The Revolution of 1861

This chapter discusses how the Confederate States of America, or southern states, dispatched a number of delegates to Great Britain in an effort to coax the British to recognize their right to self-determination. The southern states made such an effort as previously Great Britain had allowed Sicily and Naples to secure freedoms from Italy. The southern states were hopeful that their delegates would be able to convince the British about their right to self-determination and recognize them as an independent state. The chapter also finds that bureaucrats, politicians, and policymakers from these states made concerted efforts to ensure that their right to self-determination was recognized, helping them to emerge as an independent sovereign nation.

Keywords:   Confederate of States, Great Britain, Sicily, Naples, freedom, self-determination, southern states
