I have to offer not much, but what I do is incredibly interesting.
the Confederacy sent a letter to the Papal offices (to the Pope) I can't remember the details of the letter though.
the Pope replied to the Confederacy useing the title President of the Confederacy to the president of the confederacy. ligitamizing the president to the south with the stroke of a pen.
if this was wide-spread knoledge maybe just maybe... military alliances could be made.
as much as nations like England, Spain, and France stayed nuetral within the war, they did make gesters. I can't remember which nation did this but one of the nations still traded within the south. but despite how much the Union threatend their trading goods they never went to full out war (I think it was England)
I think even if the Pope widespred ligitimized the seat of Confederat presidency the civil war would have remained the same outcome. I do not think that any nation would have helped either side. nutrality is always the best relation.
now if circemstances were different and the south did gain assistance from a super-power like France or Spain or England for the matter. the Union would have been overun. and a verry different government would be in place.
