|Vox populi||United States|
|Casualties and losses|
In 1960 the civil rights movement was falling apart. Protests were ruthlessy put down. Civil rights leaders were assassinated. Radical civil rights supporters formed the vox populi, a revolutionary group aimed to liberate the oppressed. The Militant group was responsible for attacking southern democrats, Ku Klux Klan, bombing of governmental offices. The Vox mostly got support from the lower class, communists, minorities, white sympathizers, military defectors. The us government offered rewards for captured vox members. In response, the vox bombed a bus depot in Birmingham. The U.S government proceeded to execute suspected vox members. This only worsened their situation.
On December 22nd in response to the arrests and executions the vox populi formed an army over 50,000 and attacked the city of Birmingham Alabama. The Vox killed anyone who defended the city and recruited lower class men and African Americans because the city was seen as the center of segregation. The vox proceeded to destroy the city leaving thousands homeless. The attack surprised the nation and the US government soon ordered the military to crush the rebellion. The vox proceeded to attack Fort Rucker to acquire military weapons and vehicles.
Soon, officers in the military defected to the vox populi offering much needed training to make a full fledged army. One by one cities were captured by the vox. The US government made their last stand in Washington but most of the the US troops were militiamen who were poorly trained and all of their military vehicles were either captured or destroyed. On January 14, the vox populi attacked the well defended city. The US troops put up a heavy fight against the infantry but was helpless against tanks. Since they had no anti-tank weapons or air force, the battle continued for three days before the US surrendered. The treaty of Washington was signed and as a result, the US lost all of the northern and western states and was forced to relocate down south.
