After Featherston: The Untold Story

3_Burning Freedomite Flag.jpg

Title card of a documentary film made sometime in the early 21st Century that shows the viewer the immediate aftermath of North America after the end of the Second Great War to the beginning of the Second Great Game between the United States, Germany, and Japan.

After Featherston is filled with never-before seen historical footage of the life of average former Confederate citizens and how the American government attempted to destroy all trace of Freedomite power within the former Confederate States. Included in the film are videos of Canadian and Mormon rebellion being put down, the beginning of Reintegration of states from the Confederacy, the remaining Canadian provinces becoming American states, the Houston Trials involving major and minor Freedomite leaders, and the cooperation of American, German, and Japanese governments dividing up the world within their own respective orders. An extra, but brief, segment involves Germany and Japan dealing with Britain, France, and Russia.

The film ends during the last years of the 1940's passing by, but not without the birth of an intergovernmental organization that aims to maintain international peace and security, develop friendly relations among nations, achieve international cooperation, and be a center for harmonizing the actions of nations.

President Richard Nixon with Queen Elizabeth II of England, Scotland and Wales, as part of the "Anglophone Accords," 1975

With the reemergence of the Republican Party following the "Lincoln Reversal" of 1972 and the beginning of the "Rose Bowl" era as the former CSA moved towards full reintegration, President Nixon, feeling domestic affairs were settling into a pattern of stability in North America, began to focus his attention on foreign affairs. Foremost among these was the USA's relationship with the UK, as the former wartime adversaries faced a new power dynamic in Europe.

With the rise of Wilhelm IV to the German throne following the sudden death of Wilhelm III in 1951, Relations between the US and Imperial Germany, already showing signs of tension before the Second Great War, reached a new cooling point. The "Great Falling Out" of 1963, when a meeting between President Joseph P. Kennedy Jr. and the German Foreign Minister went horribly wrong following a discussion over Germany's heavy-handed subduing of a rebellion in her East African colonies, combined with the imminent collapse of Austria-Hungary and the Ottoman's move to strengthen her ties with the USA, nearly caused another War to break out. Though conflict was averted, the relationship between the two powers seemed inextricably sundered.

With the weakening of the Socialist Party, increasing dissatisfaction with the Democrats and the growing number of ex-Confederates returning to US citizenship, the Republican party, long sidelined in US politics since the Second Mexican War, saw their chance to reemerge, and following the election of Nixon began courting the UK and French governments.

In the wake of a second defeat in a war against Germany, as well as the Superbombing of several of her major cities, the UK was in dire straits economically and socially. While the Silvershirt party had been outlawed and their leader, Oswald Mosely, handed over to and imprisoned by the Germans, rumblings of far-right dissent still shook the rundown slums and mining towns of what remained of the Home Islands. Of greater concern to Parliament and the Royal family, however, were the increasing statements of LEFT-wing groups, particularly the underground "Red Front" organization, who staged a series of protest marches and strikes in major industrial towns, further crippling an already staggered economy. Queen Elizabeth II's rise to the throne in 1955 following the death of her father quelled dissent for a time, as it was hoped this new, young monarch could help affect meaningful change, but 10 years on little had been done, and the Socialist and Anarchist groups seemed stronger than ever.

To say the British Royal Family and the Parliament were surprised when, shortly after Nixon's election, the US government reached out to "expand relations" with the country would be an understatement. The Prime Minister, Anthony Eden, quickly convened a meeting with US Ambassador Gerald Ford, where a US proposal to expand investments in British businesses to help repair her economic structure was outlined. Furthermore, the US agreed to roll back some of the restrictions on British trade and military strength in exchange for a British guarantee that she would respect Irish sovereignty and not attempt to reclaim any of her defeat-stripped colonies.

Given the UK's state, the latter obligation was easy enough to accept, and the "US-UK Treaty of Cooperation" was signed in a private meeting on January 8th, 1973. Given the desire of the US government to retain cordiality with Germany, it was hoped to keep these negotiations secret for as long as possible.

