The Confederacy's independenceEdit
Just before the Second Battle of the Bull Run, the Confederacy still wanted independence, not war. After many failed attempts at peace talks, Jefferson Davis orders General Lee to secretly amass an army near the Maryland border.
They also had General Stonewall Jackson amass the other half, near Kentucky, whose rivers could be decisive in winning battles. General McClellan fell for the ploy, leaving the Union Capital undefended. Then, Lee and his army launched their invasion, the attack came so quickly that the Union troops had no time to react, the small group of 500 soldiers defending the capital were massacred, and the Confederates captured the White House, the Capital, and other major areas.
With the Union now defeated, Davis sent a surprising offer to Lincoln, the Confederates would leave Washington D.C, the South would remain independent, and the war would end. With no other choice, Lincoln signed. After almost a year the war was over.
War of 1862Edit
However, the Union army refused to leave, and continued its attack on the Confederates in Arkansas, and soon, America issued a declaration of War on the Confederates, however, in Europe, tensions exploded. England and recently reunified Germany sympathized with the Americans, highlighting its similarity to their own revolutions, while France and Spain sided with the Confederacy. Russia, who was America's ally, declared war on Spain, France, and the Confederacy, followed by her ally, Serbia.
The Austro-Hungarian empire, Germany's supporter, sided with America, Britain, Germany, Russia, and Serbia. Surprisingly, instead of deploying their forces to Britain and Germany, France and Spain sent their militaries to the Confederacy. This made Britain, Germany, and Russia send their own navies.
As the Confederacy and her allies prepared an invasion of the Union, the Germans launched a surprise attack on the Confederates from America, while Britain, France, and Russia deployed their forces to Kentucky, in an attempt to encircle the Confederates.
In response, the Allies(which was the name given to the alliance of Spain, France, and the Confederacy) launched an invasion of the Entente (America, Britain, Russia, Serbia, and Austria-Hungary) western territories in an attempt to cut them off.
American citizens began to panic, as they had few soldiers in the west, and with the majority of their soldiers trying to take Virginia, the soldiers were forced to protect the valuable territory to the west, especially when confederates placed trenches filled with thousands of Confederates. As the Allies invaded American territory gradually, territories began to fall, Utah, northern Arizona and New Mexio, and much of southern California.
With their own cross-country link, the Confederates launched an invasion of the North. The Entente prepared for their offensive, as the Confederates crossed all the way to Pensylvania and Missouri, cutting the country in two.
Without their southern flank, Lincoln and his cabinet were evacuated to the heavily guarded fortress at Manhattan island. Their, the Allies advanced as far north as New Jersey, where the Entente stopped their advance. Soon however, the Confederacy intercepted the Entente's supplies by blockading the north east and west.
Now they were starving, and the army was starving, which gave no other choice but to discuss an armistice. At the Treaty of Edinburgh, the Confederacy and her Allies gave outrageous terms to the Entente. Britain lost her mighty empire, America lost all her territory that was former slave territory, excluding the Northern half of the Louisiana purchase, and Alaska was given to the Confederacy. Half of California was ceded to the Confederacy, and Germany lost much of her territory to France.
Missouri, Kentucky, Maryland, Delaware, and Utah were now officially part of the Confederacy. All these outrageous terms caused deep resentment towards the Confederacy, a loss of 600,000 soldiers was estimated, aswell as the destruction of an entire empire, which was split between Spain, France, and the Confederacy.
Over the next 40 years, tensions developed between the Entente and the Allies, soon, Britain, Russia, Germany, Austria-Hungary, Serbia, and Italy all signed a pact that meant shared power between the two. By 1914, tensions were again at the breaking point.
World War IEdit
On May 29th, 1914, a German shot the Prime-Minister of France, before the french killed him, he told them "For Germany and her Allies' loss!" On June 1st, 1914, France declared war on Germany. Russia, Austria-Hungary, and Serbia responded by declaring war on France.
Spain, pledged to defend her ally, then declared war on Germany and Russia. Portugal, who was under puppet rule, declared war on Germany on June 6th. Following Spain and France prepared to invade Belgium to get to Germany. England then declared war on Spain and France, and deployed her forces to Germany.
