Confederate States of America

 

from 1861 to 1865, the confederation of slaveholding states of the South that rebelled against and seceded from the USA between December 1860 and May 1861. The Confederate States of America was proclaimed at a congress in Montgomery in February 1861. Its constitution declared slavery the “cornerstone of the entire edifice of state.” By the end of May 1861 the Confederacy included 11 states: South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, Arkansas, Tennessee, North Carolina, and Virginia. Richmond, Va., was the capital, and Jefferson Davis was proclaimed president. The Confederacy unleashed the Civil War of 1861–65 in the USA. The defeat of the slaveholders led to the abolition of the Confederate States of America in 1865.
