After the abolition of slavery Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, and Maryland have succeeded from the Union, and called a constitutional convention in Baltimore. Certain aspects of the constitution, like protections for slavery, are non negotiable, but others, like voting rights, are still open to debate. please assume that for all governmental aspects not included in the poll, that the CSA decided to copy the Articles of Confederation while amending it somewhat to fit with the results of this poll.
