What would you do in the position of either Jefferson Davis or Abraham Lincoln?

I would remove US troops from the South, but keep a naval blockade while faking negotians for about five to ten years. This would force Britain and France to use Egyptian and Indian cotton, and put a strangle on the souths economy. Eventually, the south would be so destitute that it would collapse in on itself, and I would pick up the pieces.

Oh and if I was Davis, I'd start signing peace deals and trying to reenter the union.

Say what you would do, and if you want, be another bloke.

I would fight and die for the Confederacy. The Confederates were in the right.

Quote from Sam Houston:

Let me tell you what is coming. After the sacrifice of countless millions of treasure and hundreds of thousands of lives, you may win Southern independence if God be not against you, but I doubt it. I tell you that, while I believe with you in the doctrine of states rights, the North is determined to preserve this Union. They are not a fiery, impulsive people as you are, for they live in colder climates. But when they begin to move in a given direction, they move with the steady momentum and perseverance of a mighty avalanche; and what I fear is, they will overwhelm the South.

The Confederacy practiced slavery and started the war, that's enough for them to be in the wrong.

That quote is pathetic. America is a weak nation and it has been since the american civil war solely because the union emerged victorious politically.

This so called "weak nation" has one of the best militaries in the world. If that's how you define a "weak nation", then IDK what drugs you're on.

America from the civil war onward was not weak. It defeated a old great power, intervened from China to Nicuragua, and ended up destroy Japan and helping defeat the Germans, with most of Western Europe as it's prize, and now it has the most capable military in the world.

Compare that to a Confederacy that would collapse in a few decades, and you see that the clear stronger country is the United States.

I request we enslave you!
You dont contribute in any way to society, thus you have to do it with hard physical work.
Oh and we can kill you at any given time and would not be charged for it.
If we enslave people like you, I dont see anything wrong with slavery either.

even if the confederates won, slavery wouldn't have lasted much longer anyway. Slavery was being outlawed worldwide and new technologies rendered slavery useless. Today, only the most technologically backward countries still have slavery

I also think the modern slavery system is better. Just put them all in jail and force them to work there.

Confederates lost the war when it began. Not enough manpower. Not enough industry. The Union made a lot of tactical mistakes but it still won.

A better question is: what the white Southern elites should have done instead of seceding which turns out to be disastrous for them. I believe the end of slavery is inevitable. However negotiating an end to it with slave owners fully compensated and industries preserved should be a good approach. Most countries have abolished slavery which is inevitable since slave labor is not very productive in a modern capitalist world. However not many have abolished it without compensation.

You needed a battle of annihilation to force a peace, that could be the Confederate's only short term hope once the war started. In the long term though, the CSA is doomed. It will have a tattered economy for it's existence, constant problems in it's society, a leadership composed of aristocratic idiots (for the most part), and another war with the union if they do manage to survive a while.

As the South, you don't have the resources to defeat the North 1v1. You need to promise Mexico all of Cali, AZ, and NM, then offer Britain Washington, Oregon, parts of Michigan and Maine and stuff, and tax-free, reduced-cost cotton.

The only way for the Confederacy to win was to get lucky and getthe border states to join the Confederacy. Otherwise, the Confederate economy would drive itself into the ground with the blockade while the industrial North would wear down the militarily disciplined South with numbers and Grant.

As the North, stick with the Anaconda Plan.

As the South, make deals to rejoin while industrializing the Southern economy and abolishing slavery in order to provide more industrial workers and more manpower for war, and in turn slave revolts would stop, stabilizing the south.

But Karl,

Jefferson Davis had a Jew as his secretary of State. Judah P. Benjamin. So obviously, the Confederacy wasn't the true America, because it publicly approved of a Jew. Therefore the Confederacy was a Zionist conspiracy, because a Jew headed part of the government.

Also, the Union led to the growth and imperialism of the US, and its growth as a world power. The Union also attracted millions of pure Germans from their homeland to settle it. And Jews were heavily involved in the slave trade, which according to you isn't wrong.

So the Confederacy's main workforce was bought by Aryan gold given to kikes, and the Aryans chose a kike to be Secretary of State. Tell me how you support that Karl; Jews swindling whites out of their money, and then controlling their government.

Depends, if only you had tons of cotton farmers that could switch over to growing food.

You need to promise Mexico all of Cali, AZ, and NM,

As was said, Mexico was at war with France.

then offer Britain Washington, Oregon, parts of Michigan and Maine and stuff,

Those were all Northern Territories. Are you still talking about the South?

and tax-free, reduced-cost cotton.

Egypt and India. Britian had slavery "outlawed"
