    Issues:

    Ethnicities
    Northern Anglo-American: You're an American of primarily English stock and come from New England or the Mid-Atlantic states of New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Pennsylvania and Maryland. You might have been born in the Thirteen Colonies or in the Home Isles, but either way you are now here, standing alongside your fellow Patriots in arms against the Crown you once served. You are especially likely to have been a merchant and/or naval officer prior to the war; your political views are likely to stray towards the radical end of the spectrum, but favor centralization (ex. sweeping federal powers, a strong standing military in peacetime, taxes ranging from moderate to borderline oppressive, a national bank) over the decentralization preferred by the Westerners; and you are likely to be a more independent-minded Protestant as opposed to an Anglican with the serial numbers filed off Episcopalian.

    Southern Anglo-American: You're an American of primarily English stock and come from the Southern states of Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, or Georgia. You might have been born in the Thirteen Colonies or in the Home Isles, but either way you are now here, standing alongside your fellow Patriots in arms against the Crown you once served. You are especially likely to have been a major planter prior to the war, the mirror image of the landed gentry across the Atlantic; your political views are likely to stray towards the conservative end of the spectrum in contrast to your more radical Northern and Western hopeful-countrymen; and you are likely to be an Episcopalian, which is to say, the closest you can get to your traditional Anglicanism while fighting the head of that particular church.

    Western Anglo-American: You're an American of primarily English stock and come from the rugged & sparsely-populated Western frontier, which has yet to be organized into formal states. You might have been born in the Thirteen Colonies or in the Home Isles, but either way you are now here, standing alongside your fellow Patriots in arms against the Crown you once served. You are especially likely to have been a soldier or yeoman farmer before the war; your political views are likely to stray towards the radical end of the spectrum, but favor decentralization (ex. a weak federal gov't, a reliance on state militias, low or even no taxes, multiple competing independent banks) instead of the centralizing policies favored by the Northeasterners; and you are likely to be a more independent-minded Protestant as opposed to an Anglican with the serial numbers filed off Episcopalian.

    Irish: You're an Irish-American, likely driven here by the policies of the British government back on the Emerald Isle; alternatively, your ancestors fled here for the same reason, and you were born in the Thirteen Colonies. Either way, hating British tyranny is practically your national sport, and for good reason....or well, it would be if there was an Irish nation, but since an independent Eire is unlikely in the foreseeable future you'll settle for the next best thing and fight alongside the Patriots for a new homeland. You're especially likely to be a Catholic, which means you most likely hail from Maryland or one of the other Mid-Atlantic states such as New York, but politically you tend towards the radical end of the spectrum, though whether you support centralization or not is entirely up in the air.

    Scots-Irish: You're an American of mixed Scottish and Irish lineage, and your ancestors would have had an easier time under British rule than your purely Irish cousins. Nevertheless, for whatever reason you have joined the rebellion against King George. You're likely to be a soldier or yeoman farmer hailing from the Southern states or the Western frontier, especially the Appalachian area where you've been stuck since you or your ancestors decided servicing the whims of the Tidewater planters was a bad idea; you're likely to favor decentralizing policies, but you can well be a conservative in other matters such as slavery; and you are almost certain to be a hardline independent Protestant.

    Dutch: You're a Dutchman, whether a recent immigrant or one born in the Thirteen Colonies; in the latter case, your family may have reached back to the 17th century, when Dutch settlers first built New Amsterdam - and now you have a chance to relive their conflict with the English, only hopefully this time you & your people will win instead. Your people are concentrated primarily in New York and the Mid-Atlantic states, particularly the former New Netherland colony. You are likely to either be either a more conservative patroon, essentially the Mid-Atlantic Dutch-flavored equivalent to Southern planters who's more reliant on nominally-free tenants than actual slaves, or a liberal-minded merchant tycoon following in the footsteps of his trading ancestors, and to follow a Protestant creed.

    French: You're a Frenchman. Whether you were born in the Thirteen Colonies or moved there, you've opted to align with the colonials against your forefathers' (and possibly yours, if you fought in the French & Indian War) traditional enemies over in Blighty. Depending on where you are you could be a soldier who fought in the French & Indian War, a successful merchant if you're up North or a Southern planter with Huguenot roots. You can hail from any of the Eastern states, from Massachusetts to Georgia, but either way you're likely to be a Catholic or Huguenot, and to carry traditionally pro-centralist but otherwise moderate political leanings.

    German: You're a German. Well, it makes some sense for you to be in the Thirteen Colonies, after all the Royal Family themselves are Germans! Nevertheless, you're fighting with the Patriots for whatever reason - any feelings of ethnic solidarity with the House of Hanover have long faded by now. You're more likely to hail from the Northern or Mid-Atlantic states than the South and to have been a soldier or pauper before the war's outbreak, and have plenty of freedom in terms of religious choices; Prussian Protestant or Austrian Catholic, it's all up to you.

    African-American: You're a free black man. Whether you were born free or became that way (legally or illegally), you've thrown your lot in firmly with the Patriots against the British authorities who have ruthlessly exploited your people for centuries (granted, a good number of said exploiters are Patriots too, but hey). You are especially likely to hail from (or at least have fled/moved to) New England, where anti-slavery sentiments are strongest, and to follow any religion save Enlightenment Rationalism; if nothing else, your people are known for their fierce religious devotion even in the face of systematic oppression. You are especially unlikely to get along with any planters regardless of ethnicity or creed, and though you will heavily favor radical politics & can be of a centralist or anti-centralist tendency, the nationwide abolition of slavery in whatever country arises from this mess (enforced by gunpoint if necessary) is extremely likely to be your highest priority.

    Native American: You're a Native American from a pro-Patriot tribe, such as the Tuscarora or Oneida. It may grieve you to have to fight against your kinsmen, many of whom have remained loyal to the British, but for whatever reason you have decided that siding with the colonists is the best way forward for your people as a whole. You're especially likely to hail from the Western Frontier for obvious reasons, to follow one of the Protestant sects or your traditional Native Spirituality, and to favor decentralization alongside radical or conservative politics. Whether you define yourself as a conservative or radical though, the settlement of new treaties forbidding further white migrations into your lands should be your highest long-term priority, for obvious reasons.

    Religions
    Episcopalian: You are an Episcopalian. Prior to the outbreak of war you were an Anglican of variable devotion, but since it's rather difficult to continue calling yourself that while you're making war upon the British King, you've opted to transfer your prayers and oaths to the cause of the Revolution while still preserving as much of the central hierarchy & traditions of the Anglican Communion as you can. You are likely to be a moderate or conservative, and especially likely to be wealthy and/or Southern.

    Lutheran/Reformed: You're what one could call a 'normal' Protestant, or in other words, part of the religious majority of the Thirteen Colonies - Lutherans, Presbyterians, Baptists, what have you. You are likely to have come from a poor or middle-class background in contrast to the primarily upper-class Episcopalians, and to favor moderate or radical policies. You may believe that any future central government should be weak, as surely as your church does not rely on any intricate hierarchy, or you may not allow your faith to have any place in your politics at all; you are generally not likely to be as fanatical as your Congregationalist cousins, to be sure.

    Congregationalist/Calvinist: You are part of one of America's many Congregationalist or Calvinist churches and sects. You are an heir to the Puritan tradition of the 16th and 17th centuries, the same zealously disciplined men and women who set up communities such as the ever-famous Plymouth. You are almost assuredly a zealous believer, perhaps even an outright fanatic who wants to see everyone else converted or destroyed, but one who favors the same decentralizing tendencies mirroring the lack of organized hierarchy in your faith. You're not at all likely to get along with those of other faiths, especially not the Papists you fully expect to sell the Revolution out to the Roman Antichrist or those supposed 'Episcopalians' who are in truth Anglicans.

    Liberal Christian: You belong to one of the newer, more liberal Christian sects, such as the Society of Friends (Quakers), Unitarianism or the Universalist Church that stresses universal reconciliation (the idea that all things, regardless of whatever sins they've committed, will eventually return to God's fold). These churches are most popular in the Northern and Western United States, as opposed to the Episcopalian hierarchical church or fire-and-brimstone sects that dominate in the South. Needless to say, as a follower of these liberal churches, you're likely to have liberal political beliefs yourself, chiefly the abolition of slavery in the United States.

    Catholic: You're a Catholic, a relative rarity in America at this time. Back in Britain you would have been oppressed into the ground, but here you have a little more breathing room...despite the desperate wishes of the likes of those Congregationalists to shut you down just the same. You may be an ordinary believer or a zealot, but either way you're likely to be Irish or French, to favor government protections for your faith and perhaps even for other religious minorities, and to have little love for those close-minded Congregationalist fanatics, truly Cromwell and his Puritan boors reborn.