In North America, president Theodore Roosevelt declared war on the Confederacy, Spain, and France. Following this, Confederate President Woodrow Wilson asked for a declaration of war on Britain and Germany, though he initially hoped to avoid war.
Because of the Anglo-German-Russian alliance, they all focused their powers on the front against France. Over 10 million soldiers were deployed to Germany. Because of new technology and old battle tactics, casualties on both sides were heavy. At first, both sides both planned a defensive war, but when it became clear they were not invaded, Spain and France launched a massive invasion to Germany's borders, German troops were prepared for this, and they settled in for a long siege, the two sides faced off for a month.
Unfortunatley, Germany was forced to retreat, after losing 30,000 men. Deciding to strike back, Britain landed in the region of Calais in France, then they swung towards Paris. At the battle of the Marne, French troops stopped the British advance.
In Austria-Hungary, heir Franz Ferdidand sent Austrian troops to back up Germany, and soon the war raged all across Europe, although mostly in Germany and France.
North American TheatreEdit
The war was brought to the U.S when Theodore Roosevelt declared war on the Confederacy, Spain, and France. At first, the Confederates prepared for a defensive war, believing they would easily defeat the U.S, like they did in the last two wars, but America was ready, and launched an invasion of Missouri, Kentucky, Delaware, and Maryland, the Confederates were unprepared for this, and within months, the Confederates had lost all the border states except Virginia.
Deciding to utilize Virginia's position, Roosevelt ordered his troops to invade Arkansas and North Carolina in an attempt to trap Virginia. But the Confederates stopped the union advance at North Carolina, and dug trenches all across the state, forcing the Americans to slowly push in.
In the first series of battles, the Confederacy was victorious, and the Yankees were pushed back to Missouri, where the Confederates began a second wave of invasions. The Americans stopped the advance into Illinois, and the two sides began the slow process of wearing eachother down.
Stalemate in the TrenchesEdit
From 1914 to 1915, the war was at a stalemate, the trench warfare made battles long and heavy in casualties, the battle of the Rhine left 1.2 million casualties, 600,000 Spanish, 300,000 French, 200,000 Germans, and 100,00 English, Despite this, the allies only gained 7 miles.
In North America General Alex F. Lee, son of Robert E. Lee, decided to invade the Union. But Union forces caught wind of this, and launced their own invasion into Tennessee, Lee was pushed back, and soon, the Union had captured Tennessee. Using the occupied state as a staging area, American troops began a massive invasion into the Confederate trenches in Alabama.
Slowly but surely, the Union forces had marched into Florida, leaving the Confederates nearly cut in half. But before they could invade south western Florida, Texas and Louisiana troops from the west, Georgia troops from the east, and Florida troops from the south all launched an attack. This forced the union to splinter their army, leaving them fighting an attack on all sides.
In Europe, fighting was just as heavy, the Allies had penetrated into Germany, and the British were unable to help as they were fighting in western France, Russian, Austro-Hungarian, and Serbian troops were able to relieve the beleagured Germans, and at the Battle of Munich, German-led forces tore apart the advancing Spanish and French from buildings and allies, the battle was a disastrous loss for the Allies, and in January, 1916, the Germans, Russians, and Austro-Hungarians began the long advance into France.
The Tide of War TurnsEdit
In western France, the British took the port city of Dieppe, and they began importing their armanents, soldiers, and supplies in through the port, and the British invasion started to gain momentum, as the French and Spanish began to tire.
In North America, the South became the major theatre of war, with over 5 million casualties, compared with 3 million European Casualties. Off Virginia's coast, the Allied and Entente navies clashed. As the battle wore on, the Allies began taking casualties, forcing them to retreat, the Entente began tracking down the Allied navies, and soon, the naval threat was over, leaving the Confederacy without allied support.
Seeing a golden opportunity, Roosevelt ordered the Allied navies to form a blockade of the south, leaving the Confederacy in a dire situation. Over time, their armies were being ground down by a remorseless offensive by Union, and limited German, British, and Russian assistance, armies.
