This althist deals with a situation in which the Confederacy won the Civil War and was granted independence of the Union. Most of this is focused on how the politics of the Union and the Confederacy would have changed. This also changes many events in American and even World History. However, as I continue to go year by year into the events of the Union and the Confederacy, the people will get more and more obscure, and probably by the time we get to the 2000's, they'll be completely made up. This is because such a change would have affected so many people, who may not have immigrated or may not have entered politics in this scenario. Try to recognize that this is about thehistory and politics, not about familiar people.
