    Four maps of the US and its surroundings set in the same universe as some posts I've recently made in the infobox thread. I considered a legend but ultimately decided a lot of these nations are pretty self-explanatory.

    Alternate Wikipedia Infoboxes VI (Do Not Post Current Politics or Political Figures Here)

    I'm just using Wikipedia on windows but my system currently has "Smooth edge of screen fonts" off. Long story short, I turned that setting off when I wanted aliased text in Paint and now I've had it on so long I can't go back.

    The Southern Rebellion (December 21, 1866 – May 14, 1868) was a failed attempt at secession from the United States.

    Where did the traditional country colours come from?

    Somewhat off-topic, but does anyone else remember the period when Napoleonic French client states used the light lavender color that is frequently used for Quebec? That was a weird trend, but I like the way it looked.

    Very nice. I particularly like the Kentucky-Tennessee based western state. That's not something you often see in early AH but my understanding is that there was very real fear in the early US of that region breaking off.

    Sorry for the annoyances but I guess this may be the best place to ask for. That comes from one of the old Most Confusing Map games, the third edition to be precise, which you can find here...

    IOTL there were many Mennonites in western Virginia. Perhaps they could be featured here. Additionally, the early Shires of Virginia look interesting and could be used.

    The Age of Illumination: A Timeline

    This week's update is a bit short but I've been quite busy at work recently. While working on this timeline, I've had more than a few thoughts on alternate development of urban areas. In order to put some of my ideas down in writing, I've created this update. All of the alternate moves...

    Pavane by Keith Roberts

    Just read it and finished it yesterday. On the whole, it was very good but several of the measures went over my head. What was the deal with The White Boat? Did it have some larger connection? Regarding characterizing the book, while it is set in an alternate timeline there is not very much...
