  1. Independent Quebec - How large/expansive can it get?

    So between 1760 and 1867 the British controlled all of Quebec/Canada/French Regions of North America that were mor or less a loos confederation of territory. So in that timeline, depending on the Revolutionay War, War or 1812, and even the Upper/Lower Canada and eventually Canadaian Federation...
  2. John Tyler, Henry Caly and Texas scenario

    John Tyler is well known as the man who pushed through Texas annexation and James Polk definitely certified it at the beginning of his administration. ANd Henry Clay himself seemed to flip-flop between being pro/anti-anexxation. Given that Clay and Tyler really did not like each other, is it...
  3. Can the United States win if it fights the British and Mexicans at the same time?

    In the mid-to-late 1840s the United States expanded and gained territory in Texas, Oregon Country and the Mexican Cessation, gaining at least a Third, if not half of the known United States today. Polk at the time was able to secure Texas (even though it was annexed by John Tyler), and also...
  4. WI:John WIlkes Booth accidentally kills Mary Todd Lincoln...

    SO, suppose that John Wilkes Booth slips somehow and accidentally shoots/kills Mary Todd Lincoln, and Booth, whether or not he he is captured or not at the theatre.., ...how does a surviving Lincoln, but a grief-stricken one, continue on with his policy of reunifying of the United States...
  5. TL-191: Plausibile/Possible Complete Confederate Occupation after First Great War.

    In How Few Remain, and the aftermath of the Second Mexican War, Theodore Roosevelt states that if elected President he "would never lose a war against the Confederate States". So suppose we dial this up to eleven with all the Revanchism and say that not only did Theodore Roosevelt and the United...
  6. President John C Calhoun 1825. Who is elected in 1828?

    The US election of 1824 is rather infamous for its corrupt bargain between John Quincy Adams and Henry Clay and its snubbing of Andrew Jackson, all because all three pcandidates did not want to be playing "second fiddle" as it were to each other. Supposing that the deadlock of the 1824 election...
  7. Plausibility/ACH: Fascist Spain and Nazi Germany switch fates.

    Obviously not too sure if it possible, but still an interesting idea to analyze. Anyway, what I am suggesting is if it possible for Franco to take Spain down a hardliner Nazi path similar to OTL Nazi Germany, and for Hitler and Nazi Germany to take the more Spanish Franco route - as in Hitler...
  8. WI/AHC: President John C Fremont, with Abraham Lincoln's Civil War legacy...

    Historically, John C Fremont lost in the election of 1856, whereas Abraham Lincoln won in 1860. So with a little bit of a push, Fremont wins the Republican nomination in 1860 and eventually the election. Now given that Fremont was a lot more liberal and radical in his approach to slavery, and...
  9. Andrew Jackson goes to Texas...

    Ok, so Andrew Jackson is rather well known - at least on a technicallity - of bringing/securing both Florida and Louisiana into the Union. But is it possible for him to bring in Texas in the same way? During the Monroe Administration Jackson was criticized rather heavily for his role in...
  10. Post War of 1812: A British/Canadian Michigan

    General Hull surrendered Detroit, and hence most of Michigan territory to General Brock and his British army in August of 1812 William Henry Harrison and Oliver Hazard Perry later recaptured the territory, I would guess that if Captain Perry's naval flotilla is defeated in the Great Lakes and...
  11. United States Election of 1800 question...

    So, IIRC, to get Adams elected you just have to flip Pennsylvania, or maybe Somehow flip South Carolina, but I am more curious, if Adams does win re-election, then does Jefferson become his Vice-President again, or does it go to Pinckney or Burr?
  12. US Election of 1816: If no James Monroe, then who becomes President?

    For the sake of convenience, say that James Monroe died during the war of 1812 when he performed that rearguard action, therefore ensuring that he would not be able to be elected in 1816, who exactly would be the nominee/nominees for the Presidency in his place. Andrew Jackson is a...
  13. Alternate First World War: Russo-German Alliance???

    So, I have just been thinking of it recently, but how plausible would a Russo-German alliance be? I was looking at the idea that Germany wants control of control the Grossdeutchland landmass/region, whereas Russia wants a lot of the Balkans and even some of the Turkish regions. I thought maybe...
  14. How does Gerttysburg change is Pickett is at Gettysburg on July 2?

    So, watching Gettysburg, i was just up to the part where John Bell Hood begins his attack, and having watched the Confederate staff meeting before where Longstreet says he does not have Pickett, how much would this battle change, if at all, if Pickett was there with the army when the battle began???
  15. Abraham Lincoln and Jefferson Davis switch places.....

    What exactly would happen if we were to swap the careers of Jefferson Davis and Abraham Lincoln??? To clarify. Their careers remain rather similar as per OTL. Lincoln going into Law then politics, and Davis going into West Point and then politics. But the difference is that Lincoln is the...
  16. A US Invasion Normandy/Gallipoli style landing

    Before some people cry ASB about a succesful invasion of the United States from across either the Pacific or Atlantic, never mind the US navy:rolleyes: - this is just a hypothetical scenario. Where exactly would be the best place to land if you were going to invade the United States. Which...
  17. George II dies before Coronation, Frederick becomes King?

    When George I died in 1727, George II became King of England/Britain. Obviously if OTL George II died before his coronation, he would just be remembered as George, Prince of Wales. Therefore the young Frederick becomes King upon both the death of his grandfather and pre-deceased father...
  18. Can Quebec/Canada be conquered in the War of Austrian Succession?

    Although the War in North America (King George's War)was rather small compared to the main theater in Europe (Austrian Succession), they still managed to capture the Fortress of Louisberg, which was a considerable loss to the French, yet still returned later. Is it possible for the...
  19. Election of 1824 Question: Does no Jackson mean Clay wins?

    My understanding is that Quincy Adams barely had any support outside of the NorthEastern state, whereas Clay seemed to be supported by many people outside of that region. If Andrew Jackson refuses to stand for 1824 in any way, does this mean that Clay sweeps the entire West and South, thereby...
  20. Stonewall Jackso at Gettysburg: Jackson's Charge instead of Pickett's Charge?????

    In order to have Stonewall Jackson at Gettysburg, we have to practically assume that there is no accidental shooting of Jackson, and also assume that there are other significant butterflies between May and July 1863. The question i am asking is whether or not Stonewall Jackson, on the third...
