    Homework from another world

    While working on a test for my students, I had a loose idea for a fun way to tell a story, this is the end result of that stray idea. Enjoy the test my students might have taken in another world. I shall make no claims of plausibility and mainly chose ideas that seemed fun. If people think this...

    Threadmarks: Introduction

    I - PROLOGUE A moment ago we had a decision to make José. We could negotiate with the Tyrant, or ensure the flag of independence flew forever. It seems the decision has been made for us.

  4. No Mexican War: Would the US-Mexican Border be close to OTL? President

    DBWI: What if California was a free state?

    What if gold was discovered say in 1849? (15 years later than OTL.) As we know because gold was discovered early it allowed for southern migration and eventually becoming a slave state after becoming independent (like our sister state Texas.) Would the Mexican American War have gone differently...

    What if California seceeded from the Union during the Civil War to stay neutral?

    For those of you who did not know, California actually did come close to seceding from the Union during the Civil War. The Governor John B. Weller had decided if it came to war between the States, he would try and secede from the Union to form an Independent California Republic. However his term...
