ya'll are right. but didnt England recognize brazil as a nation? hadnt england recognized the US as a nation? That was the big question whether or not England could recognize the Confederates as a legal nation if it gained it's independence. Mark how could you say that the Confederates could not crush the AOtP? Look at Chancellorsville? 2:1 odds! You cant say anything is impossible. Lee and Jackson fought and defeated "impossible" odds so why couldnt they destroy the AOTP? Lee seriously believed he could and would destroy the Union army and frankly i believe he knew a bit more about his abilities and that of his subordinates then we'll ever know. Gettysburg was Lee's worse battle not because of being slightly outnumbered of because his troops didnt have the ability to win but because of lack of intel on the enemy location, miscommunication and ultimately luck.
