when it was invented in OTL.
    • Research. That means we're looking into cars. That doesn't mean we're selling them to everyone.
    • Ford didn't begin research until 1893. You can research it, but you cannot invent it until it was invented in OTL.
    • ...That's what I said in the first place.
    • Okay. Just clarifying. I'm just afraid one person is gonna be like 'We have airplanes now' in 1870 and go all implausible on us.
    • Don't worry I don't think we have anyone like that.
  • Proposed Division
    Kentucky: The army continues to invade and attack Tennesse. We propose the following map with Virgina:
  • Taco, please use the algorithm. Also, Tennessee is part of North Carolina now. Just because it does not have a player does not means you can beat it up.
  • I know, I was just proposing a division, not taking it. I thought when Virginia asked me to invade Tennessee, I thought he meant NC. And last but not least, I will make an algorithm.
  • Carolina: The Carolinians have now sucsessfully taken over the southern mountainous, central, and coastal regions of NC. they will split it with Virginia and Kentucky. (We get southern parts of mountains).
  • Great Plains Republic: Major Infrastructure and Military improvements are made, The Government is starting to fund research and are opening a couple of Universities around the Repubic to help keep up the Technologiacl Advancement. The government strongly encourges and Funds Field Agricultural and Military Weaponary Study.
    • Federated States Diplomacy: The FSA offers a trade agreement and an alliance with the Great Plains Republic.
    • Great Plains Republic Diplomacy: The GRP agrees to the Trade and Alliance Agreement.
  • Federated States: The FSA is slowly making progress against Missouri, however, the war effort is now focus on the northern half of the state. Meanwhile, the Federated Congress passed a bill that will changed the amount of the states in the FSA. Illinois will be divided into three states (North Illinois, Centralia, and South Illinois). Also the new capital building and the new executive mansion is being built. It will be called the Lake House since it is near Lake Michigan. Meanwhile, the rail linking Federated States and Kentucky is making progress.
    • Mass D: Offers help, sending 20000 troops to attack Missouri.
  • Massachusetts: Continues invasion of Michigan. Starts building more factories, and attaches powerful propellers to balloons to help movement. Establishes a tram system throughout Boston and several other cities, like Montreal. Offers aid and a trading alliance to the new Arkansas government.
    • New York Response: New York declares war on and invades Michigan. Besieging Lansing and other major cities, New York demands Northern Michigan, the Upper Peninsula and the part of Ontario that Michigan got.
      • Quick question, exactly why are you invading Michigan? Just wondering, no malice intended.
      • New York will invade everyone sooner or later to restore the Union.
      • I was thinking in fact, maybe - since our overall goal is to conquer all of America (and maybe a little more...) the northern alliance (and possibly the FSA) should conquer all other states then simply unite... and yeah, all claims agreed to.
    • ​Federated Response: Neutrality (since the Federated States is allied with New York and Michigan), however, to prevent this from spreading faster into a general American war, President Yates asks all parties to meet in Chicago to discuss ways to prevent this from getting out of hand.
    • Mass Response: We will attend but will continue the invasion nevertheless. Insists that the invasion of Missouri is discussed as well.
  • Republic of New England: The RNE declares neutrality in the Michigan conflict. Farms and factories are built all over the country, including New Lawrence, farms primarily in the country side and factories in Montreal and Quebec City. Factories are stepped down from full time war production, to peace time production. Though liberator rifles, liberator snipers, artillary, ammo are still produced to keep the growing military in shape and supplied. The country prepares for the nations first election next year. The premiere universities in the country (Yale, Brown, Dartmouth, and Universite Laval) report record attendance. Research on all matters of technology is started.
  • Texas: Texas quickly declares war on the Confederation of Dixie for its war on its ally, Louisiana. Troops are deployed to the Mississippi river and prepare for combat. Meanwhile, Texas continues its invasion of Missouri. Invasion is expected to be complete by September (next turn). An alliance and trade agreement is offered to the Great Plains Republic. Meanwhile, Texas sends a proposal to Arkansas, offering to annex the state on the grounds that Arkansas will remain slave-free.
    • Federated States Diplomacy: Also has troops in Missouri.. Will control the northern part of Missouri with exchange of open access to the Mississippi River.
    • Texan Diplomacy: Texas agrees
    • Mass Diplomacy: We sent 20000 troops to Missouri, aiding the FSA invasion... so this should be a three way split.
  • Michigan: Ask is helped from FSA as we have an alliance and the United States. The New York and Massachusetts Troops are push back to the Michigan Borders and martial law is declared. The navy is sent to Guard the Great Lakes and now river travel to Detroit from Lake Erie is impossible (It's a river and a ship sinking in it would make it impossible to travel up or down.). Henry Ford starts a horse carriage company. It sends representatives to Chicago for talks.
  • Ford was just born.
  • By algorithm, New York and Massachusetts would almost indefinitely and undoubtedly defeat Michigan.
  • How on Earth are we pushed back to the borders? This is at most a 6-month total victory, just saying ... so really in another turn Michigan should be annexed. Whats the result as it stands now?
  • Florida: The Floridians declare themselves neutral in the current War in Michigan. The FDF continues to modernize and train heavily. The Florida Legislature formally asks Georgia to join with Florida (RNG please). The FDF launches the FSS Everglades from Jacksonville. The FSS Everglades and FSS Jacksonville, along with a host of smaller ships (20) captured during its acquisition of ships during its secession, moves into Georgian waters in an attempt to stop the CSD's ships in Georgian waters from attacking the Georgian cities.
  • RNG: No.

