    We wonder why the Union is meddling in the affairs of South America like this, if the people of Guyana desire to be free from the europeans they will express their opnion.
    This region has a very small population and is not likely to express concern with the European countries, i doubt that an independent Guyana would be anywhere near realistic.

    OOC: France still owns it part to this day.
    OOC : Yes, the british and dutch however...
    I feel that they can maintain it for quite some time, it isn't really likely that a region with such a small population would rebel unless they really had a reason to do so.

    OOC: Modern day the entire region (French, Dutch and British) has a population of less than 1.5 million. No real hope for a rebellion, or even for one starting.

    OOC: There is genuinely no interference by the USA. The USA itself would be a third party in the scope of that. And so would Brazil.

    The Heavenly Kingdom


    People of China! The Heavenly Kingdom will free you from the opressive Qing! Our cause is holy, our means just! Forsake your vows to the imposter in Beijing; Hong Xiuquan is the one true Emperor of all of China! You've seen the brutality and incompetence of the Qing, you've endured their rule because you had no hope to change your fate, but these times are past. Here is your chance! Swear fealty to Hong Xiuquan, swear fealty to the Heavenly Kingdom, and with the help of God we shall restore China to its former glory!

    Soldiers of the Qing! You fight for a lost cause, you fight for an unjust cause! Lay down your arms, or join the Heavenly Army. Do not fear repercussions, for we fight the false Emperor, not the people! Help us end this war now, so you can all return to your families and live in peace!

    Beaurocrats of the Middle Kingdom! You've seen the arbitrariness of the Qing! Every single one of you could be the next in line for execution. But fear not, there is hope for you! Embrace Hong Xiuquan as your true Emperor, open your gates to the Heavenly Army, for it will protect you from the swords of the Murderer in Beijing! The sooner this war ends, the sooner we can work together to rebuild our Great Nation!


    All hail Hong Xiuquan! All hail the Heavenly Kingdom! All hail China!

    The Tennessee Valley Campaign: June - November 1862


    The issue of mixed up orders had infuriated President Lincoln, and the commanding General, William T. Sherman. President Lincoln ordered General Sherman to engage the enemy in Kentucky, as it would be yet another disaster to the Union should all of Kentucky fall to the Confederacy. General Sherman devised a plan that would rip the Confederate Army away from Kentucky, and deal a terrible blow to Confederate Moral. Conferencing with the rest of his general staff, they agreed that the best way to wrench the Confederates' control of Kentucky was to attack straight into the Heartland of the Confederacy.

    Setting off on June 17th, 1862, General Sherman left his camp in Western Virginia and started to march down the Tennessee Valley, laying waste to any farms, fields, and infrastructure he ran in to. While there was some opposition, many surprised Confederate citizens let him pass through, burning a trail behind him. The Confederate Army of Tennessee, finally hearing of this move, quickly loaded onto the antiquated rail system and drove towards Knoxville, Tennessee.

    General Bragg's defense of Knoxville was almost complete, he had his lines stretched well across the valley, with scouts ready to tell him when and where the Union Army would emerge. The only problem for General Bragg was that General Sherman, knowing what the challenges the Tennessee Valley posed, he made sure his army marched into the mountains, and emerged behind Knoxville. Sherman ordered the railroad to be torn up, the rails superheated and tied into knots. Early in the the morning on a hazy summer day, General Sherman ordered the Army of Kentucky to charge into Knoxville, taking the Confederates by surprise. General Bragg ordered his forces to turn around to try and deal with the advancing army, but it was to no avail. The Army of Kentucky quickly divided and enveloped the Army of Tennessee, which caused them to simply break and run to the mountains, or simply passing the Yankees and running South.

    General Sherman let the Army of Tennessee escape towards the South, his main goal was to get them out of Kentucky. To make sure that Knoxville would be of no military value to the Confederate Army, Sherman ordered it destroyed and burnt to the ground. The was the first instance of Sherman's strategy of "Total War" leaving nothing in his wake but burning embers. [-1,000 Regulars from USA. -2,000 Regulars from CSA. -3,000 Conscripts from USA. -6,000 Conscripts from CSA.]


    1. The aftermath of General Sherman's Siege of Knoxville.


    General Bragg, responsible for losing one of the Confederacy's main strategic cities, was relieved of duty by President Davis and replaced by General Joseph E. Johnson. Halfway between the switching of Generals, Sherman's Army of Kentucky slammed into Confederate defenses at Chattanooga. Loosely organized, they simply broke and ran. The Battle of Chattanooga lasted only for an hour, and only one Corps of Sherman's Army was up and assaulting, and the entire Confederate Army melted away. General Bragg was once again called upon for being responsible, destroying the massive Confederate gains by bringing the Union Army straight to the doorstep of the very Heartland of the Confederacy. [-1,000 Conscripts from the USA. -2,000 Conscripts from the CSA.]

