Feel free to add to this page At Gettysburg Major General Jackson (who wasn’t killed by his wounds but still lived) takes the far eastern hill and moves the artillery up the hill and begins bombardment of the Union flank. Robert E. Lee sends a letter to Meade saying that "If you were to surrender now I would let your men leave to Boston unmolested". Meade replies "Why, when I've already won"?
With that Lee sends troops to attack the front lines and sends more troops around the eastern flank and hits the Union army from behind and sends the entire Army packing.
The path to DC was now open to the Confederacy. Lincoln opened peace talks with Davis and after 20 hours of negotiations
they agreed to the Treaty of New York which did these things:
A) Virginia would be re-entered into the Union.
B) The CSA would be recognized as an independent nation.
C) Slavery in the CSA would be replaced with serfdom reminiscent of medieval Europe where they would have the rights of man but still be under the rule of the ones who own them and be sold with the land and not as individual merchandise. Slavery in the USA would be officially banned.
The Treaty of New York was signed September 22, 1863. The Confederacy moved its capitol to Tallahassee so it was far away enough from the Union to avoid being captured (the State of Florida moved its capitol to St. Augustine). The change to serfdom happened nearly overnight in the CSA and was not liked by many of the rich but were glad to have it not entirely abolished.
Lincoln was surprisingly re-elected to a second term and on December 15, 1863 he changed the flag back to the Betty Ross flag with thirteen stars in a circle and one in the center to symbolize all the other states.
The CSA changed its flag too, the Army Northern Virginia's battle flag would be made into the canton with a pure white field.
Soon tensions in Virginia began to rise as they began to question why the Confederacy had abandoned them, were they just too eager to be free to care about the cost of Virginia, did they secretly plan this against us? Soon those thoughts became of outright hatred to the South.
