    The Aztec Dream

    I just wanna preface this beforehand, this is my first post and I'm no professional. My research and what I say here isn't gonna be perfect, but I would appreciate some criticism on anything that seems implausible or downright wrong. That's all, now history. On August 13th, 1521 the Aztec...

    On July 4, 1776, a document was adopted by 56 delegates of the Second Continental Congress, who were convened at the Pennsylvania State House (renamed Independence Hall), known as the Declaration of Independence.

  3. Effect of a Confederate victory of the Louisiana Creole population?

    The Louisiana Creole are certainly a very interesting ethnic group, originating in Louisiana in the Americas as freed offspring of white European space owners and their female African and African American slaves. Despite this fact of their brutal origins, many Louisiana Creoles and Louisiana...

    Hello everybody! This is one of my first timelines that I am making (excluding some certain attempts in the past.) This TL is gonna be about the US of A. However, I'm not going to spoil anything about this TL. As I don't want to promise much, I'll say that I'll post probably every few days...
  5. Timeline 4513

    On April 14th 1912, the RMS titanic sank on it's maiden voyage. Down with it, went 3 prominent opponents of the creation of the US Federal Reserve System, Isador Strauss, Ben Guggenheim, and John Astor, but what if they survived and the US Federal Reserve system never was created? Now I...

  9. More Roman U.S Government

    Revisiting a past idea I had floated , I am intrigued by just how "Roman" the founders of the u.s tried to make it . What if the Founders had gone in fully wit their Roman fanfare and also paranoia of centralised authority, and adopted a more decentralised system. Here's my timeline: The...

    Development of the US with more colonies joining the revolution

    I've been learning more about the American revolution and the reasons why 13 colonies chose to form the United States, and why some other colonies chose not to join this new union. This made me ponder who the United States would develop if other colonies such as Nova Scotia or the Floridas...
  12. What if Maryland was founded in New England?

    Reading into the history of Maryland, I find the original purpose of the colony quite interesting, as it was meant to be a haven for Catholics and religious toleration. In OTL this did not last long and the colony was quickly overtaken by various protestant groups. This I believe was in part due...
  13. America TLs and "Canon Events"?

    It feels like there are many patterns that seem to repeat infinitely among America timelines. Events that occur or have their analogues in most timelines concerning the United States. Absences of such an event rarely occurs unless said absence is the divergence. I am also guilty of this...
  14. Divided States and Franco Prussian Shenanigans

    Was working on a simple alt hist idea with a friend and am new to this sort of thing and wanted to see if there was any interesting ideas here. Main points of divergence are: 1. The Articles of Confederation fail. There are two many differences between the states and they simply can't...

    WI: Revanchist Britain towards America- What if Britain actively sought to reconquer America?

    As we know, USA and British relations got off on a rocky start. After independence, America still had heavy ties to Britain. But during the War of 1812, Britain and America fought one another for Canada. A common misconception I’ve seen some people say, is that Britain intended to reconquer...

    American and Canadian pop culture in a TL where crime dramas flop and other changes

    I'm curious what the television and film landscapes in America and Canada would look like with some big changes. What would happen to TV if for some reason, crime dramas/police shows massively flopped after the 60s? Also, what would happen if anime and tokusatsu was somewhat more popular than...
  18. AHC: Give as many countries as possible American style urban sprawl

    This is inspired by google earth, which I have found provide a fascinating insight into other countries. The challenge here is to give as many countries as possible the same “format” that the United States and to a lesser extent Canada, Australia, and New Zealand have in their urbanized areas...
  19. WI: Portugal became the dominant Kingdom in the Iberian peninsula around the XIII Century

    Let's suppose Portugal manages to enter a personal union with Leon instead of what happened in OTL. I won't discuss how plausible this scenario is. I'm more curious to know about what would happen specifically during the Age of Discovery and the colonization of America. Here is a map to what I...
