…Tyrants Would Have It".

"It's 1864, and the Civil War is raging. But southern secession isn't the only danger threatening the Union. The U.S. has plenty of other enemies, foreign and domestic. If they got their way, this is what the formerly united states would look like – not two, but four nations jostling for space and supremacy on the land mass between the Pacific and Atlantic.

The map title reads: "Our Country as Traitors & Tyrants Would Have It; or Map of the Disunited States". It was published in New York by H.H. Lloyd & Co. In blue, it shows a maximalist version of the Confederate States of America (CSA).

The core of the CSA was composed of seven Southern, slave-holding states who seceded following the election of Abraham Lincoln in November 1860: Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas and South Carolina. After the Civil War began in April 1861, they were joined by four more slave states, this time from the Upper South: Arkansas, Tennessee, North Carolina and Virginia.

If its 1864 I don't see Kentucky or W.Va or even Southern Missouri being part of the South. Nor likely Eastern Tenn, which was very pro-union.
I'm assuming Lincoln losses the election and McClellan sues for peace. But the South would not be in a very strong position to demand those areas.

And don't forget northern Mississippi. The 'Country of Jones' was in open revolt against the Confederacy. A amusing little take on Mexico, too. By 1864 Maximilian was on the ropes.
