At Kwinwald there was a confrontation. 2000 of Wilfred's troops died, but the army of King Alfred was defeated and routing.

In 1932 on this day we made the Island of Gotomora a semi-autonomous territory.
Kentucky and Northern Virginia is a presidential republic, with conservatism (American Conservatism) being popular but liberalism (American Liberalism) being on the rise. This has created a mix of conservative and liberal ideas.

I am a strong supporter of a mixed-market economy, and the United States. I believe LGBT citizens are equal. When it comes to abortion I have rather mixed feelings, however in cases such as rape it should always be allowed.

On the 20th of July 1919, the Afalian poet Lionel Quents' collection of First World War poetry was posthumously published. Quents survived the war but died in Afalia in 1919 from a heart attack, presumably brought on by stress from the war.
