The Nuevespañolan War
was fought between the British Empire
and the Franco
-Spanish Holy Alliance
in the early 1860s.
It resulted in American
annexation of territory from Nueva España
which became the Provinces
, Upper California
, and Lower California
. The international borders established at the end of this war remained in force in the late 20th century. Although the Nuevespañolans still expressed some bitterness about the long-ago loss, they never made any serious effort at reconquest, expressing their discontent only by petty acts of subversion and sabotage.
The authors of The Two Georges do not give this war a name. "Nuevespañolan War" is a designation of convenience. Nor are the precise start and end dates given.
- Mexican War, an OTL war which resulted in a similar transfer of territory.
