    AHC: Non slavery-dependent American South

    For this alternate history challenge, create a history where a European-descended nation in OTL's American South wasn't dependent on slavery for its economy. There could still be small amounts of slavery within the country, but not to the extent of OTL's American South, where slave labor was the...

    WI: Georgia remained abolitionist?

    Hello all, So, the colony of Georgia was founded by James Oglethorpe, a noted social reformer. In 1735, Georgia (under Oglethorpe's proprietorship) banned slavery -- both the slave trade and ownership of slaves -- becoming the only one of the Thirteen Colonies to do so. This was known as the...
  3. PC: Lithuanian Slavery

    If the Lithuanian people remained pagan instead of converting, how possible (if unlikely) was it for Lithuanians to be used for forced labor. In an alternate 16th century, could it be possible for Sweden and Poland to allow slave raids against pagan Lithuania and ship them around Europe, the...

    Southern States leave the Union before 1846

    I have some sort of interest about US history despite not being American, especially in the period of the Civil War. Most of it developed after watching some movies but any attention is good attention am I right guys? Anyway... I was thinking about it. The South had a lot of influence on the...
  5. PC: Viable Climates for White Slavery

    Either through mass indentured servitude or through a reverse slavery scenario, were there any places in the Americas (or anywhere in the world that can have plantation colonies for that matter) where white slavy can be practical without the majority dying of disease? I think northern Argentina...

    DBWI: Civil War happens instead of Poor Man's Rebellion

    One might remember that during the 1840s, there was growing debate over the idea that America would under go a civil war caused by the debate over slavery. However, such fears didn't come to pass when the middle and lower class southern farmers began to rally in opposition to the unfair...

    Slavery in the Thirteen Colonies, post-1776

    Hey everyone. So, if the British won the American Revolution, how likely would the abolition of slavery in the Thirteen Colonies be? I know that many black people in North America (both free and enslaved) fought for the British, and part of what motivated this was that Britain seemed more likely...

    To be In Dixie: A Graphic Timeline on the CSA
    Threadmarks: OP + Map.

    To Be in Dixie Welcome to the World of 'To be in Dixie', a timeline that is meant to attack on the overly troped 'extremely successful CSA' or 'excessively idiotic and stupid CSA' cliches. This will try to show what would be an organic and proper development of a country, that has won its...
  9. If the American Civil War is averted, will some states ban slavery on their own?

    Assume the ACW is averted - maybe South Carolina gets cold feet, or something. Anyway, regardless of the reason, would any existing slave states abolish slavery before congress decides "time, gentlemen, please"? If so, which ones are most likely?
  10. Fremontian Fracas: An Earlier American Civil War

    Let's say Fremont wins in 1856, and the South secedes shortly thereafter due to fear of Fremont taking action against slavery. Earlier American Civil War. What changes in this earlier American Civil War? Does the end result stay the same? Any generals that are more or less prominent?

    Hello. I am going to post story lines and vignettes from my timeline Jefferson's Anti-Slavery Crisis. (You can find it in my signature). I had a blast writing the lore, and I am thinking of writing more stories. Here is the first. I. Crisis at the Continental Congress The delegates from...

    What If The USA Took The Yucatan Peninsula In The Mexican American War?

    So there are a few videos on the topic (most notable being WhatIfAltHist, but from before he had a good mic), and the gist of it was that during 1847, there was a request from the white, slavery-based landowning elite of the Yucatan, then an independent state to join the USA. OTL, it was turned...
  13. Brazil enforces the 1831 prohibition of the slave trade?

    At the pressure of Great Britain, the Empire of Brazil outlawed the importation of slaves from Africa in 1831. After a few years, however, the slave trade returned with a vengeance and the law was blatantly disrespected, with as many as 800.000 slaves being brought to Brazil in the period...

    In 1865, going against the advices of his ministers, Dom Pedro II travel to the Brazilian city of Uruguaiana, that has been taken by the paraguayans but was in siege by Brazilian Army, where he ride his horse in distance of a paraguayan rifle shoot, but the soldiers doesn’t shoot. His...

    Eventual abolition of slavery in victorious CSA - why?

    An oddly common thread in works involving Southern victory in the Civil War is the idea that they would of their own volition eventually abolish slavery and replace it with the "apprenticeships", "court costs", and similar post-Reconstruction arrangements to keep blacks productive but powerless...
  16. Long-Term Social Effects of an Earlier Abolition of American Slavery

    So working off of this idea (it may or may not be plausible): If the 1784 Land Ordinance, banning slavery in new US territories, passes it somewhat likely means that states like Kentucky, and Tennessee (along with Louisiana, Arkansas, Missouri etc.) enter into the Union as free states. This...
  17. England Actually Enslaves the Irish

    Note: This is not meant to promulgate the Irish slaves canard. We already know that it is a myth used by specific groups and certain unsavory types created by an anti-Semite not to mention built on exaggerated and outright fabricated information . This is only to meant hypothesize what if...
  18. Southern Africa Becomes A Source Of Slaves In The Americas?

    Is it possible for the Southern African region to be a source of salves during the trans-Atlantic Slave trade? Assuming it still gets settled during the beginning of colonialism then is it possible that a colony based on exporting slaves would develop?

    Threadmarks: Battle of South Mountain

    “With the fields of fire spread out over a space of nearly six miles over dense forest cover, the first day at South Mountain featured some of the most intense small unit fighting of the war. It was a fight of rifleman against rifleman, led by captains, colonels, and brigadiers.” -- Joseph...

    What would Amarelo folklore look like?

    Around the world, folklore is defined as an expressive body of culture held by people composed of traditions and customs common to that culture. Folklore is often influenced and changed by culture, history and religion which affects its development and expansion. In fact, I decided to create a...
