"The 1944 Presidential Elections served as one of the most transformational in American history, as the first election in which the "Solid" Southern United States, which Democrats had often relied on as a reliable voting bloc began to shift in favor of the Republican Party. Historians often attribute the positions which President Henry Wallace held regarding his support of trade unionism in the South and his criticisms on the racial disenfranchisement of black communities, which was often fueled by corrupt political machines. These stances alienated many Southern politicians, who began to view Wallace's stances against segregation as "a betrayal of President Roosevelt's patriotic values" and "communist infiltration into the rights of individual states".

As of 1944, discontent in the South was so high, several state leaders had discussed running under a third-party "Dixiecrat" ticket, led by Arkansas governor Homer Adkins. Meanwhile, the conservative Senator from Ohio, John Bricker would be eagerly nominated by the Grand Old Party, buoyed by his fiery criticisms of the incumbent's policies as "a front for the Hillman-Browder Communist Party". Following his nomination, the party apparatus began suggesting moderate running mates such as Massachusetts senator Henry Cabot Lodge or California governor Earl Warren, drumming up support outside of the Midwest. However, Bricker had been a longtime supporter of the "Conservative Coalition" which united conservative Republicans and Southern Democrats against Roosevelt and Wallace's more liberal policies.

While the Coalition had always been a de-facto alliance and had never held much influence outside of policy-making, Bricker remained determined to bring his vision of an anti-Wallace alliance into reality. Eventually, the other half of Bricker's conservative coalition emerged in the form of Wilbert Lee "Pappy" O'Daniels, junior Texas Senator and famed Western swing musician. While it was clear that O'Daniels joining the Republican ticket would be political suicide, it was an open secret that the Senator would not run for re-election, often being viewed by his constituents as an inefficient legislator. Immediately, this announcement plunged the Party of Lincoln into sheer chaos as liberals denounced Bricker's betrayal of Republican values while the conservatives praised his bold decision and the moderates seemed to be in a state of catatonic shock.

Similar to Bricker himself, Wallace had realized the importance of extending an olive branch towards the South, choosing Burnet Maybank as his running mate, an active supporter of the New Deal, and a fanatic proponent of racial segregation and white supremacy. The resulting election would be one of the strangest in American history, with 1940 Republican nominee Wendell Willkie campaigning on behalf of the Wallace campaign, along with several other prominent liberals. Pappy O'Daniels would briefly restart his musical career, as Republican voters sang his campaign songs from Tulsa to Montgomery, while Virginia Senator Harry Byrd used his stranglehold over local politics to turn the state towards the Grand Old Party.

In the end, Bricker's "March Through Dixie" would fail to win him the Presidency, as loyal Republican states in New England received massive turnout in Wallace's favor. States such as Arkansas and Florida were only won by Bricker with the slimmest of margins as he even failed to win Texas, the home of his running mate. And while Maybank would later ascend to the Vice Presidency alongside Wallace, the Senator from South Carolina would later regret his support for Wallace following the President's desegregation of the Armed Forces, eventually resigning in 1946. Following the election, the Republican party apparatus would later view Bricker's southern outreach as a major reason behind their defeat, eventually leading to Thomas Dewey's nomination in 1948 under the promise of liberal leadership.

But in truth, there was little chance that Bricker would have defeated the popular wartime incumbent riding off of Roosevelt's coattails, even if he had chosen Lodge or Warren as running mate. This would soon be realized after Dewey's defeat at the hands of a more moderate Democratic ticket led by the famed General Eisenhower. While Bricker would remain distrusted by his Republican peers for the rest of his political career, his March Through Dixie would be survived by subsequent Republican campaigns. For without his groundbreaking strategy, Richard Nixon's 1956 Presidential campaign would have never achieved victory without a platform built on advocacy for state's rights or the utilization of a Southern running mate."

TELL ME MORE TELL ME MORE
Wallace becomes very unpopular after being mum on Korea, refusing to sign Taft-Hartley, being blamed for the post-war recession, and failed impeachments. Archibald Roosevelt, the American Legion, and his racist VP get pissed at him after he fires MacArthur like OTL and MacArthur holds a ton of rallies across Pennsylvania Avenue calling for a rally on the White House like OTL. Unlike OTL, MacArthur actually goes through with his threats and the White House is occupied by protestors, forcing Wallace to flee and resign. MacArthur gets appointed to the cabinet and elected president in 1952 under an independent ticket with Republican/Democratic support, but is opposed by multiple third parties. Then he realizes that he never wanted to be President in the first place, leading to an absolute mess of an election in 1956 after he refuses to run again.

Smedley Butler
Major General Smedley Darlington Butler was a senior United States Marine Corps officer who fought in the Sultan War, the Philippine–American War, the Boxer Rebellion, the Mexican Revolution, World War I, the occupation of Haiti, and the Mwami Mwenda Revolt. Following his successful quelling of the revolt, Butler was appointed as Territorial Governor of Katanga by Governor-General Josephus Daniels. Two weeks later, Butler resigned from his position, becoming an open critic of Daniels' corruption, violent actions against political opposition, and open exploitation of Afram and native workers alike. During his retirement from the army, Butler would criticize Congolese administrative policies and called for the resignation of Daniels in his best-selling work, "Mammon's Whip". Butler's work would inspire widespread public outcry, eventually led to the adoption of the Presidential System in the Congolese Protectorate under Emmet Jay Scott's Republican-Free Labor Party.

