Confederate States of America #11 (1863)

The Confederate States of America, commonly referred to as the Confederacy, was a confederation of secessionist American states existing from 1861 to 1865. It was originally formed by seven slave states — South Carolina, Mississippi, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, and Texas — in the Lower South region of the United States whose regional economy was mostly dependent upon agriculture, particularly cotton, and a plantation system that relied upon the labor of African-American slaves.  7,109 more words
