    If the "South" won the American Revolution

    Nope, not having a stroke. Sketching out a hypothetical TL, not sure about the exact PoD but the idea is that the the British are more successful in the northern states during the ARW but less successful in the south (or, I guess, as successless) with the end result being an alt-treaty of Paris...

  8. Would a British North America be more, or less developed than the United States OTL?

  11. Butterflies in India Following Failure of the American Revolution?

    I understand that a commonly discussed topic here is the failure of the American Revolution. Usually, the discussion centers around North America and Europe. However, I feel like India is overlooked as a source of potential butterfly effects from a failed American Revolution considering the...