1863.75

  • World Event: Massachusetts and New York continue to invade Michigan. They will only stop if Michigan cedes land to both of them.
  • (As a question from me, Scrawland, why are you invading Michigan, GunsadGlory? It is too far away to effectively govern because so many nations stand between you and Michigan. New York's goal is to restore the Union.)
  • Same reason.. I was hoping that open passage of the Great Lakes (because all who border it are either are allies or we could defeat) would allow governance.
  • New York: New York continues to invade Michigan. Meanwhile, the first Presidential Elections are held and William H. Seward and Luther Bradish are elected President and Vice President respectively. New York tightens its grip on the Great Lakes near it and only allows allies to pass through. New York again agrees to a peace if Michigan will cede land to New York.
  • CSD: The CSD apologizes and asks for a pre-war status quo with Louisiana and its allies. The CSD offers Florida a deal to split Georgia between Florida and the CSD.
  • Louisiana: Louisiana battles to push CSD out. Louisiana demands that, unless the CSD immediately ceases all wars and pursues a non-aggression pact with Arkansas, the war will continue.
  • The CSD was never in Missouri...besides, the CSD also left Louisiana.
  • I'm sorry, I meant Arkansas.
  • Carolina: Raleigh is captured, and Carolinian troops are advancing on Albermarle sound. They also invade Tennessee, and are advancing on Chattanooga.
  • Oh shoot. I didn't even realize South Carolina was in North Carolina. My invasion into NC is nullified by myself CommanderOfTheFourthReich 22:49, May 1, 2012 (UTC)
    • CSD Diplomacy: The CSD offers Carolina deal splitting Georgia between Carolina and the CSD.
    • Carolina diplomacy: We accept.
    • CSD Diplomacy: Should we both invade it now? If so, the CSD invades Georgia and begins to conquer the state while CSD troops invade western Tennessee and begin to conquer it, with most of western Tennessee falling with ease. Here is the border offer: Bh
    • Woah. Hold up now, Kentucky and Virginia have invaded NC. We are already here.
  • Florida: The Floridians withdraw their navy from Georgia after they refuse uniting. The Florida legislature puts a 70% tariff on all Georgian goods and begins mobilizing the FDF. The Floridians begin to build the first highway system in the US. The planned "Golden Road" is from St.Augustine to Jacksonville to Tallahassee. The Floridian Legislature sells several thousand acres of land to large cattle owners to procure more money for the highway.
  • United States: The United States defeats the forces of Delaware, placing the area under temporary military control. The military is build up in case New York attempts anything, although relations are meant to remain cordial.
  • FSA Diplomacy: Offers an alliance and a trade pact.
    • Mass D: Promises to declare war on any one who breaks the Northern Alliance. No offence meant to any side, this is just meant to reassure them. Any preemptive assault will be seen as aggressive and war declared.
    • United States Diplomacy: @FSA, we accept.
  • Michigan-Michigan Troops lose the new land in Central Ontario but battle strong elsewhere. Massachusetts Troops are being fought back well. New Yorkers is the other way around and now barricades are set up a draft occurs, raising military strength. A armistice proposed with New York with New York gaining Michigan's Central Ontario but we must have a ten year non-aggression pact. Help is asked from FSA and United States to stop these expansionist nations.
    • FSA Diplomacy: Will send a division of troops to key ares of Michigan with the hopes of stopping the New York and Mass invasion. The FSA offers this proposal, Land for peace. Michigan will have portion of Southern Ontario (currently held by New York) and New York will have Central Ontario (currently held by New York). Privately if all sides reject the offer the FSA offers Michigan statehood with the current President as Vice President of the FSA, then Yates won't run for re-election the Vice President can run for the President of the FSA.
    • Mass D: Suggests that the hostilities stop, with New York in control of Ontario, Mass in control of the western peninsula, and Michigan in control of the rest. Notes that the FSA actions suggest hostility, so...
  • Kentucky: North Carolina is finally defeated, and Kentucky annexes the area it conquered. With the nearby areas conquered, Kentucky begins to relax and the army begins to be stationed 'round the nation for defensive reasons. Kentucky promises its neighbors that this will be its last war on conquest, and begins to build up its industry.
  • Federated States: The Federated States has now conquered the northern part of Missouri. President Yates promises to end the fighting for now since the public of the Federated States is getting tired of war, however, with the situation with New York, Massachusetts, and Michigan forces are on high alert. The rail linking Chicago and the Kentucky is getting close to the Kentucky border. They ask the Government of Kentucky in where the rail can go or if they want to meet a central point to link the rail. The Lake House and the new Capitol Building is getting built at a record pace. It should be completed next sometime in 1864. New universities is built up and research is increased.