Soon, the blockade had stopped all resources, and the Confederacy was starving to death, on May 12th, 1917, the Confederates surrendered, though they made it clear they would not join the Union. This had to consequences, firstly, America could now turn her attention from the Confederacy to the European Front, alongside, the British, the Americans began sending their convoys to Dieppe, allowing the English offensive to skyrocket.
The Final BlowEdit
With the surrender of the Confederacy, the defeat of their navy, and the new American boostered invasion, the Allies were in their death throws. The Central and Eastern Entente were advancing in the east, with the british and americans closing in from the west, the French people called for a surrender, and soon, the French Army mutinied, and the Spanish were pushed back into Spain.
On April 8th, 1918, World War 1, came to an end. But at the treaty of Versailes, in November, the Americans blocked the Confederates from framing the treaty. In it, the Entente took their revenge on the French, Spanish, and Confederates.
The confederacy was forced to pay 4 billion dollars in reparation to America, they were forbidden to have an airforce, tanks, or heavy artillery, and their army was limited to 100,000 men. Spain was forced to relinquish her overseas colonies, and she to was given the same limits on her armed forces aswell, and France was forced to relinquish her territories, her army, and airforce.
But the Confederates had one last indignity infllicted upon them, they lost their borders states, Virginia, Missouri, Kentucky, Maryland, and Delaware, and they lost their territories in the west.
The people of America were set free, the western half of the Confederacy was dismembered, out of it, new nations were formed, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, Nevada, and West and East Texas. Eastern Texas was the territory of the old republic of Texas, while Western Texas was the rest.
Not everyone supported the birth of Countries like Nevada, many of the former Confederates felt it was unfair, and that the Union singled out the Confederacy for blame, one day, these tensions would haunt the world again.
Roaring Twenties, Great Depression, and the Rise of DictatorsEdit
After World War I, the americans were reveling in the Euphoria of finally getting revenge on their long time enemies, a booming economy, and even stronger ties with their allies meant the americans were ready for a decade long buying spree, and the relations between Britain and Germany meant an even more diverse melting pot heritage.
But the Confederacy were not nearly as happy, their defeat by America after defeating them twice made them extremely resentful, aswell as the ridicuolous terms placed upon them by the Americans, though they didn't except the fact that they had done the same thing in 1862.
This was ripe ground for a new leader in the CSA, Adolf Hitler. Hitler was born in Alabama, and was of Austrian ancestry, he fought for the Confederacy in World War I, and his fiery determination made him a crowd favorite, but in the increasingly prosperous years from 1920 to 1925, the party Hitler formed, the Imperialists, were reguarded as ruffians and hooligans in the early 20s, but in 1925, the American stock market crashed, and America was forced to cut much of its trade, ignoring protest from the Confederacy, America slashed its imports to the Confederacy and sent them to Germany, Britain, and France.
American-French relations improved after the war, due to the French prime-minister was of American and French ancestry. By the 30s, American had devoted all its trade to Britain, France, and Germany, leaving the Confederacy even more angered.
In 1926, with inflation reaching up to 30% in the Confederacy, Hitler became president of the Confederacy, and a month later, the Confederate senate burned down, blaming the blacks, Hitler demanded emergency powers from the senate, which gave into his demanfs, and dissolved itself, leaving Hitler the sole say in government matters.
The Confederacy rearmsEdit
He focused on rebuilding the Confederate's economy at first, and by 1929, the Confederate's had a much bigger economy then both America and Britain. In 1930, after rebuilding the economy, he ordered a massive amount of industry to be added to the Confederacy's government, aswell as an expansion of the 100,000 strong army to 600,000, 6 times that permitted at Versailes.
Every year, another 100,000 were added. In the navy, the Confederacy ordered an expansion of the small fleet of 6 Destroyers, 8 Frigates, and 5 Cruiserss to be expanded to 20 Destroyers, 15 Cruisers, 30 Frigates, 5 Battleships, and 3 Aircraft Carriers.
This worried America, who saw this rearmanent of the Confederacy as a preparation for war, Hitler assured President Hoover that he was only reclaiming what was his. Soon, In 1934, this massive expansion had added half of the planned fleet, including 2 Battleships and 1 Aircraft Carriers.
