    The Zulu wars were LATER.

  • RE: British and French aid the Confederate States

    @barnee The British did still wear red. See the Zulu wars just 18 years later.
    I think the British coukd have spared no more than 5000 Inf. This would have been a great morale boost for the ANV and a blow to Lincoln amd his generals. As Barnee said, however, supplying them properly would have been the problem. Food is my main worry, although the ANV was fed adequately in 62. I wonder if the proud Southerners might have seen this “help” as an insult though. Lee’s army knew how to win battles. Would some have resented it and could there have been more desertions? Equally, would this influx of Europeans brought in more Northern volunteers?

    I see your argument for the French and Mobile. Taking back New Orleans would habe been very important, but would need to have been done sooner , rather than later, I think.
    Thanks fir thinking of me, @ABWorsham4 , but this question is probably not my subject. Sorry!
    I must confess that since my eye problems, I have only read fiction, albeit much historical fiction. The print in my Civil War books is far too small. I am glad I can read at all!
