Photos from Featherston's Confederacy/ TL-191

I wonder what Hermann Goering would be doing in the TL-191 universe
He was probably in the Luftwaffe during the second great war, might have even have been in the Luftwaffe in between the wars as well, a career officer.
He probably never got addicted to morphine either.

Well he likely continued serving under the Red Baron until the end of the war, stayed in the Air Force, rose the ranks and possibly eventually commanded a wing or air fleet in SGW
 
In both Great Wars, Russia had plenty of Armenian volunteers to fill out it's ranks, particularly when it came to fighting the Turks whenever the war against the Germans took priority. in both wars, they fought in the Caucasus against the Turks in vain attempts to carve out a nation for themselves in the Caucasus. When Armenian manpower was depleted at the end of the Great War, they were simply recharged by Armenian refugees fleeing from the gneocide the Turks were carrying out.


In the Second Great War, though the Russians strictly prohibited such tactics, some Armenian units turned their troops into people bombs to use against the Ottomans, especially in the latter stages of the war just before the superbombing of Petrograd, with some Armenian troops even continuing to fight the Ottomans even after Russia's surrender to Germany.

Limonka grenades, a favourite weapon of the Armenians, particularly when it came to people bombings. It was surprisingly easy to turn a soldier into a people bomb. Soldiers had limonka grenades tied to a belt which was hidden under their uniform. All a soldier had to do was pull a pin and the grenades, with 60 grams of explosives each, would go off like a domino effect.

Born in 1885 in Fredericksburg Texas, Nimitz served as a naval officer during the First Great War as commanding officer of the destroyer CSS Lucas M. Perry and the armored cruiser CSS Judah P. Benjamin in the Atlantic Fleet.

Nimitz would be commander of the Confederate Navy throughout the 2nd Great War until the very end, when he ordered his navy to stand down and to surrender to the USN. After the war, Nimitz would be president of the Sailors of the Confederacy, a branch of the Sons of the Confederacy movement from his release from prison in 1955 to 1961. He would die from pneumonia in 1966 in his apartment in the city of Houston, Texas. He would be remembered as one of the least worse Confederate Commanders during the SGW in spite of him declaring a policy of unrestricted submarine warfare.

During the Battle of Wilmington, McCain would be commander of all Confederate forces in the region before ultimately surrender on June 17th, 1944.

the Singer Building in New York City being repaired after being partially destroyed during a confederate air raid in New York City in 1944, during the raid a confederate bomber plane dropped a bomb directly at the spire, blowing up the spire and making the remaining upper floors collapse and fall in to the streets below (crushing 2 american barrels). reducing the size of the former skyscraper from 612 feet to only 413 feet. The tower blazed through out the night but in the morning it was no longer the 7th tallest building in the world any more, even the charred skeleton of the Philadelphia city hall was taller. Although Jake Featherston had a personal interest in architecture he was pleased to here that another American land mark was destroyed. after the war the singer building was left abandoned until 1957 when repairs begun the building was fully restored in 1959 and was re-opened in 1960.

George HW Bush was the confederate bomber that destroyed the Singer Building and other houses and buildings in air raids at the United States during the Second Great War. After the C.S.A surrendered Bush was on a bomber plane when he herd on the radio that the C.S.A surrendered, the bomber plane flew back to a air strip but when they got back to the ground 30 Yankees held them at gun point all of the people on the plane stepped off the plane and were arrested. Bush was later acquitted but when it was founded out that Bush too part to many air raids killing lots of people he was arrested and was sent to a 76 year prison sentence. today Bush is still alive but on parole now he's living in a suburban house in Florida. In a recent interview he stated that he is now a changed man, he no longer has racist views ageist black ppl and a hatred ageist the United States. BTW Bush did not mean to destroy the singer building, he was just doing his job and he destroyed the singer building purely coincidental.

that's a bit more justified than you might think: Patton's family is actually historically from Virginia and his more immediate ancestors had been dispossessed from there as a result of the Civil War (i can't remember if they were actually Confederate-aligned, but the point is that they left the state as a result of the war IOTL) and that's how they ended up in California

ya that makes sense

His family was actually close friends with Colonel Mosby. Patton actually spent time with the man and reenacted battle from the Civil War, with Patton having hte role of General Lee and Mosby as himself.

His grandfather was a colonel in the Confederate army and died in the war. His death led to his grandmother and father moving to California.

Edit: Also Josephus Daniels was born in North Carolina but his family left after his union sympathetic father was murdered.

Yet another compilation of photos


A Serbian Ultranationalist Partisan with an M. 1926 Light Machine-Gun that he picked up off a dead Austro-Hungarian soldier, date unknown.

A post-war sketch drawn by a Union Navy Pilot about the attack on the British Battlegroup during the Second Battle of Bermuda in 1943. The closest ship shown as the HMS Repulse coming under intense air attack by Helldiver Dive Bombers and Avenger Torpedo Bombers.

British soldiers in a trenchline in Holland during the German Operation codenamed Nordwind, circa 1943.

The Liberty Bell at Independence Hall in Philadelphia, circa 2019. The Bell survive the superbombing of Philadelphia in 1943, and following the surrender of the CSA, the bell would be rung. (Interestingly, in his unpublished sequel to Over Open Sights, Jake Featherston detailed a plan of his that after taking the Liberty Bell, it was to be displayed in his planned post-war museum called The Museum of Freedom.)

British Soldiers engaged in house to house fighting with the German Army during the Second Battle of Bremen, circa 1943.

A photo of wrecked French Hotchkiss tanks in Western Germany, circa 1943.

British gunners operating a field gun during the First Battle of Bremen, circa 1941.

A couple of Polish-American women as air raid wardens of the city of Chicago, circa 1941. Note that the helmets that they are wearing are the M1929 helmet, which was reject by the US Military but was used by the Union Civil Defense.

Members of the Pittsburgh Defense Force standing for inspection before being sent into battle during the city's intense battle, circa 1942.

The aftermath of the meatgrinder known as the Battle of Taipei, circa 1995. In the early 1990s, Chinese Nationalists in Formosa attempted to secede from Japan as they took advantage of the now weakened Japanese Empire. In response, the Japanese Government tried to stop it, but it led to a bloody conflict which lasted from 1992 to 1995. One of the battles of the Formosan War was the Battle of Taipei, which became known as the Pittsburgh of Asia due to the ferocity of the fighting. In the end though, the Japanese would win the war, thus retaining Formosa and cracked down on the Chinese Nationalists harshly.

Hungarian soldiers in Wohlynia, circa 1943.

Slovakian soldiers marching to the front in Galicia, circa 1942.

HMS Ark Royal (badly crippled by the Union Submarine USS Lionfish) prior to being sunk by her destroyer escorts off the coast of Bermuda, circa 1943.

High altitude reconnaissance photo of a suspected Confederate atomic reactor. Although production of atomic energy has been tightly regulated by the USA, Britain and the German Union for decades, the Confederacy and other powers are suspected of using atomic reactors for the development of nuclear weapons. This has led to the imposition of sanctions against the Confederacy and its Japanese allies which both have claimed are crippling their economies and threatening diplomatic relations with the United States and its allies.
 
His grandfather was a colonel in the Confederate army and died in the war. His death led to his grandmother and father moving to California.

It wasn't just his grandfather but several other members of the Patton family served in the Confederate Army. Including a great Uncle who served in Pickett's division.
