Confederate Diplomacy with Europe

Student Jennifer Gillis
Faculty Mentor(s) Dr. Daniel Margolies
Department History
Course HIST 360


My project focuses on the diplomatic relations that the Confederacy had with European countries over cotton in order to achieve recognition as an independent nation. I came upon this topic through past American History classes and my interest of Southern culture. I have learned about the different policies and actions the Confederacy enacted in order to become independent. When I was conducting my research, I found that it is all about patience and just being able to bury yourself in books and documents.
