Exclamation Hear Ye, Hear Ye - There Be Revolution Here!

Hear Ye, Hear Ye!

It is with great pleasure that Armchair General presents these new forums to the community!

It is something that many have thought lacking for several years, but that is now the past...

Due to considerable request & desire expressed by the ACG Community it is now reality!

Here in the main atrium you will find the place for discussion of Americas initial age of discovery leading up to the colonial era, at which point you are welcome & fully encouraged to explore the other forums here, each covering the various aspects of the Colonial, Revolutionary, & early Expansive Era of North America. (Ya might even find some discussion of Pirates - Y'ARR!) Many existing threads are now here... as others that fit the general parameters of these forums are found, they will be delivered here, appropriately. Maybe as the community, itself, finds them, they might make note of it with a link in the general Rotunda. (This Forum)

In that a few people have noticed that we have had a new addition with no apparent duty, let me just say that he has been busy behind the scene for awhile & it can now be revealed that this IS his baby to command... It is with great pleasure that I announce & introduce Lance Williams as the Commanding Officer of these new & long sought forums for discussion of such a significant time & eras!

Many know Lance from a time stretching back to the beginnings of Armchair General & its website/forums...

He is not just well versed with the topicality, herein, his ancestry lends itself to the task & position, as well!

His ascendancy to this position on ACG Staff is long over due & it is well deserved!

So please... Give it up for Lance Williams & make yourselves at comfort & ease within these forums!

Congrats, Lance - you deserve the post!

I am glad that the forum here was opened, I have thought for a long time that this era should be separated from the European wars of this time. Considering the political and national factors that really set this aside from Napoleon and so on. Yes both the American Revolution and the War of 1812 found their ways of being turned into World Wars of the time, but this is not what they started off to be. Events caught up with them and they wound up bringing in many European powers, The Fact is the War of 1812 was deffently not influenced by Napoleon.

I am glad that the thread here was opened, now we can fully address the issues that are really lead to the wars on the North American Continent.

Now if we just had a thread to address the wars of the mid 19th Century.

Those wars being:
The Texas War of Independence (1835-1836)
The Mexican War (1846-1848)
The Crimean War (1853-1856)
The Franco-Prussian War (1870-1871)
The Spanish-American War (1898-1902)
The Boar War (1899-1902)
The American-Indian Wars
The Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905)

I know the above wars are small in comparison to the Nepolianic Wars and the World Wars, but they are important because they are the wars that built the great nations that fout those great wars of the 20th Century.

The reason i say these wars are important and should be given there own furom is simply this Franco-Prussian war gave rise to the Greater German Empire and that set the stage for the hatred of the French and German people that boiled over in World War I. The Mexican War set the stage of tension between the US and Mexico that once again raised its ugly head in 1916. The Spanish-American War opened the US to become a major player in the World stage, by making her a global empire. All these small wars gave rise to the ugliness that would boil over into the two world wars.

ECan we and are we willing to give them a thread that matches there importance to men's history?

Howdy, Cowboy!

The conflicts you mention are already discussed & appropriate to the existing Warfare Through The Ages, as well as the Wild West Era. Though there are no plans at the current time for such additional forums for such conflicts as you mention... as time & need dictates, we are always open to such possibilities. I would point out, also, that what constitutes the current contents of this forum & sub-forums, combined with what is now the Napoleonic Era forum, was once but a sub-forum within WTTA, as well. Please feel free to explore the many conflicts that exist there, mate... I find them still to be among my favs.

Just a suggestion... Seeing as there is no symbol for this Forum yet, may I propose the Gadsden flag as the marker for the Forum?



Or even the Franklin design from 1751:


Just a suggestion.

In that this is an international Website & Forums, no, we will not be having a forum for every conflict on the planet...

The current format allows for such discussions easily without becoming so ridiculously complicated, as would be the case if we did.

Read the individual Forum Scopes & then you will know where what goes, mates!

This one needs its Scope thread yet, but it begins in 1490 to 1660 & is the general atrium of discussion for the entire group.

I would also go so far as to point out that these forums would include, not just the US, but Canada & Mexico for these times, as well.
