Interesting DVDs you should see: CSA

Supposing the South won?

Supposing the South won?

“CSA: The Confederate States of America“, produced by Spike Lee, is a mockumentary based on the premise that the South won the American Civil War. It is portrayed as a British television series of the alternate timeline, and straddles both the ridiculousness and the frightening aspects of that possible historical outcome.

What is particularly interesting is that the film is peppered with advertisement breaks for shockingly offensive products, many of which actually were on sale in the US right up until the 1960s.

An interesting distraction, especially for alternate history buffs. Keep an eye out for the scene where a defeated Abraham Lincoln attempts to flee to Canada in blackface!
