Description

The Georgia Secession tells the story, the rather cunning and devious story that leads to Georgia declaring secession from the United States. Events follow on from 1809; The Year they Freed the Slaves in which we saw President Thomas Jefferson freeing the slaves in the first book in the series. The freeing of the slaves was poorly managed leaving many freed slaves homeless and destitute. Poor Whites struggled as both freed slaves and a downturn in the U.S. economy, caused in no small part by the U.S embargo on trading with the British combined to raise tensions. Add to the mix British loyalists quiet since the revolutionary war, the 1812 War, the impending defeat of Napoleon together with the New England states pushing for secession and you have a book the involves you in the politics of the day at the highest level. As with my previous book in the series I have tried to be true to characters, dates, locations and actual events and intertwine actual history with alternative history.show more
