Ok I just dont see why thats not where most would not have wanted to go considering that many of the would have ties to family and friends in the US as well as the US being much more familiar to them culturally and in other ways than Haiti.I understand none of them but a handful wanting to remain in the former CSA but I would think the USA or even former Canada would be more attractive than Haiti. Was there possibly at some point a return to the US mirroring a back return to the South OTL when conditions were perceived as safer.?In the immediate aftermath of the Second Great War, one of the major uncertainties for the survivors of the Destruction in the former CSA was on if the US would remain, considering the prewar fates of Kentucky and Houston. In the end, there was an overwhelming desire by most survivors leave the former CSA behind; this did not translate as necessarily wanting to become US citizens, although some survivors did move north.
If most survivors of the Destruction had wanted to leave for elsewhere in the USA, then the Dewey administration would have accommodated their decisions.