At the same time he was rebuilding the Navy, Hitler unveiled a new airforce, 1,500 strong, aswell as over 1,000 tanks. From 1930-1935, this massive expansion of the military was the focus, and new tanks, ships, and planes were added every year.
In 1936, Francisco Franco, a Spanish Dictator came to power, and allied with the Confederacy, and also rearmed, Japan, another ally of the Confederacy joined with them. Italy, with Dictator Benito Mussolini as leader, also allied with the Confederacy.
That same year, Hitler began his first expansionist move, he annexed Eastern Texas. The Texans had been part of the Confederacy before World War I, and sympathized with the CSA, alongside Eastern Texas, Western Texas also announced an alliance with the CSA.
Overtime, the Alliance of the Confederacy, Japan, Italy, Spain, and Eastern Texas all accelarated their rearmanents, and by July 1939, Hitler was preparing an invasion of the west, Spain Western Europe, Italy, Eastern Europe, and Japan Asia.
World War IIEdit
Axis advances, 1939-1941Edit
On September 1st, 1939, Confederate troops moved through western Texas, and invaded New Mexico. They quickly crushed the New Mexican Defenses, and by september 10th, the Capital of Santa Fe was captured. The United States, who guaranteed Arizona's, Nevada's, Utah's and New Mexico's sovereignty at the Treaty of Versailes, declared war on the Confederacy on September 3rd.
Following America's declaration of war, Canada, America's ally, also declared war. But it wasn't until october that the first attacks on America began. In October, Confederate bombers suddenly flew over Arizona, and flattened Flagstaff, following this, Arizona declared war aswell, along with Utah and Nevada.
But this was nothing, the Confederates then unleashed their anger on the southwest. Over 4 million troops smashed through the three lines, and by November, the Confederacy had defeated Arizona, Nevada, and Utah, and were pouring into Idaho and California.
This was the first time California had been attacked, and the Confederates were rampaging through the west, despite Military support, California fell by January, 1940, and the Confederates were tearing through the American lines in Oregon, Washington, Montana, Colorado, Nebraska, and Idaho.
In March, the Americans were retreating east, and had lost all of their territory in the west. With the west now firmly in their hands, Hitler ordered an invasion of Canada. Though they fought bravely, the Canadians were brushed aside until the Confederates had reached Ontario, and now surrounded America on three sides.
With America's valuable resources from the mainland cut off, the American Pacific Fleet was in deep trouble, Hawaii was under threat, and on April 4th, Japan joined the fight, and declared war on the U.S, and attacked the American fleet, who were just barely holding out.
Following Japan's lead, Italy and Spain declared War, and sent Troops to fight with the Confederacy. In May, Mexico and Central America fell, and, finally, South America as a whole was defeated, leaving America alone to fight the Axis.
From May to October, America continued her bloody fight, and president Franklin Delano Roosevelt refused to give up, and they managed to keep the South out of Illinois. All the while Roosevelt asked again and again for help from Britain, France and Germany, but these countries had been shattered by World War I, and refused, Russia also was skeptical, but she did allow the Pacific Fleet a base at her far east border.
As the months wore on, American losses began piling up, and the Americans grew more and more desperate, until Britain agreed to supply America, and began sending convoys, which were defended by Britain's royal navy, but still, not until October did America gain any official help.
In October, 1940, Italy launched a massive invasion of Germany, Austria-Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Serbia, Poland, and Russia. The immediate effect was Germany's, Austria's, Romania's, Bulgaria's, Serbia's, Poland's, and Russia's declaration of war on Italy, after which Spain, the CSA, and Japan declared war on them.
But hope nearly fell when the Italians defeated all of Eastern Europe except Russia and Germany, and began an invasion of Germany, though Kaiser Friedrich I refused to surrender, and the Germans managed to check the Italian advance in Munich.
In November, Spain launched her blitzkrieg against the west, where France was defeated before German or British troops even arrived, Belgium, Holland, Luxembourg and Denmark all fell just as quickly. The main goals of this campaign was to cut the three allied powers in areas so they couldn't band together.
