Sinaloa is a state of Mexico, located in the Northwestern part of the country. It is bordered by the states of Sonora to the north, Chihuahua and Durango to the east (separated from them by the Sierra Madre Occidental) and Nayarit to the south. To the west, Sinaloa has a significant share of coastline on the Gulf of California across from Baja California. Sinaloa is divided into 18 municipalities and its capital city is Culiacán Rosales.
Sinaloa in Southern VictoryEdit
Sinaloa was a province of the Empire of Mexico. Originally in the middle of the country's west coast, the CSA's purchase of Sonora and Chihuahua in 1881 gave Sinaloa an international border. During the 1930s Depression, many Sinaloans fled to Confederate Sonora in search of work in the CSA, which was marginally better off than its southern neighbor.