With the influx of cash from US businesses and investment groups, as well as the pro-socialist cant of the USA's politics, it wasn't long before much of the tension in the British Isles began to ease, and indeed a period of economic prosperity was soon unfolding. Modernization of such services as the Railway network was begun with the introduction of Diesel and Electric locomotives to replace the UK's steam fleet, and the new security of Banks allowed for local investment in infrastructure updating and advancement of technological assets. For this, US companies got new markets to sell their goods and services, as well as a new ally in the growing global crisis of Imperial hegemony: Japan was making inroads into China and threatened India, and while Wartime expedience had caused the US to turn a blind eye to their expansion, the Ottomans were becoming increasingly concerned about the approach of the Imperial Army. the US needed regional allies in the event of a renewed war, and the UK still held some territories in the Indian Ocean and Southern Pacific.

The Secret could not be kept for long, however, as the treaty was followed two years later by an invitation from the British Royal Family to the president, to visit the UK and meet the Queen personally. Nixon, hoping his overtures would earn him votes from the "Feddies" as the nickname for the former Confederates went, readily accepted.

In what would be dubbed the "Anglophone Accords" by the Media, Nixon arrived for a formal state visit in 1975, the first sitting US president to visit the UK, and met with the Prime Minister and the Queen at Chequers, the PM's estate. Nixon delivered several gifts to the Queen that had come from friendship groups in the USA (more so the former CSA) and following a private luncheon where the two discussed several informal topics, Nixon made a public address citing the two countries' shared history, and expressing his desire that the pre-1862 cordiality could be restored. The Prime Minister followed up his speech, thanking the President for his words and expressing the gratitude of the nation for America's aid in these trying times. Following a tour of Edinburgh Castle and a review of the Coldstream Guards, Nixon would return home to the well-wishes of the English people, and the glowing praise of the "Feddies." His reelection was all but guaranteed, and he would serve another 4 years as President.​
 
Notable Fighter Aces of the Confederate Air Force

A propaganda photo of Confederate Fighter Ace Captain "Happy Jack" Ifrey.
Jack Milton Ifrey was the CSA's top ace during the Second Great War with a total 147 air victories, third highest for the Radius after Alexander Pokryshkin and Ivan Kozhedub. Born to a First Great War veteran in 1920, Ifrey would join the Confederate Air Force in 1938 and would become a fighter pilot. During the Second Great War, he would take part in air operations during Operation Blackbeard, Jupiter, and Coalscuttle, the latter one he almost got killed in. After the Pittsburgh Fiasco, Featherston would make Ifrey a senior commander for Confederate Air Defensive units to combat the ever increasing Union Bombing Raids on the CSA. At war's end, Ifrey would surrender to Union Forces in the Wilmington Pocket and would spend a few years in captivity before being released back to Texas where would become a senior officer for the Texan Air Defense Force from 1949 until his retirement in 1972. He would life a quiet life in his home town of Houston, Texas until his passing in 2004. During his SGW service, Ifrey would pilot in the A-38 Hound Dog fighter and towards the very end, would fly the A44 Raptor, in which he got 17 confirmed kills in.

A photo of Tex Hill next to his Hound Dog at Confederate controlled Wright Field in Ohio, circa 1941.
Born in July of 1915 to Confederate Missionaries in Japanese ruled Korea, David Lee "Tex" Hill would be raised in Confederate Texas. He would initially join the Confederate Navy in 1936 serving as a recon plane pilot aboard the cruiser CSS Virginia, Hill would then transfer into the CSAF in 1939, in which he would become a fighter pilot. Hill and his unit, the 14th Fighter Wing, would take part in Operation Blackbeard in the Summer of 1941, where they made escort missions to CSAF Mule dive bombers. During that time, Hill would shoot down his first air victories, 7 P-24 Hawks, 2 P-16 Peashooters, and 3 P-27 Sky Shark fighters along with 2 Douglas B-18 bombers in his Hound Dog fighter. His unit would then be transferred over to New Mexico in late 1941 where they also provided escort mission to Confederate Mule and Falcon bombers in that region. From December 1941 until May 1944, Hill would have a total of 94 confirmed air kills, making him the 2nd highest ace of the CSAF. In May of 1944, the Texans would revolt against the Confederates and Captain Hill and few others in his unit would join the rebels. During the last months of the war on the side of the Texan Rebels, Hill would shoot down a total of 6 Confederate and 2 Mexican aircraft over Texas. After the war, Hill would be a senior commander for the newly formed Texan Air Defense Force and later become it's commander until his retirement in 1974. In 1976, Hill would be elected as President of the Republic of Texas, in which he used his status as a war hero to get him elected. He would remain as president of Texas until his term expired in 1983, after which he would live out a peaceful life at his Ranch outside of Terrel Hills until his passing in 2007. Tex Hill during the duration of the SGW would fly 3 different variants of the Hound Dog fighter.

