They shouldn't of counted on the European powers of the time interving to help them. England may have done but they had there hand tied when the war was portrayed as a war on slavery. Additionally they got a lot of there cotton from colonies so the CSA wasn't needed for pure resources.

Anyhow they also had some cracking battle songs and frankly there flag is more aesthetic than the stars and stripes

Excuse me, did you say ENGLAND? Remind me of the year of the US Civil War, and then state which country you thought it was again.

At the end of the day both sides was evil. One had slaves the other slaughtered millions of natives.

Many folk often forget Russia's express support for current American government; without it, Britain and France would be much eager to do something against it.

If the Copperheads had won the 1864 election, probably. Actually, if the Confederacy had gone with guerrilla tactics, they might've been around today. It's all about making the invasion as expensive as possible for the North in terms of lives and materiel.

Because I like it. The Battle Flag is the one everybody is calling racist and the Stainless and Blood Stained Banners were the actual racist ones. Plus the is the original.

I would say possibly if they had won at either Battle of Bull Run and managed to capture the capital which wasn't far from Richmond.

Maybe if the Confederacy won the battle of Gettysburg, and if the Union didn't take Vicksburg.
