The United States of America, simply known as the U.S. is an American civilization that makes its first appearance during the American Revolution campaign. This civilization controlled primarily the eastern section of North America but later other countries in the world as it became more developed. In the original Age of Empires III, the U.S.A only appeared in the campaign and resembled the British civilization. In the New World the U.S. revolted from the British and expanded their country eventually becoming a world superpower by the late 1800s.

Age of Empires IIIEdit

Civilization Bonus: Extra Manor Houses that spawns one Settler.

Unique Units: Rocket

Royal Guard Units: Musketeer, Hussar

Revolution Politician: George Washington

The United States can have a powerful economy because they can create Settlers faster than other civilizations since like the British they spawn settlers whenever a Manor is built.

The United States military is very powerful especially later on in the game because their Musketeers and Hussars, two mainline units, can be upgraded to Royal Guard level.  However unlike the British they train Skirmishers instead of Longbowmen and can also train rockets from their Artillery Foundry and Heavy Cannon from their Factory.

The United States are also a Revolution civilization in the The WarChiefs that are an option to the British and the Dutch and the civilization's special ability is to give Gatling Guns more hitpoints. The United States' politician is George Washington who is also a playable character in Act I: Fire.

Mod AppearancesEdit

The United States also appear as an fully playable civilization on severall mods. The most recognizable are in The Napoleonic Era mod and The War of the Triple Alliance mod, they are very different from each other.
