  1. Decades of Darkness

    If I remember correctly, Sanford Dole, the first territorial governor of Hawaii, was born sometime in the 1840s to missionaries - missionaries formerly from Massachusetts. It was his cousin, James, who later moved from Massachusetts to Hawaii who developed (and did not introduce) the pineapple...
  2. Settling Acounts: Drive to the east

    Not to mention, out of the original 13, Georgia, Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania (although Penn is now an honorary American), New Jersey, and New Hampshire.
  3. You might be a yankee if...

    That'd be "Comm Ave" to almost all Bostonians.
  4. Name the 5 most influential people of an ATL.

    From the LBTL: “50 Most Influential Americans of the 20th Century” Otis [Los Angeles], California, USA (c) 2000: The United States Broadcasting Corporation Political Leaders: 10. John Joseph Pershing (Restored the traditional powers to the Presidency and began the economic...
  5. Fatherland questions

    He wasn't. If I recall correctly, he was mentioned as being the then-current ambassador to Germany.
  6. New England Goes it Alone

    AH Challenge: With a point of divergence no earlier than the February 11, 1763, create a situation in which the New England colonies (incl. Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont [although, at the time, it wasn't technically a "colony"], and New Hampshire) and/or New York/New...
  7. Lincoln gets three terms

    That depends on your definition of the "North." If, by the "North," you mean those that voted for Lincoln in 1860, then that's about right, however, if you mean the states composing the United States of America in 1864, that's not true. Missouri, Kentucky, Maryland, West Virginia, and...
  8. Lincoln gets three terms

    Since I started this whole controversy unintentionally, I believe I should take this opportunity to end it. I was referring to the majority of the voting population. (i.e. the white population of the South, plus those who voted for McClellan equals well over half of the voting population, those...
  9. Lincoln gets three terms

    First of all, you're exaggerating. Slaves were hardly ever murdered, as that would simply be a waste of money, to put it coldly. I don't believe Robert is trying to state that the South was Disneyland before the Civil War, but, rather, that the pre-war free blacks were treated generally better...
  10. Lincoln gets three terms

    First of all, no one that I know of has ever suggested that the world would be "wonderful" had the Confederacy beaten the North. While some TL's portray the CSA as decent, it has never been portrayed as wonderful. Second, a world where the CSA is simply more interesting (not better) than a world...
  11. Lincoln gets three terms

    This would be completely infeasible. This would not just spark decades of insurgent warfare in the South, but it would find no support among northern whites, either. This plan, well, it just makes no sense. Very poetic.
  12. A Loose Bandage - McKinley Lives!

    The war in Italy is, by necessity, much more defensive in nature than in OTL (i.e. the Austrians are on the defensive). With help from the Germans, they are able to hold back the tide on their 1917 border and, since they do not overextend themselves with any offensive, they are never decisively...
  13. A Loose Bandage - McKinley Lives!

    The idea of a Czechoslovak Union goes back to the late 1800s, before the Treaty of Versailles. Indeed, the nation was founded in October of 1918, when the Austro-Hungarian Empire collapsed. And I wouldn't exactly call it an "explosion." There are only 3 new states in Central and Eastern Europe...
  14. A Loose Bandage - McKinley Lives!

    I'll briefly explain, but the majority will have to wait until I can finally gather all my thoughts onto paper (or computer). Anyways, the trigger for TTL's First World War (a.k.a. the First Global War, not really the most imaginative of names, but that doesn't really matter) is the death of...
  15. A Loose Bandage - McKinley Lives!

    Could you name these problems? (As I imagine it's going to be awhile before the whole plot is revealed and if there are, indeed, serious problems, I would like to know about them.) If I cannot adequately explain the reason behind the problem, I'd like the opportunity to rework the war before I...
  16. A Loose Bandage - McKinley Lives!

    This is Europe at the end of the First Global War (1917-1920).
  17. A Loose Bandage - McKinley Lives!

    Thanks, but I'm looking for the specific plans themselves. Such as: War Plan Red.
  18. A Loose Bandage - McKinley Lives!

    Does anyone know of a website where one can read the Color-Coded War Plans of the United States Army from the '20s and '30s? (Preferably not Red or Orange, which I already have). Thank you.
  19. AH Challenge: Russo-Japanese war lasts longer

    The Japanese economy was damn close to collapse by the end of the war in OTL. Had it continued any longer, it would have collapsed, thus knocking the Japanese out of the war.
  20. A Loose Bandage - McKinley Lives!

    I seem to be struggling from a severe case of ADD in terms of getting this thing done. Anyways, as an update, here's the list of Presidents (and First Secretaries) that I'm currently toying with...
