Britain makes sense, they gave aid to the confederates. Maybe legions of foreign troops, but not an entire faction.

You dream that Mexico is not North American?

in my point of view,it's kinda stupid to even think about these countries's existance in the game...since they did not participate in Civil War AT ALL(...exept from England,dunno)
but, the game is about Union and Confederacy and that's the way it should stay..

These posts as of late
Of course, I also think lines should be able to move in double rank without having emotional breakdowns.

France, certainly France. The French attempted to pester the British into recognizing the Confederacy with them, but failed to do so. (The French did not want to upset their ally (Britain), and decided against doing it alone). The French intervention in Mexico is going on during this time period, and actually affects American foreign policy (ex. Seward expresses disapproval with the action, but does not escalate it, due to the American Civil War). So seeing as the French intervention in Mexico was 1862-1867, one could argue that they should be added.

Mexico is in North America. ._.

The Austrians could be argued, but not very well. A Hapsburg reigned as Emperor of Mexico (Maximilian I (1864-1867)) because he was placed on that throne by the forces of Napoleon III (1853-1871) of France. Better to add France than Austria.

I voted Ottomans to get on the Turks good side when they come in the forum requesting an Ottoman faction again.
