What game is this thing on, anyway? I like the little letter things you do, by the way.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Victoria:_An_Empire_Under_the_Sun I think.

I enjoyed reading this, keep it up.

God is dead!

The Daily Dixie
August 21st, 1861

Clergymen and pastors across the Carolinas were outraged recently. His excellence Jefferson Davis was being pressured by a number of senators last week, vying for a variety of viewpoints. Shortly before shutting the door to his office, he declared that nobody should so much as breath the word God at him as long as this war progresses, and nobody should ever mention anything but that which is, in fact, extant in any political forum. Flustered, he left the senators in a rush. Whether his second comment meant that he denied the existence of God is debated, but he will doubtless make no further claims of victories based on providence. His vice president said that the president will still attend church, but nonetheless this event has sparked those without moral integrity to voice their faulty views.


The yanks have seized the far north of Virginia, while in the Shenandoah, Lee meets up with reinforcements from Richmond. He must now train them and get up their morale before joining in battle with the north again.



Out west, another Union army is marching on our liberators in Kentucky.



Currently, soldiers are being trained in Charleston for deployment, and Jefferson Davis is considering passing a draft.

When we have acquired additional soldiers, shall we send them on a renewed eastern campaign, an attack into the west, or a combination of the two, using the western soldiers to lure the yanks from their more important centers of government and culture?

All priorities should lie in the east. Both capitals are there.

To the east!


Captain J. Anderson

MESSAGE FOR COMMANDER JAMES ANDERSON. STOP. YOU ARE ORDERED TO LEAVE PORT STAUNTON AND PROCEED TO CHESAPEAKE BAY WITH THREE RAIDERS. STOP. INTERCEPT YANK FISHING BOATS AND TRADERS. STOP. SUPPORT UNITS ON LAND WHEN DONE. STOP. RETURN WHEN MANASSAS TAKEN. STOP. RETURN IN ONE MONTH OTHERWISE. STOP. CONFEDERATE BLOCKADE RUNNERS LEAVING PORT TO BE PROTECTED ON EXIT. STOP. SIGNED SECRETARY OF THE NAVY STEVEN MALLORY.



Off of the eastern coast of Virginia, a small packet of ships under Commander Anderson moved north to support future military action near to the water. They met resistance from the Yank Captain Stover in Chesapeake bay. In the Shenandoah, a detachment of northern troops engaged Lee's encampment, where the soldiers had, for the most part, completed basic training. Other yank troops were moving west to crush the armies interspersed there.



General Hood was rapidly losing ground in eastern Kentucky after the fresh troops from the north engaged his own. Additional troops are moving in from the east.



General Beaulieu of the Army of the Mississippi took military control of the far west of Kentucky, lending legitimacy to our claim. Unfortunately, thirty thousand men from the northwest are moving to drive us out. In eastern Kentucky, the battle continues to fare badly.


Back east, both battles, naval and land, were quickly won by our forces.



Only days after their initial defeat, though, the men of the north sent a large fleet after our ships.

We were forced to order Commander Anderson back to Staunton.



Worse still, a large army is marching on Staunton, and will provide them with a chance to strike at Richmond if they succeed.

The question now given here is thus.

Should Lee move up to Manassas, retake it from their weaker forces, then attack those enemies encircled in Stanton? This may provide us with a strategic advantage, and their army would be destroyed if it had no means of escape, but if the battle in Manassas takes too long, they may take control of Richmond and deal us an equally devastating blow. Our other option would be to move in defense of Staunton. If we repel their army with a great enough victory, it may allow us to pursue them up to Washington, but only if we win a victory in which much of our soldiers' morale is still intact.

"Listen to my words brothers, for a glorious day is upon us. General Lee has proven that the fire of the lord resides wholly his spirit! He has driven the Yanks from the nation of Christ the savior and back onto their god-forsaken soil. He has crushed their will and delivered a divine blow to their treacherous faces! As they lay dying and fearful, let it be known that the most fiery ring of hell is reserved for those traitors to their own heritage, and they shall forever burn in heavenly retribution! Their day of reckoning is at hand, my brothers, and the day of victory draws near!"

-Joshua Jacobs, Firebrand Virginia Minister



In Paducah, reinforcements flooded into Kentucky and prepared to expand the fight in the west.

Unfortunately, they were caught with too little preparation when a great Yankee army came crashing down upon them.



They were driven back. To the north, armies of the north plot their treacherous attacks.



General J.E.B. Stuart continues to liberate the Indian lands out west. They will prove useful allies, or citizens.


Lastly, the glorious General Lee has driven the Yanks from Virginia. The strike into Manassas destroyed the enemy, and the great leader of our armies is poised to move upon the eastern corridor. Four regiments will be available in three weeks. Should they go out west, to keep the northern forces occupied while Lee secures the US government? They could go east to hasten the process, but extensive loss of land in Tennessee or elsewhere would give the Yanks an excuse not to surrender. The troops, though, could be split between the two, even if the risk still exists of land loss to the great armies in northern Kentucky.

Where will they be deployed?

Congratulations! You have chosen  WEST  .

I am pretty sure you did.

Lincoln entered the room quietly. His shoulders sloped. His eyes were dark and sunken. His cheeks were bony and his skin was drawn tight. Behind him, a colonel standing guard clasped the Oval Office's door and shut it with a soft clank. Lincoln firmly grasped his stovepipe hat and lowered it solemnly to his chest, revealing a mess of dark hair. He inhaled, drawing up the will to speak. His wandering eyes found his subject.

"Good evening, General."

The words were bleak, sad, and only hinted of his formerly jovial self.

Opposite him, about a large oak table, sat a white-haired man in a clean gray uniform.

"Good evening, Mr. President. Please sit down."

General Lee motioned to the chair in front of the dejected politician.

Lincoln sat.

General Lee pushed forward a small, decorated box. "Virginia cigar?"

Lincoln looked up at Lee with woeful eyes.

"No. Thank you General."