    Native Spirituality: You follow the spiritual traditions of your people, the same traditions they were practicing well before the strange white invaders came with their One God and His Son. You might be animists, or you might have tribal shamans, or what have you - it all really depends on which tribe you come from. Either way, you've got to be a Native American to have this religious background.

    Deism: You're a Deist. You believe in some kind of Supreme Being, but it sure isn't the omnipotent and omniscient Abrahamic God - surely miracles, the Trinity and such are the work of less sophisticated minds than yours. You don't count on preachers to make your arguments for you, but at most you proselytize to your fellow intellectuals behind closed doors in salons. You're marginally more likely to be a Southern Thinker than a Northern one, those arrogant fools who go too far and decry the existence of a deity in entirety.

    Enlightenment Rationalism: You follow no creed, in truth an agnostic or outright atheist. How can you be expected to follow something you have no physical evidence for? God and the gods are for the superstitious commons to follow, not a man of reason like you, no - if there's anything you believe in, it's human reason & will, and (probably) the physical universe around you. You're more likely to be a Northern Thinker than a Southern one, those weak-kneed fools who can't seem to live without the concept of any deity to cling to.

    Occupations
    Merchant Tycoon: You are a successful businessman, whether you specialize in one area (such as the construction of ships or the trade of luxury silks) or you're a generalist merchant with a thumb in every pie, and turned a considerable profit every year from Atlantic and/or inland trade routes...until the British started locking down every harbor. You may also have previously served in the navy. Merchant Tycoons have a baseline income of $5000 & make an additional $3000 per year for every trade agreement the US makes with a foreign nation. Merchant Tycoons also have a bonus to commanding fleets.

    Planter: You're the owner of a decently-sized to massive plantation and at least 20 slaves, and combined with the likelihood of your family also being planters (possibly all the way back to the 17th century), you are effectively the closest any colonial will get to the landowning aristocrats back home. You may even have had a minor title prior to the outbreak of war. Cotton, tobacco, sugar, indigo, rice - all of it makes you a great profit, and the best thing is you don't even have to actually lift a finger to rake in all those pounds when you have so many others to do it for you! Planters have a baseline income of $15,000 pounds & 1d4 X $1000 per year (representing that year's harvest). To be under Patriot control more than half of the provinces in a state must be in rebel hands. Planters also have a bonus to commanding cavalry.

    Religious Leader: You're a preacher of any religion besides Deism or Enlightenment Rationalism (and the latter isn't even really a religion anyway). You've been spreading the Good Word to the masses for much of your life, now it's time to spread some revolutionary fervor instead. You could be a Protestant preacher, an Episcopalian bishop, a Jesuit still hoping that the Holy Father will eventually rescind his suppression of your order, or a Native shaman, whatever. Religious Leaders gain $1000 + 1d6 X $500 per year (representing donations from your flock).

    Soldier: You're a career soldier. You are almost certain to have fought in the French & Indian War or even in the Seven Years' War in Europe, and possibly even older wars than these depending on your age. You have a baseline income of $4000, Congress can also opt to give you bonuses for battlefield successes or as political favors.

    Thinker: You are the lifeblood of the Enlightenment, a well-to-do scientist and/or philosopher who alone (in your head, at least) holds the key to the future. Unfortunately, the war does put a damper on your ability to trade thoughts & witticisms with your similarly egg-headed friends, but on the other hand it also provides you with a great opportunity to finally make your ideals into reality. Like Religious Leaders, Thinkers have a baseline income of $2000 pounds per year + 1d4 X $200 per year.

    Farmer: You are a yeoman farmer, likely living in the Appalachians or beyond. You may have hoped to continue living in peace (aside from the occasional Indian raid) but now's the time to put such hopes behind you, and put your frontiersmanship to good use in service to the Revolution instead. Farmers make a baseline $1000 per year + 1d4 X $1000 (representing that year's harvest in their home state), and have a bonus to commanding militia or light infantry in particular.

    Pauper: You are part of the urban poor. You've experienced homelessness, starvation and the contempt of those above you first-hand, at best you've gotten semi-steady jobs as a menial worker for one of the great merchants (up North), a planter's farmhand (down South) or another farmer's contract labor (out West) but even then you've had to live from paycheck to paycheck, but now you've somehow catapulted yourself to the forefront of the Revolution & have a chance to change everything for the better. Paupers make a baseline $500.

    Positions
    President of the United States: You're the elected head of state & government of the US, combining political leadership and a military role as Commander-in-Chief in your person, and you must face an election every 4 years. In addition to your aforementioned responsibilities, you wield the right to appoint your own cabinet with the Senate's approval and the power of executive order - presidential decrees that have the full force of the law behind them, which allow you to direct officers and agencies of the executive branch without first running through Congress. You make an additional $5000 per turn as long as you're the POTUS.

    Vice-President of the United States: You're the above's #2 man, and next in line should he die in office. Under the current Constitution, you aren't specifically voted for, but instead must be the man with the second-greatest number of votes to become VP. You're also President of the Senate and have the right to cast the deciding vote in deadlocked senatorial votes. You make an additional $3500 as long as you're VP.

    Cabinet Member: You're a member of the executive cabinet, appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate. You could be the Secretary of State (foreign affairs minister), the Treasury (finance minister), War (military recruitments minister), etc. You make an additional $2500 as long as you're holding a cabinet position.

    Senator: You're a sitting member of the United States Senate, the more prestigious upper house of Congress. Your powers include the approval or disapproval of any treaty made with a foreign power before it can be formally ratified, the right to confirm presidential appointments to the executive cabinet, the right to try officials impeached by the House, and of course the right to approve or disapprove of any legislation passed in the House. You aren't actually directly elected by the people but instead by state legislatures, and while for simplicity purposes you'll always be allowed to retain your seat except in cases of forced removal or a landslide defeat, you should still campaign for your faction in the Senate elections every six years to make sure this chamber is filled with as many of your allies as possible. Senators make an additional $2000.

    Representative: You're a sitting member of the House of Representatives, the lower house of Congress. Your powers include passing domestic legislation & revenue bills, initiating the impeachment process of government officials, and electing the President in case of deadlock in the Electoral College. Unlike the Senate, you really are directly elected by your constituents, and while for simplicity purposes you will be allowed to hold your seat except in special cases such as a landslide defeat for your party or a forced removal, you should still campaign for your faction/party in the House elections every two years to make sure that this chamber is filled with as many of your allies as possible. Representatives make an additional $1000.

    General/Admiral: You're a military commander, duh. Note that your commands or lack thereof depend entirely on the will of Congress - screw with them as General Eggers did during the Revolutionary War, and they can easily demote you or even vote to have you tried (and possibly executed) by the Supreme Court. You get a salary of $1500 as long as you have at least one command. This is also the only position available to characters aligned with the Whiskey Rebellion at game start, for obvious reasons.

    Factions
    Pro-Administration Clique/Federalist Party
    Goals: National unity; a strong or overbearing federal government; industrialization; high tariffs

    High Federalists
    You're a part of the more extreme wing of the Federalist faction. As the Articles of Confederation have just proven, it cannot be denied that limited government is an unworkable pipe-dream that does far more harm than good - so you advocate an extremely powerful federal government, exploiting as many constitutional loopholes & implied powers as possible, to safeguard and improve the lot of the American nation. You absolutely support high tariffs and/or business subsidies to protect & expand domestic industry, a national bank to manage the nation's finances properly, and the expansion of national infrastructure. The agrarian ideal? Psh, that's so 13th century - iron foundries, textile mills, banks and businesses, national roads, these are the future of America. You may not be totally averse to at least pretending to work with the common man - quantity is a quality in & of itself after all - but you're not all that likely to view them in a positive light, and in any case you firmly believe that you & others like you know what's best for them, so any opposition to your collective genius should be crushed under the wheel of progress and the boot of big government. There can be no compromise with the Anti-Administration clique/Democratic-Republicans, least of all those mad Arch-Democrats who would usher in a new Dark Age of anarchy and economic collapse.

    Low Federalists
    You're a member of the moderate wing of the Federalist faction. The Articles of Confederation have shown you all the folly of weak government, it is true - but that is no reason to make the federal government too powerful, although you certainly still lean on the 'it should definitely be stronger' side than not. You support tariffs that would make planters grumble, but not cripple them; you wish to promote the growth of American industry with the least possible harm to farmers; and a national bank is a sound idea, but the market should still be open to smaller banking firms that wish to compete. You may still view the mob as uneducated hoi polloi who don't know what's best for them, but like the High Federalists you aren't above alliances of convenience with them, and in any case also like the High Federalists you really do think your policies are what's best for them. You are less averse to compromise than your 'higher' peers.

