A Southern Victory: An Alternate History trilogy

Set in an alternative version of American History, where the south
wins the civil war, the three plays follow Thomas Williams, a young
confederate student as he attends Harvard in 1922. We follow Thomas as
he makes his way in a new country, and slowly gets sucked into the
terrorist underground of the abolitionist movement. In this world,
escaped slaves mix with flappers in northern speakeasies, Confederate
and German agents make an alliance to thwart The League of Nations,
and abolitionists sell bootlegged hooch to fund their underground war.

The fringe elements of the abolitionist movement have adopted the
tactic of suicide bombing. Young men from the north are going into the
south, blowing themselves up in debutante balls, on streetcars, and in
picture houses. Panic grips most confederate cities and some wonder if
a new war between the states is soon at hand. As Thomas questions
everything he has held dear, we watch as he becoming a traitor to his
country and a martyr to the cause of freedom.
