  1. AHC: Greater Inuit Nation State

    Your challenge should you accept is to create, or discuss a scenario where a Inuit nation state covering Greenland and most of the Canadian Inuit lands. Bonus if you can add Northern Alaska. For my part i think the most likely path is a Danish/Norwegian/Swedish dominated Arctic. Still, i am not...

    Welcome to the Alaska Caucus! First Presidential Contest in the Union!

    Camelot’s End by Jon Ward So. Let’s say Carter picks a different state. It won’t be Mississippi since that doesn’t help him, IOTL he already made a serious play at Oklahoma to disrupt Fred Harris: that leaves Alaska and Maine, the latter is too close to New Hampshire which is great in...

    Who buys Alaska if not the USA? (Is it guaranteed to be Britain?)

    Simple question. Assuming for whatever reason, the US doesn't buy Alaska from the Russians, who does? I've heard of some weird proposals, like selling it to Liechtenstein, but what is the most likely scenario? Is it just Britain? Are there even other plausible options? I expect this thread to...
  6. Why did Alaska Stay American?

    The question is Ultimately why did Canada become independent of Britain, and territories like Alaska not become independent of the US? Canadian Confederation occurred in 1867, the same year as the Alaska purchase and Nebraska's admittance to the Union. In this way it seems that time since...
  7. The status of Alaska without major military installations in the territory

    What if the us government never had the need to place military installations in Alaska, for example if ww2 and the cold war never happened, what would be the status of Alaska? Would it have become a state anyway?
  8. Alaska: The United States' Little Russia

    Part 1 - The Alaskan Gold Rush of 1867 For most of the 19th century, the Russian Empire had been in decline.

  10. AHC: Make Alaska much more ethnically Russian while still having it become an American state

    So, this AHC is pretty simple: make Alaska stay largely "Russian" culturally and perhaps even linguistically, while at the same time having it still fall into American hands and becoming an American state (or possibly even several) by 1959. I know this probably isn't very likely, but it's fun...

    Soviet Alaska?

    I am working on a map/TL and I cant decide what to do with Alaska. In the TL, Russia hangs on to alaska and doesn't have to sell it. The two options that I cant decide on are: 1. Russia keeps Alaska as a territory and it eventually becomes independent but still a close ally. 2. The russians...

    WI: Russia sold Alaska to Canada?

    Title pretty much explains it. What if an alternate timeline Russia instead sold Alaska to Canada? How would this effect history as we know it? Discuss.
  14. AHC: Global road connection

    The challenge is to have, by 2018, global connection for roads. This means, at minimum, being able to drive across the Bering Strait and Darien Gap, as well as any other possible bridges you want to add.

    How would you make the Bering Sea a Cold War hot spot of with a US controlled Alaska.

    WI: Nootka Crisis Goes Hot?

    What sort of PoD would be needed to get the Nootka Crisis of 1789-1792 to become a war? Would "simply" changing the French National Assembly's opinion on the crisis be sufficient? Also does anyone know which First Nations traded with which empires? I assume that, given that the North West Coast...
  17. Canada buys Alaska instead of the United States

    Considering that Canada is in closer proximity to Alaska than America, what if Canada had bought instead of the United States?

  19. A Spanish Pacific Northwest
    Threadmarks: Intro/Part I: to 1793

    ------------ Having grown up in the Pacific Northwest, I was always intrigued why there were so many Spanish place/street names. As it turns out, in the last few decades of the 18th century, Spain was quite active in exploring the region; navigators got as far as Alaska. They even established a...

    Invasion of the Kuriles from Alaska

    I recently read The Thousand Mile War (highly recommended) and towards the end it mentions Allied plans to invade the Kuriles, with an earliest date of autumn 1943, but more likely the following year. The Americans had put a lot of effort into the construction of military bases and airfields in...