Marcus Garvey
A Jamaican-born civil rights activist, Marcus Garvey was renowned in America as founder of the Universal Negro Improvement Association, the African Legion (UNIA's paramilitary wing), and the Black Star Steamships, built to assist Aframs migrating to the Congolese Protectorate. After migrating to the Congo himself, Garvey became a prominent supporter of Afram supremacy, vehemently supporting segregation from native citizens, capitalist enterprise, and an American-born "nobility" to establish authoritarian rule. Garvey would later oversee the expansion of the African Legion's Congolese branches, which was initially supported by the administrative elite as a means to control Congolese natives. This support vanished when Garvey began to call for Congolese independence and led the African Legion in a failed attempt to filibuster the French Congo. Following his death from malaria, Deputy Lord-Commander Elijah Poole would take the reigns of the African Legion and reorganize it as a political organization appealing to Aframs alienated by the administrative elite and hostilities with native tribes.

George Alexander McGuire
The founder and first Patriarch of the Congolese Orthodox Church, George Alexander McGuire began his career as an Episcopal priest known for his advocacy of black catechism and Pan-Africanism. Initially, McGuire served as the Chaplain-General of UNIA, later migrating to the Congo Protectorate with Marcus Garvey. However, the two later fell out due to Garvey's opposition to expanding rights to Congolese natives. Alienated by the increasingly harsh actions of Episcopal missionaries, McGuire attempted to found an independent denomination to appeal to all Congolese. Initially a firm Protestant, McGuire later converted to Orthodoxy after a visit to Ethiopia, rebranding his denomination as the Congolese Orthodox Church. Following a series of theological reforms, Congolese Orthodoxy would be recognized by the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople and oversaw massive conversions amongst the financially dominant Bakongo tribes. Simon Kimbangu, co-founder of the Kongo Youth Movement was also a protege of McGuire and a clergyman of the Congolese Orthodox chruch.​

The People’s Republic of America

Once a shining city on a hill, United States would see a long period of decline following the First Southron War, which saw the Confederate States of America. Following the jackbooted regime of Black Jack Pershing and the American Warlord Era, the Generalissimo Douglas MacArthur would begin a new era for the Yankees under the flag of the Union Party. However, the crony capitalism of Pershing’s regime would survive the reign of the warlords, allowing for the rise of the American Workers' and Peasants' Liberation Army.

As the working class began their revolution against the tyranny of the Generalissimo, the British would invade their wayward son once again, beginning the Great Atlantic War before Germany destroyed Colchester and Wight with nuclear fire, As the British withdrew, the war would continue once more between MacArthur’s thugs and the American Communist Party under Edgar Hoover.

Eventually, Yankeeland would be quickly swept under the Red Tide as MacArthur fled to his African colony in Liberia with his tail between his legs. Despite the suffering caused by the “Greater America Programme” and the border conflicts with Soviet Alyeska, Chairman Hoover’s word remains supreme within his kingdom. However, the Great Helmsman is dying and the hardline “Gang of Four” under Clyde Tolson is prepared to take his place. However, a curious Senator named Richard Nixon has begun plans to crush that coterie of hardliners and reform America for the better.

The Southron People's Democratic Republic

As a nation built on the backs of slaves, the Confederacy nation was, in a political and economic sense, weak. Constantly enervated by massive slave revolts and the boll weevil infestation, it would only be a matter of time before the nation was brought to its knees. As the Second Southron War broke out, the western states would secede from the Confederacy as the North began a series of massive land grabs. Whilst Richmond burned, the rump Confederate State quickly fled to Tampa, while the Democratic Southron Republic rose in Charlton under the aegis of James F. Byrnes.

Eventually, a lengthy guerrilla war would take place against the Confederate State which saw thousands of European soldiers were sent from Savannah to Atlanta to destroy the revolution. Eventually, the European Federation would withdraw from the war and Confederate dictator, George Smathers would surrender without the aid of his puppet masters. While “Uncle Jim” was popular amongst his people and enjoyed support form Soviet Russia, he refused to become a puppet of Chairman Hoover and allow Yankee politics to dominate his nation.

However, James Byrnes is dead, his protégé, Orval Faubus has taken the reins of the nation to guide Charlton towards a more moderate path. In other news, the people’s revolution has recently spread to the Southron Republic’s sister in Appalachia as the nation remains occupied by Southron troops. However, hillbilly rebels funded by Brussels continue to plague the reunification effort as they continue their secret war. Meanwhile, Hoover’s men have grown weary of their allies’ increasing defiance and plan to begin a Third Southron War. But little do those scheming Yankees realize, the South defeated the North once and President Faubus is prepared to do so once more.

