    OH yes, I'm sorry for the typos; it's edited now; sorry, the battlefield did prove decisive with handling the king's men. While many backwoods south Carolinas resented the influential aristocratic planters, representation gradually improved amoung the backwoods people of South Carolina...

  6. Can the UK keep some American states?

    edited (I'm sorry for the misunderstanding Grammarly mistake) For sure, southern loyalists' strength has been exaggerated in the South, and I'm not saying this out of any biases. Maryland, Delaware most of all, Georgia had some of the highest numbers of loyalists. The South had one of the...
  7. Jefferson davis Talent as a confederate general or sectary of war

    Howell cobb would be a likely nominee for the CSA presidency as the convention preferred him over Toombs. The problem would be Howell Cobb didn't want to be president.

  9. Confederate Victory’s Effect on European History

    I wonder what spains impact would be? Spain might be made great again if they decided to intervene on behalf of the confederacy. Spain had as late as mid-1863 had been interested in a joint Franco Spanish intervention. If war broke out, Spain probably would be occupied in the European theater...

  11. WI Louisiana as a rich state

    Yellow fever is also another factor that slowed down New Orleans economic growth but the same is true with the rest of the south. so whatever the point of dieversions it should be known that once it is discovered that yellow fever is from mosquitoes life expectancy‘s and economies will improve...
  12. Cuisine of the Confederate States of America

    Fried chicken would proably be put on the nation's national cuisine. If not, CSA would probably place the chicken on the national dish if it chose not to be specific for how it was prepared. The national vegetable, of course, would be macaroni:p; of course, I'm just kidding, but I oddly hear...

  14. WI Louisiana as a rich state

    For New Orleans prosperity to continue, you need 1 of these two options. 1 for the American civil war not to happen, which butterflied away much of the Mississippi River trade and caused a tremendous southern depression Option 2 is to have the south win the American civil war, allowing...

  16. Longest Possible ACW

    typo corrected. Well, 1862 intervention was also a humanitarian question if the south appeared to be on the verge of success then Britain and France would intervene as we all know the emancipation proclamation was issued after Antietam which according to Seward was a tactical stalemate, but...

    It has been academically proven that confederates could have won the civil war if France intervened in 1863 then Spain would follow suit source Spain and the American Civil War Wayne H. Bowen Even if Great Britain had perhaps stayed neutral. Keep in mind that 1862 had these Union victories...
  18. Beauregard in command of Fort Donelson?

    Beaugard is a skilled military engineer and a prideful peacock. He isn't going to want to surrender the fort by any means. Bueardard, I think, he had suggested that they dig in at Columbus, Kentucky and before fort Donelson, here was the General's advice to Johnston was to muster a massive force...
  19. WI: Confederate emigrants in Belgian Cuba

    I really don’t see the possibility of Spain ever agreeing to sell Cuba either . America repeatedly try to buy Cuba and they were turned down by Spain always
  20. Entertainment in a Confederate Victory

    on a personal note I like to watch silent films so I might be biased here however with a stronger confederacy I could imagine the nation inviting all silent film actors who couldn't make the transition to sound to come to the confederate states of America and make a name for yourself.
