Southern United Provinces and Brazil Trade Company
A remnant of the once powerfull united province of central america after its partinioning by america,mexico and colombia after the world war 2 (UPCA was an axis member) this resulted in colombia getting most of its land back bar the panama and costa rica (ceded to america) while mexico getting guatamala and large part of el salvador and honduras (which was made into a mexican puppet state of northern united province republic) while the rest are made into the southern united province republic (basically a rump UPCA) now the brazil trading company is officially a company that mostly trade in timber but in reality they are a weapon smuggler who hide their weapon in a hollowed out timber logs the story on how this two met came after the premier of SUPR daniel ortega decided to went to war against the mexican puppet of NUPR but since the SUPR arent allowed to have many arms factory this resulted in premier ortega making a deal with the brazil trading company to smuggle guns un exchabge for docking rights.

The war dubbed the central american war was a disaster for the SUPR as the NUPR with mexican backing invaded the SUPR and overran the country in just about 2 weeks this resulted in premier ortega execution and the dissolving of SUPR (which was replaced by the state of nicaragua).

(CK2 After the end, but also... this is supposed to be for 'events', not Cultural Descriptions so... that offer really doesn't work)
Yep, that's the one!
To be fair, seeing as there's entries such as
General Macarthur’s Wild Ride.

An early 1960s satirical comedy film involving his exploits in WWII and the Korean War in an exaggerated manner, with the finale culminating with him nuking China in order to prevent them from intervening against UN forces, starting WWIII, illustrating the dangers of open hostility against the Soviet Union and China during the Cuban Missile Crisis.

Operation: American Steel.

Name of an attempted follow-on to the popular Hasbro game that also tried to incorporate elements of Monopoly and Life into the fun. Somehow it didn't catch on with the American public, especially as it was released in the same Christmas season as the now famous Nukem board game by Butler Brothers.
Kant's fourth and final major philosophical treatise, the Critique of Pure Emotion, was a work divided into two parts: the first third consists of a sweeping argument against the attacks on his earlier works by the followers of Christian Wolff; the remining two thirds are an attempt to the probe the source and origins of human emotion and conjoin them to his earlier ideas on ethics,

Forge Saint of the Rust Cultists
(sidenote: Does anyone here recognize what particular game mod I reference in this thread?

A murder-mystery novel released in 2016 that depicts Benjamin Franklin as a serial killer, with Alexander Hamilton being forced to stop Franklin before he kills again.

The Siege of Haifa
I didn't think much of using Forge Saint of the Rust Cultists, but I''ll attempt to avoid future entries that aren't really events.
American-Indonesian Defence Agreement
A mutual defense pact signed in 1946 between the United States and the newly independent Republic of Indonesia in attempt to to curb the growing power of the Greater East Asian Co-Prosperity Sphere, over the objections both German-occupied Netherlands and the Dutch government-in-exile.

Borscht, Brews, & Burgers, or the Rise of Fast Food Magnate Leon Trotsky (1879-1971)
After fleeing Stalin and ending up in Mexico, Trotsky started a worker owned restaurant. Saying that the best nursery for communism was in the bosom of capitalism, he expanded it after WW II to the US.

Trotsky’s business survived the McCarthyite Red Scare by being absolutely frank about his commitment to communist ideals. When questioned about his relationship to Stalin, Trotsky answered that there was nothing Stalin would hate more than seeing Trotsky succeed in the US

Rumor is that Stalin wanted to kill Trotsky, until he tried one of the burgers, saying “no, the food is too good”

The Pan Am Affair
In the 1930s Pan Am was the de facto overseas airline for the U.S. Howard Hughes wanted a piece of the post war airline business. in a bid to secure some overseas routes for an airline he was planning, Howard Hughes sent one of his starlets to seduce Juan Trippe, hoping to also procure some industrial espionage. Hughes was hoping the scandal would give him room to start with Hughes Airlines and its H-4 Hercules flying boats. It worked, but Hughes plans came to naught when the flying boats met their inevitable fate at the hands of faster, more modern airliners like the Stratoliner, Connie, and DC-7

