Added DiffLines:

* ExpandedStatesOfAmerica: Expanded ''Confederate'' states that is. The CSA acquires Kentucky and Indian Territory (later Sequoia) from the United States, purchases Cuba from Spain, and later buys Sonora and Chihuahua from Mexico. This latter actions prompts the U.S. president to declare another war.


Added DiffLines:

* NonindicativeName: The Second Mexican War does not actually involve Mexico at all.

* BadAss: Custer and Roosevelt live their lives doing this. The rest of the main cast have their own, in their own ways.
** Lincoln and Douglass are both [[RetiredBadAss retired badasses]], who are really getting too old for this, but that doesn't stop either of them for a minute.

* ForWantOfANail: The novel--and [[{{Timeline-191}} the ten-novel series that follows it]]--is all happening because ''one'' tiny detail, the finding of Order 191. Which could ''so'' very easily have happened in this universe. And if it did, it would have (if not necessarily guaranteed a Confederate victory) given Lee an incredible strategic advantage which might well have changed the course of the war.

''How Few Remain'' is Creator/HarryTurtledove's excellent beginning to his Southern Victory (AKA "{{Timeline-191}}") series. It takes place in a universe where General Robert E. Lee's Special Order 191 was never discovered by Union troops, thus dramatically changing the course of history.

For those of you who aren't [[UsefulNotes/TheAmericanCivilWar US Civil War]] [[AsYouKnow 'buffs']], as they are apparently known in the USA, Order 191 contained extensive information about the rebel General Lee's proposed troop movements during his famous offensive campaign to take the US's capital. Because George [=McClellan=] had this information, he was able to position his troops in areas to ambush them. The Battle of Antietam was the bloodiest battle of the Civil War, and--both morally and mortally--diminished the Confederates. It was perhaps the most vital turning point in the entire war.

* AntebellumAmerica: Unlike [[Film/CSATheConfederateStatesOfAmerica some attempts]] to show what the world would be like if the Confederates won, ''How Few Remain'' actually explores socio-economic and cultural issues that ''don't'' have to do with slavery.
