                                                         The Confederate States of America
                             

...and on the afternoon of January 5th, 1862, President Abraham Lincoln and President Jefferson Davis signed the treaty that granted the states of Missouri, Kentucky, New Mexico, and Arizona to the Confederacy, alongside the territory that they had already controlled [see: Confederate Homelands]. Shortly afterward, Lincoln was impeached, but he managed to remain in office till the end of his term. In the South, reconstruction began in the border states and northern Virginia, where the Union had held sway during the war. The original Forrest plan was abandoned in favor of the Davis plan [outlined in section three], which was less strict in...

-Excerpt from A History of the Twin Giants, by H. Turtledove.



As we celebrate the fourth of July for our freedom from the British, so shall we celebrate the fifth of January for our freedom from the Yanks.

Our soldiers have returned to their families, while still maintaining a watchful guard on the border.

The North, bitter with defeat, has enforced martial law and maintains a standing army in their southernmost states.



The day after the treaty was signed, Lee began his triumphant march out of Maryland and back towards Richmond. Raucous celebration and whiskey littered their wake across the two states. These men served the Confederacy and led her to victory.



In the port that the Yanks had fought like devils to take, a small fleet of ironclads now forms, and they will defend our glorious nation for decades to come.



Our people are diverse, and yet they still overwhelmingly support those that led us to victory. The Democrats will no doubt rule Richmond until this generation has left the earth and joined their heavenly father.



Peace, though, brings discussions of other things. Religion once again came up in Arkansas. After Davis' initial outburst, it became the official position to make no mentions of religion in government circles in a purely secular fashion, to avoid controversy and possible treason on a religious basis. This policy was enacted in Arkansas.



Lastly, our nation has been left with a surplus in wake of the glorious victory.

Shall we lower taxes on the rich, to stimulate the growth of industry in our agricultural nation, or shall we lower the taxes of the poor, to stimulate immigration and reduce the risk of revolt? Further still, should we reduce taxes and institute reform in working hours, healthcare, pensions and the like? (If one of the last two options is chosen, I will put up the possible reforms to be voted upon.)

Lower poor.

Get more immigrants is going to be good.

Is it possible for a state to switch over without military action? As in, Wheeling decides the Confederacy is better, and joins us of it's own free will?
The best person ever.  She should have won the Peace Prize.

What? No full control over children? You do realize that some of us have particular plans for those children.

Only if rebels take control of it and hold it for a certain period of time.

Seeing as they have a massive army along the border, it's unlikely to say the least.