    Anti-Administration Clique/Democratic-Republican Party
    Goals: States' rights; a weak federal government or reversion to the Articles of Confederation; agrarianism; low tariffs

    National Republicans
    You're part of the more moderate wing of the Democratic-Republican faction. So the Articles of Confederation proved to be unworkable, fair enough - but that's no reason for a federal government that's even an inch bigger than absolutely necessary. Nobody should get to play around with the concept of 'implied powers', for one thing, and for another things like a central bank is already too much; a government should have no role beyond national defense (that's defense, not expanding the country's borders, mind you...well, unless it's the unsettled Frontier), handling foreign affairs and protecting interstate commerce. You may prefer agrarian economics, but you aren't dead set against industrialism either, and are willing to accommodate moderate to low but not nonexistent tariffs for brief intervals of time at the least. You're not above working with the mob either, but at the same time you may well look down on them (ie. as useful idiots) in a manner highly similar to the Federalists as well. You don't have any problem with compromising with the Federalists.

    Arch-Democrats
    You're a part of the extreme wing of the Democratic-Republicans, and damn proud of it. The Articles of Confederation were at the least sound in principle, or even a totally workable idea that would have succeeded gloriously if only we gave them more time! The federal government is already too strong - just its ability to set nationwide tariffs is already too vile - and whoever dreamed up the poisonous notion of 'implied powers' should be thrown out of a window ASAP. In the spirit of the revolution, the USA should become a nation of independent yeoman farmers, not adopt yet more of those satanic mudsills they call 'foundries' and 'mills'! You alone can truly claim to stand for the common man, not like these other wannabe aristocrats (even your lily-livered comrades who call themselves 'moderate' Democratic-Republicans, as if moderation when it comes to pursuing & safeguarding liberty is a virtue) who would at best pretend to guide the people with one hand and plot to stab them in the back with the other. Compromise with the Federalists is something best left to those unmanly 'Republicans', and the mere thought of even negotiating with the self-righteous elitist 'High Federalists' - they who would create an American monarchy if they had the chance, no doubt - makes your stomach turn above all.

    Issues
    As a rule, the leftmost position is the most Federalist, the rightmost one is the most Anti-Federalist. Slavery is the biggest exception, since it is totally possible to be a Federalist slaver (Charles Pinckney) or an abolitionist Anti-Federalist (Aaron Burr).

    Central Government: Sweeping federal powers-->balance of powers-->Weak, if not nominal federal gov't-->confederation of independent states

    Tariffs: High tariffs-->Moderate tariffs-->Low tariffs-->Free trade

    Bank of the United States: Keep the Bank-->Destroy the Bank

    Slavery: Total, uncompensated abolition-->total compensated abolition-->state-by-state compensated abolition-->deport slaves to Africa-->no abolition-->expansion of slavery into the Frontier

    Military: Strong standing military-->balanced military & state militias-->small standing military, reliance on state militias-->no standing military at all, exclusive reliance on state militias

    Foreign relations: Pro-British-->realpolitik, take opportunities as they come & align with Great Powers as needed-->isolationism & inward perfection (actually, this could also be supported by members of either camp)-->export the revolution no matter the costs-->Pro-French

    Sebastian Rondelle


    Name: Sebastian Rondelle
    Date of birth & Age: October 14th, 1738 (55)
    Home State: Maryland
    Ethnicity: French
    Religion: Catholic
    Occupation : Planter
    Profession : Senator
    Allegiance : USA
    Money: 21,000
    Family :
    Octavien Rondelle, age 27 - Son
    Laurent Rondelle, age 21 - Son
    Cecilia Rondelle, age 16 - Daughter
    Befitting his former status as a nobleman, Sebastian has a slight degree of arrogance when encountering those who could be considered of lower rank than him, while is at least cordial to those who are his equal or better in social ranking in the colonies. Usually relatively calm when discussing things as well, the only sign of displeasure on his behalf being a change of his tone of voice to one of scorn and disdain for the other person(people) he is with. In politics and war, he is relatively reserved, preferring to observe and form a more cohesive plan rather than rush blindly in or make a decision in haste. After the Revolutionary War, his desire for revenge against the British sated, Rondelle has changed his opinion to a more neutral view, but still disdainful of them.

    Biography :
    The eldest son of Octavien Rondelle, a Canadien-born nobleman holding the rank of Vicomte whose ancestors had been relatively successful fur traders with the Huron tribes, leading to becoming moderately influential citizens of Quebec and the eventual grant of a relatively decent sized estate outside of Quebec in 1689. In his youth, his father was a officer serving in King George's War and then Father Le Loutre's war, leaving Sebastian to be raised primarily by his mother and uncle, rarely seeing his father. Due to the relatively rural position of their estate, encounters with other children of his rank were rare, leaving him to play with the children of the servants, generally bossing them around due to the fear of reprisal against their parents should the children have ever injured him or otherwise.

    His education was the best a moderately affluent noble family could afford for their son, learning the history of Quebec, basic dueling skills, military tactics, how to act in a manner befitting a noble in nearly every situation, horse riding, and how to act when dealing with the natives, to ensure the fur trade ties the family still has would not be endangered by Sebastian offending the chiefs or elders of the tribes they have agreements with. In 1754, at the onset of the French and Indian War, Sebastian would leave the estate to join his father's command staff after Octavien purchased a commission for his son, or through his influence with the Governor-General Michel-Ange Duquesne, whom a fort would be named after and later abandoned to the British. Said fort was the first assignment Sebastian joined his father on, chasing off a Virginian force sent to build a fort that would be knocked down and replaced with Fort Duquesne. Roughly a year after the French had chased off the Virginians, the British sent a military expedition against the fort, where Sebastian would see combat for the first time and the effectiveness of Indian tactics against European tactics he was told by his uncle the French and their enemies would use.

    In early 1756, the regiment of which the father and son were officers in would be moved from the Ohio Valley to serve under the arriving General Louis-Joesph de Montcalm, where they would remain for the rest of the war. Sebastian, learning a bit more about Indian tactics would sometimes accompany them or some colonial forces who used their tactics on raids, and the only other notable battles he would be involved in was Carillon, and then at the Plains of Abraham, where Montcalm and the british general were killed in action. After this, Sebastian would spend the rest of the war until the Governor-General's surrender fighting in a Canadien and allied Indian group of raiders operating in Quebec. After the war, his father fell ill and would die after several weeks of battling the illness, and Sebastian would become the last Rondelle Vicomte for around two years, until the first British governor-general removed him and several other French nobles to promote their own to the newly vacated positions, offering far less than the land was worth in compensation.

    Unable to afford passage back to France, Sebastian, his family, and remaining household move to Maryland reluctantly, where he was able to buy a small sized estate to live on, although the land was relatively poor and while a small profit would be made from it over time, it was never more than just enough to subside on. Swearing an oath before god to avenge this disgrace, Sebastian has bided his time, slowly moving into revolutionary circles in the colonies. Every year, on the day they were evicted from their home, his son asks him if it is time to strike at the British, to which Sebastian has always said no until now. With the declaration of independence, Sebastian has dusted off his old officer's sword, uniform, and bought a new pistol before making his way towards the Continental Army or Congress, whichever he encountered first to act on the oath he swore slightly over a decade. ago. He would spend the majority of the revolution over in France, negotiating the French and Spanish entry to the war along with trade agreements with both powers and the Dutch Republic that remained out of the war in the League of Armed Neutrality.

    After the war, he would return to his estate and turn it into a moderately successful plantation using sharecropping over slaves for the labor, and continue to pursue philosophical discussions with some American intellectuals after meeting with some of the notable French ones in between his appearances at the court of Versailles, and a interest in architecture that would lead to him first designing an improvement to the town he lived in, and then be appointed to be Chief Architect in the building of Concordia, of which he completed the planning for in 1791. He would also be elected to the Senate as a Federalist in the first election.

    Octavien Rondelle


    Date of birth & Age: May 11th, 1766 (27)
    Home State: Maryland
    Ethnicity: French
    Religion: Catholic
    Profession : Merchant Tycoon
    Allegiance : USA
    Position :
    General
    Money: -

    Personality : The eldest son of Senator Rondelle, Octavien could be said to be similar to his father in behavior, typically appearing calm even if agitated by someone or something, and holding (to a lesser degree than his father) a aristocratic sense of superiority over those lower than him in standing. Along with being the merchant of the family who handles any shipments of the estate's products and any imports, Octavien has also learned to think somewhat quickly, as hesitation could lead to a missed deal.

