  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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
  16. Until Every Drop of Blood Is Paid: A More Radical American Civil War

    So I finished this university's semester, passing all my classes, and have solved one of the personal issues that had me preocuppied the other month. So I was finally able to write this update! I hope you all enjoy it and sorry for this great delay. Next update is about Reconstruction in the...

    Threadmarks: Chapter 42: And Down with the Power of the Despot!

    Though the failure to defeat the rebels at Mine Run and Dalton prevented the Union from bringing the war to a close in the later half of 1863, these battles could hardly dim the glory of the “great trinity” of victories: Lexington, Liberty and Union Mills. Thanks to them, the Lincoln...

    I've got nothing to add about Mexico. I appreciate everyone's contributions and will come back to this part of the discussion in the future when I decide what to do. For now, I'll focus on the US. Wow, I really need a beta reader! Thank you for catching that. I'm going to correct it immediately.
  19. Until Every Drop of Blood Is Paid: A More Radical American Civil War

    I kind of want to make Max win or do something to improve Mexico's situation, both out of a love for a fellow Latin American nation but also just because it'd be interesting. I haven't talked much about Mexico because I am not sure how realistic these aims are, or even what my exact aims are...
  20. Until Every Drop of Blood Is Paid: A More Radical American Civil War

    I've always believed that more awareness and visibility of the Native American genocide and American imperialism is necessary. I welcome discussions about the topic, though it's right that nothing in the TL points to a better situation than OTL. Indeed, it may be worse if Native Americans are...
