  1. Kentucky in a Confederate Victory Scenario

    A follow up to the thread about Missouri in a Confederate scenario. Sort of inspired by the Southern victory series where Missouri stays with the Union but Kentucky goes to the Confederacy. I, however, see them as more or less a pair that’s hard to separate. So here’s my take.

    Threadmarks: Chapter I: The Weight of the Presidency

  6. AHC: Make the U.S. Civil War as close to WWII as possible

    Inspired by @Admiral Bloonbeard's thread in "After 1900" about making The Troubles similar to the Syrian Civil War. I know people like to joke about how the TL-191 series turns out to just be "20th Century Europe in North America," but Admiral's AHC inspired me to suddenly come up with this...

  13. WI: Hafez al-Assad assassinated in 26th of June, 1980?

    So in our timeline, as cited on Wikipedia, Hafez al-Assad was nearly killed by the Muslim Brotherhood at a diplomatic function, so close that he narrowly escaped waiting for a diplomatic function.

    Threadmarks: The Dixie Revolution/Introduction

    In 1866, a bill appeared in the United States House, which would effectively annex Canada for a fairly decent sum of money, and make the territory into states and territories.
