This history follows the actual chain of events, up unto 1783. The Colonies of the New World signed the declaration of independence in July of 1776, and the British sent over a large invasion force to fight the revolutionaries. Things looked up for the revolutionaries until the battle of Princeton in January of 1777. The British seemed heavily outnumbered, and the revolutionaries charged, with Washington leading the forces. However, a sudden attack from the east of loyal colonists flanked the attacking force and left Washington isolated from the bulk of his army. Washington was killed in the following confusion, and his head was mounted on a pole. The remaining troops were so demoralized that the British were able to defeat them despite their inferior numbers. General Merce was also killed in the battle, leaving the remaining troops directionless.

With the revolution suddenly thrown into doubt, the Americans were leaderless. The British continued their sweep through the northern colonies, and the South submitted once more to colonial rule after their defeat at the Battle of Camden.

The support of the people now firmly gained, the would-be Americans and colonists joined forces and repelled the French invaders. Napoleon himself sailed to attack at York Town in 1814, and was subsequently defeated there. with the French Empire in disarray following his death, the British began a new campaign through the late 1810s in Latin America, claiming French Guyana and much of modern Venezuela. George III became known as George of the Spice rack following his incredible charge at the battle of Cayenne. With the collapse of the French empire in 1820, Britain entered nearly a century of global supremacy. The Japanese empire flourished in the far east, but this was of little concern to the British colonists. The invention of the Rifled arquebus, often shortened to Rifle, played a large part in Britain's campaigns. The colonialist forces were much better equipped than the Native Americans as they continued the campaign westwards. Colonel Custer, himself, made use of a specially adapted one in many battles.The Spanish colony of Mexico had flourished during the years of the Battle of Independence, and dispute over the Republic of Texas arose.
