The Virginian-Jacksonian War regional conflict in the former United States. It was sparked by the Jacksonians ejecting the Dixie Alliance contingent from the city-state's limits at gunpoint. Some Virginian political cartoons depict the contingent being lead out of town with their own guns.
There was a short "phoney war" period as the East American Alliance transported its troops to the front. The first real battle of the war was the Battle of the I-40. In which the advancing Alliance troops are attacked by Jacksonian sentries. The "so-called" battle was over in less than ten minutes. However the East American Alliance's army is unable to capitalize on this victory, as they had been marching the entire day. They set up a camp outside Jackson city limits. On the 5th the Virginians returned to the site on the I-40 where their contingent was ejected from the town and issued a statement demanding the Jacksonians turn over their leadership for a war crimes trial. The mayor responded by having the Virginian messenger shot in front of the Dixie Alliance encampment. However, the Jacksonians had no idea that the East American Alliance was surrounding the town while they were concerned with the messenger.
The new offensive started on the 6th as the CKAF's B52s started pounding Jacksonian positions outside the city. Meanwhile, key buildings within the city started getting hit by F105s and F16s from Virginia and Kentucky. The Virginian 101st Airborne Division made a daring Heli-Assault on the inner parts of city. Meanwhile, an East American Alliance Battle Group launched a massive armoured thrust into the city. By the end of the 7th, Jackson had surrendered. The city's mayor was discovered dead in the ruins of his bunker, after a 1000lb Bunker Buster found its mark near the end of the war.
The war left many people in Jackson homeless. Most of the civilian casualties happened when the government of Jackson used them as human shields during the final stages of the battle for Jackson. Kentucky has already pledged to help rebuild homes in Jackson while providing temporary housing in the meantime.
Reactions to the Conflict
The LoN declared their neutrality in the conflict.
The quick victory for the East American Alliance was touted as the first major success for the young East American Alliance. President Jim Bunning described it not as a victory for Kentucky, Virginia, or the East American Alliance as whole but rather for liberty and freedom.