    While in Chattanooga, General Sherman made certain to destroy all of the rail lines he could find. Chattanooga was the hub of the Confederate Railroad network, and without it, the connection between East and West has been severely hampered, but not cut off, as there was still three working railroads that ran through Georgia into Alabama. [-1 Infrastructure from the CSA.]


    2. Confederate Prisoners after the Battle of Chattanooga.


    General Johnson was able to reorganize the shattered Confederate forces and he reorganized the army into the Army of Georgia, ready to help defend the Heartland of the Confederacy. Making Atlanta his base of operations, General Johnson scrambled to create a successful defense. Unfortunately for him, General Sherman's army kept marching straight towards him. September 19th, 1862 marked the Battle of Atlanta, where General Sherman decided to try and make yet another shove into Confederate territory. Johnson's ability to organize a defense did prove to be successful for the first day, where General Sherman took heavy casualties. Expecting Sherman to withdraw, Johnson didn't counter attack, hoping to save some of his forces.

    General Sherman, however, didn't stop the next day. He charged the Army of Kentucky forward, smashing the front of Johnson's flank. Desperate to save his forces, he retreated all his men to the west, hoping to regroup and re-arm in Montgomery, Alabama. Sherman's victorious forces celebrated by laying waste to the entire city, burning it, and then subsequently moving West to try and destroy the Confederate Army of Georgia. [-8,000 Conscripts from the USA. -6,000 Conscripts from the CSA.]


    3. The Atlanta Train Depot after the Union Army burned the city.


    President Lincoln was very pleased with the results of General Sherman and subsequently promoted him to General of the Armies, the highest rank in the United States, shared only by President Washington. The United States finally won a major campaign, opening up the previously impervious Confederacy. Kentucky was now completely under Union control, and a clear line from Kentucky to Atlanta was burned, leaving nothing bust waste behind. General Sherman settled down for the winter on November 19th, 1862. Right on the outskirts of the burnt Atlanta.

    The Qing Emperor Ruler of all under heaven begs his people not to listen to the lies spouted by the False Taiping Emperor he claims to be a Christian in defiance of the Wisdom of Confucius who has given us many wise lessons over the years. In fact he isn't even a true Christian but in the eyes of many true Christians he his a deplorable heretic. Soldiers you do not fight for a lost cause you fight for the right one. These rebels will be thrown back Across the Yellow river and they shall never cross it again. Officials of the Government yes I have been harsh but some of those killed will have almost definitely been corrupt the fact of the arbitrariness of this action was that it was an miscalculated reaction to the failure to develop industry as a result of Corruption and it shall not happen again to any who are innocent of any crimes. Where as Hong Xiuquan has killed many close supporters on a whim with no evidence and it is even said by some that he kills anyone who fails to call him heavenly. As for claims that they will free the people from oppression is false the oppression of the Manchu will only be replaced by the oppression of the Hakka group to which their false emperor belongs. But even now reforms are being implemented to improve the lot of the majority including the Han who have so long been oppressed and you can already see the results for yourself as very recently the Emperor himself appointed Zeng Guofan a man of Han background to command a massive chunk of the Qing military and all groups are now equal in terms of gaining position it only depends on how skilled you are. Don't listen to his lies your oppression is almost at an end as the Planned reforms could take many of even the Most reform minded people by suprise in their speed and scope.

    I, for one, happen to like Hong. Though his version of Christianity is...rudimentary, it is most certainly an improvement from the usual horrid backwardness of the eastern barbarians, and is definitely a step in the right direction.

    I say, let all civilized peoples embrace and encourage Hong and the Heavenly Kingdom as the legitimate government of China!

    The Qing Emperor ruler of all under heaven has made contact with several local Christian Missionaries who have informed that not only is the Taiping faith heretical it is an insult to the Christian God that Hong Xiuquan's claim to be the son of god is a pack of lies and an Insult to their God and all true Christians should oppose this and that while many Chinese are not Christians they are simply not according to them Enlightened and that can be no crime as it is their job to Enlighten them they say and that the Qing emperor is viewed better in the eyes of their god than the so called son of god Hong Xiuquan. This is only more evidence that the Qing hold the Mandate of Heaven and so shall destroy the Taiping rebels who rebel against heaven and earth it seems.