The Most Magnificent Retreat
The Most Magnificent Retreat
Is reffered to the removal of 800.000 British troops from New England States, New York, Washington and the North of USA. After the Trent affair escalated Britain declared war on the Union and launched a major offensive against the Union. Within months vast territory had been occupied while the CSA leadership celebrated. The government, Lincoln and parts of the Union Army retreated into the Western Frontier. British politicans got excited and parts of the press demanded the reversal of the United States independence while allowing the CSA a Protectorate status. The other Great powers of Europe became angered about the situation. Russia threatened blockade of British ports and outright war if the British didn't pull back. For once they where backed by France, Prussia and Spain that feared a new presence of British influence in North America. After months of negotiations the Empire pulled back its troops with ment an enormous logistical task. Faced by mass desertions the British Army and Royal Navy reverted to dravonic punishments. On their way they demolished industries, factories and railroads. To save face the British press referred to the maneuver as The Most Magnificent retreat. The United States Government and State governments were reintroduced. The CSA faced a massive economoic baclas with revolts even in front of Jefferon Davis residence. So both goverments had been to weak to fight on and so a decade long Cold War emerged.

A letter from the Teutonic Order's Crimea
 
This is another one that would probably work better as an Cultural Description than an event, but I'm going to try my best.
A letter from the Teutonic Order's Crimea
Refers to the the wide spread prank of the mid 1950's promoted by late night talk show "Late Night with Ronnie Reagan" in which he prompted his viewers to send letters postmarked from the "Teutonic Order's Territory of Crimea" as a satirical dig at the American's government's recognition of Crimea as an independent Soviet State.

I could buy a timeline where Castro becomes the head of a massive adult entertainment industry. OTL he was competing with Kennedy in who was a bigger manwhore. He literally seduced the spy sent to kill him
 
Reformation of Terra Mariana
OR
Torquemada's Doom
After success in the Spanish Inquisition rooting out heretics, Tomas de Torquemada was sent by the Pontifex to the Papal territory of Terra Mariana to flush out suspected JEws and followers of the Greek Rite. After his dictatorial attitude incensed locals (and as modern research shows, the result of an ergot outbreak, the Livonian Order declared him a servant of the devil masquerading as devout man of God, and the Pope that sent him the Antichrist. Torquemada was burned at stake to the cheers of an angry crowd in Riga. Incensed, the Pope declared a Crusade on Terra Mariana and excommunicated the Livonian Order in totality.

The nickname given by the Spanish to the largest and most powerful indigenous states of the bustling and advanced Viceroyalty of California. As part of the Spanish-Mexica alliance of 1532, combined expeditions began to investigate the lucrative northern trade the Mexica had access to.

6 powerful tribal confederations and their additional allies confounded the Spanish and Mexicans, entangled in a web of shifting alliances, intrigue, and rivalries that were all formidable in their own right, fiercely independent and wary of the strangers from the south.

Caesar Gallicus: The Last Roman
Caesar Gallicus: The Last Roman

Ceasar Gallicus aka Apollinaris the Gaul, was a Gallo-Roman Warlord who served as commander under Syagrius in Gaul and was rumored to be his son. When Syagrius was killed in the Battle of Soissons, Ceasar Gallicus reassembled the Romano-Gauls and together with Saxon and Langobard merchenaries he attacked the Franks. By dividing the Frankish factions in a chessplay of power, Ceasar Gallicus weakened King Clovis position. Eventually Clovis was murdered by rivals and Frankish Christian nobles bend the knee to Caesar Gallicus who sought to Romanize them. In his 40 year rule Caesar Gallicus tried to professionalize his half Babaric kingdom and built a small standing army in Roman fashion. In addition to this he had Alan, Saxon, Frankish and Langobard auxiliaris. Gallicus was deeply devoted to Catholicism and was eager to destroy Arianism and Paganism alike. He tried to get the apporoval as Western Roman Emperor by Byzanz but never got an official title. He himself called himself "Caesar Gallicus" of the Province Gallia.

The wrath of Ozymandias
The wrath of Ozymandias was a tongue-in-cheek reference to the extraordinarily long lives of most of the best known English romantic poets, some of whom surpassed a century when that was very rare.

Shelley - 98, Keats - 97, Wordsworth- 101, Coleridge - 102, Lord Byron - 104

The “wrath” part referred to their old age and dotage, as these once great poets faded away into obscurity rather than dying young in a blaze of glory.
