Confederate States of America (1955 FCN RP)

The Confederate States of America was founded in 1861, following the secession of eleven states from the United States of America. War ensued, with the Confederacy emerging victorious in 1863 after the near-complete annihilation of the Union Army at the Battle of Chancellorsville. A peace treaty was signed shortly thereafter, with the United States recognizing the Confederacy's independence and claim to Indian Territory and New Mexico Territory.

The Confederate States are comprised of the states of Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee, Arkansas, Missouri, Sequoyah, Texas, and New Mexico.

Several years following the War of Southern Independence, under the presidency of war-hero Robert E. Lee, slavery was abolished.

In December 1860, southern states began seceding from the United States of America over a variety of reasons, ranging from states' rights, slavery and Northern tariffs, and President Lincoln's call for 75,000 volunteers to invade the rebellious states. Ultimately, the states of South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Florida, Tennessee, Louisiana, Texas, Arkansas, North Carolina and Virginia seceded.

The War Between the States had begun. For the next two and-a-half years, war raged. The Union had more success in the western theater, capturing New Orleans, securing much of the Mississippi River, and keeping Kentucky and Missouri from secession. The South did better in the eastern theater, defeating the Union armies in battle after battle, although their invasion of the North ended in defeat at Sharpsburg, Maryland.

At the Battle of Chancellorsville (May 1-3, 1863), Gen. Robert E. Lee divided his army, then divided it again for a daring flank attack, which was brilliantly executed by Gen. Stonewall Jackson. The battle resulted in the destruction and capture of almost the entire Union Army. Jackson was almost a victim of friendly fire on the night of May 2nd, narrowly escaping catastrophe with just a minor wound.

Lee advanced swiftly on the Northern capitol of Washington, D.C., which was now largely defenseless. The Capital was occupied by the Confederate Army while peace negotiations began.

Under the Treaty of Washington, the USA recognized the CSA's independence, and ceded the states of VA, NC, SC, GA, FL, AL, MS, TN, AR, LA, and TX, as well as Indian Territory and New Mexico Territory. In return, the Confederate's relinquished their claims to Kentucky.

After the conclusion of the War, General Robert E. Lee began advocating for the abolition of slavery. in 1866, Virginia and Texas abolished slavery, followed by Tennessee and Sequoyah (formerly Indian Territory) in 1867. In 1868, under now-President Lee, slavery was abolished nationwide, and blacks became full citizens.

Under President James Longstreet, the CSA fought a brief war in 1888 with the US over the state of Missouri, which had proclaimed their intent to secede and join the Confederacy. The Missouri Conflict ended with a Confederate victory, and Missouri became a Confederate state.

Several minor wars were fought with Indian tribes in Texas, western Sequoyah, and New Mexico during the 1870s and 1880s. In 1898, the CSA intervened in Cuba, sparking the Spanish-Confederate War. The Confederacy handily defeated the Spanish, resulting in the transfer of Cuba and Puerto Rico to the CSA. The Confederacy granted independence to Puerto Rico in 1907, and to Cuba in 1913.

In 1916, the Confederacy joined the Allies in the Great War, supporting British efforts on the western front, playing a key role in the Argonne-Meuse offensive. In the 1920s and 1930s, due to increasing antisemitism in Europe, large numbers of Jews immigrated to the CSA (including Albert Einstein) due to the long history of friendliness toward Jews (the third CSA President and war-time cabinet member, Judah Benjamin, was Jewish), largely residing in Florida.

In 1944, the Confederacy became the first nation to develop atomic weapons, and in January 1955 launched the first satellite into space.
