It lasted longer than the War of 1812 during which the British burned the White House, laid siege to Baltimore (which inspired the Star Spangled Banner) and had a landing force defeated at New Orleans by future president Andrew Jackson.

Why do they call it a civil war anyways, it's a walking contradiction.

Malcolm X and other black nationalists wanted a few states to establish a black homeland.

I think he had his eye on Georgia, Mississippi and Alabama.

You'd have to give Native Americans parts of the Prairies and South West.

Latinos could have border states.

I don't think Civil War would break out in a structured way.

Just a deterioration in law and order, leading to extreme violence and widespread crime. Something akin to Robocop, Soylent Green or The Purge.

It would be a good opportunity to return the territory to the people who were there before all the troublemakers arrived. Spain, Germany, Italy, Ireland and the rest could take our people back. Canada could help in organising it.

The English had a benevolent neutrality towards the confederate states in that it allowed warships to be built in England and blockade runners brought in munitions etc in return for cotton and tobaco.
France had troops in Mexico at the time that could have been a help to either side if they decided to get involved but decided to stay neutral.

As for today, no one would be getting involved

I reckon Pierre
Trudeau would put Canada forward as the lead country in the UN backed peace mission.

And I think Gary Trudeau would draw the cartoon about it.

Canada would get millions of refugees. Like I said they could process them for return to Europe.