  • CSD ANNOUNCEMENT!!! The CSD offers the nations formed after America's fall a conference to split up the former USA.
  • Virginian Response: Virginia says it will attend.
  • Floridian Response: Florida will attend.
  • CSD Diplomacy: We will obviously attend. It's on the talk page.
  • RNE Diplomacy: The RNE will attend.
  • FSA: The FSA will attend..
  • GPR: Great Plains will attend.
  • Mass: Will attend
  • Republic of New England: The RNE creates the New England Rail Line. The NERL will have several lines of tracks for both commercial and industrial use that will connect from the farthest corner of New Lawrence to the ends of Connecticut and Rhode Island. President Buckingham authorizes the construction of a great ship powered by sail and coal to show the might and glory of the RNE Construction begins immediately in the ships yards of Groton, CT.
  • Great Plains Republic: GPR Condems New York and Massachusetts for the Invasion of Michigan ands sends food aid to Michigan Also ask France to give independence to the Territories they took from Great Britain. Meanwhile, Agricultural and military research is Amped up, Infrastructure is improved and Rail line is being set up. GPR accepts Texas proposals.
  • Virginia: A black man receives the Medal of Honor, the first to do so. Thomas Washington single handedly destroyed a Gatling gun nest and dragged a dozen wounded comrades to safety. Attitudes towards blacks begin to change after this with a majority of whites protesting for more rights for blacks. In response, President Lee grants blacks full citizenship, the right to vote ,and increased wages. Although still slaves, they don't seem to mind their situation due to their new rights and increased pay. The General Assembly passes into law the Slave Family Protection Act. This law specifies that families in the slave trade are a package deal and cannot be separated. The law also states that already separated families must be allowed to see each other as often as possible. Slave Protection Services (SPS) is created to enforce the new laws as well as look into the abuse of slaves. Maternity Leave is created for for pregnant slaves as well as whit women. Due to the recent educational reform, 75% of slaves are now educated. These slaves are asked if they would like to continue on and get a more advanced education to which a massive 93% agree. The Interracial Cooperation League (ICL) is created and membership sky rockets with 20,000 blacks and 15,000 whites signing up in the first week. In other news, the Trans Virginia Railway is created, running from Virginia Beach through Richmond and out to West Virginia.
  • California: California praises Virginia for their increase in equal rights. Meanwhile, the military is expanded, and construction on roads connecting major cities of California and Nevada begin. Meanwhile, California ends construction on the Pacific Wall.
  • Massachusetts: Continues invasion of Michigan, making good progress, estimates collapse in a half year at most. Agrees that they will stop if the entire Upper Peninsula is ceded to them. Commends Virginia for their equal rights stand. Builds a new railroad to connect all of Massachusett's holdings. Asks the RNE for permission to build a tunnel under their territory.
  • WTH? You are SEA invading us, you would lose hard in algorithm, New York okay maybe but still. Also, should we get an algorithm.
  • No, we aren't. We're landing in NY and THEN attacking, so it is still an invasion and because NY is helping, our troops are with them so ... And we do have one. I think. What are the results?
  • Pacific Republic: The Pacific Republic condemns New York and Massechussetts for the invasion of Michigan. Aid is sent to Michigan. Meanwhile, the navy is amped up.
  • Massachusetts Diplomacy: ... Please note the lack of condemnation when California and Texas went on expansion spree early on. Why? Because they could wipe the floor with you.
  • I'm sorry, I only just started playing as the Pacific Republic.
  • But we can also justify it with the fact that there was no real government in that situation, that it was just an unorgaized territory. Even in the case of Missouri, there was no active government. And Oklahoma was a gift. You are attacking a state with a legitimate government who has reached out and interacted with others. And you know what? Texas condemns the act also.
    • ​Yeah, but the point of the game is to unite everyone. And ... uhh ... that happens via conquest. And my bad about the condemnation, I wasn't trying to offend anyone.
    • It's OK, but you do mean that you are condemning two allies?
    • That may be the goal of the game for you, but we are creating an alternate history, which does not have to end in continental (or world) domination.
    • Umm ... you may notice that it says, at the very top, victory means the ultimate rebirth of the USA. At this point, nothing progresses.
    • That's the old intro that SPQR wrote. Besides, how does that influence gameplay? I'm trying to be victorious, but not by recreating the USA, by staying my own independent country
      Missouri Proposal