    Name: Jack Eggers
    Date of Birth: 2/7/1746 (46)
    Ethnicity: Scots-Irish
    Religion: Baptist (Reformed)
    Occupation: Thinker
    Home State: Kaintuck Territory (former), Virginia
    Allegiance: USA
    Position: Secretary of State
    Faction: National Republican (Anti-Federalist)
    Money: ?
    Personality: Formerly alcoholic younger brother of "ol' Milt," as he calls his older brother. Polite and reserved when listening, but very wordy and occasionally sarcastic when speaking, he has cleaned himself up considerably, and like his older brother has now sworn off alcohol.
    Biography: He grew up in the same circumstances as the elder Eggers brother, however rather than becoming a responsible and virtuous man of the world after the eldest Eggers boy's death like his brother, he became an awful scoundrel. Kicked out of the house before age 15, and refused by the Indians, who had heard of his misadventures among women and with drink, he immediately set off for town. He made himself known as an infamous gambler, speculator, and wife-stealer in his day, but eventually due to financial ruin brought on by crossing speculative paths with a Mr. Hammit Poole, he wound up wandering the streets of Atlanta and Charleston, and there became an alcoholic. Finding his way eventually to Richmond, he gained some government contacts through his famous carousing, but he was once again ruined, this time by speculation on the Dutch tea trade - which was, of course, eliminated by British law. This loss led him at last to the cause of the Patriots, who have given him something to fight for. Since moving back to Charleston, he attempted (to little avail, but with noticeable effort) to clean himself up, and was appointed, much to his surprise, to represent North Carolina in the Continental Congress. After years of serving in the Revolution as a more moderate voice of reason, the North Carolinians felt he did not adequately represent their interests, so he was removed from office shortly before the end of the war. He moved to Virginia, where he began writing and thinking about the revolution and its causes, drawing heavily from Locke and Montesquieu. He became an early proponent of a federal system wherein the federal government has specific but limited powers, and was thus chosen to represent Virginia in the later Constitutional Convention, where his writings were a heavy inspiration for the shape of the government and where he became known as a good, level-headed compromiser. Upon the election of President Poole, he was appointed Secretary of State in recognition of his influence on the American system and as a counterweight to to Federalist Secretary of the Treasury Massie.
    Issues:
    Central Government: Weak, if not nominal federal gov't
    Tariffs: Free trade
    Slavery: state-by-state compensated abolition
    Military: small standing military, reliance on state militias
    Foreign relations: Non-interventionism

    Name: Charles Milton Eggers
    Date of Birth: 2/7/1740 (52)
    Ethnicity: Scots-Irish
    Religion: Baptist (Reformed)
    Occupation: Farmer
    Position: General
    Home State: Kaintuck Territory
    Allegiance: USA
    Faction: Anti-Federalist (Arch-Democrat)
    Money: ?
    Personality: Eggers is a man of few words in most circles. He says little, has little time for idle talk, and ensures that what he does say is the best course of action (a fact he is always willing to defend). He has always been dedicated to his family and church, and now to his country. The only times he speaks up are in defense of his beliefs, but when he does he becomes a fiery defender of them. He is relatively easygoing and calm, taking a long time to anger, however when his sense of justice is offended and he is angered he is vicious in his wrath. Due to his brother dying a poor drunk out in a field, he refuses to touch hard drink, and doesn't think anyone should. He has instituted a ban on hard liquor in his militia, which his officers don't like, though he doesn't enforce it on the regular soldiers.
    Biography: Born to poor farmers who were themselves born to poor farmers and on ad nauseam for forever (including in Ireland and Scotland), Eggers grew up to be, you guessed it, a poor farmer. His family has lived in the Appalachians since they were discovered - they were some of the first settlers in Kentucky. Because of this family history, Eggers' name carries some small weight among the Kentuckians. However, as a young man, due to some troubles with his brother and a woman which Eggers refuses to elaborate on, Eggers was forced to flee his home and live among the Cherokee. During his years in the wilderness, Eggers learned the lays of the land, the Cherokee language and culture, and the Indian healing remedies so many Europeans had heard about. During this time, Eggers took a Cherokee bride, the daughter of a chief, made a name for himself, and developed a fiercely independent spirit. When the Revolution began, this spirit prompted him to join, despite having no military experience. Though his family, being generally peaceful and non-interventionist, refused to participate in the French and Indian War ("We moved here to get away from Britain, not to make it bigger" was their justification), the Revolution's emphasis on freedom an individualism led Eggers to not be able to resist the draw of war. He gathered a small militia from the farms around his family's, and began to fight a successful guerrilla war against the small amount of colonial authority in the region. As word of his militia's success spread, more men flocked to his banner. However, the Tories formed their own militia, and since the outbreak of the Revolution Eggers's militia has battled the Tories, with varying degrees of success. In the Revolution, Eggers and his militia initially continued their war in the West. However, upon the loss of Philadelphia, Eggers marched his men out East to fight the British. While encamped in Richmond, and having heard nothing from Congress about the war, Eggers entered Congress, demanding they focus on the war or turn the leadership of it over to someone who will. While Eggers was ultimately forced to leave Congress and demoted from Major General to General, he escaped the noose. Congress afterward did in fact concentrate on the war and appoint a Commander-in-Chief, and so while regretting his actions Eggers does in a way see his actions as a success. For the rest of the war, he and his old militia fought a guerrilla war of containment against Howe alongside General Bohannon, attempting to out-maneuver Howe long enough for McIntyre to be reinforced for an offensive campaign. During these years of wilderness warfare, Eggers reclaimed his name (at least among the army and the people of the south), and was able to retire somewhat honorably after the war. In the years after the war, Eggers discovered that he had in fact had a son years prior due to the very lapse of judgement which had caused him to live with the Indians, and that son had lived in a nearby Indian village the whole time. Eggers, bored with farm life after the war, gave the family farm to his son, who had become a very great man, and took up his wife and moved into the Indian village she hailed from. They had some children, but they died young, and due to Eggers's time at war they were too old to have more after their kids died, leaving Eggers's illegitimate son his only heir. When the Waxhaws Rebellion broke out, the rebels squabbled with the Indians in Eggers's village, which angered Eggers. He also learned that his son had joined the militia and had won a name for himself fighting the rebels; Eggers decided that, though his own career was in the toilet, if he could reclaim his name, he could help his son overcome any stigma from his father's past. In order to save his village and help his son's cause, Eggers gathered some of his old veterans and some Indian volunteers and led a daring raid on the town where the "president" of the Waxhaws Rebels resided, capturing his family and scattering the rebels in the night. Eggers then presented the family to the governor in exchange for a peaceful accord which would protect the Indians' land. Following this raid, Eggers realized that he missed warfare. He decided to start his militia back up with a few others who missed "the old days" and make it their business to protect their farms and the nearby villages. When the Whiskey Rebellion broke out, Eggers heard that his son had joined the Federals to put it down. Once again he has taken up arms to help his son by washing his name even more, and hopes that his continued service will someday make amends enough that his son can prosper in his own ventures. Furthermore, in his retirement, Eggers has realized that he started a precedent of thinking one could change matters by initiating military force against Congress. Not only has he come to the realization that this would cause the United States to be a failed experiment, but he also sees that his own actions started this precedent and partially blames himself, which can again come back to hurt his son later. So he has petitioned Congress for a commission to fight the Whiskey Rebels and set the wrongs he started moving right.
    Issues: He stays out of politics, do you really think his opinion would be taken seriously?

    Robert Percival Braxford


    Name:
    Robert Percival Braxford
    Date of Birth:
    1738, February 5th, 54 years old at 1792
    Ethnicity:
    Northern Anglo-American
    Religion:
    Presbyterian (Not exactly devout)
    Occupation:
    Merchant Tycoon
    Home State:
    Massachusetts
    Allegiance:
    USA
    Position:
    Senator
    Money:
    Starting: 7.000
    Faction: Pro Administration Clique/ Low Federalist
    Personality:
    Robert is much different then his brother although they get along fine, he is soft spoken, has a knack for lying and is willing to commit almost anything in order to advance his business. As heartless as he may be with other people however he holds his family and close friends in high regard and would never betray them if he had another choice. Not exactly patriotic he is a Cogressmen both for it's benefits and to make sure no policies that are not to his favour pass. A men used to finery he took it as a shock when his company went bankrupt but he rapidly picked himself up selling weapons and provisions for the Army, he is by no means a heavy drinker and prefers to stay sober so he can think clearly. Percival is a greedy man but not exactly an evil one so he takes no pleasure in any foul acts he commits, but does them all the same. The younger Braxford's lack of scruples and business savvy have allowed him to rise far fast.

    Biography:
    Robert Percival Braxford was also born to Peter Francis Braxford, who was a moderately wealthy and respected trader in Boston running a small sea trade company. Compared to his brother John he was a much worthier successor to his father's company showing a great knack for trading ever since he was young. Although he did not quite share his father's work ethics Robert loved his family and decided to stay in Boston when his brother was shipped off to Britain, he worked for many years as his father right hand man in the company and when Peter grew too old to properly manage it he picked up the torch. Robert married another of New England's trading upper class, Anne Bowder, and had four children over the course of the years the boys Henry and Patrick and the girls Mary and Victoria.

