Dust and Ashes
As of the year 1889 the Republic of Mexico is undergoing drastic change with a Civil War not unlike the United States own conflict just twenty years prior. At the turn of the 19th Century Mexico declared its independence from the Spanish Crown, it was recognized as an independent nation ten years later.
It was due to this turn of the century rebellion that the U.S. was able to purchase such large swathes of land so cheaply, Spain needed funds to finance their attempt to quell the rebellion of her colonies.
Various leaders rise and fall with no sign of the dreadfully bloody conflict ceasing.
