    Room for Two? - An AH American Federation AAR

    Hello and welcome to Room for Two? - An AH (Alternate History) American Federation AAR. The basic premise is that in the American revolution, only the 13 colonies became independant. The rest became a seperate nation after the war of 1812, and I shall play as that nation. I will be taking most of the roles and events that the USA did historicaly, such as aiding Texas and whatnot. So without further ado, I will continue with the backstory.

    Room for Two?




    American Revolution - Due to stronger British resistance, only the 13 colonies were given independance. The land between them and the Mississippi River remained in British hands. However, the scatered colonists in the area were discontent with British rule.

    Late 18th and early 19th centuries - The remaining British lands below Canada are mainly ignored by Britain. Colonists from the USA still settle in the areas, and new immigrents from Euope still arrive.

    War of 1812 - Faced with increasing forced conscription by Europeans of American Sailors to keep their various armed forces running due to the Napoleonic Wars, America goes to war with Britain. British land below Canada uses this to rebel. With the help of the USA, the area is secured. Attacks on Canada fail. However, most of the garrison in the rebellious areas was captured in the confusion, some three and a half divisions. This is used as a bargining chip to force the British to the peace table. The British quickly end the war on the condition that the rebellious area is not annexed by the USA, but becomes another nation. The American Federation is born.

    1821 - The American Federation, with support of the USA, offers to buy French American holdings that have fell into dissaray at the end of the Napoleonic Wars. France agrees, loan payments are made untill 1833.

    1836 - Game start.

    (I will have an "American Federation Fact Sheet" up in a minute.

    National Cultures? btw this sounds interesting...And how will you be writing it? Detailed gameplay, or storytelling? or something else or a combination? 'cause I think it would be awesome if you could incorporate the indian tribes into the federation, but its all about however you wanna play it. But I see it as a nice reason to add a few more national cultures

    And since, you are essentially not the USA, will your national claims be different?

    Perhaps a screenshot of the borders?
    But Eärendil climbed the green hill of Túna and found it bare; and he entered into the streets of Tirion, and they were empty; and his heart was heavy, for he feared that some evil had come even to the Blessed Realm. He walked in the deserted ways of Tirion, and the dust upon his raiment and his shoes was a dust of diamonds, and he shone and glistened as he climbed the long white stairs. --The Silmarillion

    The flag looks better ingame, that is the version I made for the forums, and it mainly looks horrible due to poor size. The indians, well, I will pretty much ingore them, they will be allowed to live and do as they please basicly. Not national cultures, but no riots really either. As for style, it will be a mix, mainly pictures and gameplay, but the important events will have alot of history. I will post the borders soon, right now I am finishing up events.

    P.S. I forgot to add, when done, I will convert to HOI2 and continue.

    No,1836... When I finish playing in Victoria, I will take the save game and use a converter to make a HOI2 savegame, so this AAR will be 1836-1964.

    Have you got varied political parties, or just two like the real America.

    I've got quite a few, multi-party system. The main ones are the Conservative Party (85% popularity), the Liberal Party (15% Popularity), and the Federation Party (0% lol, but it is mainly just old war vets anyway who are reactionary). Other parties will come and go with the times. All have equal footing, but my nation is very conservative.

    Population


    Military (yep that is all of it)

    Same as in standard but I got USA's.

    Edit: I'd also like to say I've completed the alternate government type flags for my country, nothing majorly different but if I happen to have a revolution or two...
