Currently doing a role play on the idea of a southern victory due to British involvement, set around an occupied Union Town.

Basically I’m asking for ideas any of you might think. a large part will be the confederacy forcing slavery in the community, importing southern families to take charge of the land.

Plus, does anyone know of a British cavalry division around the civil war which would have been suitable to join them and assist in occupational duties in the case of such a scenario? one of prestige.

Thanks.

They were organised in regiments, they would only form divisions on deployment of a number of regiments to the theatre.

Tthe British army units earmarked for a war in America included a brigade of lancers.

cavalry duties would be supported by Canadian Militia cavalry.

The British Military Response to the Trent Crisis 1861-2

The above list is just Regiments whose notices and orders are proven. It’s likeky a few more would also be included.

It is likely the units already in Canada would end up in brigades and divisions together. But any larger organisation is speculative.
