Firstly, bad link.

Secondly, it fails the alternate history condition that it be feasible. The idea that SC could have survived for any more than a few months is ludicrous: it's a tiny, tiny state and not easy to defend either. Its lack of manufacturing would make it at the mercy of trade sanctions, and would have failed in the protectionist economy of the time.

Completely bogus.

You just described a Caribbean Island of 1860. Is it not ludicrous.