A photo of Vermont Garrison in the service of the United States Air Force, circa 1952.
Vermont Garrison, who was the third highest ace of the CSAF during the Second Great War, was born in Pulaski County, Kentucky in 1915. His father was be killed in the First Great War not after Vermont's birth. From 1936 to 1940, he would serve as a school teacher in London, Kentucky in one room elementary schools. Following the return of Kentucky to the Confederacy in 1940, Garrison would join the Confederate States Air Force as part of his conscription requirements. During the Second Great War, Garrison would serve in the 96th Fighter Wing in the Missouri Region of the American Front from August 1941 to May 1942, in which he had gained a total of 8.5 confirmed air kills there. In May of 1942, his unit would be redeployed to Ohio where they provided escort to bombers attacking Detroit and also cargo planes supplying Canadian Rebels across Lake Erie. The 96th Wing filled that role until September of 1942 when they were redeployed yet again, this time to support ground operations of the 14th Corps in the Monongahela Region south of Pittsburgh. During the Battle of Monongahela and the subsequent fighting around Pittsburgh, Garrison would shoot down a total of 26 Union aircraft as well as destroying 4 Union ground vehicles and 2 barrels. During Operation Rosebud, Garrison's unit, which was refitting at Wright Field in Ohio, would be hastily sent to the front to counter the Union attacks in Western Ohio. During this time, Garrison would shoot down another 12.5 Union aircraft and destroy 10 ground units, and on December 27th, 1942, Garrison's plane would be shot down and Garrison would be taken as Prisoner-of-War, which he spent the rest of the war at a POW camp in Wisconsin near Fort McCoy. Following his release in 1946, Garrison would return to his pre-war job as a school teacher in Kentucky, which he had occupied in until 1952. That year, Garrison would join the United States Air Force and would be a fighter pilot, in he would effectively become one of the few wartime CSAF pilots to also serve in the USAF post-war. He would serve in the USAF until his retirement in 1973 and would live until 1994 in Kentucky. During his service in the CSAF, he would fly the Hound Dog fighter and would have a total of 47 confirmed air victories, making him the 9th highest Confederate ace of the war.​

Our Intrepid Johnny here has managed to seize some important Yankee information and is heading back to his lines!
There's honestly a lot you could with New Mexico and west Texas during SGW anti Confederate and Mexican guerrillas made up of American ranchers and cattlemen, someone actually managing a horseback train robbery, camel rider scouts, Mormon gun runners etc.

I wonder which OTL German officer would likely to command a formation of German collaborators/defecting prisoners of war/far right militants under Russian command, in the Eastern Theater during the Second Great War?

Ferdinand Schorner? Walter Model? Von Reichnau? Erich von Manstein (for irony points)?

Paul Hausser might be the man, if we imagine the collaborators to be of the "man, wouldn't it be cool if we had regular Pogroms against our Jewish populace in Germany as well" variety.

Here's another question: what about the Ukrainian resistance? The UPA, the Banderists, men like Dmytro Klyachkivsky? The region was occupied by Germany, but I doubt they'd want to go back under Russia either.
 
Considering in OTL a lot of British nobility actually married into American new money during the 19th and early twentieth century, to the point it actually became a popular literary trope. I wonder if with the decline of Anglo-American relations and growing political ties between the United States and Central Powers would lead to marriages between German nobility and the American new money class.

So I'm aware that Charles XI is probably supposed to be Charles Maurras or something, but in my head, I always imagined him looking like this:

Who "Charles XI" was before France became a kingdom again is never stated in the books.

