Photos from Featherston's Confederacy/ TL-191

A photograph of four Freedom Party Guardswomen following their capture at Camp Henson, circa 1944. During the course of the Destruction, a large of women would be recruited into the Freedom Party Guards system thru The League of Confederate Women, which was an organization that had indoctrinated many of the women into the Freedomite Ideology. These women tend to be from the lower class in addition to also have been through a rough upbringing, which would make them into brutal guards toward the inmates of the Concentration and Death Camp System, especially to the Black Confederates.

Who were they IOTL?
 
The Cover of a recent edition of "Inside the Freedom Party" by former Confederate Treasury Secretary James F. Byrnes.

I see you made a place for Byrnes based on his position of Director of the Office of Economic Stabilization from OTL. He'll basically be the TL-191 equivalent of Albert Speer based on this. In my head-canon, I have him as the Secretary of War based on his succeeding position as Director of the Office of War Mobilization as there's no Secretary of War mentioned in the books, but this is also doable.

For the Southern Victory Hoi4 mod I lead, We're using Byrnes as Treasury Secretary and Blanton Windrip as War Secretary.
 
Any place we could take a look at the development of the mod?

Do you have Carl Vinson as Secretary of the Navy in your mod? May you list the potential cabinet list, please?
The in-game cabinet will look like this:

Head of Government: Willy Knight (Autocratic Despotist)
Foreign Minister: George Herbert Walker (National Corporatist)
Economic Minister: James Byrnes (National Corporatist)
Interior Minister: Ferdinand Koenig (National Corporatist)
Defence Minister: Blanton Winship (National Corporatist)

We don't currently have any plans for other cabinet members.
 
Autocratic Desptist and National Corporatist-are those Confederate political parties other than Freedom, Whig and Radical Liberal ?

They're ideologies. The Freedom Party is National Corporatist, while the still-existing-at-this-point Redemption League is Autocratic Despotist.

The full list of ideologies (from left to right) goes as follows:

State Socialist
Libertarian Socialist
Marxist-Lincolnist
Social Democrat
Liberal Democrat
Social Conservative
Authoritarian Democrat
Autocratic Despotist
National Corporatist

Painting of an Anti-Confederate Propaganda, pre-SGW. The painting is based on the Sinking of the CSS Petrel, a Confederate privateer ship that was sunk on July 28th, 1861. Derivatives of the original work were used during the First and Second Great Wars to instill courage and bloodlust against the Confederates. The most famous was that of a Confederate battleship being sunk during the Battle of the North Atlantic 1943, which featured the Confederate Freedom Party flag as its choice of colors for the flames.

I was looking on the internet today and I just realized something, which is about the Teddy Bear. Which my question that had just come into mind is this, does this iconic toy from OTL still exist ITTL?

Yes, because at the same time as the American teddy bear was being created, it was also being created in Germany

At the same time in Germany, the Steiff firm, unaware of Michtom's bear, produced a stuffed bear from Richard Steiff's designs. Steiff exhibited the toy at the Leipzig Toy Fair in March 1903, where it was seen by Hermann Berg, a buyer for George Borgfeldt & Company in New York (and the brother of composer Alban Berg).[11] He ordered 3,000 to be sent to the United States.[12] Although Steiff's records show that the bears were produced, they are not recorded as arriving in the U.S., and no example of the type, "55 PB", has ever been seen, leading to the story that the bears were shipwrecked. However, the story is disputed – author Günther Pfeiffer notes that it was only recorded in 1953 and says it is more likely that the 55 PB was not sufficiently durable to survive until the present day.[13] Although Steiff and Michtom were both making teddy bears at around the same time, neither would have known of the other's creation due to poor transatlantic communication

So, the concept of the teddy bear would still exist. It would just be a solely German creation. The question is, what do you call this bear? In OTL, despite hating his nickname Roosevelt gave permission for his name to be used for the bear, but this version of the bear would be German in origin, so maybe it's named Wilhelm after Kaiser Wilhelm?

A Wilhelm bear doesn’t quite roll off the tongue right. Maybe Billy (like Kaiser Bill) or Bully (like the phase Roosevelt was known for using) Bears instead?

I didn't know about the German connection with the Teddy Bear.

There are a few choices here, largely dependent on what the poster wants it to be:

1) Similar to OTL in terms of circumstances and name, but with minor differences , such as where it happened (certainly not in the CSA!)
2) They're called Steiff bears and T.R. is never associated with it.
3) Perhaps another type of stuffed animal toy is associated with T.R. in different circumstances (Teddy moose? Teddy bunny? Teddy buffalo? Teddy rhino? Teddy elephant? Teddy lion?) *In reference to his expedition, which may or may not happen in TL-191.
4) No kind of stuffed animal toy is ever popularized in TL-191.

i might be crazy, but i stg there was a mention of such a stuffed animal in "Drive to the East" IIRC when Micheal Pound's Barrel is trying to get past columns of refugees. I'll need to check the book again to make sure.
