  1. Mr. Havana

    WI: President Theodore Sedgwick

    It appears my fascination with the early United States has no end. I was watching the HBO miniseries John Adams (2008) this afternoon when a notion I had never truly considered flew across my mind. In episode 6, when the House of Representatives is voting on the contingent election between...

    AHC: Keep the USA a Regional Power

    The United States of America, for most of the 20th century and the beginnings of the 21st century, has been described as one of the greatest if not THE superpower of global politics. In my encounters with alternate history, this conception has been challenged on occasion, but it seems that for...

    A functional American monarchy

    I recently watched a video of AlternateHistoryHub, in which he explained how would be a United States of America with a King, and despite I agreed in certains aspects of the politics, I consider the YouTuber's POV kind of pessimistic. (Below I would leave the video link) His view is that the...

  8. Could the United States do a complete re-organization of its administrative divisions? (like the 13 Commonwealths from Fallout)

    Please note that I am not referring to the US creating new states, or partitioning states, I mean a (somewhat) complete overhaul of all of its administrative divisions in the whole country.

    WI: Grover Cleveland wins re-election in 1888?

    IOTL, President Grover Cleveland holds the distinction of being the only man to be President twice, as he was first elected in 1884, then defeated narrowly in 1888, before coming back in 1892. He lost in 1888 because he failed to hold two extremely narrow and competitive swing states, Indiana...

    Would Spain join Britain in ARW in exchange for Gibraltar or Florida.

    As in the title, if circumstances arose earlier in the ARW where Britain was not so confident in victory, would they be a able to recruit Spain to their side by offering Gibralter or Florida in exchange? Would they be willing to join against France too? I thought of the scenario after I read...
  13. AHC: Have the US keep the nuclear edge over the USSR

    AHC: Make The CPUSA as relevant as the OTL Libertarian Party

    So your challenge here is with a PoD after 1939, come up with a way where the Communist Party USA instead of basically becoming irrelevant even compared to the rest of the extremely marginalized American Far Left ends up growing to the point where it's comparable to the OTL Libertarian Party...
  17. AHC/WI: Apartheid-type sanctions against the United States
