    Freedom's Constitution and Slavery's Confederation

    Children are and were already counted when it comes to calculating population totals in order to apportion how many representatives a state will get. In our timeline they counted all non-slaves (except for Indians), but only 3/5 of the slave population. In this timeline, they are only counting...

    While doing research for another project I came across the story of Iran threatening Iraq with war in 1974 and 1975 over the Iraqi response to renewed fighting between the Iraqi Kurds and Baghdad.

    AHC: Whig Party survives to modern day while the Democratic Party disappears

    Having written a timeline on this very premise, IMO there are two things you need: 1. Weaken the unity of the Democratic Party 2. Improve the unity of the Whig Party In my timeline I had the 1835 assassination attempt on Andrew Jackson succeed. This resulted in Martin Van Buren becoming...

    AHC: California's Central Valley becomes as populated as Tokaido Corridor

    Anno Mahometi: A Islamic Timeline

    This definitely has me intrigued. I'm hoping we get an explanation as to how TTL's Christianity, (which, if I'm reading this correctly, is Nazarene Judaism) developed without the Crucifixion, and therefore I'm assuming without the resurrection. How are Nazarene's maintaining that Jesus was the...

    I'm brainstorming events for Europe in a US centered timeline I'm working on, and I came across the attempted assassination of King Louis Philippe of France in 1835.
