Inspired by the recent thread on best Civil War Alt-TL's. What are the worst Civil War TL's you've read? Mine would be By Force of Arms, written by Billy Bennet. It plays out ike the poor man's How Few Remain: The Confederates win at Gettysburg and force the Union to negotiate, Sherman gets elected in 1869 (despite making it abundantly clear he hated politics) and attempts to reconquer the south, only to lose decisively in a series of lopsided battles, ending with President Sherman and Secretary of War Benjamin Butler getting kidnapped by John Wilkes Booth. The Confederates are almost uniformly good, while Sherman and co. are cartoonishly evil.