Following the invasion of Norway on December 7th, Britain declared war on Spain and Italy, and joined the fight against the Axis. But still, Germany began to fall as a second blitzkrieg against her began by both the Italians and Spanish, British troops penetrated the Denmark-Norway blockade, and landed a fleet to rescue the Germans, a flood of German, Austrian, Serbian, Romanian, Polish, and Bulgarian soldiers all fled with the British fleet, which fled back to England.
Like Napoleon more then 100 years ago, Britain was the last one in Europe standing, aside from the Russians, who were led by queen Catherine III. While the British, Americans, and Russians fought for their life, Japan conquered Manchuria, Burma, Malaya, coastal China, and Mongolia.
At the battle of Maui, March 1941, the Japanese succesfully established a beach-head and prepared to invade the rest of the islands, the American pacific fleet again succeeded in defeating the Japanese. As the bitter fighting wore on, Britain was forced to resort to air attacks, and the bombing raids in places like Madrid, Barcelona, and Rome.
As the allies fought on, they met in New York to discuss what would happen after the war, even if the war would end, the American President suggested the dismemberment of the Confederacy, and that their principal of state's rights would be used to back this, and in August 1941, the Allies agreed that the states in the CSA would become new countries, similar to what happened at the end of World War I.
Turning the Tide, 1942-1943Edit
After the successes of their invasions, the war turned into a stalemate from august 1941 to february 1942. The only real allied success against Japan was the prevention of the fall of Australia, who joined the Allies in September, in Europe, it was better, the British fleet managed to retake Denmark and Norway, and used this to send convoys to the Russians.
In America, it was very different, it was bloody chaos. Once again, the United States became the major theatre of war, and many million U.S. casualties dwarfed the few hundred thousand of the western allies.
Even so, the Americans defeated the Confederate's navy at the battle of New York, where the Confederates tried to invade the island to end the war. But in June, 1942, the Americans launched an all out attack on the Confederate shipping.
Over 100 Confederate ships were sunk in the summer. German U-boats made a difference, and casualties continued to mount against the Axis, and it seemed that the Allies could now successfully begin an invasion. In September, the Americans and British teamed up to take the port of Dieppe, it was a catastrophic failure, and half of the soldiers involved were either killed or captured.
While the Allies continued their fight, Russia began sending troops to invade Manchuria and Korea, which was a success. By 1943, the Americans had defeated the Confederates in a string of victories, and began their invasion to retake the west.
The first american tanks and armies thundered into the North West, and began the slow process of retaking it, from 1943 onward, President Roosevelt pressured Churchill, then Catherine to open a second front in Canada or California.
The two agreed, and made preparations, first, they needed to defeat the Italians and Spanish, and in August, the British landed in Calais France, and the Russians began their Steamroller to retake the east. The Spanish, whose forces had been devastated by the British bombings and guerilla fighting were ill-prepared, and soon, the British reached into Germany.
In December, 1943, the British and Russians met up and successfully liberated Europe, and together, took Rome, killed Mussolini, and used the Mediterranean as a route to Spain, despite a bloody invasion, the English and Russians took Madrid, killed Franco, and defeated Spain, leaving only Japan and the Confederacy standing.
As expected, the English, Russians, Germans, French, Poles, Austro-Hungarians, Romanians, Bulgarians, and Serbians landed in March, 1944
Allies close in, 1944-1945Edit
On March 8th, 1944, an Allied armada landed on the coast of Georgia. It was 4,000 ships strong, and over 4 million troops were in the barracks. It included roughly 100,000 Americans who fought with England and Germany. The plan was that the Russians would take the farthest North beach, code-named Leningrad, the Germans the beach just south of the Russians, code named Munich, the British, Gold beach, in the middle, the French the upper south beach, code named Paris, and the Americans, taking the far southern beach, code named Omaha.
The Americans and Russians took the least casualties, with only 145 losses, with the Russians loosing rouhgly 180. At Gold and Paris, it was far more difficult, the British and French had a rough landing and took many casualties, but managed to secure their beach-heads, at Munich, the Germans took heavy casualties, roughly 6,000 men, but still succeeded in taking Munich, all five allied beach-heads were now secure, and the Allies began cutting across the South east, one by one, Georgia, the Carolinas, Virginia, and Florida were taken.