    Robert's lack of work ethics have allowed him to explore his workers like only a true capitalist would but he abhors slavery, knowing that a free man is much more profitable then a shackled one for him. The Braxfords of Boston lived well for many years and he reestablished contact with his brother when he moved into town, that was not too last long although. When the British started imposing new taxes on Colonial trade Robert started getting considerably poorer and that coupled with his lavish lifestyle drove him to live with his brother for a while, and a great hate for the British. A blessing for him was the revolution when the taxes were abolished and he started making money selling supplies to the Patriot army and his fortune started climbing steadily again. With his brother's eventual appointment to a General's chair Robert chose congress and was elected as a representative of Massachusetts.

    During the Revolution he maintained his seat in the Congress although he retired for a time afterwards, tending to his business and family in Boston. Eventually with the Constitution ratified he won a position in the Senate for himself and returned to serve his country, the part where it said he could still own business and participate helped too.

    Issues:
    Sweeping Federal Powers
    Moderate Taxes

    "We all know whatmy brother would do. Robert would gallop up to the gates of Winterfell alone, break them with his warhammer, and ride through the rubble to slay Roose Bolton with his left hand and the Bastard with his right. I am not Robert. But we will march, and we will free Winterfell … or die in the attempt."

    Henry F. Wallace
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 

    Name:
    Henry F. Wallace
    Date of Birth:
    Spring of 1743
    Ethnicity: Southern-Anglican
    Religion:
    Episcopalian
    Occupation: P
    lanter
    Position: Representative
    Home State:
    The Noble State of Georgia
    Allegiance:
    USA
    Faction: Anti-Federalists - Unofficial Leader of the Arch-Democrats
    Spouse: None (though he houses, feeds, and generally cares for his brother's widow)
    Children:
    None. Though he has adoptive children in the form of his brother's orphans, William S. Wallace (Male, Born in 1771), Lorisa Wallace (Female, Born in 1774), Henry W. Wallace (Male , Born in 1774)
    Money:
    17,000
    Personality: Henry is a classic southern cavalier, a gentlemen in appearance and behavior when outside the political arena. He is a deeply religious man, as any good God fearing man should be. The name Wallace is deeply associated with the former patriot cause and the founding of this new nation, William Wallace fought and died for the patriot cause and Henry himself was a leading member of the Constitutional Congress and one of the men who actually signed the Declaration of Independence. He is an admitted firebrand with a classic southern hotheadedness about him. Unlike some of his fellows Wallace truly wishes to support the common man in their day to day struggle, showing favor and support to the masses whenever he can. Despite his belief that slaves need to be "civilized" by their owners, he does treat the ones "willing" to "learn" surprisingly well.
    Biography: Mr. Wallace was born in 1743 into the prestigious plantation running Wallace family of the most noble state of Georgia. His father, Fredrick Henry Wallace, was a renowned general both on the islands and in the colonies; personally responsible for many of the British victories in the American theater, during both the Seven Years War and the French and Indian war, and had direct command over the British forces that wrestled control of Florida from the Catholic Spanish.

    He was raised in the lap of luxury and never wanted for a single thing during his youth. At that time his family owned the bar none largest plantation in Georgia, along with all the wealth and power such a position affords. His house was large enough to keep ten score within its walls comfortably for a life time, but instead it housed just him, his two distant parents, his three brothers, and his two beautiful younger sisters. And of course his family was a slave-holding one, being the wealthiest of the wealthy his family owned nearly half a thousand of which two score worked within the house the rest worked the fields day in and day out. His youngest brother died of a harsh case of the sniffles in the winter of ’55 and another died of the summer flu in the late summer of ’59. The deaths of his siblings left a dark cloud over his family, one that would never truly pass.

    In his youth his father sent him to study military academia but when he came of age to enlist he refused to join the military as his father insisted instead taking a role in the political theater. He put forth a number of complaints against the British authority as they grew out of control, though he failed to gain much lasting traction within his home state of Georgia. Henry became perhaps most famous for his “Give me liberty, or give me death!” speech, delivered before the association in Georgia. He would become a Georgian representative to the Second Continental Congress for the duration of the war, and was one of those brave men who signed the Declaration of Independence stating of the document "If this be treason, then make the most of it." Over the course of the war he would lose his beloved older brother to “Wily Willie” and fight a series of uphill battles in congress that would eventually prove futile (including his fight against the “Maroon Landing”, his attempt to protect Tory prisoners, and his controversial proposal for Indian removal). Wallace took responsibility for his brother’s children and his brother’s wife, having no family of his own the transition was difficult but he managed.

    After peace was signed Wallace returned to his home state and served out four total non-consecutive terms as state governor, under the Articles of Confederation. He refused to take part in the Continental Convention saying he “smelt a rat in Philadelphia, tending toward the monarchy”. When the new Constitution reached Georgia, he fought its ratification tooth and nail saying “I’m surprised to be making the acquaintance of a National Government instead of a Union of United States” but sadly was not Governor at the time and could do nothing tangible to stops its indoctrination that year. Since those days he has spent his time heading up the radical segments of the Anti-Federalists know as the Arch-Democrats, pushing for the freedom's of the "Average Man" to little avail.

    Issues:
    Central Government: The people should rule not their government, and the state level speaks far better to the people's will. - Nominal Federal Government
    Bank of the United States: The national bank is a boon to the wealthy elitists and a heavy burden upon the average man, its a cancer in the heart of this young nation. - Destroy it
    Tariffs: If they can't compete they will fail, it isn't the governments job to help them. Further the northern "merchants" have no intention of buying up the excess cotton crop we Southerners wont be able to sell, so they can zip it. - Free Trade
    Slavery: Keep it on the down low, but the economic and spiritual glory of slavery must be spread from sea to shining sea. People will see the knowledge of that statement in due time. - Expansion of Slavery into the Frontier
    Military: The states should protect themselves, lest we gain another king to lord over us, only this time one seated in Concordia. - Exceptionally Small (or no) Standing Army, Near Exclusive Reliance on State Militias
    Foreign Relations: France aided us, now is the time to return the favor in full. - Pro-French



    Shawn Bohannon
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 



    Name:
    Shawn Bohannon
    Date of Birth:
    Summer of 1745
    Ethnicity:
    Scots-Irish
    Religion:
    Reformed
    Occupation:
    Soldier
    Position:
    General
    Home State:
    Born in Georgia, currently resides in Kentucky
    Allegiance:
    Whiskey Rebellion
    Faction:
    No Political Affiliation
    Spouse
    : Tillie Helton
    Children: Andrew Bohannon (Male, Born in 1770), Tillie Bohannon (Female, Born in 1774), Willy Bohannon (Male, Born in 1776), Jacky Bohannon (Female, Born in 1779)Money: 5,500
    Personality:
    Shawn feels at home fighting in the forest and backwoods of the country. Simply he's a stiff man of few words. He drinks heavily at times and as a former foremen and slave catcher he is a stubborn racist. He speaks with a thick Georgian accent,certainly the accent of a poverty stricken Georgian though curiously he never tried to augment it. Shawn is rough in both demeanor and appearance, even as a Major General (and now defacto leader of the Whisky Rebellion) he never attempted to change himself.
    Biography:
    Born into a family of foremen in service to the Wallace family Shawn learned the skills of such a position over the course of his childhood, first came how to hunt and trap and fish and the like, though later in his life he would learn how to drive slaves and use the same tracking techniques he used on animals to catch escaping Negros.

    Though the two were nearly the same age the young Wallace and young Bohannon never met one another, well not more than you would simply seeing one in passing around the plantation. This was in part due to the late Fredrick Wallace not wanting his eldest son gallivanting in the mud with the common folk. Upon his father's death William began to take a more active role in managing the plantation, it was at this time the two met and became friends of a sort.

    With the outbreak of war Bohannon followed Wallace into the fray, though he had little actual military experience he did have experience in the back-country and leading the common men that make up the militia units of the army. He fought through the war, most of his success being in a guerrilla war of containment against Howe’s forces, becoming the Major General of the Southern Department and earning the nickname “the Butcher”.

    Not more than a couple years after the war had ended Shawn became sick of the planter aristocracy he once stomached, they had no love for him and if it were possible held less for them. So the Bohannons packed up and moved west for eastern Kentucky, plenty of Scots-Irish there and the promise of an honestly fresh start awaited them. He founded a settlement by the name of Liberty, the town provided refugee to veterans of the war - mostly those who served in the Southern Campaign - who needed a fresh start after the rather harsh home-coming back east.

    With his poverty stricken kin rising up across the frontier Shawn felt himself obligated to give some order to the "rebellion", "the Butcher" wouldn't let his men fight this last battle alone. Shawn knows the enemy has more men, more ammunition, and better training but they have the home field and the will of heavenly justice, well hopefully. And in truth he thought this Poole was a bit of a prick with a kingly complex, maybe he could do with being knocked down a peg.

