I have to admit, I never intended on doing an AAR for this game. I just wanted to try out a strategy I read on this thread http://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/showthread.php?t=263212 and see if I could survive through the second Civil War. I restared a couple times just to try out different strategies, and then tonight, I had the "America Falls Apart" event fire, and I thought "Wow..now this could be fun to write about." So, because of my late decision to start writing this, it begins in 1870, at the close of the Second War of Southern Independence. I'll attempt to take it as far as I can, update in various styles (hence, "Scrapbook) when interesting things happen, and we'll just see how it goes. With any luck, I'll be able to export and take it through 1953.
