    AHC Challenge: How could you make a timeline where the United States of America (completely) abandons its founding ideals? (No, I don't mean completely falling apart.

  4. AHC: Largest possibile Native American US population by 1900

    As asked in the title, the challenge is to come up with an alt-US (Roughly with OTL's borders) that has the largest possible Native American population. I was thinking that an earlier smallpox vaccine could be useful, but, considering it more slowly, I don't want a POD too early on to...

    WI :- SR-71 shot down

    Say SR-71s violate USSR airspace here and there throughout the 70s and 80s and in 1987 one is shot down using R-33 missiles fired from a MiG-31 over Kamchatka and the pilots are captured.

    AHC: Have the US have a majority native population

    The hard part here is getting the natives powerful and populous enough to remain in the majority despite the diseases and depopulation, not getting swamped by European settlers, while still being weak enough that a nation descended from those same European settlers can form, at least on the East...
