Alberta is one of the prairie provinces of western Canada, bounded by the provinces of British Columbia to the west, Saskatchewan to the east, Northwest Territories to the north, and by the U.S. state of Montana to the south. Its capital is Edmonton. It is named for Princess Louise Caroline Alberta (1848–1939), the fourth daughter of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert.

Alberta in Southern Victory[]

Alberta was a province of Canada. In 1881, during the Second Mexican War, the Canadian Army in the west was concentrated in Alberta and placed under the leadership of Major General Charles Gordon. When the British finally increased their involvement in the war, the army crossed the border into Montana with the intention of raiding the gold mines there, but were routed and retreated back into Alberta.

In 1914, during the Great War, the province was invaded by the US Army, and in 1917, when Canada surrendered, the entire province was occupied by the United States.
