    It's February 1861, The Confederate States of America secede from the United States of America after the election of Abraham Lincoln. The average American asks themselves, " What does this mean for the Union? ". One thing is for sure, with new warfare types, technologies and communication, times - are - a changing. Italy is almost 100% unified, the Taipeing Rebellion enters a bloody 11th year. New technologies like the Ironclad ship are being thought out. New British and American telegram lines under the Atlantic give North America and Europe give constantly updated information. New weapons kill people in the 1000s. Things aren't like they used to be. That's for sure!

    Send in all turns as turn 1
    Country Name and flag
    Technology: Give me five types and I'll choose two for you to research with.
    Diplomacy: Declaration's of war, Assassination plots, alliances, etc.
    Domestic Decisions: Wanna put down a rebellion? Send in the army!, etc.
    Max: 30 lines

    Choose any country, make an alliance with any country, research tech but don't get unrealistic trying to build a nuke in 1861.

    I think there's a few inaccurate stuff in that map. French aren't in Indochina or the rest of Algeria, there's no Papacy, no unified Romania, Austrian-Italian border, and no Taiping Rebellion to name some.

    Oh wait nevermind, didn't catch the edit you did.

    SEND IN ALL TURNS AS TURN 2



    CSA: Satansick

    - The Confederate States begins to research bolt-action rifles and heavy artillery.
    - The Confederate States of America military offers Black slaves freedom, land, and a job if they serve 3 years in the military in the name of the Confederacy.
    In turn, 340,000 slaves, of the 4 million living in the south, join the ranks of the the currently, 500,000 strong Confederate Army.
    - Confederate president, Jefferson Davis, calls upon 150,000 Southern volunteers to fill the needs of the CSA for the next year.
    - Tariffs on manufactured goods are dropped and tariffs on raw materials begin to be raised.

    they'll have to look to more elaborate ways of fighting such a force.
    - Trade agreements with the UK begin to be thought out, but their exact outcomes are unknown for now.
    - The local government begins to plead with European nations, Prussia, in particular, to give loans and build factories in the States, in return for

    - The confederate military sends 125,000 to fortify the Mississippi river and everything west of it under the command of General. Beauregard, it encounters
    a small force of Union soldiers, roughly 5000 commanded by General William Sherman. The ensuing battle left 200 Confederates dead compared to 1300 Union soldiers.
    Raising Southern morale.
    - The recently raised CS Army is spread out across the country. But Richmond is the most heavily fortified. With accounts of defenders from 20,000 to 150,000.

    - The UK begins to manufacture relatively cheaper items for the US industry but boast how much better they are.
    - A 75,000 man volunteer force is raised to quell the rebellion. But oh- how outnumbered they are.
    - Word reaches out about the first military engagement of the war. And many Americans are aggravated at the 'incompetence' of American advisers send 5000 men to

    - Though a poor volunteer army has been raised, an 80,000 man force that on average has better marksmanship, and training overall is raised.
