Well this is another (if) topic. What if Confederation won the war? What would have happened in the North America? What would it look like in North America today? I am not arguing that the south had a chance to win on their own against industrialized north, nope they didn't stand a chance... but it is possible if the British had given south aid in the form of unlimited supply of weapons and other materials on loan or even directly intervention. If that really had happened, would the two sides keep fighting from time to time in the last 100+ years? Would either side expand toward the west and reach Pacific? Would there be a third or more countries exist in North America today?
