The United States was founded in 1776 when the 13 colonies of the British Empire revolted against the Empire. With Byzantine/French aid, the Americans were victorious, and Benedict Arnold never defected because of his role in capturing Canada. But there were still problems - namely slavery - and the issue of States Rights, which increased after the Nova Hellena Purchase of 1803 from Byzantium with that of Louisiana from France in the same year. The native American issue, especially after Andrew Jackson vetoed the Indian Removal act, did not help things either, which were excacerbated after US soldiers were ordered to defend the Indian reservation.

Civil War

This all came to a head when the States of Georgia, Florida, Louisiana (covers Arkansas ATL as well), Alabama, Texas, Tennessee and the Carolinas all voted to secede from the Union in 1861. They also claimed the Arizona and New Mexico territories as well as the Colorado, Nevada and Deseret territories.

Fearing what would happen to them, the Cherokee and other Indian tribes went to Abraham Lincoln pledging their full support for the US. Entire "indian Regiments" came under the control of General Robert E Lee, and played a key role in the Battle of Gettysburg.

What happened next took them completely by surprise. The Confederate States of North America came to the aid of the CSA. This emboldened the south, who sent assassins to ambush Abraham Lincoln and his cabinet on June 5, 1863. They were wiped out by snipers, and a Junta of US Army Generals led by Lee Assumed command until formal elections could be held. In 1868, the CSNA surrendered and the USA took a large chunk of territory and ordered $20 Million in war reparations.