The Democratic People’s Republic of New England

After exiling MacArthur to Liberia, Chairman Hoover wasted little time spreading the revolution across the continent, beginning an occupation of New England after the surrender of King Edward. After the Atlantic War, the British would release their Dominions in the New World (with the exception of Newfoundland), allowing the COMINTERN to negotiate for a communist government to take power in New England. This communist government would be led by famed anti-British guerrilla, Joseph P. Kennedy.

After warring with the capitalist puppet in Nova Scotia, Kennedy would begin promoting an intense personality cult, branding himself as “The Supreme Leader” and building hundreds of statues of himself across the nation. Pleasure squads of young women were built to provide party officials with “entertainment” while enemies of the revolution were sent to slave away in concentration camps. And though Joe Kennedy Jr. was originally groomed to be his father’s heir, his mysterious death would allow for the rise of Robert Kennedy, commonly known as "Chairman Bob".

As the years passed, years of smoking and bad health would take its toll on the Great Leader causing the elder Joe to die from a severe heart attack. After taking power, Chairman Bob would begin taking the nation into a more radical direction, less reliant on those dammed Yankees. The policies of self-rule and mass surveillance transformed dreary New England into an Orwellian state have been embraced in full as the people’s nation transforms into a totalitarian oligarchy.

The Socialist Union of Sequoyah

After the discovery of Oklahoman oil, black and white settlers would begin expanding westward, much to the ire of the pre-established Indian tribes. During the settler crisis, thousands of Indians rose against Richmond, forcing President John Mosby to grant autonomy to the state of Sequoyah. In the years that followed, Sequoyah would be seen as a safe haven for Indians across America as the Californian gold rush and the madness of George Custer displaced hundreds of tribes on the western plains.

Following the British genocide against the Inuit and Metis peoples, thousands of Amerindians would flee to the South, seeking refuge against the Crowned Menace. Then, when the Second Southern War divided the nation, Sequoyah became an independent nation built united under the banner of socialism. However, the nation would be divided both ethnically and politically following its independence. To unite the nation, a group of soldiers overthrew the government in a bloodless coup, led by a man formerly known as William Half-Horse who calls himself Wovoka, after the prophet who gave birth to the Ghost Dance.

Soon, Sequoyah would isolate itself from the outer world and the once-wealthy nation would enter a period of decline. While brutal in crushing rebellion, the Chief is also a highly superstitious man who bathes in bison’s blood to ensure his virility and shoots his own reflection in mirrors to ward off assassinations. A land of fear and mysticism. Sequoyah remains one of the harshest dictatorships in all of the Americas.

The Christian Republic of Texas

Unlike Applachia, Sequoyah and Louisiana, Texas would declare its independence before the Second Southron War took place. Following a brief war against Mexico, the Texan people would declare their independence from Dixieland, which was officially recognized following an independence referendum. Soon after declaring independence, Mexico would launch an invasion of the Tamaulipas region, arguing that the large Apache population meant that the territory was rightfully theirs.

During the Apache Wars, President Claire Lee Chennault would declare martial law before being overthrown by Coke Stevenson, who declared the nation a republic of Christ. However, Stevenson's embrace of democracy would be his downfall as the President would be ousted by the leftist People’s Party as the brutal war to retain control over the Panama Canal drew allegations of genocide. Eventually, the Texan rivalry with Mexico would take a drastic turn following Mexico’s first nuclear test as the Texan people realized that their southern rivals could easily drown them in nuclear fire.

Eventually, Texan democracy would end once more following a military coup that saw the ascension of Hank Grover to the office of President. As of now, Texas has completed developing its first nuclear reactors and is currently on the way to building an atomic bomb. While Texas and Mexico remain bitter rivals, the two nations are surprisingly alike in many ways as the caste system remains a prominent force in both Houston and Tenochtitlan.

Democratic Louisiana

In Democratic Louisiana, thousands are killed at the hands of the Baton Rouge regime, which seeks to return the nation to an agrarian socialist society. Under the oppressive rule of the faceless Organization, the people are forced to slave away in the Killing Fields. But behind this cruel mask lies Edwin Edwards, the young revolutionary who overthrew the Long Dynasty. During the Second Southron War, Louisiana would fall to rot as European bombing campaigns and the reign of Earl the Mad destroyed the nation from within.

During the infamous destruction of New Orleans, Baton Rouge cadres would be ordered to burn the city to the ground, seeking to flood the last remnants of the "bourgeoise industrial cultures of Louisana". Rouge paramilitaries patrol the bayou, hunting for those who dare defy the endless wrath of the Organization. Thousands of civilians are forced out of their homes and executed for crimes of espionage, defiance against the government, or simply wearing glasses. The last scions of the Long dynasty flee overseas, seeking to avoid the chaos which has consumed their homeland.

And with so many lives lost under his rule. Edwin Edwards retains his iron grip over Louisana, seeking to build his utopian society of villages where one may do as they please, no matter the coast. Despite the horrors, his regime remains recognized by the American Republic and Europe, seeing him as a useful counterbalance against the Southroners. But as President Faubus sees this chaos erupting from across the border, the Generals of the Southron People's Army have been informed of a new plan. A plan to end the chaos of Baton Rouge and bring order to the people of Louisana.
