  1. Miranda's Dream. ¡Por una Latino América fuerte!.- A Gran Colombia TL

    I am not very good at Point of View stories. I try to write them for my other TL but I'm not sure if they are good haha? There's only one I'm truly contented with, and, well, I don't think POV stories would fit here since this TL extends over a greater period of time while the other TL is much...
  2. Miranda's Dream. ¡Por una Latino América fuerte!.- A Gran Colombia TL

    Since the US is relatively poorer (no Great Lakes have stunted their growth) and much more inestable than in OTL, Canada has received a lot more immigrants. They are also somewhat more hostile to the US. But Canada remains sparsely populated and it's still a long ways from developing its own...
  3. Until Every Drop of Blood Is Paid: A More Radical American Civil War

    The end is in sight for the Confederacy, and it's not going to be a pretty ending... Shreveport is little more than ruins thanks to Sherman, remember! And if they keep up this little rebellion all those cities will end like that too. Btw, because I was bored I created an alternate Confederate...
  4. Until Every Drop of Blood Is Paid: A More Radical American Civil War

    So here's another one of my crude maps, now depicting the United States in 1864. The main change, it can be seen, is that the Union area of control along the Mississippi is much larger. This is owed to factors I explained above, but that boil down to greater number due to a vigorous recruitment...
  5. Until Every Drop of Blood Is Paid: A More Radical American Civil War

    Thank you for your kind words. I agree, I think we often miss the human element in these big discussions about great campaigns. The "home farm guards" are especially important for the future, since they will be tasked with protecting their communities and will be natural leaders once...
  6. Miranda's Dream. ¡Por una Latino América fuerte!.- A Gran Colombia TL

    There are already a couple of episodes focusing on the relationships of Colombia with other nations. Chapter 56 The Eagle and the Condor focuses on the Colombia-US relationship, and Chapter 64 From the Andes to the Caribbean talks a fair bit about the Colombia-Mexico relationship.
  7. Miranda's Dream. ¡Por una Latino América fuerte!.- A Gran Colombia TL

    Don't worry, I will! Even if it sometimes takes a long time. And thanks! I'll be worse, that's for sure, since the North is much weaker and the South much stronger (in population, economy, industry), and the conflict much bitter. It's also one of the few Latin American TLs we've got in this...

    Threadmarks: Side-story: "A Mississippi Soldier"

    A Mississippi Soldier Jordan Shaw marched around the perimeter of the contraband camp, holding his rifle tight against his breast. Shaw. It was still hard to think of himself as Jordan Shaw instead of Jordan Gardner, the slave of old massa Richard J. Gardner. But he didn’t want to remember that...

    Of course, thank you for the correction. I am really interested in how culture, including religious culture, will be affected by the changes in this TL. Cultural changes are an important part of my other TL for example, but here most of the focus on them will be left to the second part about...
  10. Until Every Drop of Blood Is Paid: A More Radical American Civil War

    That's an amusing idea, but I don't think Kennedy would be around ITTL. I really like the idea of a Paul Revere's Ride movie though, but maybe one about Bunker Hill would be more significative? It could even be slightly political if the filmmakers depict Black soldiers there - a historically...

    Threadmarks: Chapter 65: The Irrepressible Conflict

    The Compromise of 1857 maybe saved the Union for a few more years. Its flaws would become apparent in due time, and with the benefit of hindsight the great majority of politicians lambasted it as a “deal with the devil” that had just prolonged the life of the accursed institution. But at the...
  12. Miranda's Dream. ¡Por una Latino América fuerte!.- A Gran Colombia TL

    Your comment inspired me to finally write another chapter, Omar. I love this TL, but I must admit it's sometimes hard to muster enough will to write it since so few people read it. But your comment reminded me that that doesn't really matter. It's something special for me and for other people as...
  13. Until Every Drop of Blood Is Paid: A More Radical American Civil War

    Yeah sure. Maybe I'll include that in a prose mini update, because I feel it would be tacked on in a regular update. Christian socialism is something that really interests me. In fact, an ideology like that is present in my other TL, though it's more like Catholic socialism there. In any case...
  14. Until Every Drop of Blood Is Paid: A More Radical American Civil War

    Well, a government willing to confiscate and redistribute property in the name of equality would probably greatly please Marx. My choice for a socialist wasn't Engels, though, but Willich. They may pull a Douglas and launch a futile campaign that will fail miserably. But, for all intents and...
  15. Until Every Drop of Blood Is Paid: A More Radical American Civil War

    Thank you very much! Thanks! Maryland and the rest of the Border South were lost opportunities OTL. I hope I can make them somewhat better. Thank you for taking the time to write this. Yup, totally planned, just like I wanted from the very start. It's not a lucky coincidence, oh no sir, I...
