Despite Abraham Lincoln's best efforts, the majority of the U.S. Senate votes against the passing of the 13th Amendment to the Constitution.
After the 13th Amendment fails, Pro-Slavery Northerners begin secretly supplying funding and weapons to General Grant. This boosts Southern morale and Northern African American soldiers are captured by Confederate soldiers, re-enslaved, and forced into recruitment.
After over five months of fighting, the Union concedes defeat, and Confederate President Jefferson Davis’ confidence boost results in a successful attempt to take control of Washington.
16 days after taking over the Union, former Confederate President Jefferson Davis is sworn into office for his first term as the 17th President of the United States. As there is no time for anyone to run against him, he has no opposition, guaranteeing his election.
President Davis has July 5 declared a national holiday, Confederate Validation Day.
The Battle Hymn of the Republic replaces the Star-Spangled Banner as the National Anthem.
Across the nation, Pro-Slavery Americans celebrate Confederate Validation Day.

While visiting Ireland for a diplomatic meeting, President Davis meets a young woman named Elizabeth MacNeill, who tells him about an upcoming holiday, All Hallows' Eve. President Davis takes an interest not only in "Halloween" but also in Ms. MacNeill.

After returning to America with President Davis, Vice President Alexander Stephens leaks a rumor of a possible affair, based on his suspicions that President Davis had an unchecked woman on board.
