Misplaced Flags in Info Box[edit]

In the info box the then-flag of NC is used for TN and vice versa. Please fix that --81.186.244.171 (talk) 03:36, 6 April 2017 (UTC)

  • Solved. The numbers were mixed up, thanks for noticing. ...GELongstreet (talk) 12:15, 6 April 2017 (UTC)

Article quality[edit]

It's a shame that such an important and potentially useful article is in such a poor state. Is anyone interested in trying to improve it? --John (talk) 18:00, 27 April 2017 (UTC)

Map in infobox[edit]

Is there a clearer map that could go in the infobox? Shewing almost the whole of the Americas to illustrate a part of the USA seems a little disproportionate to me. DuncanHill (talk) 18:20, 27 April 2017 (UTC)

Yes, I noticed that. It's unhelpful to readers. --John (talk) 18:22, 27 April 2017 (UTC)
Agreed. At the moment there is no "map". There's an animated map of development over time, which is really unhelpful if you want to see which states were in and not and there's the infobox map which is not very easy to use. Francis Davey (talk) 08:53, 20 August 2017 (UTC)

There's some maps at the WikiMedia Commons category "Maps of the Confederate States of America". I think a non-animated map is best. This one would be good, I think, if it showed the name of Mississippi, which is somehow missing, and didn't have a caption about Tennessee. I like how it shows both the Confederate and Union states. Can someone create an improved version of this map, or create a new, similar one? Mudwater (Talk) 13:10, 20 August 2017 (UTC)
