Was Our Confederate Government Recognized by other Nations?


The definition of State, and Nation are defined in Johnson’s Dictionary of the English language (1755) edition…..


State c. Mode of government.

HoJIate li.’.-A Ic ;:Ani-.; v.;:f-_iii any part of the

NATlON.’a. /. [»«//<!», French ; tmtio,


1. A people distinguished from another

people ; generally by their language,

origin, or government.


So, as we can see: A State is a mode of government: A Nation is a people distinguished from other people by their language or government.

Each State which united in our Southern Confederacy was by every definition a State/Nation within itself.


These Southern State/Nations united in a Confederacy wherein they established by Constitution a central governing bureacracy to handle certain enumerated powers to which they granted authority.


What did our Declaration of Independence declare?


Let us read……


That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.”


So each State was declared to be FREE AND INDEPENDENT STATES.


What did our Articles of Confederation declare?


Let us read……


Each state retains its sovereignty, freedom, and independence, and every power, jurisdiction, and right, which is not by this Confederation expressly delegated to the United States, in Congress assembled.


So, in review, we see that a Nation is a State, a State is a Nation, and that each of our Southern Confederate States were indeed Nations/States.


So we return to the original question……


Was our Confederate government recognized by other nations?


Each of our Southern States  meet the definition of a State, and a Nation, therefore are indeed States/Nations.


These Southern States/Nations, did unite in a Confederacy, they did establish a Constitution between themselves that did establish a Confederate government.


These States/Nations, did recognize their Confederate government, the people did grant it their Consent, as so many did give the ultimate sacrifice for it, they did defend it, and did recognize it. Therefore our Confederate government was indeed recognized by other Nations, ALL THIRTEEN OF THEM.


What is the requirement for the institution of governments?


Such is spelled out in our Declaration of Independence as a SELF EVIDENT TRUTH….


Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed”


The Southern State governments did recognize the Confederate government that they instituted via the CONSENT of the people thereof. To deny this, and to require that any Nation, or any people outside of our Southern Confederate States are required to recognize the Southern Confederate government that the Southern People granted to it their Consent and just powers, is to deny the very self evident truth as declared in our Declaration of Independence.

Such is as always the case: an illusion must be created to keep the conqued appeased…..

“…[A]llow them [the conquered] to live under their own laws, taking tribute of them, and creating within the country a government composed of a few who will keep it friendly to you…. A city used to liberty can be more easily held by means of its citizens than in any other way….
“…[T]hey must at least retain the semblance of the old forms; so that it may seem to the people that there has been no change in the institutions, even though in fact they are entirely different from the old ones. For the great majority of mankind are satisfied with appearances, as though they were realities, and are often even more influenced by the things that seem than by those that are…. [The conqueror should] not wish that the people… should have occasion to regret the loss of any of their old customs….”

    Why is restoration taking so long? You would think that each Southern State and Territory would have some sort of organized body politic by now. This CSA restoration effort has been going on since 2004. Stop complaining about the occupation of your country, stop bitching about it on social media, an get up off your asses and finally do something about it!

      Mr. Borris,
      It is the responsibility of the people within each Southern Confederate State to rise up and seize the opportunity to use what has thus far been established to accomplish the task.
      This body has researched and done all that it is capable in research and information sharing to our people, most of which seem more interested in romanticizing the past rather than building a future beyond the occupation. As the saying goes…
      “You can lead a horse to water but you cannot make him drink it”.
      The Tennessee plan has been long ago offered as a template/foundation on which to build, yet it has been for the most part ignored. It is up to the people now, they will remain subjects and continue romanticizing the past, ignoring their future and their ancestors work and sacrifice or not, the choice is theirs. I have heard the same complaint as you have made many times in the past, most of which have been directed toward those who have been working from those who have done either nothing or who’s actions have been outside the effort herein and have been so detrimental as to destroy the progress of this effort, more than once. All that is left is to wait for the people to decide if or not they are happy existing as second class subjects under occupation.

      • Rich B says:

        James, now that you mentioned in your response, (romanticizing the past) that was a problem I came across with people most of the time when I was a Registrar for Florida. I always heard the term (still hear it from time to time today) that the South is gonna rise again. Sadly, most folks are in their comfort zones and most will not even bother to make an effort for any real change.

        • james says:

          Sadly, so many are so caught up in romanticizing, and defending their ancestors and “Heritage”, that they are blind to the present and the possibility of the future.
          Most embrace the idea, but in reality don’t believe in themselves and that the restoration is possible, therefore they create a self fulfilling prophecy.
          They have grown to accept ridicule and a second class status under the occupation, and will exist in that place until they decide enough is enough.

    Yes over 40 countries recognized the CSA or CSA Government in Exile which has records. I note that the website here does not include the Territory of New Mexico which was lawfully claimed north of CSA AZ territory and south of 37 degree parallel by Gen Sibley. Further David S Terry was appointed by Davis as CSA Governor of CSA Territory of Nevada in 1861

    • james says:

      This is from the Introduction page of this website…..
      The Confederates States and territories occupied by the United States are:
      Arkansas, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, South Carolina Tennessee, Texas and Virginia ( which includes West Virginia)

      The Confederate territory of Arizona, south of the 34th parallel and the former Indian territory of Oklahoma, east of the 100 degree meridian.
      I am unaware of any claim above the 34th degree, if such is the 37th, please provide further information. I will research further as well.

    For example the Treaty with the Kingdom of Ponape was obtained by the CSS Shenandoah and was later ratified by the Confederate National Congress of the CSA Government in exile.

  5. Adrian G. says:

    I agree Mr Borris. I am working to get more Citizens so we can finally get the separate CSA Body Politic in each Confederate State so we can finally hold our elections and liberate the CSA once and for ALL!
    I founded an organization, we’re called “Citizens for Confederate Liberation Political Organization – CCLPO; we’re dedicated to getting the CSA restored, we’re going to be using the media to mass educate the public. I don’t let anybody join who has not first registered as a CSA State Voter Citizen. I am serious about liberating the CSA. What I encourage Citizens to do is tell others to become registered Citizens, we should also try contacting people in other States as well as other parts of the State to get restoration to be as quick as possible.

    We will liberate the CSA, it is ardane. God bless the CSA!
