Interesting Alt-History Movie – C.S.A.: The Confederate States of America

The other thing I watched on TV DVD last night was an alternate history movie C.S.A.: The Confederate States of America.

It had as its point of departure that the Confederacy had been able to convince the British and French to openly support the CSA – support which include troops at Gettysburg which broke the Union army.

The movie is done in the style of a broadcast of a British documentary about the CSA over CSA TV including “commercials”.

There are funny moments and serious moments. I especially liked the “vintage” film of an Abraham Lincoln in exile talking about his own failings in not seeing how slavery was the real rot in the American Nation. The fake commercials made me feel uncomfortable, but the payoff was worth it. The movie covers the history of the CSA right up to contemporary times.
If you like alt-history, check out this movie.

Update: I watched the movie on a Netflix DVD, not a TV channel.

  1. What channel was this? Never heard about it.

    Anychance they’ll repeat this anytime soon?

  2. Oh, the CSA movie I watched on a Netflix DVD, not a TV channel. It was not on TV. I do not remember where I heard about it from originally. I had put into my Netflix queue about 3-6 months ago waiting for it to release.
