For many historians the first 50 years of the 20th century are viewed as 50 Year War, as the North American continent was continually in the throes of war.


In March of 1931 the Dons of the Republic of Texas decided that they wanted more land and looked to their neighbor of the United States of America. Thinking that their war would be as simple as in the past, and that their designs of capturing Arkansas, Missouri and Kansas would be easily achieved, the Dons moved with all speed, and by July of 1931 had invaded up to the Missouri and Nebraska rivers.

This victory was short-lived, as the United States prior to the Awful Recession had been developing faster and more deadly tanks. With the production capability of the Great Lakes auto manufacturers the US quickly produced sufficient war materiel to repulse the Texans from Yankee soil.

With the promise of peace from quiet California, the United States pursued its war against Texas, seeking to drive home their superiority. By the end of 1934 the leaders of Texas were captured, executed or in exile, and the nation ceased to be a viable entity. With Germany and Russia as its major supporters, the US was not challenged by the international community.

The communities of Sequoia, Southern Colorado (which remained adjoined to Sequoia), Texarkana and Louisiana gratefully returned to union with the Yankee states. The Mexicans of Chihuahua and Sonora greeted the change in rulers as the Texan Dons had treated them much as the Confederates treated their Blacks.

Because the United States had been required to draw itself out of the Depression and onto a war footing, it was more aptly prepared for The World War that was to come.

With the Yankee economy thus rejuvenated from the invasion of Texas, the USA was not so deeply wounded as the other nations of the world by the Awful Recession. The CSA witnessed this subjugation and the upper echelons were deeply concerned that the United States would turn their eyes to the South, seeking a final redress of their wrongs. This view was later seen to be prophetic.

With the strengthening of the United States, other allied nations from The Great War were able to restore themselves as well, and were also not as deeply affected by the Awful Recession.
