I'm working on a TL right now with a post ACW setting in which I'd like to add the creation of a new state out of land from Florida and Alabama. I got my inspiration from the state of Muskogee. My problem is that I do not know what logical ways I could go about creating it. Also I plan on having this set in a CSA victory scenario so I do not know how that may complicate things. I do know that Florida had a low population in the 1800s so I am wondering if it is possible to businessmen and senators to purchase land in western Florida and south east Alabama as a means to create a new state. Below is my current concept. I'd like to have the western boarder end at the east side of Mobile bay but I'm not sure how far east I could draw the boarder in Florida yet. Any help?