      Blue - Texas Green - FSA

  • Texas:Texas proposes the division of Missouri with the FSA (to right). Massachusetts, we did not ask for you help, you are not aligned with either of us, and Missouri is too far away to be governed properly, so you are not represented on this map. Texas also offers the annexation of Arkansas on the grounds that they will remain slave-free.
  • SA Diplomacy: Accepts the offer. Also offer a trade policy and an alliance with Texas.
  • Texan Diplomacy: Texas accepts.

  • Texas: Texas demands that New York and Massachusetts stop attacking Michigan and demands status quo ante bellum. There was little to no justification for the attack, which means that there is no reason for New York and Massachusetts to be attacking Michigan. Imperialistic actions will be a cause for war. Attack of another stable and legitimate government must not be allowed. Texas begins to take advantage of the Texan-Californian railroad for trading purposes. Texas proposes a railway linking California', Texas, and Louisiana. Factories begin to increase output of weapons and wartime supplies. Meanwhile, Texas also creates its own Air Corps, which will begin with 20 hot air balloons.
    • Federated States Diplomacy: The Federated States proposes a railway linking Texas and the Federated States. Also about forming an Mid-American alliance with Kentucky, Michigan, and other states in the middle North America to form an new alliance.
    • Oh, I thought we did that last turn. But, in the case that we didn't, sure, we can have an alliance.
    • Correction, I should have invited Texas, Kentucky, Michigan and other states to form a Mid-America Alliance.
    • Sure. However, I would like to invite California also, so could we make it just an American Alliance?
    • I'm fine with that.
    • New York: There is a reason. We're trying te reunite the Union. As to Massachusetts, we don't know.
    • Massachusetts: Same bloody reason. And I've said so, note. Speaking of Which, though status quo ante bellum is out, the current status quo would be acceptable to Mass. I can't speak for NY, but I'm pretty sure NY would agree. In addition, then, Mass won't expand until 1900 exept if any allies are attacked. Finally, a non aggression pact (tantamount to an alliance) would be offered to the American Aliiance, as well as a trade alliance.
  • Federated States: The Federated states is looking for ways to stop the New York and Massachusetts invasion of Michicgan. The Federated States sends the FSS Illinois and the FSS Enterprise near the Upper Peninsula to point out that they are near Meanwhile, the factories is getting more effcient and putting out equal amount military and civilan goods. Meanwhile, later in 1864, the Federated States will start the Air Corp. Meanwhile, in Missouri, things are rough. The Federated States outlawed slavery in that territory. The government setup special schools so former slaves can get a decent education and learn a skill. However, former slave owners are upset and trying to liberate Missouri. Right now the state of Missouri is under military control. There is talk of splitting up the state so the pacified areas can have representation. President Yates said no. Missouri will be a single state.
  • Michigan Troops fight back the foreigners back with help from other nations. It is now back at pre-war borders will the support. It joins the Mid-American Alliance which puts more nations behind it. Troops continue to march into the face of battle. The people moral skyrocket and it is now the frontrunner on land but losing at the sea. It ask for foreign troops to defend Michigan.
    • Federated Diplomacy: The Federated States will send two army divisions to be stationed near the borders and will send the FSS Illinois and the FSS Enterprise near the Upper Peninsula with the Marines on the ships.
    • Massachusetts Diplomacy: We'll back off for control of Ontario or the Northern Peninsula.