However, it is another error that Dr. Turtledove did when you do some research into the royal lineages of France. Technically, it can't be a Charles XI, since that title was already taken by an uncrowned relative in either the Orleanist or Legitimist branch nearly a century before the mid-1900's.

I did a head canon post that fixed this mistake awhile ago.

Sounds like a good fit for commander of the Teutonic Grand Ducal forces. Von Reichnau could be the Teutonic Grand Duke's military adviser/minister of war.

As for Herr Schorner, he could command the military forces of Joseph Goebbel's puppet administration in German territory occupied by France...
 
Here's another question: what about the Ukrainian resistance? The UPA, the Banderists, men like Dmytro Klyachkivsky? The region was occupied by Germany, but I doubt they'd want to go back under Russia either.
The Ukrainian Insurgent Army would definitely be fighting against both the Russian occupation and the German re-invasion. After the war they would fight the German armies and the armies of the Kingdom of Ukraine until the last active insurgents surrendered in 1948, although local and sporadic resistance would continue until 1955. Some members of the UPA would also selectively collaborate with the Russian Empire, although the Russian Empire raised their own collaborationist "Ukrainian Armies" and well as units of ethnic-Russians in Ukraine loyal to the Russian Empire.

The Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN) would also exist, founded by Ukrainian exiles in Paris, France in 1929. The more moderate wing of the party would be led by Yevhen Konovalets, as opposed to Andriy Melnyk who led the moderate wing IOTL, as he would be a general in the army of the Kingdom of Ukraine. Thus, the moderate wing would the OUN-K. The radical wing would be led by d Stepan Bandera and would be the OUN-B. They, along with the Ukrainian Insurgent Army, would be responsible for numerous atrocities during the Second Great War against Jews, Russians, Poles and Germans. As a result, after the war, Stepan Bandera, leader of the OUN-B, along with UPA members Vasyl Ivakhiv, Dmytro Klyachkivsky and Roman Shukhevych would all be executed on June 30, 1946 by the government of the Kingdom of Ukraine and the Ukranian and German armies. The OUN was forcibly disbanded by the German armies occupying Paris after the war in 1945.

Yevhen Konovalets (June 14, 1891-September 20, 1975). Shortly before the atomic bombing and subsequent fall of Paris, Konovalets fled to the United States of America, where he continued to advocate for a Ukraine free from German control and became active in many Ukrainian immigrant communicates, including those in the East Coast, Midwest, West Coast and the Canadian states. Until his death, he continued to defend his actions and always condemned the genocidal actions of the UPA and OUN-B.

In The Aftermath: the US Navy, the Americas, and US foreign Policy in the post Confederate World
Part 1: 1944-1960


Battleship USS Missouri is paraded through San Francisco on her way to retirement, 1985.

The Last of the "Mahanian Philosophy" Battleships built for the US Navy, with their successors, the Montana-class, cancelled following the End of the Second Great war, the "Mighty Mo" and her three sisters of the Ohio-class (Ohio, Kentucky, Wisconson) formed the core of the "New Model Navy" constructed to supplement Aircraft carrier operations in both the Atlantic and Pacific, with the speed needed for fast-response operations and to keep up with carrier groups, as well as provide close-in Anti-Aircraft support.

Of the Four, only Ohio and Missouri were completed in time to see service in the War, bombarding Confederate coastal positions in Virginia and South Carolina in support of Irving Morrell's "Drive to the Sea" and, in what would turn out to be the last Battleship vs. Battleship engagement in the Western Hemisphere, Missouri engaged CSS Louisiana off the Hampton Roads in early 1944 as she tried to break out of Newport News with a small squadron of CSN warships.

Not far from where USS Monitor and CSS Virginia had fought their historic duel in March 1862, in what some regarded as the first battle between the USN and CSN, the LAST battle between the two navies would be fought, as the punishing 16-inch guns of the Mighty Mo pounded the "King Louie" and her escorts, aided by Y-range fire control systems that allowed for great accuracy.
Within 4 hours, Louisiana was limping back towards port, trailing smoke from over a dozen fires on board, while the cruisers CSS Charleston and CSS Norfolk were settling to the bottom of the harbor. Missouri, for her part, had taken several hits, including a torpedo to her starboard side that, depending on who you ask, came from a CSN destroyer or a coastal torpedo battery. However, despite her damage she was still in fighting shape, and was back to bombarding Confederate positions within 3 hours.

