  1. Made a Nation: America and the World after an alt-Trent Affair
    Threadmarks: Introduction pt. 1

    Made a Nation: America and the World after an alt-Trent Affair “We may have our own opinions about slavery; we may be for or against the South, but there is no doubt that Jefferson Davis and the other leaders of the South have made an army; they are making, it appears, a navy; and they have...

    LA Riots Worst Case.

    So I was looking for something to watch when I come upon LA Riots: As We Watched and it got me thinking. What would be the worst-case for the Los Angeles riots? Could it spill onto other cities seeing massive riots over racial grounds? What would the consequences be for a worst-case scenario?
  3. AHC/WI: The People's Party/Populists as a major Farmer-Labor party?

    Ahh, the People's Party. While successful in the short time they existed, they never really expanded their base of support beyond their rural core, and were later swallowed up by the Democrats. What I wonder is what if the Populists managed to survive and gain the support of organized labor and...
  4. No US, no Kerensky Offensive; how will WWI end?

    In my last post I asked what the effects might be of US neutrality on the immediate events of 1917. It seems that one major change would be no Kerensky Offensive, since US loans were a major part of convincing the Russians to try it. Had the offensive not taken place (and failed), Russia...

    Treaty of Washington - Secession without Civil War

    So president Franklin Pierce dies in the train crash of January, 1853 (in OTL only his son died in the accident) and president William R. King assumes power in march of that year. However, as in OTL, King was very ill and dies of tuberculosis in April. David Rice Atchison, president pro tempore...

    AHC/WI: Socialist Republican Party

    The two-party system has been a very constant facet of American politics; for the majority of US history and into the present day, the two main political parties have been the Democratic and Republican Parties. However, their political coalitions and party platforms have shifted many times, most...

    WI: Morocco wishes to become a US state?

    I recently remembered reading about how Morocco and the US have had very good relations dating back from the founding of the country or shortly after it, and had a very weird and random idea pop into my head. Moving aside the likely improbaility of it, what might the response be in the US or...
  8. WI: Two-year US presidential term?

    Here is one interesting possibility that even makes sense to me: What if United States presidents served a two-year term instead of four? The idea has never been considered, yet in many US states, governors served 2-year terms until fairly recently, and in Vermont and New Hampshire they still...

    "And I saw black": A US-focused Timeline prequel for my HOI4 mod
    Threadmarks: Prologue

    I was writing lore for my Hearts of Iron 4 Mod (discord here) and I figured out that I could just write the United States timeline out here as I go along. Please keep in note that the actual POD for this timeline happens a very long time before these events, though the history of the United...
  10. the Imperium of Canada

    In a America-Nazi Cold War scenario, how likely is World War 3?

    So let's say that Operation Barbarossa is (miraculously) completely successful and the Soviets are pushed beyond the Urals. Let's also say that the Western Front drags into a stalemate and peace is made in 1945 or 1946. Let's again also say Hitler is in much better health then OTL and can be...
  11. How could have Japan surrendered before Germany?

    As the title suggests, what has to happen for Japan to fall before Germany?
  12. AHC: Setup for a Prosperous, Industrialized Latin America

    With a POD any time during or after the Age of Discovery, how can Latin America (anything south of the modern US) be set up to be comparable in living standards to the US of today? Colonization patterns don't necessarily have to be similar (e.g. the metropole for any region can be different) but...
  13. Amendments proposed at a 1969 Constitutional Convention

    The United States may have come the closest to an Article V Constitutional Convention in 1969 over the issue of reapportionment. Only one more state needed to call for a Convention in order for it to be ratified. Source...

    AHC: reverse the fates of Germany and the United States

    In otl the usa is a interventionist superpower with global influence, a less than thriving democracy, and decent racial tensions, while germany is a non interventionist welfare nation with superb civil rights, a very healthy (for now) democratic process, and some serious mass genocide in the...

    Broad Stripes and Bright Stars: A Soccer/Football Timeline
    Threadmarks: Intro

    “You could honestly just have three teams in the World Cup. Whoever wins Europe, Brazil, and the United States.” - Gary Lineker “There are two types of people in Washington. The football players, who will just ram and ram into the opposition and hope it breaks. And the soccer players, who dance...

    Chester A. Arthur "1885"

    Basic what if President Arthur beat Blaine in the 1884 Republican primaries and how would he fair against Grover Cleveland in the Presidential election
  17. What if American Jewish migrants eventually have a patois or mixed language created from English and Yiddish as their main native language?

    What if American Jewish migrants eventually have a patois or mixed language created from English and Yiddish as their main native language? What would that language be like(like how much English or Yiddish would penetrate the language, would it be written in Hebrew or Latin characters, what...
  18. Browning M1919 GPMG

    After watching the Forgotten Weapons video about the AN/M2 "Stinger" machine gun a few weeks back, I've come to wonder why the US Military didn't try to adapt the M1919 into a GPMG. Army Ordnance clearly had the idea during WWII with the M1919A6, equipping the M1919A4 with a pistol grip and...

    WI: OPEC is never created?

    As the TL says. I was thinking that if by some reason there's a right-leaning government in Venezuela in the 60s (for instance, if Medina Angarita or Pérez Jiménez aren't overthrown), that government would have been more friendly towards the United States and wouldn't have tried to create an...
  20. What if the US made a Jewish state to send Jewish immigrants too during the major immigrant wave of the late 1800s

    What if the US made a state to send Jewish immigrants to in the late 1800s in order to avoid anti-Semitic riots and prejudice from other immigrant groups and native born Americans. Would this state be like Quebec but with Yiddish instead of French, where in the US would it be, how many people...
