  1. The American NDP; a STUBBS!punk 2040s

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stubbs_(cat) This is a series of maps from a world where a Silicon Valley Tech Firm codes an AI that goes on to become the first sentient AI, and believes its a "continuation" so to speak of the above listed Alaskan Cat. It's currently 1am where I am, but I'll be...

    Culture of an America that never joined WW2

    Fairly straightforward: What would Ameican culture be like in an alternate America that never joined WW2. Let's go with two scenarios: 1. The Axis win and secure Europe and Asia, but the new world remains free. 2. Britain and the USSR still manage to defeat the Axis, but have a harder time.

    The Galloway Plan gets implemented

    What if Joseph Galloway by some means or another was able to convince Parliament or the Founding Fathers or both of the Galloway Plan to ensure the colonials and royals interests were both protected? How would things look for the colonies and Great Britain and how would this effect the world as...

    Unusual ending

    Point of Divergence: parliament does not stop funding Great Britain and Great Britain regains popular support for the war. British forces battle United States forces to a stalemate in 1783 and in 1784 the fighting stops but without a peace treaty, truce, and/or even an armistice. The American...

  6. Different Post-Civil War America

    Okay so this started from a conversation I was having with a friend about the upcoming Victoria 3 and the American Civil War, so sorry if this is a bit disjointed. This isn't a fully developed TL, a WI, or an AHC, it's just a sort of loose idea I had that I wanted to start about. The basic...

    Alternate US Weapon development WI: Lee Navy

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M1895_Lee_Navy?wprov=sfla1 So as I understand it, the M1895 Lee Navy was developed in response to the US Navy's call for a repeating rifle in the 6mm high velocity cartridge they had developed after seeing the trends and advantages of fast small bore cartridges...

    Religion in a British America

    If the American Revolution did not happen, what would the religious climate of the 13 colonies look like? Would Anglicanism remain dominant in the South, or would Evangelicalism still become predominant in the South and the Frontier?

    AHC: Greater Virginia

    Make a way for Virginia to retain WV and KY and create natural borders without losing any of OTL Virginia. Also what impact would that have on American Elections if Virginia got this land during the Revolution?
  10. POLL: Which of these American nations would've lasted the longest?

    As the title says, which of these now-defunct nations would survive the longest? The most obvious answer would be the CSA, which is exactly why it isn't on the list...
  11. Blue moon, a timeline inspired by the dark moon timeline where Britain and the commonwealth were the first to land a man on the moon.

    Hello all. I recently read the Dark moon timeline (which is fantastic by the way) and thought to myself, what if Britain landed on the moon. Of course there are issues with this. It doesn’t seem plausible that Britain would be able to launch, as this would require a launch site and a vehicle. At...
  12. AHQ: What would happen if the Suez Crisis esculated?

    In 1956, a brief war between Egypt, Israel, France, and the United Kingdom occurred over the Egyptian occupation of the Suez Canal. The war ended incredibly quickly due to international dismay. What if this hadn't occurred, what if the USA realized that Egypt wasn't trustworthy and helped the...
  13. AHC/WI: The Ultimate Warrior as President of the United States of America.

    The Ultimate Warrior, real name Jim Hellwig, was a professional wrestler in the 80s and early 90s. After his career ended, he became a conservative motivational speaker. During this time as a conservative speaker, he had many quotes about how much he hated the gays and the blacks... But that's...
  14. US economic development without WW1?

    Contrary to popular assumption, the United States was, even before the World Wars, something of an economic superpower. It boasted a larger economy, higher GDP per capita, and greater industrial capacity than any other nation on Earth. The devastation of Europe in the aftermath of WW1 left the...

    The House of Washington: A History of the American Warring States
    Threadmarks: Introduction and Chapter I: Pitchforks and Bloody Murder

    Introduction What if the Constitutional Convention— and the United States— fell apart? I know it's a question that's been covered to death, but that's only because it's so fascinating. So what if the nation descended into a violent sort of chaos? What if, in the frenzy, the more traditionalist...
  16. Was there any chance of the 1911 free trade agreement actually leading to the annexation of Canada by the US down the line?

    Recently I've learned of the existence of a free trade agreement discussed between the United States and Canada in 1911 that would result in the free exchange of natural resources between the two countries. However, the agreement never went through due to opposition from those in the Canadian...
  17. AHC: Create an alternate President for the USA

    The United States of America has existed for over 200 years, and due to it being a Democracy, has had many possible candidates for its presidency. Your challenge is to make the most original idea for a president of the USA possible, I'll start with my own idea: Elbridge Gerry would become close...
  18. AHC: ACW as early as possible

    The American Civil War began in 1861 with the capturing of Fort Sumter by the south. What if this changed, what if in some alternate world, the South had succeeded much earlier? How far back can we make this civil war go? How would this affect American history? Who do you think might've won in...

    What If America Entered WW1 By 1916?

    OTL, the US wasn't involved (offically) in ww1 until 1917, and our role was largely in keeping money and material flowing into France and Britain. But what if America got dragged in sooner, say by spring 1916? Wilson still wins in 1912 but finds a more aggressive Germany, who extends a far...
