  1. WI: George Washington Speaks Out Against Slavery While President

    Okay, so as an American, I have always considered our country's greatest foundational hypocrisy to be slavery. I consider the Native American Genocide to be the greater crime, but slavery is our greatest hypocrisy. Now, I don't want to go into a rant about it, but I don't really feel like I...

    Political Effects of New Brunswick Joining The ARW And Becoming A State?

    Let's say that new Brunswick joins the American revolution. Could be that British taxes are just that little bit worse, or red coat actions shock the people to the point where they send delegates to the continental congress. Now, I'm fully aware that fear of British reprisal was strong and that...
  3. impact of roman/american trade in a " rome discoveries america " scenario

    As the title says, in a scenario in which the Roman Empire (let’s say around the early 2nd century) accidentally discovers the American continent (I don’t need the discussion to be about how impossible this is for Roman ships or how Romans lack any motivation to go west please), what would be...
  4. Young Presidents

    In my alternate history project, humanity as a whole never invents the concept of an "Age of Majority". Instead, legal independence and the right to enter certain professions is granted on an individual basis via "Competency Exams" which are European derivatives of the Ancient Chinese Imperial...

    America lottery election amendment actually passes?

    This is a bit of a weird one like most of these things I got into a rabbit hole of researching this one very obscure proposed United States constitutional amendment made by congressman Samuel Finely Vernon on January 13, 1846. The amendment was made as an attempt to fix the north and south...

    If Brazil maintained its union with Portugal, how soon would slavery be abolished?

    Let's say the United Kingdom of Portugal, Brazil and the Algarves survived and Brazil continued to be the capital of the Portuguese Empire. With the passage of time the colonial empire would be more and more Brazilian than Portuguese. So how long would slavery in Brazil survive and how would it...

  15. AHC/Plausibility Check: Scandinavian America

    Is it possible that there could be a plausible Scandinavian nation in North America that controls all of the eastern half of the US? (canada as well, maybe.)

    WI/AHC: No Mexican-American War?

    The Mexican-American War was obviously quite influential because it expanded the United States at Mexico's expense, and in this land large states such as California and Texas (which had already declared independence but did not fully control it's present-day territory). What if somehow the...
