So the Spanish were getting all the good political founding fathers and I wanted to take them down a notch. And I figured it was a good way to raid them for expert colonists that I could use and my privateers showed no garrisons. I took 2 ships and landed a big force and captured their capital with out much fuss, but somehow that seemed to have kicked off their WoI. I took 3/4 of their settlements, and sent the people off to my territory and stole supplies. Then I had a problem, I had 3 settlements I didn't want and couldn't abandon. So I stripped them down to the least valuable colonist and pulled my army out and declared war on the nearest tribe. Monty cam in and burned the settlements, and then I advanced on Monty with my army and burned him out, for 3 native converts and treasures for no loss to my own forces. Total losses on my side, 1 privateer that the Spanish Armada caught trying to clear the area with a stolen cargo.
