I decided to take a break from the all the Direct territorial maps of the Greater Habsburg Empire in my series, and draw one up for another country in my timeline: Mexico. Personally I'm not very happy with how plain it turned out compared to my other maps... but eh, I can always edit it in the future.
Now for some background information:
*July 1st, 1823: The Federal Republic of Central America Declares Independence from the Mexican Empire.
-July 6th, Emperor Augustin I, declares the secession treason, and rally's the Mexican Imperial Army.
-July 10th, The Mexican Imperial Army quickly sweeps south into Guatemala, facing Central American forces at the first major battle of the war at Guatemala City (Battle for Guatemala).
-The Central American Congress and President Pedro Mazariegos flee to the San Salvador in order to retain the integrity of the Republic.
-Imperial Mexican forces finally take Guatemala city on July 20th.
-July 29th, while the Armies on land marched south, so did the Mexican Imperial Navy. Both the Caribbean and Pacific fleets simultaneously engage Central American Forces in Puerto Lempira, and Puntarenas.
-August 13th, San Salvador falls to Mexican forces, and what will become known as the Central American Rebellion has drawn to a close.
*It is later discovered that the United States had been funneling weapons in order to further the Central American cause for democracy. This strains U.S. Mexican Relations.
*February 1st, 1823: Augustin I abdicates the Mexican throne, and the Federal Republic of Mexico is declared (To lazy for specific details at the moment).
*The Mexican-American War, in responce to the "Texan Crisis" ,The war itself Starting on April 25th, 1846, ends on February 2nd, 1848 with a Victory by the Union of North American States. Resulting in the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo.
The Terms of the Treaty are as such:
>Mexico forfits the territories of Alta California, Baja California, and Nuevo Mexico to the Union of North American States.
>The Annexation of Texas by the Union of North American States is recognized.
>The Rio Grande is Recognized as the Texan Border.
>In exchange for the Territorial Transfer the U.S.N.A. (U.S.) pays Mexico 15 million Dollars.
>All pre-existing property rights of Mexican Citizens in the Newly acquired U.S. Territory are secured and will not be altered.
>The U.S. Takes on over 3.25 Million Dollars in debt that Mexico had owed the U.S.
*Gadsden Purchase Occurs on June 8th, 1854.
Current President: Porfirio Diaz
Government: Federal Republic
Capital: Mexico City
Number of Federal Entities: 7
National Motto: "Unión, Cultura, Libertad, y Trabajo" (Union, Culture, Liberty, and Work)
Currency: Federal Peso
etc, etc, etc....
-Politics are generally dominated by the United Mexican States due to their larger population size. This has been the rallying call behind many secessionists as they see the dominance as unfair, and inadequate at serving the interests of the entire federal union.
-The South is often rocked by many agrarian revolts, claiming the inability of the Government in Mexico city to cater to any other than the rich and powerful.
-Many in the South often see fit to replace the National Motto with: "Unión Por La Fuerza," in english: "Union by Force" (Hopefully i didn't slaughter the spanish, forgive me if i did lol)
*Still not sure about the timeline yet, so please don't ask me xD lol
Other than that, feel free to ask questions, I'll answer them to the best of my ability, and I'm always open to suggestions!
