This is a timeline which I hope to finally carry into 2012 and beyond. I was partially inspired by a few timelines, such as the Dominion of Southern America, a few What-Ifs, and some of my past ideas. The hope is to keep as realistic as possible, and constructive feedback and helpful suggestions are welcome. I'm going to try posting this in a mixed format of a timeline along with 'historical articles' as if from a textbook, see if that works well. Timeline: 1740: Admiral Vernon turns his ships towards Havana, instead of Cartagena de India; having coordinated with the governor of Jamaica, they send 30 ships to the Spanish city; 1750: Treaty of Madrid: Spain cedes Cuba to the British permanently. 1752: Patrick Murray becomes governor of Cuba. 1760: Guy Carleton becomes third governor of Cuba. 1762: Guy Carleton is transferred to governor of Puerto Rico 1763: Guy Carleton serves as governor of Cuba until 1778. 1763: James Murray serves as governor of the Province of Quebec, holding the post till 1774. I'll work on the US next.
