U.S. and Britain Allies of Mars!
March 4, 1899
United States President William McKinley met with British Prime Minister Herbert Asquith to pave the way to an alliance on Mars. The relationship between the two countries have been strained as of late, due to the U.S. support of the Fenian Revolution of 1870. Talks were very successful, and both countries have vowed to become allies in the Martian venture to achieve dominance of the planet.
Later this week both leaders plan on meeting with French Prime Minister Charles Dupuy in creating a triumvirate of nations. French forces of the Legion Extraterrestriale have been commencing guerrilla raids on German and Italian supply routes.
Queen Victoria made a rare appearance after the talks and gave her royal blessing on the new pact.
