 Finally, Hamilton achieved many victories. He supported the First Amendment, and also led to the organization of the government of Texas, which was formerly Tejas, as a Commonwealth. He got Mexico admitted as a commonwealth,​ and pushed the break of Alta California, as a territory expanding from the Rio Grande to the Pacific., with Washington City as it’s capitol. He was pleased with his behind the scenes work, but desperately want a new money system, since the current ‘dollar’ wasn’t really working.

 +===Chapter 5: The Napoleonic War===
 +==Part 1==
 +
 +The world was a powder keg. Nations against nations. A variety of nations hated each other. On of these was the Germans and the Hungarians. Both claimed Hungary. Germany backed Greece, Hungary'​s top enemy, and the Hungarians where the middle block. Eventually, Hungary launched an attack on Vienna, later the Siege of Vienna, in October 1807. This caused Germany to declare war. This caused war to break out in Eastern Europe. Then German, French, American, Dutch, Spanish, Greek, Swedish and Papal leaders met in Paris. Alexander Hamilton and John Quincy Adams both wanted protection for America, but Napoleon Bonaparte, a favored soldier of Lafayette, wanted to unify Europe under him. He would personally attack and take control of the Italian peninsula. However, there was much more to the plan.
 +
 +First, France would conquer the entire Italian peninsula to its own rule. Sweden would attack Norway. Germany would hold the Danish border until it conquered Hungary. Greece would hold its own. The Dutch would defend the European coast. Spain would take over Portugal. All nations give some force to fighting the British. A Irish rebellion in Ireland would help with this. However, the British had their own plans. Denmark and Russia would squish Sweden, then move on Germany. The British would knock out the Dutch, and Portugal would hold their own. In addition, the British would massacre the Americans. Finally, the plan in America was to hold their own.
 +
 +France quickly marched throughout Italy until Milan, where the Italians held them up for a couple of days. The Germans retook Vienna and made it to the Bratislava, where the where held up for two months. Sweden and Denmark fought in the battle of Scandinavian Sea, as it was retroactively called as the area between the North and Baltic Sea. Russia pushed through Northern Sweden, and the rest of the world fell into stalemate. All except America...
 +
 +==Part 2==
 +
 +Britain was boiling about the lost of its precious colonies. They conceived a clever plan. Attack Florida, Cuba, Texas, and Oregon. Then, move into the South, cause slave rebellions, and move up through Philadelphia,​ where they would hopefully surrender. However, the only battle they won was in Florida. In the battle of Arnold'​s Island, the British where cold from Russian Alaska, and where massacred. In Cuba and in Texas, they had under compensated the populations of the regions. Then in Florida, the Americans looked vulnerable in Florida. A popular phrase was "​Remember the Sand Beach!,"​ which later became a major city in Florida. When the rest was fired upon, the British where destroyed. However, the army in American constituted 5% of the entire army. The other 95% was fighting a massive war in Europe.
 +
 +==Part 3==
 +
 +America was only one part of the war. Europe was by far the largest. A couple if battles where fought in the Mediterranean,​ some off the African coast, but that was it. Chair John Quincy Adams attempted to get help from an unsympathetic Europe. However, to understand how things came up to this.
 +
 +After returning to Europe, Lafayette had come to power in Europe. Slowly over 30 years, the powers of the king where reduced and given to the Le Premier président du Royaume républicain de France, a president elected for life. In the will of Louis XVI in 1805, he shocked the world, giving most of his power to Le Premier président du Royaume républicain de France, now commonly called Le Premier-president,​ rather than to his wife Marie, killing to royal line, mostly. Lafayette had planned a trip to the American Federal District to meet with Thomas Jefferson, leaving his Le président secondaire du royaume républicain de France, Napoleon Bonaparte. A election was called for the Second Premier-president,​ in which Napoleon won by a large margin.
 +
 +Napoleon moved once the chance was given. He had taken northern Italy, annexed the Papal States, and where now in the Kingdom of Naples. Germany was holding its own, destroying Hungary and defending herself against Denmark. Spain won the Battle of Gibraltar and the Battle of Porto. Finally, Spain toppled its Iberian neighbor, Portugal. Greece and the Ottoman empire fought against each other to little effect. That Christmas, the Entente looked dull.
 +
 +==Part 4==
 +
 +Italy and Portugal were lost. Britain was embarrassed by being held back by the Dutch. Russia was doing little. Then, the Alliance let there guard down.
 +
 +Britain moved in to the now West coast of Spain, freeing Portugal after the Siege of Lisbon. Porto and A Corona where taken. Then, the Norwegian rebellion collapsed. Russia attacked Stockholm. Denmark attacked Goteborg. Russia and Hungary moved into Poland. Ottomans moved into Cyprus and started launching attacks on Greek islands.
 +
 +Now, the turn of the war only came because of the British breaking through the Dutch blockade. After the American Revolution, the British maintained a massive military, but the Dutch built up a massive navy so they could protect Mediterranean,​ South American, and Asian colonies. However, it only took the British a couple of months to break the Dutch navy, even with German, French, and Spanish help. However, America had a surprise...
 +
 +==Part 5==
 +
 +The only way for the Alliance to win was to subdue Britain. The only way to do that was to attack and/or cause a uprising in Ireland. And that is exactly what America did. John Quincy realized that America was not accepted as a world power. To counter this, winning a world war seemed like a good idea. The entirety of the American Navy, the seventh largest in the world (after Britain, the Netherlands,​ France, Russia, Spain, and Denmark) arrived at Cork on March 4th, 1810. Rebellion against Britain broke out in Dublin and Cork. Britain had to pull out of Portugal, allowing Germany to repel Hungary, Denmark, and Russia. Norway did not end up independent,​ but Italy and Portugal had fallen. Portugal became a state of Spain. Italy became a province of France.
 +
 +Of course, Ireland was not freed... yet. This was the second Irish rebellion. Ireland looked up to America, another daughter of Britain, was freed. (Of course, not including the slaves, but that would be resolved soon) America was capitulated to the top of the international spectrum, of course behind Britain and France, but it was in the likes of the Netherlands,​ Germany, Spain, and Russia.
 +
 +==Part 6==
 +
 +During the war, George Mason and John Paul Jones die of natural causes. A funeral is set for inside the capitol building on April 10th, 1810. Hamilton hosted the funeral.
 +
 +After the proceedings where over, a concerned Thomas Jefferson and John Adams called him over.
 +
 +"What is it?" Hamilton said.
 +"Whose not here?" Jefferson said.
 +"Mason and Jones. I thought that was implied."​
 +A dark stare at Jefferson quickly broke after he saw tears.
 +"Do you see Washington?"​ Adams said, avoiding Hamilton'​s gaze.
 +"​No..."​
 +"On his way here, his horse got spooked. He and Martha drowned in the Potomac."​ Jefferson said through tears.
 +"​What?​! He's what, 78?" Hamilton said.
 +"Alex, he's gone! The father of this nation is dead! America is orphaned!"​ Adams yelled, seeing Hamilton wasn't getting the memo.
 +Hamilton cried. Jefferson and Adams joined him. It seemed it would take a funeral to get the two tycoons of American politics to compromise.
