    Fenians, Brits, Mexicans, Canucks and Frenchies....OH, MY! An alternate American Civil War

    I predict South Carolina will be the last to rejoin. During this time period the state was majority black, so I imagine the white population will continue to do everything they can to suppress the black vote for as long as they can. The moment they don’t they lose control of the state.

    AHC: Staten Island as part of New Jersey

    Westchester would be of similar distance/travel time. If any of modern Westchester were to join the city it would've been Yonkers/Mt Vernon/Pelham voting yes to consolidation back in the 1890s. You could at most stretch it up to most of Westchester south of Downtown White Plains, anything to...

    WIP Map Thread

    Im in the process of making a "New York State in Crusader Kings"-esque mod in my free time(I have no real goal here). As part of defining the boundaries of NYS I ended up making wasteland provinces for each state, resulting in this:

    I think this is an interesting idea. that said as someone who knows Indian states there are some issues with the names of the remaining native kingdoms. Mumbai I assume is named after the city, but is far inland away from where it is. The Maratha Confederacy owns almost no Marathi lands so...

    That border seems to suggest Rockland County NY was added to NJ. That or given the border between Westchester and Putnam counties; NYC, Westchester, Rockland and Long Island are part of a state with Northern NJ.
