    What would a war between America and Japan in the 1850s look like?

    This is just some theorizing on my part. Not too sure how it would get to this point, maybe the shogunate decides to fight the US when they return or something, but say that a war does break out between the US and Japan back in the 1850s? How would it play out and what would the ramifications be?

  9. How big of a power boost is Canada to the United States?

    Let's assume that through some unspecified set of circumstances the US gains the entirety of Canada (Quebec and all) during the Revolutionary War. How much of a boon are Canada's land, resources, and population to the US? Are there any ways in which this acquisition could be detrimental?
