The Confederate States of America (CSA or C.S.A.), commonly referred to as the Confederacy, was a pre-War unrecognized secessionist confederal republic existing from 1861-1865.

Background[edit | edit source]

The Confederate States were formed from a number of southern states that seceded from the Union, beginning on December 20, 1860 with the secession of South Carolina. Ten more states followed South Carolina in secession and officially formed the Confederate States of America on March 11, 1861 when the Confederate Congress ratified its Constitution.

The Army of the Confederacy assaulted Fort Sumter in South Carolina and took it from Union control. This sparked the American Civil War. The Confederacy dissolved four years later when Confederate General Robert E. Lee surrendered to Union General Ulysses S. Grant following the Battle of Appomattox Court House on April 9, 1865. The Confederacy officially dissolved a month later when Union President Andrew Johnson declared resistance in the south to be dwindled and virtually gone.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

The Confederate States of America is mentioned only in Fallout 3.
