Fort Leavenworth in Southern VictoryEdit
Fort Leavenworth was the home of the United States Army's Barrel Works in the immediate aftermath of the Great War. Irving Morrell oversaw the project until Upton Sinclair was elected president in 1920. The Sinclair administration cut funding for the works. With the onset of the Pacific War over a decade later, coupled with the rise of the Freedom Party and Jake Featherston in the Confederate States, the Barrel Works project was reactivated at Leavenworth.