Meanwhile, the American army in the west, which had been on the attack since 1943, had successfully liberated most of the west, and were closing in on Alabama. As the invasion dragged on, the Allies succesfully took all of the South except for Alabama.
By december, the allies had taken all of the Confederacy, and were marching on Montgomery. In a bitter battle, the allies stormed Mongtomery, killed Hitler, and succeeded in finally defeating the Axis. Meanwhile, in the east, the Americans and Russians had been leading a similar campaign, and were on their way to defeating the Japanese and finally, by May, 1945, the Japanese were defeated, the war was over.
Despite victory, there was a massive loss of life, 70 million people had died, and 50 million were injured. The Americans lost almost 15 million, despite this, America, Germany, and Russia emerged as superpowers, while Britain and France retained the superpower status.
Because of extensive cooperation, the allies remained extremely close. In 1946, America, Germany, Britain and Russia all signed up to the new United Nations, aswell as the Pact of Defence, which the nations agreed to come to eachother's defense. This was joined by Poland, France, Austria-Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Serbia, and Norway in 1950, by 1976, Spain, Italy, Japan, Sweden, Brazil, and Canada also joined.
The CSA, the one who started World War II, never joined this Pact, because there was no Confederacy to sign. Although its successor republics all joined. After World War II, the Confederate States of America was dismembered, out of it, new nations were formed. Virginia, Arkansas, Tennessee, Carolina(formed from both South and North Carolina), Florida, Alabama, Mississipi, Louisiana, and Oklahoma.
At first, the former Confederates were all shocked, but soon, the principle of states rights came to their mind, it was what the Confederacy was founded upon, so they soon accepted, but their agricultural heritage proved to severley weaken them, they were unable to build armies for self defense, or factories to build goods, so they all signed doctrines to add a large number of industrial plants, and more cities to live.
All of them soon signed a pact with the United States, the pact of Mutual Assistance of North American Countries(MANAC for short), soon, Canada and Mexico joined the pact aswell. By the end of 2012, the pact contained 21 countries.
Other major changes soon occured, in both the Southern Countries and the USA, strong civil rights movements began, and by 1980, these had succeeded, and Racism began to die away in the south. In 1946, America completed her research on the Atomic Bomb, and after testing, it proved to be the most powerful weapon yet seen, Thermonuclear weapons soon followed.
But unlike the Cold War of our time, no nuclear arms race began, as all the superpowers had very high relations, so there was little tension.
At the same time the Confederate States was dismembered, a wave of independence spread across the globe, soon, most colonies of Britain and France were independent, and British dominions in Canada, Australia, and other commonwealth countries were completely independent.
Over time, however, new threats emerged, those in the Middle East, China, and North Korea(Which fell apart after a civil war). This threat was terrorism, and increased attacks including a major attack on the World Trade Center in New York, caught international attention. For example, the President of Tennessee said the attacks "could not be justified and Tennessee and her citizens express great sympathy to the United States and her losses, and Tennessee shall stand by America in this war against Terrorism!"
In the invasion of Iraq in 1993, coalition forces consisted of the USA, Tennessee, Carolina, Nevada, England, Russia, Poland, and Italy. In 4 weeks, Iraq was defeated by the coalition. In 1993, the Russian Empire granted independence to it's regions north and east of Poland: Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Finland, Ukraine, and Belarus.
Simultaeneously, the Austro-Hungarian Empire fell apart, and other new countries were formed: Austria, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, and Yugoslavia. But perhaps the biggest change to the world map came in 2014.
A New Age BeginsEdit
In 2014, the country of Virginia voted to return to United States rule. It was shocking at first, but soon, the south as a hole repitioned for annexation into the USA. Soon, the Union, split for 159 years, was finally hole again. In 2017, Canada, decided to petition for annexation into the Union, soon, Mexico, followed by the countries of Central America, also joined in. In 2019, The United States renamed herself the Republic of North American States, or RNAS.
There are no more records for what happens after this, so this is:
