    Rafeal Trujillo, President of the Dominican Republic from 1930 until his US-backed deposition in 1946. During his rule, the ruling party known as the Dominican Party, which had been described by many historians as Actionist, was the sole legal party in the nation, and Haitians and Afro-Dominicans in the Dominican Republic suffered persecution and even ethnic cleansing, despite Trujillo himself being part Black Haitian himself. During the Second Great War, Trujillo, while keeping the Dominican Republic officially neutral during the war, maintained friendly relations with Featherston's Confederate States, and wanting to have a place for his nation in the Confederate "New Order", actively surrendered about 100 to 250,000 Haitians and Afro-Dominicans to the Confederates and their death-camps in Confederate-occupied Haiti. In May, 1946, almost two years after the end of the war, an American joint operations between the USMC and Navy invaded the Dominican Republic and overthrow Trujillo, who was then placed in US Military Custody. After a brief trail, on June 24, 1947, Trujillo was executed by hanging in Santo Domingo, the capital city he once named after himself as Ciudad Trujillo, for crimes against humanity. The US then installed a provisional occupation and provisional government before recreating the Dominican Republic as the third Dominican Republic on July 1, 1954.

    OCC: Much of this comes from this post.

    Photograph of the American superbombing of Newport News, Virginia. Casualties were relatively low when compared to the superbombing of Philadelphia as roughly 30,000 of the city's 50,000* inhabitants were killed by the blast.

    *figured Newport News would be larger if the CSA receives immigrants from Europe during the 19th and early 20th century.

    Random random stuff about my homestate of Mississippi.

    Mississippi before War of Secession. (1848-1862.)

    1: Both Democratic and Whig Party was against California Statehood.

    2: 1850 Compromise reaction is dramatic, prompting political realignment and an rush towards secession. Senator Foote lead many Mississippians with most Whigs and some Democrats into the Union Party, who was willing to give the compromise an chance and seek to perverse the union by by compromise. Foote himself was actively involved in formulating the legislation that admitted California as an free state also pushed for 'popular sovereignty' provision to vote on slavery.

    2: Against them was the State Rights Party of Democrats who favor secession who had the support of Senator Davis, Governor Quitman, and most of the Legislature.

    3: Foote wins the Governorship by only 999 votes in 1851 and the Union Party gain controlled of the State House of Representatives. His term was largely an lull in sectional tension till 1854.

    4: Democrat John J. McRae (1854-1857.) promoted state improvements, such as the construction of railroads. Before leaving office, trains where running through Jackson to New Orleans on the Great Northen Railroad and through Meridian to Mobile and Ohio. Appropriate more money for state schools and adoption an new state code.

    5: The Ostend Manifesto.

    6: 1855, Governor McRae defeats Know-Nothing candidate Charles D. Fontaine, an former Democrat. National Democratic Party start to divide along sectional lines.

    7: Mississippi Representative William Barksdale assists Preston Brooks beating Charles Summer by holding Summer by the coat.

    8: Mississippians have hope for an resolution with the election of James Buchanan. Jacob Thompson of Mississippi becomes Sectary of the Interior. Robert J. Walker of Mississippi is appointed Governor of the Kansas Territory, but soon resigns over the validity of of the Lecompton Constitution

    9: William McWillie first year as Governor seem to be an lull as he urgent the need to protect the fertile bottomland from flooding with levees and building additional railroads. This ends with Harper's Ferry. Democrat John Jones Pettus and disunionist disciple of Quitman overpowers Harvey W. Walter.

    10: Pettus recommends $ 150, 000 for weapons and ammunition. Mississippi State Convention on Secession meet in Jackson, January 7, 1861 with William Barry as President and Lucius Q.C Lamar as Chairman to draft an ordinance of secession. Approved, 84, to 15.

    11: Battle of Ship Island.

    12: Shiloh and Corinth.

    13: Admiral David Farragut bombs Vicksburg throughout July.

    Antebellum Mississippi/Pre-Civil War/War off Secession.

    1: Start of the Civil War, there was an total of 437, 404 slaves, and less then 800 free blacks.

    2: Panic of 1837. Except for one in Yazoo City and one in Holly Springs, every private bank became insolvent, forfeited its charter and shuttered its doors.

    3: Elite planters were concentrated in the most desirable agricultural regions along the Mississippi River. (The Natchez district.) Smaller planters cleared lands in the interior. The planter class was less then 20% of all slaveholders, and 1% of white families. Tons of famous duels.

