  4. Alternate Life Paths of American Revolutionaries

    This comment on my CoHE TL got me to thinking . . . Let’s say that the situation/crisis in the colonies is diffused somehow and thus the ARW did not occur. Perhaps some sort of Dominion of North America, stretching from the Maritimes to the Floridas & Bahama is created. It’s now 1797...

  10. WI William Howard Taft died in 1866

    When future U.S. President and Supreme Court Justice William Howard Taft was 9 years old his skill was fractured in a carriage accident. What if he had died as a result? Who would have filled the void (a very large one, I might add :D) in early 20th Century American politics and the high...
