The Kalamazoo-Separatist War was a civil war in the southern United Provinces, fought between the Kalamazoo Army, with its ally the Kleinstuck Volunteer force against Rosnia Separatists. It began shortly after a disagreement between the Government and those who wished to create a separate state, Rosnia. Efforts to avoid conflict had been taken, war broke out on the 14th of May, 2014, when General Scott led a small force from the southern provinces into the north.

Causes

After a small party known as the Liberation Front of Rosnia staged a small protest outside the Royal Palace, demanding a separate state in the Southern Provinces. The government responded with an official statement saying; "Though the government recognizes the belief a referendum should be held, the actions of the Liberation Front have made the possibility hard do to repeated attacks against the government." The self-described leader of the party, calling himself "General Scott" then made a speech claiming that only war would now solve the Rosnia Question. Before the government could officially respond, he lead an army into the nearby province of Hillcrest towards the capital.

Timeline

2014

May

The Kalamazoo Army deployed in the small town of Fredricksburg, where General Scott's army was going to take the town. The armies met at a hilly area called Bellheim Heights. The Kalamazoo army, lead by King Luis I, lead his forces to the top of the Heights. General Scott tried to outflank the Army by moving his Army in small duos. He managed to get little over two-thirds of his force to an area known by the locals as Smith hill. Then the Battle of Bellheim Heights began when King Luis I noticed the separatist army was moving to his flank. He ordered an attack against the army. The Separatist Army was caught off guard but managed to hold the line. After ten minutes the Government forces were forced to pull back, and the rebels retreated south into friendly territory.

June

King asked the Congress to pass a conscription act. It was the first draft in Kalamazoo history, the army swelled to about fifteen soldiers. General Scott requested recruits within his area of control but only received an additional two soldiersat for his command. The vast difference between these two armies would play a major role in the war. The Kalamazoo Army had to take separatist territory, while Rosnia had to merely defend against the Kalamazoo Army until the morale of the army and people was drained.