    Issues:
    Central Government:
    Confederation of Independent States
    Bank of the United States:
    Destroy it
    Tariffs:
    Free trade
    Slavery:
    No Abolition
    Military:
    No standing military at all, exclusive reliance on state militias
    Foreign Relations:
    Isolationism & Inward Perfection

    Name: Edward Charles Lamberth
    Date of Birth: June 12th, 1742 (50)
    Ethnicity: Southern Anglo-American
    Religion: Deist (publicly Episcopalian)
    Occupation: Planter
    Home State: Virginia
    Allegiance: United States of America
    Position: Vice-President
    Faction: Pro-Administration (Low Federalist)
    Commands: None
    Money: 18,500

    Personality: Eloquent, well-spoken and fastidiously intellectual, Lamberth stands as the epitome of aristocratic chivalry, moreso in the English tradition than any Southern example. His American affability, tolerance, and open-mindness is mixed with an English aloofness and elitism, and altogether altered by his determined commitment to Enlightenment ideals and refusal to be bound by provincialist perspectives. His youthful zealotry towards Jacobin ideology has now since moderated, although he continues to stand as an ardent Patriot, his commitment to the Revolution held by his ardent belief in its principles, rather than any petty prejudice against taxation or the Home Country. His dedication to rationality and reason oft leads him to hostility with the superstitious or bigoted, but in his aristocratic manner he rarely takes notice or attention of the slaves and lower classes of American society. His ambition and conviction was likely to lead to clashes and conflicts with men of similar gravitas, although he holds the highest and fullest respect for such characters, moreso than those who would follow or serve him. His growing age has further moderated the venerable statesman, however, and he has earned greater compassion, sympathy, and patience, over the course of his long years in Congress.

    Biography: Born the only surviving son of Henry Edward Lamberth and Anne Elizabeth Yeardley, Lamberth was born in a family of prosperous Virginian planters, descended from English gentry who fled their estate during the English Civil War due to their Cavalier convictions. Settling in the 'Old Dominion', America's fortress of Royalism and Jacobitism, the Lamberths bought land in Central Virginia and began to cultivate their property. By the Restoration, most of the Lamberths decided to stay in their new colonial home. Their proto-aristocratic status afforded the Lamberths much privilege and prosperity in colonial Virginia, becoming a central pillar in Virginian high society over the course of the late 17th and early 18th centuries, and active members of the Virginian House of Burgesses. His father was a noted luminary, serving on the King's Bench in London before transferring to the provincial benches in Willamsburg, and retiring to manage and expand the Lamberth's agricultural properties.

    Lamberth's childhood was comfortable and loving, although perhaps lonely with a lack of siblings. Bookish and introspective, Lamberth naturally followed his father's footsteps, travelling to Britain to read jurisprudence at Oxford. He would divert from his father's path briefly when he spend two years after his studies on the Continent, in a proto-Grand Tour of Europe, a journey that would expose him to the growing Enlightenment movement. Taken up with, perhaps ironically, religious fervour in such philosophies, he would return to America, and Virginia, with energy and dynamism. He would spend the next ten years, from 1753 to 1763, in the mist of the French and Indian War, on the bench at Willamsburg, while also cultivating his philosophical and intellectual passions. It was during this period that he would privately renounce his Anglicanism for a more generalistic, deist Christianity, and commit himself to the ideals that would serve as the bedrock for his later participation in the Patriots and the American Revolution. Lamberth was also wedded during this period, the marital union producing a son in 1771. In 1762 his father passed away, leaving Lamberth his estates and wealth, and after a snappy by-election, his seat in the House of Burgesses.

    Lamberth entered Virginian elections in the aftermath of the French and Indian War, a fractious and turbulent period. Like others from Central Virginia, Lamberth opposed the Sugar Act 1764 and the Stamp Act 1765, which so contravened both his democratic idealism and his personal interests. He was one of the key supporters and lieutenants of Patrick Henry's Virginia Resolves, and was supportive, if not a member, of the Sons of Liberty. He participated in the House of Burgesses 1770 session in the Raleigh Tavern , which voted to boycott British goods, and in 1773 he, along with other prominent Virginian patriots, set up Virginia's committee of correspondence. After the House of Burgesses was once again dissolved by Lord Dunmore, Lamberth served in the Virginia Conventions, and was elected as one of Virginia's representatives to the First Continental Congress., and a signatory to the Continental Association. Returning to Virginia as one of her most prominent and esteemed statesman, Lamberth was elected to the Second Continental Congress, following the outbreak of hostilities with the British in 1775, and played a central role in the drafting, along with contributing his own signature to, the Declaration of Independence.

    Lamberth would serve as a prominent member of the Second Continental Congress, gaining repute as a man of compromise and moderatism, with his role in the drafting and passing of the Lamberth Memorandum and the Dyer-Lamberth-Weaver Resolution. He was elected President of Congress in 1778, and was one of the delegation sent to negotiate the Treaty of Paris. He gave his tentative signature to the Articles of Confederation, but his reservations about the document would be confirmed with the Shay and Waxhaw Rebellions, and soon he would firmly back the campaign for a new Constitutional Constitution. His role as a compromiser secured him a prominent place at said Convention, helping distil the final U.S. Constitution from the centralist proposals of Elon Massie and the decentralist proposals of the Democrats. With his signing of the Constitution, he become one of the few men to sign all four of America's founding documents. His high esteem in the eyes of Congress, on both sides on the growing divide, secured his election as Vice-President, and he focused much of his first term in office forging further compromises and attempting to avert the establishment of rival political parties, while assisting the President in determining the protocols and powers of the chief executive.

    Issues:
    Central Government - A progressive, empowered government, restrained by checks and balances - Balance of Powers
    Tariffs - Tariffs if necessary, but not necessarily tariffs - Low Tariffs
    Bank of the United States - A key institution for our economic development - Keep the Bank
    Slavery - Repatriation should be our long-term goal, but the spirit of compromise must prevail - Deport Slaves to Africa/State by State compensated abolition
    Military - A standing army for our defence, state militias for the protection of liberty - Balanced military & state militias
    Foreign Relations - A rapprochement with Britain and a firm policy of neutrality - Pro-British/Isolationism & inward perfection

    James on the hunt with his Fowler just behind his home.
    Name: James Amsel
    Date of Birth: October 28th, 1751 (Age 40)
    Ethnicity: Northern Anglo-American/German
    Religion: Lutheran
    Occupation: Farmer
    Home State: New York
    Allegiance: United States
    Commands:
    Faction: Low Federalist
    Money: 1,000
    Personality: James has always been a hard worker, brought up with the combined Protestant zeal of his Anglo-German heritage. He's always been curious, adventurous, and a little daring - but only to the extent of legal bounds. He has a strong respect for order and authority. He is somewhat clever, but what is most notable about him is how stubborn he is.
    Biography: James Amsel was born to a second-generation German father Johannes Amsel and an English mother Josephine Pearce, who was partially of Dutch descent. Johannes was born in the American Colonies the son of a former indentured servant named Friedrich who came from Hanover. Because James's father was born in the Americas, he always tried to identify himself more with his English neighbors while still maintaining tremendous pride for his heritage. He lived in New York and worked as an apprentice for a printing shop.

    From there Johannes met Josephine, whose father was a wealthy merchant and owned the shop. Their love was secret, and eventually Josephine ran away from her father and married Johannes. They lived for many years in New York working various store jobs and had four children which he all gave English names - James, John, Josephine, and Fredrick. James was the oldest son. The family lived by modest means, making enough money to live comfortably but not grandly. Johannes was growing tired of city life, and his agricultural roots were calling him back to farming. He took his family up the Hudson River where they moved onto a farm.

    James's siblings have since returned to the city, but James remained on his farm happy with his life. He was a man of family and community with an iron-bound work ethic from his family roots. He's always believed in the personal drive towards freedom as well, being the grandson of an immigrant. This new revolution - this American Revolution - he hopes will cement a true American identity for all people.

    --------------------------------------------------------------
    Amsel retired after the war was over. He was exhausted by constant Indian chasing and looked forward to retiring back to his farm on the Hudson River. However, the recent matters going on with the Whiskey Rebellion have drawn Amsel back into politics again. He was initially unsure about taking arms against other Americans, but now Amsel believes it is his duty to keep order in this new nation he worked so hard to build. Amsel left his farm again and spent some time in New York working with his younger brother Fredrick Amsel in New York politics. Amsel hopes to regain his military commission and restore order against the Whiskey Rebels

    Issues: Central Government:[/B]Weak, if not nominal federal gov't

    Tariffs: Moderate tariffs

    Slavery: state-by-state compensated abolition

    Military: balanced military & state militias

    Foreign relations: Realpolitik with the Great Powers, but otherwise remain independent of foreign obligations.[/B]


    Name: Fredrick Amsel
    Date of Birth: 1760 (Age 31)
    Ethnicity: Northern Anglo-American/German
    Religion: Lutheran
    Occupation: Merchant Tycoon
    Home State: New York
    Allegiance: USA
    Commands:
    Money: 1,000
    Faction: Low-Federalist
    Personality: Fredrick Amsel, younger brother to James, was quieter than his brother. Unlike James, he always preferred the urban setting of New York and so lived there while his brother tended his farm up north. He first got involved with urban politics through the print shops like his father, but soon began to involve himself by working for the candidate for city mayor one election season. He gained a great deal of political experience as a campaign manager and gave the mayor a stunning victory. He continued to work under the mayor at his office but the two men began to break away. Fredrick then began running for city council and after a few years unseated his former boss where Fredrick served a term there.

