    Cuisine of the Confederate States of America

    This is seems like a minor idea, but I’m curious about. In a POD where the Confederate States of America won independence around 1862, with international recognition from Britain and France, and war-wariness from Copperheads and Civilians of the North. So after independence of the CSA, what...
  3. American Civil war but both sides fight in the best way possible

    Basically what the title says, how would the ACW have looked like if both sides had fought without committing the major strategic and tactical errors they did in OTL. The only rule in this thread is that the Civil war need to still happen, ofc you can make It shorter or longer.

  5. Anybody Remember “Captain Confederacy” By Will Shetterly and Vince Stone?

    So I was browsing for some alternate history fiction unrelated to the confederacy when I stumbled upon this. And the second I saw it I knew I was going to have to share and talk about it. The book is about superheroes in a world where the confederacy won the American Civil War and as such the...
  6. Richmond in a Confederate victory scenario

    I think one of the things not usually discussed in Confederate States victory scenarios is the very fate of the capital Richmond, Virginia. Most of the time, Richmond basically remains Virginia's capital even when it more or less becomes the Confederate equivalent of Washington D.C. (albeit...
  7. AHC: Confederate Civil War

    In this scenario the Confederacy won its independence after Britain declared war on the US because of a poorly managed Trent Affair. While Britain and the South weren't allies, their combined actions eventually force the Union to the table by 1863. The Confederacy gained Indian Territory at the...
