Woodrow Wilson was a confederate politician who served as the 12th President of the Confederate States (1916 - 1919).
A moderate reformer, he was seen as the face of progressivism in the Confederate States, legislating to end child labor. He also formally introduced segregation into Confederate government offices, in place of the white supremacy policies of his predecessors.
Wilson also set up the confederate reserve.
His tenure was also dominated by his reaction to the Mexican Revolution, and the beginning of a decade of confederate intervention in the country.
In September 1919 he suffered a serious stroke that left him incapacitated and bedridden, in October he suffered another, fatal stroke.
