Erwin Rommel. The Desert Fox himself. The man singlehandedly responsible for the victory of the Confederacy in the American Civil War. With the secession of the Confederate States, Erwin Rommel was given command of the Confederate Army along with another, General Robert E. Lee. Together with Toussiant L'Overture and Peter Stuyvesant, they formed the greatest alliance of military geniuses ever brought together under one flag. The Civil War was an easy victory for the Confederacy. Under President Jefferson Davis, they rose to power. However, in 1864, Davis was assassinated by a crazed Northerner named Thomas A. Bailey. The nation mourned the loss of its president. Bailey was tried and then executed by the once used method of being shot by everyone that lived within a ten mile radius of Richmond with a bb gun.
