History

Military

At the peak of its power, the CSA was the dominant power in the Americas. With Aid from the British, the Confederate Navy and Army outclassed their closest competitors (The US, Mexico, and Brazil) by leaps and bounds. From 1875 until 1909 marked the Golden Age of the Confederate Military, and saw them expand their holdings in the Caribbean by purchasing various territories from The United Kingdom. The Confederate and US had regular border conflicts, particularly on the Ohio River.

"The Black Rebellion"

The Black Rebellion occurred from 1903 until 1913 when the Peace of Atlanta was signed. Prior to the Coup led by the Confederate Army, African Americans where banned from working Factory jobs in most of the Confederacy. However in an attempt to match the work force of the Northern US, the New military government in the Confederate States allowed for African Americans to work within factories at the lowest levels. This caused many African-Americans to belive their situation was bettering, but instead it got worse. Many white Americans began to attack Factories that employed African Americans, causing the Central Government to crack down. By January of 1900, there were 243 reports of White Confederates attacking factories that employed African Americans. Eventually, the Labor Contract Act of 1900 was passed, which compromised between Moderates and Conservatives in the Confederate Government. The Act was seen as many to be "Neo-Slavery", forcing African Americans who sought factory jobs to agree to sign a ten-year Labor contract. Under this contract, they would be forced to work for ten years, and if, for whatever reason (including death) they did not work for the full ten years, they would have to return all of their wages earned up to that point. Many black leaders protested this act and urged African Americans to resist the contracts. More info here.

The Rebellion begins

On March 3rd, 1903, Phillip Turner and his followers seized a military garrison outside of Charleston. Within 3 weeks of fighting, Turner's Army seized most of Charleston. The Confederate Government responded with a force of 20,000 men to try to crush the rebellion early. The Battle of Charleston saw Turner's Army of 9000 fight against a better armed and professional army that nearly doubled their size. After three days of fighting, on April 9th, Turner and his remaining forces fled Charleston. Many Confederate Government officials saw this as the end of a minor spat rather than the start of a massive rebellion

The War Drags On

Weeks later, Turner's army re-emerged in the South Carolina countryside, attacking white plantations and recruiting freed "Slaves" to their cause. More and More African Americans saw Turner's revolt and joined the ranks of Turner's army, causing them to number nearly 26,000 by the end of August of 1903. The Confederates deployed an additional force of 40,000 men to stomp out the rebellion once and for all, but Turner's Army continued to elude them.
