A what-if story
This is a “what if”, a work of fiction centred upon that conflict known as The American Civil War – a conflict that should be more correctly called The War of Secession. Using real people and real incidents it sets about rewriting history.
The story follows the efforts of the hero, James Neil Berkeley, a plantation owner from Virginia, who in the decade before the war sets about giving the Southern States a better chance to fight for their liberty, if they ever need to do so.
When the conflict does arrive he becomes the Confederate States of America’s Secretary of War. Setting to work, he uses all his skills, his guile and his contacts to ensure that his side triumphs in the conflict.

US Civil War story the War of Secession how the Confederacy won
Over fifty years or so I have daydreamed my life away making up stories as I went about the chores of daily life. They were sexually oriented fantasies. I try to be realistic - write how the world is or was - not hide behind the veneer of political correctness.
I hope readers get some enjoyment from my efforts.
