* In the 2008 remake, when you first declare your independence, you will have to write a constitution determining the path that your new country will take. At this point you will be asked to take a stance on a number of key issues, including slavery and the treatment of the Native Americans. You have the opinion to not repeat the terrible mistakes that America made in our version of history, fighting the temptation and forgoing the [[EvilIsCool production and combat benefits that slavery and Manifest Destiny brings]], and [[GoodFeelsGood emancipating the slaves and recognizing the rights of the natives from the very beginning]].
** For extra heartwarming points, if you decide to support native rights, you will get a massive relationship boost with all the Native American nations. Watching the natives send their man to fight along side your solider against the overwhelming might of the REF counts as both a {{Crowning Moment Of Awesome}} and {{Crowning Moment Of Heartwarming}}.
