    The Rockefeller family were the driving force behind Standard Oil of New Jersey and they soon controlled Standard Oil of Ohio. There was oil in Pennsylvania and Ohio but the big discoveries were much to the south. Standard oil began drilling in Oklahoma and soon discovered a field much larger than any that had previously been discovered in the US. In 1917 Texaco was created as a group of Texans banded together to seek oil in Texas and New Mexico.

    By 1918 President Pershing announced to a joint session of Congress that the rail connection had now been restored between Hew Hampshire and Northern Florida and that there were three rail connections linking the East Coast to the West coast. nearly 100 bridges had been built and nearly 6,000 miles of roads had been constructed. The United States once again had ships capable of defending the United States. America and Canada had restored connections between the two nations. Industrial production was once again rising to a point that would allow the nation to make more progress.

    Former Prime Minister William Kamehameha and his wife were traveling though the United States on his way to Teddy Roosevelt's estate in New York. It was the Hawaiian Duke's last trip outside of Hawaii and he had received an invitation from his old friend to visit. The man who had lead Hawaii for 20 plus years had been invited by the current President of the United States to stay at the President's House. William had exchanged letters with President Pershing and had hosted a dinner for him in Hawaii at the Kamehameha Estate.
    The visit was pleasant and the former leader of Hawaii shared his opinion on a variety of international relations. He expressed concern that there could be a major war in Europe. The Russians were becoming stronger and would press their claims to the"lost lands".
    In the Far East Hawaii, Britain had been mediating things between the Republic of China and the Empire of the Rising Sun. War had been avoid due to the success of Diplomacy but there was approaching a Crisis that might see both parties locked into positions that would not allow for compromise.
    Finally the taked about The Fall and how ir had changed the fate of nations. William said that he had seen first hand how the United States was finally moving forward with its recovery.

    Ottawa,Canada The Canadian Capital had seen a lot of reconstruction. The residence of the Governor General had been competed in 1917 and the Governor General had been living there ever since. The Canadian Parliament met and passed a number of bills designed to encourage a return of the overseas Canadians. It also passed the Fort Louisburg lease Bill allowing the Hawaiians to continue to use the facility for the next 25 years.