    • New York Diplomacy: New York needs Ontario. (Duh, it borders New York) and demands control of the Upper Peninsula. Massachusetts can have full control of the waterways because they have expressed no legitimate reason for invading Michigan while New York wants to reunite the Union.
    • I'm fed up with this. New York and Massachusetts would have won with no question, using the algorithm. If Michigan refuses to give up, we'll just follow the rules and split Michigan among ourselves BECAUSE WE WOULD HAVE WON.
    • But, you have to remember, Michigan also has people backing them now. If it came to an algorithm, each side would have one algorithm per country, the points for each side totaled, and the higher number would win. In this case, Michigan has (at least) Texas, California, and the Federated States behind them.
    • California and the FSA would have to remain neutral because NY is an ally of both and the FSA and Mass are also allies. Meanwhile, the FSA is also an ally of Michigan. However, New York is the strongest nation in this war, with the algorithm for New York totaling over 1000. Texas, fine, Texas can help Michigan. Besides, if the FSA joins Michigan, New York can invade and take at least Indiana. Not the best idea here to fight against the Coalition. (New York and Massachusetts.)
    • I would say Massachutes would lose with a sea invastion. New York another story. But if you ally with two nations at war, it is an allied nation's duty to defend that nation, period.
    • I'm invading for the EXACT SAME REASON Scraw. And I stated it. As for the Sea invasion, Mass and NY combined would steamroll over Michigan, and Amphbious invasions get plus 2 for the attacker according to the algorithm. And I meant that we would give Ontario to you - that was the coalition together.
    • Scraw, you do realize that alliances can be broken, right? If you are doing something, they don't have to remain allies with you. BTW, I was talking about the war algorithm, not the nation algorithm. Not to mention that you don't even have a nation page, which, I thought you did. Anyway, even totaled, there is no way that you could get over 1000. With more people, we could toast you.
    • We are doing nothing wrong. We are fighting in the name of good and uniting a failed nation. And, you have made a grave error: NEW YORK has more than 2.3 million people and Mass is also heavily populated.
    • Should I be concerned? That makes little difference in the war algorithm. Have you even looked at it?
  • Republic of New England: The RNE holds its first elections in the history of the nation. The winner is James Smith of Rhode Island wins the race, his vice president is Roger Averill of Connecticut.

  • CSD: The CSD invades Tennessee to claim its land agreed uon with the other borders, while CSD troops invade Georgia and begin to conquer the land up to the agreed upon borders with the other nations. The CSD then offers Texas an offer to divide Arkansas between the two nations:

      Untitleds
  • Massachusetts: Launches another 10000 troops to Michigan, and warns the FSA that further troops movements to Michigan will be considered war. Pulls all troops from the lower peninsula, staying and holding ONLY Ontario and the Upper Peninsula. Offers peace for control of the above to be split between NY and Mass. Starts building tunnel under RNE to have a transport system connecting ALL of the colonies.
  • Michigan Diplomacy-Want Peace? Pre-War Borders and non-agreesion pact.

The United States invites New York officials to come to the dedication ceremony of the Hamilton Memorial when it is completed.
    • Texan Diplomacy: Texas wishes to know the United States' opinion of the attack on Michigan.
    • NY D: New York requests the help of the US in exchange for Southern Michigan. New York also agrees to attend the Opening of the Hamilton Memorial.

