Confederate States Congress 

                          "Reseating of our Government"
.
The figures given on this page are estimates as to Confederate States Population based upon the 2010 Population Census!  While not precise they are likely close enough so as to give a very good picture concerning the eventual make up of the Third Confederate States Congress. The issue naturally returns to that of Confederate States Citizenship! There have been several organizations in recent decades which have used the name ‘Confederate States of America’ as their title, each of these have laid claim to being ’The Confederate States Government.’ A reading of the Confederate States Constitution makes it clear, it is ’We the People’ not they the organizations which will make the determination as to who shall hold seats in the Confederate States Government and this by national elections arranged for that purpose.
.
There is therefore no insult or criticism intended against anyone in stating boldly that no organization holds the legal or constitutional authority to determine Confederate States Citizenship. These issues are critical indeed, but will be taken care of in due course of time, in accordance with the provisions laid down in the Confederate States Constitution. There should be a very serious reluctance by all individuals to make application and payment to any organization in exchange for Confederate States Citizenship.  When the critical hour comes you will discover they will never be recognized as anything more then rendering honors and dues to a private entity.

  The following two States should be invited to join after the reseating!
.
Arizona                                           6,412,700
  New Mexico                                     2,067,273 . 

.
Maryland having never seceded would need to do so!
  .

Maryland                                        5,789,929
  .
West Virginia is a special case, as explained below!
  .
West Virginia                                  1,859,815
.

Constitutionally, West Virginia is still attached to greater Virginia, if properly done, these area first needs to secede from Virginia.  Then if the Virginia State Government approves, West Virginia may then apply for secession from the Confederate States of America, after liberation.  Otherwise it would constitutionally remain a part of greater Virginia!  West Virginia’s status derives from their having not followed Union constitutional mandate, when it broke away from greater Virginia in 1861.  The outbreak of war, reconstruction, and the intervening period of time since, did not alter the Yankee Constitution in this re guard.
.

However such issues would need to be dealt with only after the liberation and the reseating of the Confederate States Government.  Additionally, Arizona was a territory of the Confederacy during the war, which takes in the northern half of what is today both Arizona and New Mexico.  The State of Maryland is listed here, in as much as there is a slight chance, however slight that chance might be, the State would secede and join the Confederacy at the time of the liberation.  However, the Union Capital would be located inside the Confederacy, requiring them to move elsewhere!

Totals population  {13 States}: 111,910,059
