  1. How could we get a more populous French Louisiana?

    French Louisiana, despite its ginormous size occupying more land than the 13 colonies and the Hudson bay holdings combined had, at its peak, only 70,000 settlers who were mostly concentrated in New Orleans and nearby areas. How could we, from the start of the 18th century manage to boost...
  2. Effect of a Confederate victory of the Louisiana Creole population?

    The Louisiana Creole are certainly a very interesting ethnic group, originating in Louisiana in the Americas as freed offspring of white European space owners and their female African and African American slaves. Despite this fact of their brutal origins, many Louisiana Creoles and Louisiana...

    Is it possible for Edwin Edwards to have a career in national politics?

    - I understand his administration(s) was obviously shrouded in scandal.... But the man was a 'once-in-a-generation" retail politican, at least in his own state. His first administration from 1972-1980, is likely when he would 'launch' his national career. Could this manifest into a Senate run...
  4. What if the 13 Colonies gained independence, but formed 3-4 countries afterwards?

    Basically the title. How would North America develop if the ARW succeeded but the colonies didn’t agreed on a constitution and became independent? Maybe forming 3-4 smaller unions like New England. I’m guessing the POD would be after the Peace of Paris. How would the borders develop? What about...
  5. 1763: all french-canadiens are forced to go to Louisiana.

Despite that, the francophone population remained there and later became a part of the diverse country...

    Occitan Speaking minority in Louisiana

    Since the immigrants from Catalonia and Occitania did settle in Quebec and Louisiana, I think an Occitan/Catalan-speaking minority could be similar to the Polish speakers in the south.

    Had the British won at New Orleans, would they have seized the Louisiana Territory from the United States?

    Inspired by a comment I made in another thread, I decided that this topic could merit its own thread. When discussing Andrew Jackson's surprising victory at New Orleans, Wikipedia includes an interesting passage... At issue here was the fact that the United States and the United Kingdom had...

    Say that France Antartique is successfully established, and dominates the southeast and south regions as defined here; PoD can be whatever.

    (Sorry of this was posted recently, only threads I could find where from a while ago.) I've been thinking about writing a timeline about a Spanish Louisiana that eventually becomes its own independent nation during the Latin American Wars of Independence, however I've been thinking about how...
  14. AHC: Less corrupt Louisiana

    Louisiana has long had a reputation as one of the most corrupt states in America, and not without reason. Your challenge is to have it be significantly less corrupt.
  15. AH Question: Why did no distinctive U.S. variety of Italian develop?

    The United States is home to distinctive varieties of French, German, and Spanish spoken nowhere else in the world. In the past, a distinctive variety of Dutch was also spoken in the country. But why, in the nineteenth century or before, didn't a distinct variety of American Italian develop...

    WI: The United States gave France the Indian Reserve Following the American Revolution?

    So, France gave the US a LOT of help during the American Revolution, to the point where it put France in debt. France also used to control the land west of the Proclamation Line of 1763, as part of New France. So let's say as a sort of repayment, the US gives it back, effectively limiting...
