Dust and Ashes
United States of America
Originally a series of British colonies that declared independence from the crown in 1776, the United States quickly came into world significance due to an overabundance of natural resources and a strong, ingrained work ethic that caught on when colonists who didn’t work their hardest died in obscurity. A large country that spread very quickly from East to West due to clever political maneuvering and manipulation of the turbulence of the foreign nations around it.
In 1862 the American Civil War began with the Rural West declaring war on the Civilized East, it ended in 1867 with victory going to the East with Confederate General John Williamson’s surrender at Appomattox Courthouse to Union General Robert Edward Lee.