A lot of Factories are built, Industrialization, Urbanization and Militarization begins in the GPR. Military and Industrial Agricultural Ambitions are being achieved under President Jameson.
  • So, is Michigan defeated yet? I think so.
  • I say not because I now have military support and a large alliance. Could we get an algorithm?
  • Doesn't matter, only Texas will help them, and they have no real way of getting to Michigan. Best they can do is launch a fail attack on Mass or NY.
  • And the FSA has troops here. And Texas could send troops through the FSA.
  • The FSA will help Texas in any way possible..
  • Carolina: Georgian resistance is crushed. they are nearly taken over. Carolinian troops meet CSD troops near Atlanta.
  • Federated States: The slave owners rebellion is slowly going away in Missouri. There is a prediction that the slaves owners will end the rebellion sometime late in 1864 or early in 1865. Former slaves is slowly intergraing into society. Some is joing the FSA army, going to various cities with potential opportunity for work, or start their own farm. There is a new Air Corp division with five balloons. Also Federated States is looking for ways to shoot down the balloons. Also finally the Federated army has a Gatling gun. Meanwhile, the Federated army sends more troops to Michigan. This time to the lower peninsula. President Yates spoke to a joint session of Congress stating that Michigan has been with us since our beginning we will stand by Michigan. He pleads to the good people of New York and Mass to stop this foolish venture. Meanwhile, the Federated Navy sends the FSS Chicago near the Upper Peninsula near Lake Superior.
    • Mass Response: Michigan's all gone to hell. By now, Mass and NY have won, methinks. Anyway, all we want is control of the Upper Peninsula.
    • 'Michigan-How can you been successfully invading us when you have no border to us or access to us?
    • I have no idea how Mass would defeat you, but New York has a REALLY BIG border with Michigan.
    • New York Response: This is not a foolish venture, we've won by now, we've been fighting three turns and Michigan was really weak the first two turns. Anyway, we'll offer peace in exchange for the Upper Ontario, and part of the Lower.
  • Kentucky: More industry is built up. Meanwhile, we ask Virginia, the FS, and Carolina if they want to form the American Alliance. It will protect members from aggressors who want to conquer all of America. It would also allow any other nations to join it.
    • Federated States: Actaully the Mid America Alliance will soon change to the American Alliance if California joins the Alliance.
    • KD: I guess I will join that alliance instead.
  • Michigan-The help is no good and the forgin New York Troops capture the Upper Peninsula. In order to prevent chaos. All men 19-25 must serve and fight. The government is asked to operate from Chicago. In an emergency resolution, a law is made that if a half of the lower peninsula is captured, it will join the FSA or USA. whichever helps more.
    • Federated States: Will move the troops from the Upper Peninsula to the Lower Peninsula and accepts Michigans offer that it can operate from Chicago. President Yates ask Michigan to join the FSA. He thinks the US will invade what is left of Michigan. Will accomandate you in anyway we can.

  • Yes, I did use the algorithm, it was overwhelming against Florida, Mexico wants to expand and sees Florida as an easy target and weak as well as great for Tourism, it wants to keep some countries on its good side, and since the CSA is the rising star in the old eastern USA, it would like to keep on its good side.

  • GD, I was hoping that would go thru.
  • CL, there is a Quebec. France gave independence to it. Please read the nations section and look at the map before making rash decisions like that. Also, I must say again: THE REMAINDER OF CANADA IS OWNED BY FRANCE!!! FRANCE!!! - Scraw
  • Since when was it given independence? I don't remember reading anything about that. And it wasn't rash, I had (and still have) no idea that Quebec was independent. Last I heard, Eastern Canada was French and Western Canada was up for grabs. - Courageous
  • OK. Now you know.
  • But what is controlled by France and what is independent?
  • The gray stuff of the map that is in present-day Canada.
  • Massachusetts: Gets a new currency, the Massachusetts Dollar, to prevent inflation from other states using the United States dollar. Decides to attack Cuba, and masses up its air force and navy. Starts to develop a socialist agenda (hahaha). Asks the RNE if Mass can buy Connecticut and Rhode Island.
  • Their capital is in Connecticut. And Cuba? That's light years away, LOL.
  • I'm not a mod or anything, but what do you mean by "air force?"
  • He did something like people on hang gliders shooting people from above or something a few turns ago.
  • New England: The RNE must reject Massachusetts request to buy Connecticut and Rhode Island, as the capital is in Connecticut, and we don't want to lose land either. Congress unveils the country's new currency, The New English Dollar, the currencies are printed and minted and spread around the country. Citizens US Dollars are replaced by the NE equivalent for free. President Averil proposes creating an organization were nations can meet and discuss issues. He names it The League of Nations (OTL UN). All nations are invited.

