This is the official web page of the Confederate States of America. Official statutes and journals of Congress of 1861-1865 are contained herein and are, for the most part, still binding upon the Confederate States of America as is the ratified C.S.A. Constitution of 1861.
The national Government of the Confederate States of America does not, at this time, have any salaried personnel, but does pay some reimbursement of expenses of contractors for work contracted for by the government. It is important to note that the national Government is not structured to legally have control of the State C.S.A. Governments, but rather for them to function with the national Government and each other in accordance with the national C.S.A. Constitution and their own State Confederate Constitutions according to the dictates of the Citizens therein.
The Government of the Confederate States of America is not a political party nor a club but a government and thus does not endorse any political party or candidate nor club or other organization. Nevertheless, the Government does appreciate positive support by such other organizations and/or political parties and the C.S.A. Registered Citizens will elect candidates to hold the various offices of the various Confederate Governments.
The Government of the Confederate States of America never officially surrendered to the Federal Union and thus still exists as an occupied government under the control of the Federal Union (UNITED STATES, INC.) in the Southern States of America including: Arkansas, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, No. Carolina, So. Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia and within the Territory of Arizona and the provisional Territories including Colorado, Oklahoma, Kansas, Maryland, Montana, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Wyoming.
C.S.A. Registered Citizens live in these various states and are eligible to vote in Confederate elections. Non-voting C.S.A. Registered Citizens also live in a number of Northern and Western states which are not considered part of the territory claimed by the Confederacy and thus may not vote in Confederate elections unless they move to a Confederate State or Territory.
Most C.S.A. Registered Citizens are also U. S. Citizens by virtue of the 14th Amendment of the U. S. Constitution, which is not necessarily recognized by the Confederate States of America, but yet applies due to the occupation and thus such C.S.A. Registered Citizens may individually vote in U. S. and U. S. Satellite State elections.
So long as a peace treaty between the Confederate States of America and the Federal Union (United States of America) recognized by the UNITED STATES, INC. has not been signed and thus occupation and reconstruction still apply, the governments of the Confederate States and the Citizens thereof are obliged to obey the laws of the occupying nation.
No new treaty between the Confederate States of America and any foreign government other than the occupying nation (Federal Union or the United States of America) may legally be concluded, but the subjects of the occupation living in the South, whether or not they are C.S.A. Registered Citizens, may avail themselves legally to the laws and supposed rights and protections of the U. S. Constitution.
Meanwhile and prior to a negotiated peace treaty and termination of occupation, the C.S.A. Registered Citizens are admonished to avoid any form of military hostility against the Federal Union or the satellite states thereof. We pray that the Lord will bless His people if we are worthy and that He will shield the innocent from harm as in the Lord’s prayer.
In the Service of Almighty God,
The Confederate Council