With the End of the War, Missouri was part of the task force ordered to guard the remainder of the Confederate Fleet that had been gathered in Narragansett Bay, the few ships of the CSN Atlantic squadrons that were not scuttled or caught in the Superbombing of Newport News. Among these is the incomplete hull of the CSS Florida, a Confederate response to the Ohio-class that the needs of the war prevented from being finished, as well as the near-complete hull of the CSS Douglas Corrigan, the CSA's first and only Aircraft Carrier. The Florida would later be sunk in Superbomb tests in the Pacific, while the "Wrong Way" as it was so nicknamed after its namesake, would be completed by the USN and sold to Brazil to help maintain a pro-US force in South America.

Following the war and the completion of her two remaining sisters, Missouri and Wisconsin would eventually be assigned to the Pacific Fleet, with their first mission being to oversee the ceremonies commemorating the opening of construction on the "Columbia Canal" cut through the isthmus of Panama, which had, finally, been organized by US diplomats, such efforts long stymied by the USA and CSA threatening war if the other began such an effort. From there, They would be posted to Pearl Harbor, where as part of the USS Wilbur Wright Carrier force would lock eyes with the Japanese Navy, with whom tensions had almost immediately upon the end of the war begun flaring again. With some proclaiming "Unfinished Business" with the Japanese for the quasi-war in the Pacific before the rise of the Freedom Party in the CSA, the "Double-W" force would regularly close distance with their counterparts from the Imperial Japanese Navy, sometimes close enough for sailors on both sides to wave to one another. Missouri would regularly square off with the Japanese battleship Shinanao, one of the 18-inch armed "Super Battleships" that the IJN had constructed in an effort to match firepower against their numerical inferiority to the USN.

Heading into the 1950's, as the USN began to streamline its forces to reduce costs in the post-war world, the Ohio's were among the only wartime Capitol Ships to remain in active service, with much of the USN's pre-war or wartime forces being decommissioned, mothballed or, in the case of most of the battleships, scrapped. Aside from the memorialized USS Dakota, which was officially proclaimed as the USN's "Heritage Emissary" ship and docked alongside USS Constitution in Boston Harbor, and several other other vessels purchased by veterans groups to be preserved as private museums, the "Mahanian Fleet" of the pre-Great Wars era was for the most part reduced to scrap iron and recycled. With the fleets of the Allied powers such as the Royal Navy being reduced to near-impotence by Armistice regulation, the only fleets in the Atlantic region that posed a conspicuous threat to the USN were those of her allies, and of these only the Kaiserliche Marine of Germany could hope to face them in Open Battle. While Japan remained adversarial, they seemed content to consolidate their holdings in the Western Pacific.

it was during this period that the question of Superbomb warfare emerged to the fore of Military planning, with the subsequent question as to whether such massive navies served a practical purpose when superbombs could sink an entire task force in one blow. This philosophy was made all the more prominent following the joint US-German Midway tests, wherein several ex-Allied vessels and surplus USN and KM assets were subjected to a sequence of Superbombings, both from the air and from underwater. The results spoke for themselves: while the ships proved reluctant to sink outright, they were badly damaged, and the radiation contamination would have rendered them effectively inoperable as there would be no chance of their crews surviving.

Following these operations, the Close-knit task forces the Ohio's had been built for were reorganized to prioritize destroyers and cruisers as fast escorts, leaving the battleships at something of a loss of purpose: with no enemy battleships to fight and the carriers now dashing about with lighter vessels to support them, the quartet of battleships faced a period of shuffling about duties, including a hitherto unheard-of moment when all four were stationed in the San Diego Navy Yard.

L-R: Wisconson, Kentucky and Ohio in San Diego, 1954

Salvation came with the beginning of the "Peruvian War" of 1957 between Chile and Peru, where the vessels, in league with their allies in the Chilean Navy, lent their heavy guns to shore bombardment duties in support of the Chilean Advance. A Neo-Freedomite government had taken over Peru, with intelligence indicating that ex-FPG officers who had fled to the country being behind the coup, and this was compounded by the Peruvian forces being equipped with weaponry, particularly barrels and aircraft, that bore remarkable resemblances to that used by the CSA during the 2nd Great War.

