The majority of Confederate alternative history is flawed and misleading.  Alternative history on any period requires a good understanding of the period.  For example CNN & their hateful Mr. Roland Martin projected the commonly ignorant assumption that had the Confederacy won the War against the States slavery would still exist.
However the most likely outcome of 6% slaveocracy minority in the South should be based on historical events and characters.  Consider:

*By 1865 more than 90,000 blacks were serving in the Confederate military as freemen. 
*The unpopularity of slavery influencing the Confederacy's diplomatic and economic relations with nations that Southern state markets relied on (ie, UK, France, & if the Confederacy was victorious the U.S.)
*The role and security of slavery in the South was forever broken (one way or another).
*Citizens, officers, and soldiers in the Confederacy like Jefferson Davis, his cabinet, Lee, and Johnston expressed that slavery would be a necessary loss for victory.
*The majority of Southerners from the period rejected slavery as a cause (though the abolition of it was 1 Federal measure to restructure the South by force)
*The Confederate States rejected the deal that would achieve a slavery amendment (the original 13th) if they reunited peacefully with Lincoln.
*The Confederate States rejected the deal in the Emancipation Proclamation which offered that any territory not in rebellion by Jan 1, 1863 slavery would not be intefered with. 
*The Confederate States Constitution forbade the international slave trade.
*Every nation in the Western Hemisphere with 1 exception abolished slavery peacefully.
*The industrial revolution which influenced all parts of the globe made crop harvesting more profitable by machine than man. 
*The widely changing views towards human bondage in the 20th century would surely have affected the Confederacy as it did with the majorities in the majority of civilized nations.

Slavery ends in the 1880's.

I'd think a bit later: precisely, because a war would have been fought over it.  But it would be gone by the end of WWI. Of course, it would be replaced by pretty much apartheid. I strongly doubt, blacks would have gotten citizenship till well past WWII, if ever.
