Let us say that Lincoln picked a hard-core southern as his VP for his second term, and this lost him so votes, but nothing major. This souther, let's name him Jeremy Willson, is not liked by the military and the population in general. After Lincoln's assasination, Wilson comes to power. This outrages the military since he will take a soft-line towards the south and reduce the military. So, after Lincoln's assasination, an orginazation of American generals and soldiers, under General Sherman, plan a coup against the government. The coup begins September 15th, 1865 as units of the Pennsylavania and New York Militias, and some military units, mach onto Washingont, and enter the White House. Sherman orders Wilson to hand over control of the government to Sherman, and Wilson agrees. Sherman declares himself president and supreme ruler of the United States of America. The constitution is ammened so that President's serve for life, and Congress just becomes an advisory board, reduced to one house. Do you think Sherman would march across the world, taking most of it over? And would the American public like this American Ceaser?