USS Missouri bombarding the Peruvian coast, 1957

President David Ironhewer was hesitant about Committing US ground forces to the fight, but knew he could not allow a pro-Freedomite regime to stand in the Americas, as rumblings of similar attitudes had emerged in Bolivia and Ecuador, and Argentina, always pro-British from the start and serving as a hidey-hole for ex-Silvershirt officials, would likely throw its weight behind such an effort. In league with the Chilean government, as well as those of Columbia and Brazil, the United States deployed an expeditionary force of 47,000 men, augmented by Barrels, aircraft and logistical support, to back up the Anti-Freedomite Coalition of the Americas, or AFCA, which would subsequently become a permanent alliance organization, with Venezuela, Uraguay and Paraguay later joining.

After three and a half years of hard fighting through the Andes, more than half of Peru was in the hands of AFCA forces, and Bolivian intervention had been curtailed by a combination of economic incentives and the veiled threat of superbombing. Joseph P. Kennedy Jr, who had succeeded Ironhewer as president, sought a diplomatic end to the fighting, especially as tensions were beginning to heat up in Europe as Austria-Hungary was wracked by a series of internal crises and Germany cracked down on a rebellion in her West African Colonies through a series of bloody reprisals that were revealed to have been carried out by ex-Confederates serving in the German Foreign Legion.
With the Freedomite government of Peru not being forthcoming, Kennedy instead threw his backing behind the creation of a North and South Peru, with a pro-US government taking over the south, backed by Chile and Brazil.​

Native Sequoyahns during the Second Great War
One of the most well-known stories to have occurred when the USA and CSA fought each other for the fourth and final time was the use of indigenous soldiers by the Confederates (and occasionally by the Union).

Since the beginning of the Confederate Revolution, the Confederate government quickly developed cordial relations with the Indian tribes that existed in the then-Indian territory and sought an alliance with them in order to fight against the Union. Although Sequoyah was annexed as a Union territory after the First Great War, an underground movement of pro-Confederate Native Sequoyahns was created during the two decades before the Second Great War. Featherston knew that he could count on the loyalty of the Sequoyahns to rebel against the Yankee government once the Confederate Army took over the entire state and liberated it by the beginning of Fall 1941. When the Yankee White population was expelled by the Confederates, Sequoyah began to sent out its own men to join the fight against the Union. Some Sequoyahns, who lived in Texas or Arkansas after 1917, were trained and selected as a special force throughout the Confederacy.

The most famous of these were the Code Talkers who sent out orders to other Sequoyahns in their own languages, confusing the Union government. Recently declassified documentation revealed that most of the secrecy behind the Confederate kernweapon program was successful due to the use of Code Talkers. Several battles were also won or at least lasted longer in favor of the Confederacy with the help of Code Talkers. While this gave Confederate Intelligence an extra layer of secrecy, it was not enough to stop the gigantic force of Union forces descending upon the Confederacy during the last years of the Second Great War.


The Sequoyahns who were active during the war were captured, tried, imprisoned, and/or executed. However, President La Follette saw their languages to be used for Union Intelligence. Often times, Code Talkers were granted amnesty or a reduced sentence in return for their service to the U.S. government.

Code Talkers have been a controversial topic in the history of the Second Great War. Despite being enemies against the Union under the Freedomite government, the vast majority of the Code Talkers would be granted U.S. citizenship and become involved in classified operations against the Japanese Empire during the Second Great Game. Some have argued that they should have been given the same treatment as the Freedomites did, while others argued that they were merely soldiers who were not directly involved with the crimes against humanity that occurred in the CSA. President Dewey would later write in his memoirs that both he and La Follette did not wish to condemn the Code Talkers in order to gain the support of the Sequoyahn population, who have historically been screwed over by the U.S. government.

Below are photographs of Sequoyahns, Code Talkers and non-Code Talkers, who fought during the Second Great War.