    When New York was occupied by the British, Fredrick went underground and kept the patriot spirit alive. He helped hide patriot identities and held secret meetings to keep these patriots united until they were free again. After New York was freed, Fredrick joined the politics of the new state and eventually was elected to represent New York first int he Continental Congress and then the Confederation and National Congresses. He works now as James's political arm, but has many independent ideas for himself. In any case, he was the one to pursuade James to side with the United States to restore order to the country...or else lose everything they fought so hard for.

    An engraving of Commodore Poole, perhaps as he is best known to the people of the United States


    President Poole's first official portrait upon assuming the office

    Name: President Hammitt Poole
    Date of Birth: 1736 (56)
    Ethnicity: Northern Anglo-American
    Religion: Protestant
    Occupation: Merchant Tycoon
    Home State: Massachusetts
    Allegiance: United States of America
    Position: President
    Faction: Pro-Administration (Low Federalist)
    Commands: None
    Money: 18,500

    Personality: Hammitt Poole was once a highly impetuous man, his ambitions bordering on recklessness; this habitus won him great victories in business, and even greater victories on the sea. However, after assuming the mantle of President, he has tempered his fires. The office requires a much gentler hand, and he does his best to govern righteously by the law and by the words of his advisers. Similarly, he refuses to appear publicly with his military decoration, stating famously at his inauguration that America "had not replaced one militant governor for another". However, neither does he see himself as merely a figurehead atop a government controlled by every whim of the factions in the country; the Constitution is the law of the land, and he intends to hold it true.

    Biography:

    Hammitt Poole became one of the most universally beloved war heroes during the Revolution, his war record boasting numerous victories over the Royal Navy, including a captured admiral and ship-of-the-line. He masterminded the Caribbean Campaign, which resulted in a sequence of embarrassing defeats for the British in the Bahamas, Bermuda, Jamaica, and Antigua. His green-clad Marines were the only US soldiers to successfully occupy British territory, and his concerted efforts with French admirals arguably brought the war to its close. The only tarnish on his otherwise sterling service record was the Maroon Question, an unanticipated consequence of the utter victory in Jamaica; while this event won him the admiration of many in the north, it earned him as many detractors in the south. With the aid of Congressmen Dyer, Lamberth, and Weaver, much of the scandal was alleviated (and those three would become his earliest political allies).

    When the Massachusetts Militia was raised to put down Shays' Rebellion, many in the state clamored to appoint the then Commodore Poole as its leader, since the so-called "Marine Army" had proven to operate free from many of the logistical and meritorious flaws exhibited time after time by the Continental Army in the early stages of the war. The Boston elite was so enamored with Poole, that to this day, many still shake hands with the left instead of the right to emulate the Commodore, who lost his right hand in the war. Ultimately, this was a problem of Massachusetts, to be solved by Massachusetts, and Governor Dyer had no problem choosing his ally Poole to appease the masses and solve the issue once and for all.

    His aptitude as a leader in times of crisis (if not necessarily as a battlefield commander), and his willingness to enforce the Constitution, proved to win Poole many supporters amongst the elites and government figures in both the north and the south. He was able to win the election for the presidency on this platform, defeating another one of his oldest allies, Charles Lamberth, who would serve as his vice president. Poole was an ardent admirer of Lamberth, modeling his own behavior in the government sphere on that of the former President of the Continental Congress. He once said of his friend, "Charles will become President the instant the public forgets of Nantucket".

    In order to best prepare himself to govern a nation that had proven unkind to individual rulers, he devised a "Cabinet" of close advisers with whom he could consult and delegate responsibilities. For his Secretary of State, he chose John Eggers, turning many heads; Poole admired the man's victory over his bottled demons, and respected the man's forthrightness in his opposition. Elon Massie was an easy choice as Secretary of the Treasury; the man nearly single-handedly managed the entire national budget during the war, with Poole famously stating "he is the savior of the fleet; therefore, he is the savior of the nation". In truth, Massie champions many issues and viewpoints shared by the President that he feels compelled to be reserved on, in the interest of avoiding open legitimizing of the factions that are undeniably growing in influence.

    Issues:
    Central Government - Balance of Powers
    Tariffs - Moderate to High Tariffs
    Bank of the United States - Keep the Bank
    Slavery - State by State compensated abolition
    Military - Maintain an Army and a Fleet
    Foreign Relations - Realpolitik with a preference towards Pro-British

    Name: Matthew Thompson
    Party: Pro-Administration/Low Federalist
    Office: Representative
    Age: 30
    Date of Birth: July 10th of 1762
    Marital Status: Single
    Children: None
    Ethnicity: White, Southern background
    Home State: Virginia
    Occupation: Thinker
    Religious Views: Protestant
    Money: 2000 + 200x per year +1000 from office

    Biography & Philosophy: Matthew Thompson was born to Robert Thompson, a soldier of the 7 years’ war. At the end of the war, Robert decided to leave his past and a turmoiled Europe behind him, as such; he sold all his property and fled for hoping for new life in the Americas. In his trip towards the American colonies he would fall for a lovely Virginian woman, a teacher and would be wife, Rebecca Daughtry, with thoughts and dreams that would be influential in Roberts's life. He would serve with honor in the Revolutionary war and earn a battlefield commission. This new position would allow his son to rise to prominence.
    Matthew himself was born in July of 1762; he didn’t take part of the war of independence till late 1778, when he joined as a regular. He was raised under a strict military father and gained most of his political ideas from his mother, thus making him quite conservative, though his military upbringing makes his ideas collide at times. He has climbed his way up the political ladder and is now a young representative, he is extremely organized and quite hard working, though if given the chance can be very lazy. He can be quite emotionally outgoing, and considers himself first and foremost American.

    Taxation: Preferably low, though acknowledges there will be times it must go up.
    Military: There should be a small standing army, however it's numbers should not be so large as to put a hindrance upon the federal budget also a successful nation can’t defend itself without militia, though we must always have reserves. The majority of this nations national Defense should come from the states.
    The Economy & Trade: Anything that gears the US towards the future, free market should be allowed and commit to industrialization.
    Foreign Policy: When it suits us we must act, otherwise our business is our own.
    Immigration: All immigrants should be welcome, why deprive ourselves from workers to possibly the greatest minds of the world? If they want to be American, let them!
    National Bank: necessary at times. but should not be allowed too much power.
    Slavery: I will support whatever I believe can make this country better, a black man can be work as good as a white man in the right situation so i will not limit myself to trivialities such as skin color, so long as we benefit from it. Because of this I do not contest its use, especially in the southern states.

    Ethnicity: Northern Anglo American

    Religion: Protestant

    Occupation: Merchant Tycoon

    Home State: Londonderry, New Hampshire

    Children: 2 sons (10)&(13)

    Party- low Federalist

    Position: Senator of New Hampshire

    Money: 5000 per year +2000 from office

    Personality: John is is disciplined and direct, and prefers to deal with honorable and trustworthy people. He is quick witted and slow to temper.

    Biography: Robertson was born at Londonderry, New Hampshire on August 28, 1740. The second of four sons, Educated locally, Robertson first came to prominence in April 1754 when he embarked on a hunting trip along the Baker River with his brothers. During the course of the trip, the party was attacked by a group of Abenaki warriors. While many men were killed, Robertson fought the Native Americans allowing his younger brothers to escape. When the dust settled, Robertson and his older brother Ned were taken prisoner and forced to return to the Abenaki. While there, Robertson impressed his captors with his spirit and wilderness skills and was adopted into the tribe.
    Remaining with the Abenaki for part of the year, Robertson studied their customs and ways. Ned and Robertson were later rescued by a party sent from a fort in Charlestown, NH. With the beginning of the French & Indian War in 1754, Robertson began to contemplate military service. Two years later he joined Roger's Rangers as a lieutenant. An elite light infantry force, the Rangers performed scouting and special missions in support of British operations on the northern frontier.
    In 1759, Major General Jeffery Amherst ordered the rangers to mount a raid against the Abenaki settlement of St. Francis which had long been a base for raids against the frontier. As Robertson had adopted family from his captivity in the village he excused himself from the attack. Leaving the unit in 1760, he returned to New Hampshire with the rank of captain. Robertson then returned to peacetime pursuits. These were soon hampered by a variety of new taxes, such as the Stamp Act and Townshend Acts, which quickly brought the colonies and London into conflict. With the passage of the Intolerable Acts in 1774 and occupation of Boston, the situation reached a critical level. I was at this time that Robertson decided he would be of more use wielding a pen, than a sword. In The summer of 1774 Robertson was elected as a delegate for the state of New Hampshire. Robertson has served as senator of his state for 14 years now; having taken a reprieve following the revolution to help his state rebuild and restructure their infrastructure.

