    How long would the Civil War last if Kentucky joined the Confederacy but New York also seceded under Mayor Fernando Wood?

    The Purple/Blue (Colorblind) is the Union, Red is the Confederacy and the Orange is New York. Apparently New York City or at least the Mayor also thought about leaving the Union to keep economic ties with the Confederacy and this got me thinking. How long would this Civil War last and what be...

    Discussion: Which Southern States could've remained loyal to the Union?

    As we know, when President Lincoln won the election of 1860, seven states seceded from the United States of America before Lincoln's inauguration, forming the Confederate States of America, and then when fighting commenced, four more Southern States seceded and joined the CSA as well.

  5. Stonewall Jackson Dead in August of 1862

    During the Northern Virginia Campaign, Stonewall Jackson came extremely close to death. On August 26, at Manassas Junction, a Union soldier aimed directly at Jackson and fired, but missed his shot. But let's say the bullet finds its mark and Jackson dies nine months early. What would be the...

    DBWI: The US wins the War Between the States and remains united, but Prussia fails to bring the southern German states into the fold?

    How about we reverse the fates of Germany and America: What if the Union had decisively defeated Confederate forces at Antietam in September 1862 (maybe Order 191 gets lost or something), and eventually won the War Between the States, while Prussia failed to bring the South German States into...

    What would the Political Parties of the Confederacy look like? Would they even form?

    The people of the Confederacy saw political parties as an evil Yankee thing, so they never formed in its short existence. The south was pretty politically unified on most issues at the time, so I was wondering what Political Parties formed could be like. I feel like the biggest issue would be...

    Union-Entente Alliance in a CSA Victory Scenario?

    The usual assumption made in a CSA victory scenario is that the Confederates win due to European (i.e. British/French) interference in the Civil War, followed by an Entente-Confederate alliance, parallel to one between the Union and the German Empire. I suppose my question is, then, in two...

  13. Realistic effects of a Confederate victory in late 1862 on the rump USA?

    Let's say that Special Order 191 never falls out of that Confederate scout's pocket, and the Confederates win at Antietam, and occupy Baltimore, threatening D.C. Afterward, Britain and France force the USA on the pain of war to recognize Confederate independence, and the USA concedes. What...
