Aftermath

Legacy

The Battle of Tyler is remembered in New England as a mistake where lessons were learned, and the fallen are remembered as "Those Who Opened Our Eyes," in addition to all Philadelphia-based soldiers who died in the following months before March, when the Second Civil War ended. The New England Republic was declared on 29 March 2007 as the successor to the Philadelphia government. Today, while not perfect, New England and the Southwest Republic have a peaceful relationship and are trade partners. Heads of both governments have stated their intention to strengthen ties with one another.

The Battle of Tyler is remembered in the Southwestern Republic as the battle that ensured its independence, but also the day where hundreds of Americans - referring to the troops of the Southwestern Republic and the New England government - laid down their lives for what they believed in. In honor of the battle, the federal government approved the construction of the Battle of Tyler Memorial in 2010. The memorial was completed in December of 2011 and dedicated to the deceased and living soldiers who had fought on either side on January 12, 2012. The memorial is managed by the National Park Services.
