    The Spirit of Revolution: The Expanded Universe of AMPU

    American history is, for a nation not yet three centuries old, a long, storied, and epic procession. It's many times the stuff of legend, the modern day reimagining of the myths of the Old World overlaid on the frontiers and wilderness of North America. With so many exciting events and...

    "What Madness Is This?" Vol. II: The Pinnacle Future

    "What Madness Is This?" Vol. II: THE PINNACLE FUTURE I want to thank the countless readers and commenters that have fueled my imagination in the original 2013-14 WMIT and the Redux that was written from September, 2018, to present day. Without these posters, none of this would have been...
  3. Jefferson's Anti-Slavery Crisis: Alternate History of the U.S.
    Threadmarks: Chapter 0: Introduction, Who, What, Why

    I was always fascinated by the American Dream, and how it does not always translate to the American Reality. So I asked the question, "What if Georgia and Carolinas did not participate in the American Revolution (walked out of the Declaration of Independence convention) due to Thomas Jefferson's...

    WI: America Fails To Get The West Coast?

    Let's face it- OTL has been a bit of a US wank since the louisiana purchase. The continental US has everything the european powers scrambled Africa to get, and a cleaner way to china. The mississippi basin alone probably would've made us a world power off sheer agriculture, but still we trecked...
  5. WI: The 1782 French proposal for the Treaty of Paris is accepted

    For the purposes of this scenario, let's suppose that the United States is in a troublesome position at this point in the American Revolutionary War (how it comes to be in this position is up to discussion). The Thirteen Colonies are under such stress that they are willing to accept any treaty...

    EMPIRE OF FREEDOM HISTORY OF THE AMERICAN EMPIRE I: THE WINTER DREAM "The Christmas Eve of 1777 was one of the most important nights of American history, for it was on that frozen night in Valley Forge that an soldier and an angel changed the fate of America, forever." -Alexander Gerald...
  7. WI: Mormons stay in Nebraska?

    In our world the Mormons camped out in Nebraska over winter but left and continued on to Utah. What if they stayed? Would Mormon numbers be greater in a more fruitful land? Would they conflict with Gentiles? Would they pick a side in the Civil War?

    ...and Tyler, Too!: What if John Tyler WON the 1844 Election?
    Threadmarks: 1 - The Election of 1844

    (Note: the following is an exploration of how John Tyler could have won the election of 1844, and some of the results of what might have happened afterwards, it is not wholly realistic, and is in fact inspired by a game of President Infinity that I played as Tyler and managed to just barely win...

    Napoleon Doesn't Rise- Effects on Spain?

    Otl, to say spain was hit hard by everyone's favorite corsican minor noble (unless you yourself are a corsican minor noble, which is a tad unlikely) is an understatement. They lost their empire, whatever industry they had, their people, and indeed, Franco's rise and their whole history of...

    WI: Mexico Sold California to the United States, Instead of refusing.

    So, I think nose of us on here know how the Mexican-American War started. Texas had been admitted into the US as a State, after winning a revolution in Mexico only 10 years prior. This was considered an act of war by Mexico, who never recognized the Texan claim to the land. Couple this with the...

    AHC: Make Relations Better Between Americans and the Native Americans

    So, yeah, I think we can agree that life has sucked for the Native Americans over all after being absorbed into the United States. Between the Indian Removal Act to the Trail of Tears, relations haven't been the beast between American settlers and the Natives, either. So, I challenge you...

    An Empire of Liberty

    This thread has been moved. Apologies for any inconvenience.
  13. WI: The Oregon Country becomes independent

    PoD is John McLoughlin became the leader of the Provisional Government of Oregon instead of George Abernethy (McLoughlin was a pro-independence figure in OTL). So the Provisional Government decided to declare its independence as a de facto sovereign state in order to solve the 54'40 dispute once...

  15. No Manifest Destiny

    What if the United States did not have what is called the Manifest Destiny so they do not and do not want to go past the Mississippi river. Possible POD is the offer to purchase New Orleans, the purchase goes through but not the purchase of the land West of Mississippi river. It could be they do...
  16. How much Manifest Destiny ?

    So i watched a video from Monsieur Z. In the video WW1 didnt happen and therefore the US stayed isolationist. In his scenario the US gained the unpopulated States of Canada, Cuba and northern Columbia because they didnt had any land left in the US to take away from the natives. (The difference...

    The Star-Spangled Expanded Universe of "What Madness Is This?"

    THE STAR-SPANGLED EXPANDED UNIVERSE OF "WHAT MADNESS IS THIS?" Due to an almost constant output of little bits of fiction written by fans of WMIT Redux: The Union Forever, dare I say one of the darkest - yet really fun and intriguing - dystopias you'll ever read (I hope you agree, at least)...
  18. USA without a Pacific coast

    Hi everyone! This is my first time posting here, but I´d like to see your thoughts on this scenario, which I think seems more or less pretty feasible. Though the POD is pre 1900, many of the questions I ask are related to post 1900 consequences, so not sure if this is in the right place...
  19. How would a US confined to east of the Mississippi develop?

    Let's assume that the Louisiana Territory is taken by Britain from France. Let's also assume that Britain and the US have friendly relations with each other as they cooperate over joint-ownership of the river. How would no Manifest Destiny across the continent affect American culture? With no...

    AHC: Violent Christain Theocratic State in America

    Challenge: Around 1830s to 1850s, create a violent, theocratic state in America, that is founded by Christians, such as a Baptists. And keyword, VIOLENT, so unless you want to make Mormons violent, then Deseret does not count.