    Bank of the United States: Keep the Bank but limit regulatory powers

    Slavery:state-by-state compensated abolition

    Military: balanced military & state militias

    Engraving of Massie done c.1790

    Name: Elon Massie
    DoB: 1745 (47)
    Ethnicity: Caribbean born, North Anglo-American
    Religion: Protestant
    Profession: Merchant Tycoon
    Home state: Connecticut
    Allegiance: United States
    Position: Secretary of the Treasury
    Commands: None
    Money: ?

    Personality: Confident and bold, Massie's character represents a Northern affinity for urbanity, commerce, and national loyalty. Massie holds strong opinions on the direction of the nation's economical development through manufacturing and domestic growth, and harbors, though avoids to express, a distrust of local and state authorities whom he sees as "unrestrainedly disposed to self-service."

    Biography: After immigrating to America from the West Indies, Massie rose to political prominence during the War for Independence. Once flourishing in the intellectual environment of New Haven, Connecticut, his own fortunes, and those of the new nation, changed when he was appointed the principal financier for Congress' war effort. Since that time and after the war, he returned to Connecticut before staying a while in Philadelphia, and then in Boston, where he had matured new attitudes and ideas toward developing the nascent nation's economy.

    In the years leading up to his appointment in President Poole's Cabinet, he had published several papers for the university press of Yale College expressing his favor in the establishment of a strong centralized government following the failures of the Articles of Confederation (citing the system's inability to control the circumstances that eventually led to the Shays and Waxhaws Rebellions). While in Massachusetts on a retreat from his obligations to the scientific Society he had founded before the war, he had collaborated with former Congressional colleague and would-be governor Charles Dyer on the future of Boston as a possible commercial (even political) capital of the new nation, sharing his opinions on industry and manufacturing with the largely concurrent statesman. By 1787, Massie and several prominent politicians became advocates for this ideal of America as an industrial nation headed by a strong central government: a political school dubbed Federalism, or "a novel form of tyranny" by those who largely opposed the thought.

    In 1789, Massie was appointed Secretary of the Treasury by the unanimously chosen President Hammitt Poole, whose skillful management of the Continental Navy during the war largely influenced Massie's ideals for a strong American navy to protect her commercial intersts. Though he maintains a certain respect for his colleagues in the Cabinet, such as the rational and well-spoken Lamberth whose dedication to moderation and compromise in the Continental Congress he admired, and even his political rival Eggers of the office of State, who had since the War tempered his passionate opinions (and drunken habits) somewhat.

    Issues:

    Central Government: "All legitimate authority should rest solely within the law of the federal government." -Sweeping federal powers

    Tariffs: "America shall dictate her own finances." -High tariffs

    Bank of the United states: "We cannot erase this war debt without firm, financial footing" -Keep Bank

    Slavery: "I did not oppose the sudden presence of 300,000 free blacks to favor this cause of America. See if I will object to a million" -Total, uncompensated abolition

    Military: "Howe and Poole were the greatest general and admiral to ever command in American theaters of war. I should disdain to admit that, at one point or another in my life, they both had made me flee for another Capital." -Strong standing military

    Foreign relations: "The continuance of American trade rests with the support of the land whose adventurous citizens had spawned our nation" -Pro-British

    Name: John Roberts
    Date of Birth: June 7, 1750
    Ethnicity: NorthernAnglo-American
    Religion: Reformed
    Occupation: Thinker
    Position: Attorney-General

    Home State: New York
    Allegiance:
    USA
    Faction: High Federalist
    Money: 7000
    Personality: Roberts is a man of class and taste. While his braincreates new theories on life, his body is always impeccably dressed. Though hedoes enjoy a good wine or champagne, he drinks in toleration to maintain apositive self-image. His intellect does more than think up theories; it giveshim quite the hatred towards both people intellectual and those not. He hatesthe intellectuals for they are a threat to his God-given smarts, and he hatesothers for not being as smart. Overall, he just hates people. His hatred ofpeople has placed him in the High Federalist camp, as he does not trust hisfellow Americans to live their lives properly and effectively.
    Biography: Born in 1750 to a wealthy merchant tycoon, Roberts was thefourth of nine children. As such, he never received much attention from hisparents. Using his alone time to think, he built inventions with the scrapparts around his mansion. After reaching adulthood, Roberts printed his ideasin the paper and received feedback on his ideas from others in New York. Theuntimely death of his father resulted in him gaining aside able fortune, whichwas spent on education at Harvard and various books in Latin and Greek.Eventually drifting away from material inventions and toward politicaltheories, Roberts found himself becoming a member of the Sons of Liberty, andhas recently become a representative from New York for the second ContinentalCongress. During the war, Roberts initially attempted to block southerninterests in favor of the north, but eventually let southern interests pass, makinghim a forgettable Founding Father. Under the Articles of Confederation, Roberts ran a business for some time to generate income, but became the Senator for the glorious state of New York after he helped ratify the Constitution. During his tenure as Senator, Roberts officially became a hard-core Federalist, studying the Constitution and other laws to find legislative ground for his political opinions.

    Issues
    Tariffs: High tariffs
    Bank of the United States: Keep the Bank
    Slavery: state-by-state compensated abolition
    Military: balanced military & state militias
    Foreign relations: isolationism & inward perfection (actually, thiscould also be supported by members of either camp)

    It seems like I can't resize the picture, so spolers it is!

    Name: Horatio Peterson
    Date of Birth: January 14, 1741 (51 years old)
    Ethnicity: Southern Anglo-American
    Religion: Episcopalian
    Occupation: Soldier
    Position:
    War Secretary (I think that's the term...)
    Home State: North Carolina
    Allegiance: USA
    Faction: Anti-Administration Clique (National Republican)
    Money: Uhh...
    Personality: Peterson is as flamboyant and courageous off the battlefield as he is in a seat of command. Brash and daring, but with the talent to back it up, he is able to rally all but the most broken men with sheer strength of personality. Fearless almost to a fault, "guts and glory" would be Peterson's watchwords. Though at first his actions may seem foolhardy, they mask a keen and tactical mind, and even his most minute and negligible maneuvers are thought out and carefully planned well ahead of time. Beyond the command aspect, Peterson is a hardened realist, thinking little of both optimists and pessimists and choosing to focus instead on what he knows and exactly how and when he comes to know it. He is also kindhearted by nature, but unafraid to discipline troops and subordinates who get out of line.
    Biography: Young and eager, Horatio Peterson was born just a little too early to be involved much in the French and Indian War, being only 21 years old at war's end. He saw some minor service as a mere private serving with the garrison of a certain British fort in the Ohio River valley, but never actually saw combat. But Peterson has always been a warrior at heart, and after the Treaty of Paris he enrolled in a military academy and received formal training as an officer, and saw some action mostly while combating Native tribesmen, once again in the Ohio River valley. This gave him a chance to prove his ability in combat. After two years of service, Horatio was on the point of another relatively meaningless promotion, but had it taken out from under him at the last instant after some venomous and false accusations of misconduct fabricated by an ambitious fellow officer came to light. Peterson was furious, so furious that he promptly beat his enemy to a proverbial pulp before several high-ranking officers. For his valor in the field, Peterson was thankfully spared the gallows, but not spared a dishonorable discharged. He earned a deep-seated hatred of the British military for the injustice he suffered.

    Horatio Peterson undertook to make his own way as a soldier of fortune. Peterson served as a mercenary and adventure all over the world for the next ten years, guarding merchant vessels passing through the pirate-infested Straits of Malacca, fighting briefly in the Russo-Turkish war, and other conflicts throughout the world before coming home in 1775, just as his country was on the brink of revolution. Now, bringing with him all of his commanding and soldiering ability earned over a career in the field, as well as a burning hatred for the British military and almost everything it stands for (his faith being the only real exception), he hopes to offer everything he can in the name of revolution and his new born nation.

    Central Government: Weak, if not nominal federal gov't

    Tariffs: Free trade

    Bank of the United States: Destroy the Bank

    Slavery: No abolition

    Military: Strong standing military

    Foreign relations: Isolationism & inward perfection
