    Eventual abolition of slavery in victorious CSA - why?

    An oddly common thread in works involving Southern victory in the Civil War is the idea that they would of their own volition eventually abolish slavery and replace it with the "apprenticeships", "court costs", and similar post-Reconstruction arrangements to keep blacks productive but powerless...

    Instead of going to war, the south legally sues the united states for their right to secede

    This is something that always puzzled me as to why it didn't happen in OTL. instead of firing upon fort sumter when the union refused to evacuate its military positions in the seceding states, the south could have built a strong legal case that the union was an affair that required the consent...
  3. AHC: A Southern Unionist Museum and Memorial

    Right around 100,000 men from Southern States fought for the Union Army during the American Civil War (not counting border states.) Which is an insanely huge number when you consider the Confederate Army never fielded more than 500,000 men at once and only a little over 1 Million altogether...

    WI/AHC: Multiple uprisings during the Civil War

    What if, through 1861 to 1865, there were multiply uprisings in both the Union and the Confederacy? The Uprisings in the North are sponsored by Confederate Agents, Copperheads, and Southern Sympathizers, while the ones in the South are either local, or sponsored by some other power. List of...

    Threadmarks: Battle of South Mountain

    “With the fields of fire spread out over a space of nearly six miles over dense forest cover, the first day at South Mountain featured some of the most intense small unit fighting of the war. It was a fight of rifleman against rifleman, led by captains, colonels, and brigadiers.” -- Joseph...
  6. Confederate Congress References

    I’ve been trying to find a good database/reference for factions within the Confederate Senate. While Martis’s Historical Atlas has been really useful for the House, the senate has been frustratingly elusive. I’m looking for anti-administration vs pro-administration senators, because some sources...

    Education/School System in a Victorious Confederacy and Defeated Union

    What if, Lee’s invasion of the North, was more successful, and Mclellan became president in 1864, and although he wanted to continue the war, he was forced to sign a peace treaty, making the Confederate States of America independent, and gaining international recognition. Now, assuming this...

    BDWI: Why didn't the British and French intervene in the American War of Reunification?

    So I'm new here so this is probably a pretty stupid question, why didn't the British and French intervene during the War of Reunification? I mean they assisted the Confederates during the Great American War so why not intervene in favor of their former ally when the war broke out in 1889?

    AHC: Mexico reconquers Texas from the CSA

    With a POD(s?) of your choice, create a scenario where the Confederate States of America wins the American Civil War but manages to fuck up so badly that Mexico somehow reconquers Texas.

    DBWI: Spain neither keeps its American Empire nor supports the Confederacy

    As we all know, the American Civil War was a major turning point for the Union's relationships with the main powers in Western Europe. Most notably, the restoration of relationships with the UK and the deterioration of relationships with Spain. In no small part because Spain was attempting to...
  11. AHC: Make the U.S. Civil War as close to WWII as possible

    Inspired by @Admiral Bloonbeard's thread in "After 1900" about making The Troubles similar to the Syrian Civil War. I know people like to joke about how the TL-191 series turns out to just be "20th Century Europe in North America," but Admiral's AHC inspired me to suddenly come up with this...
  12. Postbellum: Confederate Victory

    This scenario will look at a possible timeline where the Confederate States are successful in suceeding from the Union. The war in the Mississippi theater would largely remain the same. The Union would succeed in capturing major cities like New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Memphis, Nashville, and...

    WI: The US State of West Florida

    In the 1810s, there was once very short-lived republic, called the Republic of West Florida. It didn't last long. They tried to capture some towns from Spain, but failed, and eventually became part of the Mississippi territory. But what if, instead, the Republic of West Florida was more...

    I was originally not going to post this at all until I completed it but then I gave in and decided to post parts of it as I went along. This is a revised version of a timeline I have on the Alternate History Wiki. So here it goes. Note: I acknowledge this is simply an exercise in alternate...

    Blood Red Cotton- A Confederate TL Chapter One: The Dixie Revolution/Introduction Well, for a start, I suppose that I ought to introduce this TL a bit more fully. There are a great number of fantastic CSA timelines on this site, and I hope to “throw my hat in the ring”, so to speak. In...

    Jubal Early's Raid

    During the grinding stalemate outside of Petersburg in 1864, a daring plan was hatched by General Lee to divert Union reinforcements and stir panic in the north. Jubal Early was dispatched with 15,000 men, to march through the Shenandoah valley and threaten the virtually undefended Washington...
  17. How would other minority groups fare in a victorious CSA?

    I think it goes without saying that a Confederate victory in the ACW would be very bad for Southern African-Americans. Slavery would most likely continue for at least a few decades. But what about other minority groups in the South? What would things be like for them?

    TL-191: What if the Red Rebellion succeeded?

    In the Southern Victory series the Red Rebellion is an uprising of black confederates who rose up in 1915. About 10% of the blacks in the CSA participated and they caused serious damage to the confederates in the process especially with US support. So what i'm wondering is, what would be the...

    [Timeline 191][DBWI] What if the Red Rebellion succeeded?

    While this is incredibly unlikely and verging on ASB I want to give a scenario that has been discarded hundreds of times another closer look. The Red Rebellion was a massive uprising of black people in the CSA that shook the nation while it was attempting to battle the USA. While the uprising...

For one such as ours, this question is complicated, intricate, and at times impossible to answer, especially if one examines it from the perspective of our entire history. Even that...
