Similarly, you may ask, in what part of the country did the chestnuts live in the beginning of the book?
Set in the American South beginning in the year 2074, American War tells the life story of Sarat Chestnut, a girl growing up in the context of a Civil War triggered by climate change. The story begins at Sarat's childhood home near an encroaching Gulf of Mexico.
Additionally, when was the last time America was not at war? The U.S. Has Been At War 222 Out of 239 Years. This morning, I discovered an interesting statistic, “America Has Been At War 93% of the Time – 222 Out of 239 Years – Since 1776“, i.e. the U.S. has only been at peace for less than 20 years total since its birth.
Accordingly, what was the first war in American history?

How many wars has America had?
The United States has fought five major wars — Korea, Vietnam, the Gulf War, Iraq, Afghanistan — and only the Gulf War in 1991 can really be classified as a clear success. There are reasons for that, primarily the shift in the nature of war to civil conflicts, where the United States has struggled.
