The United States of America has had a frustrating beginning in the period of Victoria's upbringing and reign. Relations were built with the United Kingdom and our brothers in Texas. In fact both ourselves, the British, Spanish and French came to the aide of Texas in its defeat of Mexico in the Tex-Mex war. As a result we acquired California, while Texas acquired New Mexico.
We went onwards and colonised Oregon, Washington, Colorado and Oklahoma. From then onwards we concentrated on paying off the war debt we created -v- the Mexicans, whilst also building our influence across the Americas. We now hold Haiti, Hawaii, USCA, Venezuela, Uruguay, Bolivia and Ecuador in our sphere of influence.
After the Mexican war we also began improving our army. Many new regiments were formed, in anticipation of another war with Mexico. Indeed, an agreement was made with Texas in terms of dealing with Mexico and conducting a peace deal favourable to both ourselves and Texas. Therefore, USA will take Nevada-Utah and Texas Arizona. War was declared early in 1851 upon Mexico, but alas as soon as USA began invading Mexico, did the southern states declare independence from the Union. The Civil War had begun.
Faced with a war against large numbers in Mexico, as well as the chaos mounting in the southern states, the United States began to pull troops back towards the southern states. Accidentally, peace terms were negotiated and concluded between the US general in command of the forces in Sonores, and a white peace was reached. This arrangement probably pleased the Texans as well, as our efforts had heavily been hampered by the Civil War outbreak. Texas peaced with Mexico a month later, and now USA could fully concentrate upon defeating the Southern States.
Over the course of a year and a half, the Southern States were defeated and united back into the Union. In reality, the Southern States had no time to organise an army which could withstand the Union's well trained regiments. In fact thankfully due to Jacobin rebel activity in the North Eastern states, had the Union any divisions to bring into the field of battle in Virginia. As a result of such a position, the Union held the upper hand from the beginning. Reinforcements arrived from Texas in the form of a relief Texan army and the US armies who had been involved in the Mexican invasion efforts. They began taking back Louisiana and Arkansas, and working eastwards to link up with the other Union armies. By early 1853 the war was all but won and finally the USA was united again.
Now efforts are being made to continue the war effort against Mexico. The second invasion is being prepared!!
