The Americans are a major civilization featured in Age of Empires III: Wars of Liberty. As some of the civilizations in the game, Americans were first released in WOTTA and served as base for the rest of Anglo civilizations.

The Americans in-game are based in the XIX century United States, a young nation under a civil war between the Unionist and Confederate, and their leader is Abraham Lincoln, who abolished the slavery with the Thirteenth Amendment.

History Edit

The American Revolution was the first successful colonial war of independence against a European power. In the peace treaty of 1783 Britain recognized American sovereignty over most territory east of the Mississippi River. Starting in the 1780s inherent divisions between the North and the South in American society over slavery ultimately led to the American Civil War. Abraham Lincoln, candidate of the largely antislavery Republican Party, was elected president in 1860. Before he took office, seven slave states declared their secession— which the federal government maintained was illegal — and formed the Confederate States of America. After the Confederate defeat in the American Civil War, in the North, urbanization and an unprecedented influx of immigrants from Southern and Eastern Europe hastened the country's industrialization. The wave of immigration, lasting until 1924, provided labor and transformed American culture.