    By 1860, less then half of all white families could own even one slave. Yeoman farmers compose the majority of white families with varying social and political interests.

    4: Mississippi Married Women's Property Act of 1839 which protected an married woman ownership of property.

    5: Jefferson College, the Whitworth Female College, the Mississippi College, Oakland College. (We was underschooled.)

    6: The Methodist Church was by large the largest denomination. By 1860, it was reported 60,000 members including 11,000 African Americans in 606 Churches.

    7: Baptist churches was found in primarily in small rural communities. By 1860, 41,000 members in 529 churches. Slaves may have composed as much as one-third of Baptists members.

    Presbyterians developed churches thanks to Scot-Irish immigration in the territory. Mississippi Presbytery founded in 1816. By 1835, the Synod of Mississippi was establish with 24 Presbyterians churches. Reached only 148 by 1860. The Cumberland Presbyterian Church came in the 1830s and had 60 churches in the Northen half of Mississippi by 1860 appealing to different sets of people.

    Oldest was the Roman Catholic and Episcopalians. The Roman Catholic disappear when Spain left in 1798, until the 1840s when the Diocse of Natchez got it first bishop, and by 1860, there was only 17 churches. The Episcopalians got kicked out by the Spanish and didn't reocver till the 1820s to organize its first Diocese. Attracted wealthy planters, merchants and professionals, there was 25 Episcopal churches, mostly in the Natchez and the Gulf.

    Jews mostly in Vicksburg, Natchez, Jackson and so on. (See here, here. And Beth Israel Congregation.)

    8: Treaty of Dancing Rabbit Creek and the Treaty of Pontotoc Creek.

    9: The Nullifier Faction jointed with the Whigs to form an unusual politician alliance. (Expect they the share dislike of President I AM THE LAW Jackson, they shared very little.) During the 1830s, the Whig-Nullifier group was often able to successfully the Jacksonian Democrats in statewide political contests.

    The Wings in Mississippi would be the OTL 'Bourbons'. Democrats/aristocratic conservatives who ran the State after Reconstruction and an lot of the time acted like it was still 1860 and not 1877, or water it down. For what it was worth, they did support diversify the state with outside investment to fuel railroads, industrial manufacturing, and was willing to work with Northen businessmen, fiends in big business as it were. (Among them was Lucius Q.C Lamar, Longstreet's VP, John Marshall Stone, Robert Lowry, James Z. George, and Edward C. Walthall. )

    Then the OTL Populists of the State, the Radical Liberals. The small farmers and progressive third-party. (Financial reform, sliver coins, and paper notes. And to protect farmers from falling commodity prices and big on regulations to stop railroads from engaging in price-fixing schemes.) Among them Oliver Hudson Kelley, Thomas Gore, Absolom M. West, Rufus K. Prewitt, Clark Lewis, Joseph H. Beeman, and Frank Burkitt.

    The Liberals (before the merger with the Radicals) would be competing with the Radicals (populists, financial reformers, industrialists) and a Farmers party. The Mississippi merger of Radicals, Liberals, and Farmers would be enough to really challenge the Whigs for the Governorship. (Thanks to @Joshua Ben Ari.)

    Alexander Kolchak, Prime Minister of the Russian Empire under the far-right and Actionist Union of the Russian People from 1932, soon after the ascension of Tsar Mikhail II to the Russian throne, until his resignation in July, 1944 after Russia's humiliating loss in the Second Great War. After his resignation he was replaced by an interim military-government under General Pytor Wrangel, one of his former allies in the government. On March 7, 1945, after months of suffering from depression after Russia's loss in the Great War, he committed suicide by a gunshot from a pistol to his head.

    General Pytor Wrangel, a politically independent member of the Russian government during the Second Great War and the interim Prime Minister of Russia from 1944 to 1946. After his time as Prime Minister, the Russian Empire would be under the rule of numerous semi-democratic governments until the rise of the Russian Republic and the beginning of the Second Russian Civil War in 1964.

    The funeral procession of Tsar Mikhail II in St. Petersburg, October 1, 1950. During the funeral, in scenes reminiscent of the funeral of King Leopold II of Belgium in 1909, many of the residents of St. Petersburg booed and hissed as the funeral procession went by, as Tsar Mikhail II had become a largely hated figure amongst a lot of the Russian people for his role in the persecution of the Russian Jews, his authoritarianism and his failure to gain victory for Russia during the Second Great War.

