The year 2005 marks the 250th anniversary of the start of the French & Indian Wars. Twenty years later, the War of the American Independance began. These two events marked the real start of a new era, the end of an empire, the birth of a nation.
In Birth of America, the player controls one of the major contenders of these 2 conflicts, trying to achieve military and political victory. It is a rather complete and detailed simulation of the two most important wars in Colonial America - from 1755 to 1783 - but with a simple and elegant new simultaneous turn-based engine, like you're used to.
