There were sixteen at the time of the war - but the wording also opened up the possibility of deputies who had been appointed by Congress. Frankly the whole "no one wants to be President" part of the timeline was just way way too convenient a way to break up the US - and considering how CivGov came into being I could see any actual military command structure saying no way am I turning power over to a govt that was stretching being a legal one past the breaking point
