1. Under the Stainless Banner - a Southern Victory TL
    Threadmarks: Chapter I: The War of Southern Secession, 1861-1862.

    With other projects on hiatus, I was inspired to write my own Southern victory TL detailing a Confederate victory in the American Civil War. I chose the same PoD as Turtledove, the infamous Order 191, but things diverge from there. To make certain I wouldn't inadvertently rip off Turtledove's...
  2. WI: POTCS George Bolling Lee

    Assuming the CSA wins it's independence and survives for at least a century, what would it look like if George Bolling Lee, grandson of general Robert E Lee, was potcs during the 1920's?

  6. DBWI AHC: Lee seen as a good general

    Is there a way to salvage Lee's reputation. I know this is tough, he got whipped in West Virginia, failed in the Carolinas and failed in the Peninsula Campaign. He had a good reputation before the war. Is there a way he can look like less of a colossal screw up?
  7. Lee attacks at Pipe Creek
