Photos from Featherston's Confederacy/ TL-191

I believe the the camps in Texas were named Determination, which was finally capture by Dowling's 11th Army, and Humble, which was turned over to U.S. forces by Texas Rangers when Texas seceded from the Confederacy. Both were commanded by Pinkard. The death camp in Louisiana that Pinkard commanded was called Dependable.

Thats right. Also at first at least Dependable wasnt a death camp but more of a concentration camp that was probably converted to a death camp eventually. Determination and Humble were death camps from the beginning of their operations.

Often overshadowed amid the horrors perpetuated against the black population of the CSA in the "Population Reduction" camps are the white prisoners likewise thrown into the hellscape of the camps. While nowhere near the scale inflicted upon the blacks, those whites who stood against Featherston and his regime faced the same fate as that of former Vice President Willy Knight, who had orchestrated a botched assassination attempt against Featherston following the latter's amending of the Constitution to make himself effectively president for life.

Featherston, to the surprise of many in the Freedom Party Guards, did not want to outright execute these "deluded" individuals the way he sought to purge the CSA of its black population, and so banned the mass-executions and gas chambers and touted the facilities holding these victims as "reeducation facilities" to bring those who had "suffered the yoke of Yankeeism to the point of insanity" back into the Confederate fold.

In reality the conditions in the "Reeducation Camps" were no better than those horrific tortures forced upon the blacks, with disease, cramped conditions, cruel treatment from their guards and rampant starvation. Particular brutality was forced upon those who had "sundered the Confederacy with foreign, Yankeeist ideals" such as racial equality, religious or ethnic diversity, and "Globalism." Indeed, the Freedom Party Guardsmen at the camps were at times driven to fits of apoplectic rage when dealing with these men, seeing them as "Race traitors," white men who dared stand with black men and say they were their equals. Particular punishments were inflicted on those Whites found guilty of Miscegenation, marrying and having children with blacks or other racial groups, which was a capital crime in the CSA. Men were often beaten to death, their fate labeled as "Heart Failure" or some other euphemism.

Due to the limited nature of these facilities, they are often overlooked in the wider scope of the "Population Reductions" but are no less a reminder of the full extent of the Featherson Regime's madness and brutality. Records state that the "Reeducation" camps in Mississippi held up to 25,000-30,000 at their peak, but when the Union forces liberated the main facility at Camp Deliberation only about 4,050 were still alive.

CSA Marine Corps General Samuel "Chesty" Puller, Seen in the Bermuda Campaign, 1941. While the CSA's Marine Corps saw little service in their field of maritime troops, they did participate in several operations in the Caribbean in support of the British efforts to retake Bermuda and the Bahamas, as well as commanding the Confederate Invasion of Haiti.
The extent of Puller's role in the subsequent Population Reduction efforts in Haiti are the subject of much debate, as the Confederate Occupation Authorities managed to successfully destroy the records surrounding the operation before surrendering to the US at the end of the war and Puller had, by that point, been withdrawn to command one of the desperate holding actions to stop Irving Morrell's Drive through Georgia, where he would be killed when his command car was strafed by US aircraft.

This is an important aspect of the Freedomites atrocities in the Destruction-Featherston's white victims basically. The highest number of such individuals would probably be from Cuba actually with some from the Mexican Confederates states and Louisiana bringing up second and third place and the rest from the rest of the CSA. Whites who were Radical Liberals,socialists and the rare full on communists...

Haitians rushing to get on an escape boat heading for US warships off the coast in the wake of the Confederate invasion, 1941.

With the Main Confederate States Marine Corps (CSMC) assault on Port-Au-Prince and other major cities in the west, the population, well aware of the Freedomite actions against blacks, fled in open terror into the Dominican republic or to US warships still waiting off the coast. Transports loaded to bursting with the refugees were soon in open flight, either south to US-alligned Brazil or making the perilous journey north to US waters.
In a rare moment of division between the CSA and their British Allies, a British Cruiser actually allowed one of these vessels it intercepted to make good its escape, causing a minor diplomatic uproar in Richmond.

Excellent additions.

...but came into contact with Trujillo's troops who opened fire on them. :(

They'd likely prefer a quick death to whatever horrors the CSA would inflict on them: it's likely Featherston, with all his rhetoric about how the 1915 Red Uprising caused the CSA's defeat, would unleash utter ruination on Haiti, aka the location where a slave revolt actually succeeded, and was an example often pointed to by anti-abolitionists of the mythical "Servile Insurrection" where the blacks, if freed, would take revenge against the whites.
With this legacy in mind, well, imagine the Nazi annihilation of Warsaw following the Polish Uprising of 1944 writ large all across the island. "no stone left atop another" and such.
