The Confederate States of America - Victoria Metagame
« on: August 21, 2008, 04:48:04 pm »
                                                         The War of Southern Secession

I worked night and day for twelve years to prevent the war, but I could not. The North was mad and blind, would not let us govern ourselves, and so the war came.
-Jefferson Davis

Not too long ago, our boys went after the forts of those greedy damnyankees who refused to get out of our rightful territory.

Now they're goin' after us!

That damned federalist leader of theirs thinks he can keep rulin' over us.

Damn it to hell if he ain't wrong!

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Surveying the state of the Confederacy, it will be a difficult journey if we intend to gain freedom from our northern oppressors.

The Democrats under Jeff Davie make up our new government.



The people of the south are willing to give up much to see freedom, and we have a sizable surplus to invest in the war of secession.



In the north, General Lee commands the army of Northern Virginia. Under his leadership we will achieve victory.



Out west, our soldiers are ready to jump into the lands that haven't yet been freed from the damnyankees, and even farther into their own homes.



___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

What now, congress of our fair nation, shall I send as instruction to our armies that we may crush our adversaries?

Attack Washington! Philly!

Senator,

It was only a few days ago that the assembled armies of Virginia met in Manassas to prepare for the push against the yanks. For this, I thank you, as it is my understanding that you helped get the order to the President expediently. Last night, though, picket scouts reported that an army larger than ours was marching on our position. From what our informants could collect, it seemed to be led by General Harmon under the direct command of General McClellan. Neither is a skilled man, and Reb Lee should be able to outdo them in every way, should it be necessary Off north of the railroad line, our forward unit and scouts are fighting theirs, and I hear that more yanks are coming in from Washington across the Potomac. Lee hasn't put all of the men into battle yet, and I can only surmise that he is waiting for a response from higher up.

Humbly,
Lt. Samuel Pickart


In the core of the Confederacy, congress is passing sweeping acts that gear up what little industry we can muster.



Our soldiers out west are working to regain early losses to the yanks in the Indian Territory, many of them entering southern Kentucky to take the land that rightfully belongs to the South. In the east, General Lee is on the verge of a major battle. He has not yet committed his forces, and would still withdraw if instructed to do so by congress. Yet, I have little doubt that he is a great man and would win the battle if committed.

Gentlemen, we are at war.  This is no time to be sitting back waiting for the Yankees to make the first move.  General Lee must go on the offensive.
Probably not a Goat, either.

In this context, 'twould "secession," not "succession." The South is seceding from the Union, not succeeding anyone as a ruler.

Sue for peace and form a socialist republic.
Not a winner anymore.

Ah yes, I meant to say what Lurk said.  It's supposed to be the War of Northern Aggression, anyways.

Yes, I'm quite aware of the difference. That was a typo that went uncorrected. Thanks.

Results of battle coming up.

Fight!

My dearest sister,

I send you this letter with a heavy heart. In my last letter, Susan, I told you that the lieutenant was leading us up from the Shenandoah valley to Manassas to take on the yanks. When we got there, we met up with some fifty-thousand other men under Reb Lee. Sarge kept saying how we would whoop the damnyankees. Couple days after, they attacked. Reb Lee told us to hold our positions, but the yanks kept coming. Our unit was rolled back by reinforcements coming in from the west. It was terrible Sarge and Sam are both gone. You might want to tell his family, I don't think anyone has sent a letter about him yet. We're going back to the valley. Reinforcements are coming up from Richmond. I pray each night that they need not see what I have.

Your loving brother,
Jonathon




General Lee engaged in battle at the behest of the Senate.



His troops suffered outrageous casualties.



His lieutenants convinced him to withdraw to prevent a worse bloodbath.



Out west, a large Northern army in marching on Texas. Confederate soldiers in the region are being redirected to combat it.



In North Carolina, certain politicians are decrying the amorality of the north, and may be going too far.

How should we treat religion in this perilous time?

For the record, I voted that Lee withdraw. Discretion is the better part of something or other.

And Gunner, how will we create a socialist republic without good old southern-style atheism?

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