  1. A bigger Russian presence in North America?

    Could Russia, with a POD after 1600, get a bigger slice of western North America than it did IOTL - one that stretches from, say, Alaska to northern California? I realize the difficulties with this WI are considerable, given the country's vast territory and the fact Siberia is already much...
  2. Russian Alaska

    Greetings, this is Karl the Writer, coming in from the bowels of the internet to writer a little something I have been wanting to do for a long time. I will be exploring the possibilities of a Russian Alaska, and what could potentially occur. I was inspired by AlternatehistoryHubs video on this...

    Alternate buyers of Alaska?

    Hey, all. So as we all know, Alaska was sold to the US by the Russian Empire. It was not viewed as an especially valuable territory, but it was of some strategic importance, and so the Tsar Alexander II sold it to the US in order to make some money after the Crimean War while also denying its...

    WI: America Fails To Get The West Coast?

    Let's face it- OTL has been a bit of a US wank since the louisiana purchase. The continental US has everything the european powers scrambled Africa to get, and a cleaner way to china. The mississippi basin alone probably would've made us a world power off sheer agriculture, but still we trecked...
  5. Alaska: The United States' Little Russia

    Part 1 - The Alaskan Gold Rush of 1867 For most of the 19th century, the Russian Empire had been in decline. An old-fashioned, conservative absolutist monarchy with a vast colonial empire spanning both Europe and Asia, it suffered from political instability, a harsh, repressive government, and...

  7. If Russia Had Found Alaskan Gold Might They Have Kept Alaska?

    Alaska and its environs have had three significant gold rushes, the Klondike Gold Rush near Dawson City that happened from 1896 to 1899 in what is today the Yukon Territory about 100km from the Alaska border, the Nome Gold Rush from 1899 to 1909 on the western Alaskan coast, and the Fairbanks...
  8. If America annexes Canada, do they end up with Alaska?

    From what I have heard, one of the main reasons that the Russians sold Alaska to the Americans was that they could not defend it from the British, who they had poor relations with. If the USA annexes Canada earlier somehow, would they sell it? America would have plenty of frozen land to settle...
  9. AHC: Russian Hawaii

    With a POD as early as you like, but preferably post 1836, make Hawaii a Russian territory much like Alaska. You may include other Pacific islands as well. Given the well-known shortcomings of Russia in the Pacific IOTL, you may have these territories sold or lost in a war later on.

    Threadmarks: Introduction

    The countries that almost were - ALYASKA Ante scriptum : I hope I've not mispelled the name in cyrillic on the picture. So, why "the countries that almost were" ? This TL is part of a project on a series of focuses on countries that could never existed but could have. Alaska is the...