The Federated States suggested there should be a standard exchange rate between each nations. In the election Abram A. Hammond of Indiana won the election.

Talk begins about spliting the state of Texas into two or more separate states. Texas adds five new ships and five new subs to its navy.
    • FSA Dip: FSA will invade the CSA from the north. Will we be taking the CSA land permanently??
    • I'm thinking we play it (landwise) like Germany and Austria-Hungary in wwi. We take some land, and break up the rest into independent states.
  • Impossible to take Nevada and Deseret so quickly. Also, a few turns ago, Texas said it would not invade functioning nations for the sake of conquest. Just saying.
  • Texas didn't invade for conquest, it invaded because deseret declared war on its ally, California. And, just because you asked so nicely, I bumped it back a turn.
  • Greater Colorado Coloradan generals realize the efficiency of Gatling guns, and form 'Gatl

    • Texan Diplomacy: If you ask for peace, then why are you continuing to build up your military?
    • CSA Diplomacy: When I said that, I meant build up defenses should peace talks fail.
    • Texan Diplomacy: What will you offer up for peace?

  • Greater Colorado creates the world's first scouting organisation with the Greater Colorado Boy Scouts. Boys all over the country flock to recruiting posts. Their uniform resembles the Army uniforms; Olive Drab Kepi, Olive Drab wool tunic, and green cotton pants. The army adopts Henry rifles and Prussian breech-loading weapons. New tactics are researched for more modern, faster, more accurate weapons. Colorado Credits and centicredits are steady in value, for they are made of metals, which are worth more than paper money.
  • Northern Federal Republic: The three-fourths of Wyoming ceded to the NFR is annexed into the state of Wyoming. However, due to the very low population of the nation, immigration to the new state is very low. To combat this President Custer passes the "Northern Land Reform Act" which offers large amounts of land to people immigrating to the NFR. Thousands of immigrants flood in from nations east to claim they're own farmland/mining territory. Meanwhile, the military is upgraded, introducing repeating rifles as the standard rifles along with gatling guns. The navy is also updated, making the NFR Defense Fleet a total of fifteen ships. Mining in East Montana is amped up so that millions of dollars of minerals are unearthed every week.

The FSA also began construction of rail terminals in Columbus and Cincinnati to prepapre for the transconinental railroad. Also the Federated States is asking permission from various countries to build embassies in various North American countries.
    • NFR Dip: We realize your intention of creating a Political Union is very good hearted. However, we feel that having it named the Federated States would make us appear as if we have become a subject-state. Perhaps if you more clearly explained "political union" we may join. We will, however, allow you to build an embassy in Keystone and ask also to build an embassy in Chicago.
    • FSA Dip: We should discuss this further. What we propose is a Federal Union of equals partners. Why the Federated name, in case other nations would like to join us. If you do join, there will be a new Constitution, all people serving in both militaries will keep the ranks and current assingments. Also if the political union is agreed, it will take affect and the current President won't be the President of the new Federated States of America. You have permission to build an embassy in Chicago.
    • NY Dip: New York has a great suggestion name: The Republic of North American Federated States.
    • NFR Dip: So you and me would both control this one nation? Or would we be two individuals working under the same banner, like the Confederation of the Rhine?

HALF OF YOU ARE LEANING ON SONORA AND YUCATAN, THE TWO STRONGEST. What the hell is Veracruzano? A bad attempt at sounding Mexican-ish? Obviously. Stop this infernal ridiculousness immediately before some powerful fellow whacks the life out of your nations. Also, stop going after the Mormons: New York 1850s: Protestants kicked them out; Illinois, same; Utah, finally there own. And then, because they stood up for their Nevadan ally, they got crushed to dust? They fled to the new nation of Durango, which is a now THE Mormon nation. And they've gotten really strong by now, trust me. And you Mexicans! You're not invading your allies are you? NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Texas is not attacking you, just advising you not to expand upon nations with legitimate stable governments. We have demonstrated this and are determined to stand by our principles, allies or not. Also, who wrote the rant?

  • Carolina: Carolina
    Georgian military district
    organizes occupied areas of Georgia into a single military district. they do not fully assimilate it because a peace treaty has not yet been ratified with the CSA. They hold elections. the new president is very isolationist.
