Dixie Victorious - What if the Confederacy Won the Civil War?

Four score and seven years after the founding of our great nation, the United States of America found itself embroiled in a bloody civil war which pitted brother against brother and father against son.   History records that the Union won this bitter conflict thus preserving the integrity and unity of the American republic.

Today on Far Future Horizons  we take another foray into alternative history and explore the world of Dixie Victorious and visit an alternate timeline where the Confederate States of America (C.S.A.) won the American Civil War and the institution of slavery persists till this day.
Our point of diversion occurs when the imperial powers of Great Britain and France intervened on the side of the Dixie Republic resulting in the defeat of the Union forces at Gettysburg in 1863………

C.S.A.: The Confederate States of America is a 2004 mockumentary directed by Kevin Willmott and produced by Spike Lee. It is a fictional "tongue-in-cheek" account of an alternate history, in which the Confederates won the American Civil War, establishing the new Confederate States of America (that incorporates the former United States as well). The film primarily details significant political and cultural events of C.S.A. history from its founding until the 2000s. This viewpoint is used to satirize real-life issues and events, and to shed light on the continuing existence of discrimination in American culture.

C.S.A was released on DVD on August 8, 2006 and is available from Amazon.com
