That does open up more questions. What would the legislation for a Southern-led Reconstruction be? Probably some of the most racist stuff imaginable tbh, with factions having the "Civil Rights" card being expelled from government.

The smallest USA you can play as is like PA,DE,and MD @MrPotatoTed can confirm. You wouldn't play as New England (which could succeed) or the CSA

I think New Jersey is part of that too.  So New England can secede, but PA/DE/MD/NJ cannot.

Easy to forget Jersey 😉

In the case that the Confederacy secedes, is it always the same states (provided they exist) as the historical CSA?

Yes

There should be rules and situations for if the Upper South secedes or not. Unless they got cut out for some reason, they should be in the Misc Rules section.

They're in scripted events. Secession Fervor Reaching Border States but that only includes MD, DE, MO, and KY. Quite a bit of events over the Confederacy establishing themselves

Weird though. I remember in the Civil War playtest that TN had abolished slavery prior to the formation of the CSA yet still seceded. Why would a state that had abolished slavery join the Confederacy? Perhaps add a rule that only states that haven't abolished slavery can join a Southern rebellion.

I stand corrected. There are several events that change who initially secceed and whether or not new states join them.

Is there a rule fix to prevent the Alternate Tennessee secession from happening?

If TN has slavery enabled, then they may seceed, if not then they wont unless another event enables slavery and they join the confederacy

I think these events might have been added after our scenario because we searched through the events to see if this could happen even though it didn’t make sense. 

yea there's quite a bit of new civil war related events
