    Arcadia Forever Reigns: an alternate New England

    Howdy folks, welcome to my newest creative endeavor. The scene opens on a bright, sunny morning at the Massachusetts State House. The grounds are jam-packed with cheering spectators, all of whom had come to see one man - Harrison Gray Otis. Otis, having spoken the final phrase of his oath, had...
  2. WI: Chief Metacomet (King Phillip) wins King Phillip's War and wipes out English control in New England?

    King Phillip's War was the English name for a conflict between an alliance of Native American tribes in what is now New England and the Snglish settlers. The English settler population was badly hit by the war (obviously the natives were worse hit in the end). But what if Chief Metacomet had...
  3. WI: The Richard Reaches America in 1606

    In 1606, The Plymouth Company was formed as a division of the Virginia Company and was granted a royal charter along with the rights to the Atlantic coast of North America between 38° and 45° N. Later that year in August, the Richard (a Plymouth Company ship) sailed from Plymouth, England for...
  4. PC: French or Dutch New England

    Within the English (pre-union with Scotland) empire, New England had the honor of being where the religious dissidents (i.e. puritans) were shoved out of the way. While Virginia was settled for financial motives consistent with traditional colonialism, New England was mostly a dumping ground...
  5. WI: Cromwell emigrates to New England

    I read somewhere that a young Oliver Cromwell seriously considered moving to the Plymouth Colony. What would be the ramifications if he did emigrate and, through his natural talents, rose to become a leading figure in the settlement?

    Political Ramifications/Consequences of New English Secession in War of 1812?

    This has been explored to a deal even in my TL, however that is only one avenue. For the sake of the thread lets say NE secedes in the war of 1812, and again for the sake of the thread, other than NE, the Wo1812 remains largely the same. What will be the political ramifications of the secession...

    These Fair Shores: The Commonwealth of New England

    After some much needed time away from both content creation and resolving other matters I was dealing with, I am now pleased and excited to, nearly three years after the first thread was started, to inaugurate the new thread for the ever-expansive timeline I have created on this forum. Astute...

    DWI: What if New England hadn't succeeded in the War of 1812?
    Threadmarks: DWI

    As we all know, the War of 1812 was a humiliation for America, and after the White House was burnt to the ground by the British, the Hartford Convention declared independence for New England, which distracted the Americans enough for the British to capture the Great Lakes and the Michigan...

  11. WI: Different Connecticut Capital

    For much of its early history, the colony and later state of Connecticut had two capitals: Hartford and New Haven. In 1873, the public voted to have Hartford be its sole capital. A prominent factor in the decision was Trinity College donating part of its land to be part of the capital building...
  12. Government of a Second Constitutional in the 1920s

    I’m writing a TL, where essentially the United States sort of breaks up before the constitution is ratified. New England, New York, and Carolina (NC, SC, and GA) break off around 1789 and a rump US remains. At some point in the 1910s or 1920s I want these countries to come back together to...

    WI: The Bushes Stay in New England

    In 1948, a young George HW Bush had just graduated from Yale and he needed a way to make a living. His uncle offered him a job at a prominent Wall St firm, which would've allowed Bush's family to remain in Connecticut while he worked in NYC. But instead Bush decided to relocate Texas and try his...
  14. Stars, Stripes and A Pine

    STARS, STRIPES AND A PINE Stars, Stripes and A Pine, Post #1: The War of 1812 was meant to be a quick war, an easy war, a “Second War of Independence” that would be as great as the first…or at least, would’ve been. No-one expected a British victory in Baltimore. No-one anticipated the death of...

    Why is Halifax and Portland so much smaller than Boston in an industrial scale?

    How come Halifax and Portland in are less industrialised and less populated than the one you see in Boston in our timeline? Halifax is a city in Nova Scotia, Canada, with a population with over 400,000 people and approximately about 400,400 at metropolitan scale total, which is not pretty low...
  16. The Confederal Revolution: A Maps and Graphics Timeline
    Threadmarks: Introduction/Map of North America

    So, for my first timeline, I decided to jump on a bandwagon and make my own fictional North America. The main PoD is that the Whigs successfully pressure for the US to only annex the area claimed by Texas after the Mexican-American War. The South does not like this, and secedes after Winfield...

    The Dialects of the Independent American Republics

    In an ATL where the Articles of Confederation collapse into a domino effect of independent republics and confederations of former US states, how would each nation's dialect develop by today? Is slightly more than 2 centuries enough time for dialects to form notably different from the OTL...
  18. A Loyal City on the Hill - The Commonwealth Wank

    So for those of you who were around before I left the board, I had a TL called the Commonwealth Wank. I've been asked to revive it or start it over now that I'm back, and I've been thinking about it more and more. So, with a bit of inspiration from @Kanan, I am pleased to announce that I have...
  19. If Aymar Chaste had defeated Alvaro Bazan, would the French have colonized south of Maine earlier

    I was about to leave out the word earlier, but then remembered Haiti. More generally, what's the earliest possible date the French could have won the Franco-Spanish war? What's the furthest south of Fort Pentagouet and Acadia the French could have colonized the continental North Atlantic coast...
  20. A Tremendous Mistake- A New England Patriots TL

    Introduction The New England Patriots seemed like an unstoppable dynasty during the early 2000s. Winning three Super Bowls and appearing in a fourth losing to the New York Giants in the 2007 season, finishing at 18-1. One game away from perfection. The team was ready for the next year. Then...
