The Home Stretch!
-----------

1911

Jan 6 - A new alliance with Cali is secured.

Jan 27 - The 50th anniversary of Southern Independence!

South: :D :D :D :D :D

Sept 18 - Our first Tank divisions are ready. They're placed under a relentless madman named McRae.

McRae: Mmm...tanks... *drools*

1912

Mar 10 - Bolt-Action Rifles invented.

Mar 12 - The reserves are called up, 72 divisions. By now the Southern economy is so strong the mobilization barely makes a dent in the profits.

July 1 - After some manuvers, war is declared to Mexico.

ScreenSave5.jpg

The invasion. The tanks are coming in from the Yucatan.

Mex: :eek:

Oct 11 - The Humiliation of Mexico. (custom event) Mexico cedes large amounts of territory to the CSA and Cali and becomes a CSA satellite.

Nov 1 - And with that total ass-kicking, the CSA is now accepted into the ranks of the Great Powers.

1915

Mar 26 - Four more battleships are constructed. We planned to attack Italy and free Ethiopia, but the plan was called off, since Italy has double our military score. Yipes.

Nothing else happens until Sept 24, 1920, when a full alliance is signed with the UK. The long struggle of the Confederacy to be a mighty world-renowned nation is over.

ScreenSave8.jpg

The CSA, her two allies, and three satellites.

The Final Ranking.

Thanks for reading!

-------
THE EXECUTIVE MANSION
Montgomery, Alabama
January 12, 1953

My Dear Professor Cate;
Your letter of December 6, 1952 has just been delivered to me. When the message came to Hamburg that a successful atomic explosion had taken place in New Mexico, there was much excitement and conversation about the effect on the war then in progress with New England. The next day I told the Prime Minister of Great Britain and Kaiser Wilhelm that the explosion had been a success. The British Prime Minister understood and appreciated what I'd told him. Kaiser Wilhelm smiled and thanked me for reporting the explosion to him, but I'm sure he did not understand its significance. I called a meeting of the Secretary of State, Mr. Byrnes, the Secretary of War, Mr. Stimson, Admiral Leahy, General Marshall, General Patton, Admiral King and some others, to discuss what should be done with this awful weapon.

I asked General Marshall what it would cost in lives to land on the Maine coast and other places in the North. It was his opinion that such an invasion would cost at a minimum one quarter of a million casualties, and might cost as much as a million, on the Southern side alone, with an equal number of the enemy. The other military and naval men present agreed. I asked Secretary Stimson which sites in New England were devoted to war production. He promptly named Chicago and Ottowa, among others. We sent an ultimatum to New England. It was rejected.

I ordered atomic bombs dropped on the two cities named on the way back from Hamburg, when we were in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. In your letter, you raise the fact that the directive to General Spaatz to prepare for delivering the bomb is dated June twenty-fifth. It was, of course, necessary to set the military wheels in motion, as these orders did, but the final decision was in my hands, and was not made until we were returning from Hamburg. Dropping the bombs ended the war, saved lives, and gave the free nations a chance to face the facts. When it looked as if New England would quit, Germany hurried into the fray less than a week before the surrender, so as to be in at the settlement. No military contribution was made by the Germans toward victory over the North. Prisoners were surrendered and Alaska occupied by the Germans, as was Columbia, north of the 50th parallel.

Sincerely,
Dwight D. Eisenhower, President.

Just realized you completed this, Rocketman. I apologize for not stopping by sooner to give a hearty congrats, so...Congrats! :D

And that's a bit of a scary future you just decided upon. One hopes the effects of nuking New England won't trickle down south.

Great work, and always very funny!
