The U.S. had gained independence from England. Which they gained really easily - the English (For there is no Great Britain because Scotland and Ireland still exist) couldn't be bothered to try to keep their colonies. And so the U.S. kicked the English out of America almost entirely - for the French (And the newly independent Quebecois) rule Canada. Of course, there was one other major power in the area. They didn't have as much as an investment in the area as anyone else, but they did own the Carolinas. Part of the area had been inherited from England after they proved unable to control the area. The rest had been settled by the greeks - from the most powerful nation the world had ever seen - the Byzantine Empire. Despite being on the ropes in the early 15th century, the Byzantines rebounded, conquered the Ottomans, much of Eastern Europe, (Including Hungary) thrashed the Venetians, destroyed the Mameluks and reconquered parts of Northern Africa.

So it was that on July 25, 1786, the Byzantine Empire declared war on the United States. Why they did this, no one can guess, but I'll tell you the real reason - for shits and giggles. The war would last 12 long years and see the deaths of tens of thousands. Finally, the Byzantines stopped caring and just gave away the Carolinas to the U.S.

On December 7, 1794, peace was made between the two countries.

Besides, the Byzantines were having fun colonizing the land that Russia never did and beating up the Chinese and taking their land.
