The Confederate States of America (also called the Confederacy, the Confederate States, and CSA) formed as the government set up in 1861 by eleven southern states of the United States of America that had declared their secession from the U.S. The CSA's de facto control over its claimed territory was formally established on April 1, 1863, when President Abraham Lincoln signed the Richmond Accords, which recognized the existence of the Confederacy and its claim to the Oklahoma Territory.
Although there were some attempts of reconciliation between the two Americas, it wasn't until Confederate President Strom Thurmond succeeded in bringing about proper relations with US President Harry Truman on April 6, 1952, in order to "preserve the Confederacy." The Confederacy sided with the United States in World War I, it remained neutral for the first part of World War II. The reasons for its neutrality primarily centered around a hostile and poor civilian population, which was weary of another war, and the blatant support for the Nazis among the KKK.
Shortly after inageration, President J. Edgar Hoover moved the capital from Richmond, Virginia, to Atlanta, Georgia, and changed the Confederate flag. Hoover also pushed many bills through the Confederate Congress throughout his Presidency in order to mold the Confederate States into his vision of a "stable moral society." Hoover retired in 1981, and died four years later. He was buried in Hoover's Tomb at Atlanta. The current President is Mike Huckabee who was elected President in 2010 over Mark Warner.
