  1. And Then Came Spoons: A Benjamin Butler Presidency

    Really great and interesting stuff. I would suggest modifying the title a little to more clearly explain the TL (And Then Came Spoons: ...) as more people will read it then.
  2. Thank you! I will give it a look.

    Thank you! I will give it a look.
  3. British involvement in US Civil War

    I can't see it happening. Britain may not have hated the United States enough to support the Confederacy outright, but certainly they didn't like them enough to waste their own resources helping to put down the South either. A World on Fire: Britain's Crucial Role in the American Civil War by...
  4. Ghastly Victories: The United States in the World Wars

    Just discovered and read this all in one go. Really excellent and interesting. Can't wait to see where you're planning to take this.

    Threadmarks: Tokugawa Consolidation pt. 1

    Since the sixteenth century, the Tokugawa Shoguns had been at the top of a feudal power structure and the effective rulers of the Japanese archipelago. The daimyos, the local magnates and feudal lords, exercised power in their local domains on the Shogun’s behalf. The Emperor and the imperial...

    Threadmarks: Map of North America, 1870

    North America after the formation of Canada, 1870 Some notes on previous two chapters: NYC really did see a pretty bad sectarian riot in 1870, but ITTL things are much worse. There were no Draft Riots in 1863 due to the lack of Irish "off the boats" for the previous 2 years and an increased...

    Threadmarks: And Further North

    Across the northern border of the United States in the late 1860s were the disparate colonies and possessions of British North America. Upon the outbreak of war with the United States in 1861, all of these colonies had been suddenly thrust onto the frontlines of the conflict. While with British...
  8. Made a Nation: America and the World after an alt-Trent Affair

    I've basically finished the next bit about Canada, and I'll post that soon. After that I'll take a short break from writing this. Britain's diplomatic situation is perhaps not as bad as it appears here. None of three great powers of the League are set against Britain, in fact rather the...

    Threadmarks: Back Up North

    Anson Burlingame, 19th President of the United States The US presidential election of 1860 was a revolution, whereas the 1864 election was a counter-revolution. The election of 1868, on the other hand, was a miracle. Anson Burlingame had pulled off a Republican victory that had seemed...
  10. Made a Nation: America and the World after an alt-Trent Affair

    I don't think I've ever seen a TL with a long-lasting Napoleon III either. For the time being, there's no imminent danger to the Bonapartes without an equivalent to the Franco-Prussian War. However, even without that there was a republican opposition in France so things may change in the...

    Threadmarks: A New Order in Europe

    The 1860s and 70s were a time of great change. National identities were in flux, many people and regions having conflicting loyalties which pulled them towards different forms of nationalism, regionalism and political ideology. This was just as true in Europe as it was in North America. In...
  12. Made a Nation: America and the World after an alt-Trent Affair

    Thank you for your interesting and detailed response. I think your take is a highly plausible series of events both for Lee's somewhat less illustrious career and for events in Kentucky and West Virginia. I'm tempted to go back to the first update an add a few extra paragraphs to flesh out the...

    Threadmarks: Introduction pt. 3

    The independence of the slaveholding Confederate States not only created a large new nation in North America, but also represented one of those moments where the perceived direction of history fundamentally shifts. Over the preceding decades, both the wide-ranging opponents of slavery and the...
  14. Made a Nation: America and the World after an alt-Trent Affair

    @Rivercat893 @The Gunslinger - I've went back and modified the peace settlement somewhat. Kentucky has been shifted over into the Confederacy and the Webster-Ashburton cession has been reversed as small and relatively symbolic territorial concession to Britain. The truth is I'm not fully sure...
  15. Made a Nation: America and the World after an alt-Trent Affair

    I think @The Gunslinger described exactly my thoughts regarding Missouri. Regarding Kentucky, I was tempted to put on the Confederate side but my reasoning for not doing so is this: I envisioned the Union still controlling most of West Virginia at the time of the armistice, and that the...
  16. Made a Nation: America and the World after an alt-Trent Affair

    I'm going to try and avoid some of the cliché presidential elections in these scenarios, although that will likely be harder for the Confederate Presidents. Honestly, I was originally going to just steal @EnglishCanuck 's POD (forgive me, I'm a fan of your wonderful TL!) but my research...

    Clement L. Vallandigham, 18th President of the United States The inauguration of Clement Vallandigham of Ohio as President of the United States initiated a new era of American history. He was inaugurated in Philadelphia rather than Washington D.C. due to the continued occupation of that...

    Made a Nation: America and the World after an alt-Trent Affair “We may have our own opinions about slavery; we may be for or against the South, but there is no doubt that Jefferson Davis and the other leaders of the South have made an army; they are making, it appears, a navy; and they have...
