When Avram (a parody of Abraham Lincoln) became King of Detina following the death of his father King Buchan (a parody of James Buchanan), he declared he intended to liberate the blond serfs from their ties to the land. The northern provinces (a parody of the Southern United States), where most of the serfs lived, do not accept his lordship. The hot north was a land of broad estates, whose noble overlords took the serfs' labor and gave back next to nothing. Those provinces succeed from Detina, choosing Avram's cousin, Grand Duke Geoffrey (a parody of Jefferson Davis), as their king in his place.
Avram refuses to let Geoffrey rule the north without a challenge. The southron provinces (a parody of the Union, full of merchants and smallholders stood solidly behind him. So he sent armies clad in gray against the north. Geoffrey raised his own army, and arrayed his men in blue made from the indigo much raised on northern estates to distinguish them from the southrons. This begins the Detian Civil War.
