Political Tensions

Starting around Feb of 1810 the young American government entered into negotiations with england for the East Coast of North America... what was once the original 13 colonies. After the US Revolutionary war the original 13 colonies went back to The British Empire while most of the rest of Mid West went to the newly formed United States. With the Gulf Coast America's only access to the Atlantic... and the only major body of water on their border. This has been a major point of contention since 1778. Thirty years is a long time to hold a grudge.

Now, in 1811, The US Government is beginning to get frustrated at the lacking progress in annex negotiations. The original 13 colonies has become a major cash cow for The British Empire and they are haven't budged on the issue. Privately the US Congress began discussing the possibility of military action to take the east coast. President Charles Sebastian Galveso was adamantly against military action and promoted diplomacy as much as possible. This attitude earned President Galveso an unfair image of being spineless, as evident by the many political cartoons circulating the american cities. President Galveso was never spineless, he would just prefer not to be the aggressor in a situation like this. To Galveso.. it was simply being evil.

Despite the President's demands to keep the situation diplomatic, The General of the American Army convinced The President as well as congress that the British may attack first and heavy recruitment was needed.. just in case. In all reality the generals true motivation was to prepare an invasion force for the British American colonies