    Basil Brooke (June 9, 1888-June 26, 1947), known as Basil Brooke, 5th Baronet from 1907 until 1922, when Ulster was officially annexed by Ireland and all noble titles were abolished, a prominent Northern Irish politician of the Ulster Unionist Party (UUP) during the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s. During the Irish War of Independence and the Ulster Rebellion of 1924, Brooke led his own paramilitary group known as Brooke's Fermanagh Vigilance, a smaller part of the Ulster Volunteers, which was made up of Northern Irish Great War veterans. After Ulster was annexed into Ireland, Brooke led the UUP, although the party was on the fringes of Irish politics and was heavily suppressed by the Irish government in Dublin. During the 1920s and 1930s, Brooke moderated in message in an attempt to gain more votes and began to support Ulster becoming an autonomous part of the Republic of Ireland. During the Second Great War and the British invasion of Ireland, Brooke and the UUP actively collaborated with the invading British Army and Churchill/Moseley government of the United Kingdom. From 1942 to 1944, Brooke was declared the provisional Prime Minister of Northern Ireland by Winston Churchill, a mostly symbolic title as Ulster was still run by the military. After the war, the UUP was banned by the Irish government for its collaboration with the British invaders, and all its members were tired for treason against the Republic of Ireland, with said members either being executed or imprisoned. Brooke himself was sentenced to death and was executed by hanging on June 26, 1947 at the age of 59.

    W.T. Cosgrave (June 6, 1880-October 24, 1945), leader of the Fine Gael party and leader of the opposition during the early history of the Republic of Ireland. During the Second Great War, as Fine Gael desired to establish a corporatist United Ireland within the British Commonwealth, Cosgrave actively collaborated with the British invaders and the British government of Churchill and Moseley. As a result, he was tried for treason and was executed by firing squad in Kilmainham Gaol in Dublin on October 24, 1945 at the age of 65. After this, the remaining members of Fine Gael reformed themselves into a new party under the same name after disavowing their collaborationist party members.

    Eoin O'Duffy, a general in the Irish Army who was the leader of the National Corporate Party, a far-right, clerical, corporatist and catholic political party that collaborated with the British during the Second Great War. After the war, O'Duffy was arrested by the Irish Army for treason, but he died of natural causes while in custody in Kilmainham Gaol in Dublin on November 30, 1944.

    [​IMG]
    Gearóid Ó Cuinneagáin (born John Gerald Cunningham), leader of the Ailtirí na hAiséirghe (meaning "Architects of the Resurrection"), an Actionist party active in Ireland during the 1930s and 1940s and 1950s after its foundation in 1938. Unlike O'Duffy's NCP, the ANA was staunchly anti-British and even participated to a minor degree in the guerrilla war against the invading British armies. The party also advocated for an Actionist Irish state similar to those in France and the CSA, and also called for the increased usage of the Gaelic Irish language over English, with English being a secondary language in Ireland and with a possible future abolition of the English language within Ireland. After the war, the party remained on the fringed of Irish politics. Ó Cuinneagáin dissolved the party in 1955 and retired from politics for good.

    Above is a painting by Gilbert Gaul. Gaul, though a Yankee by birth, moved to the Confederate state of Tennessee, living on land he inherited from his uncle. Gaul would paint scenes depicting the War of secession, the second Mexican War, and the Confederacy's Native American population. He painted only a few scenes from the Great War. He died in 1919.

    I find it unlikely that O'Duffy would be a collaborationist. Especially given the fact that O'Duffy was with the IRA during the Irish Civil War.

    At least you manage to salvage some of these. I remember there was once abundant visual references to these things, now they're gone...

    A German NCO with the 7th Jäger-Division instructs Norwegian civilians on the use of a MG-42 prior to the Battle of Dombas in August, 1942. The Battle of Dombas would see both the 7th and Norwegian civilians, outraged by the Entente invasion of Norway, battle against Entente forces to prevent Norway from being cut in half. The battle would devolve into urban fighting and cause severe casualties on both sides. Although Entente forces came close to winning the battle, the intervention of the German XIV Panzer Corps, freed up from victory in the Battle of Hamburg, ensured that Entente efforts came to grief. The battle was the turning point the Norwegian Campaign, as the Entente was forced to withdraw due to increasing pressure on the Western Front.
