Would the confederates have fared better if they had continued to pay northern owed debts and not confiscated northern property?. Would this have put pressure on Lincoln to accept secession.

Hmmm. Interesting concept.

I do think this was some of the major concern with most southern businessmen who had dealing with northern counterparts. I seem to remember such concerns in a newspaper editorial of the time from the books, Northern Editorials on Southern Secession.

With a naval blockade how would Southern buisness men aquire convertible currency or specie to pay Northern debts?
