The Confederate strengths were their numbers and their ability toshoot. However, their weakness was that they were cocky andunderestimated the power of the north. The Union had canonfactories all through the northern region of Boston. When theConfederates were bombarded with canon fire, it was...

There's no such thing, because there was no CSA until 1861.
The first President of the Confederate States of America.
Probably the most fundamental problem was that southerners were going to war to defend a principle enshrined in the Bill of Rights. This was States Rights, a theory of government where power was decentralized, with most power retained by the individual states, and a weak central government. Davis...
The CSA never made an 1862-dated cent. There are lots of replica and fantasy pieces that have been privately made and sold as novelty items. There was an entire set of Confederate "tokens" including 1862-dated "cents" made in the early 1960s and sold during the Civil War centennial observances....

Jefferson Davis was elected as president of the confederate statesin 1861. Superficially, he looked right for the job - a traditionalplanter-aristocrat with a respectable record in the Mexican War. In fact, he did not measure up to the job, being unable to controleither his own cabinet or the...

Most historians agree that the last authentic Civil War veteran died in 1953. There were old men claiming to have served for the next ten years, but little documentation supports any of their claims.

The president of the US is elected for a four year term and could be relected; however a president of the Confederate States could only serve one six year term.
the first answer was "nothing", but I strongly disagree about that. Jefferson Davis did many good things for the people of the South, but not for the people of the North. Jefferson led his people to fight for what they believe in, even though what they believed in was wrong. Jefferson Davis was...

Because Lincoln had changed the official war-aim by issuing the Emancipation Proclamation, which turned it into a war on slavery.After that, Britain could not intervene on the Confederate side without looking pro-slavery -and the British public would never have agreed to send troops for that purpose...

The states which initially formed the Confederate States of America seceded because of differences with the North regarding tariffs on imported goods and the expansion of slavery in the western territories.
The humbly-born Abraham Lincoln did not look like a front-runner for the Presidency, and was elected only by chance, as a compromise candidate. Yet he possessed finer qualities of political and human judgment than any other US President, before or since. The challenges he faced were massive. He had...

Yes, in Georgia.He was more-or-less fantasising that he and his cabinet could continue the struggle from somewhere West of the Mississippi.Hs two-year prison sentence earned him some sympathy, and he was allowed a dignified retirement.

  The first capital was Montgomery, Ala.; the capital moved to Richmond, Va., The Confederate States of America

Richmond, the capitol of the Confederate States, was captured by the US military in 1865 causing the Confederate government to flee southward and later dissolve.
The President of the Confederate States of America (they were onlyaround long enough to need one) was "Jefferson Davis".
Lincoln did not consider the Confederate States of America a viable political entity and believed them to be in "rebellion" against his government.
The one and only president of the Confederacy was born in Kentucky, but also lived in Louisiana and Mississippi. He was serving as a U.S. Senator from Mississippi when Southern states began seceding from the Union in 1860 and 1861.
He was opposed to tariffs on imported goods, which the South needed. He saw these as a direct tax on the South.But the war was not caused by Davis's opposition to anything. It was caused by Lincoln's opposition to any extension of slavery (one of the conditions in the last attempted compromise.)
