The 1828 War, as it is known in Louisianne, or The War of Louisiannan Agression as it is known in the NAL began as a border skirmish that ended with Louisianne's upstart republican government being put in its place by the older, more powerful North American League.


The tensions that caused the War of 1828 began nearly a decade before, as France, who remained to some minor extent in charge of affairs in Louisianne, flexed their muscles.

The NAL and France had been long arguing over the Mobile region, and France had been eyeing the Ouisconsin region as well, seeking to unite their former territories by a land-bridge. Some proponents in France suggested that they strip away the entire southern set of provinces, taking Cherokee and Jacobia as their own, and further padding the French presence on the Gulf of Mejico.

France revoked deposit rights to NAL shipping, which escalated the already tenuous situation to fever-pitch.

The War

The first battles of the war were fought by diplomats toward the end of 1827, and the first shot was fired in 1828 as Louisiannan forces invaded across the Mississippi into both Ouisconsin and Mobile.

The Ouisconsin Alliance was formed in 1828 in response to the French invasion of the region. The French invasion and siege of Fort Starving Rock is one of the more notable campaigns of the war. Fort Starving Rock was the main muster site for the Bodewadmi soldiers. The French siege of the fort was short-lived, and from Starving Rock the Bodewadmi drove the French back down the Illinoise River and, together with allied Othaaki and Newcomers, recaptured Peoria.

This war was short-lived, as Napoleon sought to control the war from a distance and had inept commanders. The NAL on the other hand had its local leadership and quickly drove back the Louisiannan forces, occupying former Louisiannan territory to the Mizouri river and the entire Préfecture of Nouvelle Orléans.


The results of this war brought about the independence of Louisianne, no longer accessible to France as a viable colony. With the defeat Napoleon threw away desires of a world-spanning French empire, and severed ties with the infant nation. The Louisiannan Directory ruled prior to this time, and the results of this war brought about the end of the Directoire and then the short-lived Consulat Louisiannais and induced the Summer Revolution which brought the end to the Consulat and enstated the government we know today.

The occupation was short for New Orleans, which was returned to Louisianne under treaty from the NAL, but the Northern districts of Les Plaines were kept. A treaty was signed and the Mississippi was regarded as international waters, a later agreement doing the same to the Mizouri.

The willing acceptance of the Mormons, who had been so mistreated by the NAL was a thorn in the NAL's s side, a show of passive-aggressivism by Louisianne, saying 'an enemy of yours is a friend of mine.'

This war also helped develop the cooperative military policy needed to mobilize the disparate provinces of the NAL.
