  1. Scenario: American Greenland and Newfoundland

    Thought of some interesting post-war American expansion based on the map below, regarding plausibility: -Greenland- - It's well known that the Danish government was heavily opposed to a potential sale in 1946 however I believe that under different circumstances the purchase...
  2. AHC: With a POD after 2000, make the 00s as Bad for the US as Possible

    Okay, so the goal is pretty simple Start with a POD sometime after 12:00 AM 01/01/2000, and from it, make the next decade as bad for the United States of America as you can. Cause as much chaos, misery, and misfortune for the US - both for the government and the people - as could possibly...

    Railroads after a Confederate Victory

    Three Pre-Revolution, ARW, and ACW TL poll

    So for the last few days, I've had a few ideas about a TL I could do in the meantime as I'm focusing on TEE, which will have updates every now and again. The TLs I'm considering have PoDs in either the 1710s, 1600s, or even 1500s, while the ACW will obviously have an 1800s PoD. Here are the...

    WI: (Illegitimate) Federalist Victory in 1800

    It appears my fascination with the early United States has no end. I was watching the HBO miniseries John Adams (2008) this afternoon when a notion I had never truly considered flew across my mind. In episode 6, when the House of Representatives is voting on the contingent election between...

    AHC: Keep the USA a Regional Power

    The United States of America, for most of the 20th century and the beginnings of the 21st century, has been described as one of the greatest if not THE superpower of global politics. In my encounters with alternate history, this conception has been challenged on occasion, but it seems that for...
  11. What if the USSR and Eastern Europe accepted the Marshall plan?

    The Marshall Plan aid was divided among the participant states roughly on a per capita basis. A larger amount was given to the major industrial powers, as the prevailing opinion was that their resuscitation was essential for the general European revival. Somewhat more aid per capita was also...

    A functional American monarchy

    I recently watched a video of AlternateHistoryHub, in which he explained how would be a United States of America with a King, and despite I agreed in certains aspects of the politics, I consider the YouTuber's POV kind of pessimistic. (Below I would leave the video link) His view is that the...

  15. Could the United States do a complete re-organization of its administrative divisions? (like the 13 Commonwealths from Fallout)

    Please note that I am not referring to the US creating new states, or partitioning states, I mean a (somewhat) complete overhaul of all of its administrative divisions in the whole country. The Fallout universe is set in an alternate TL which diverged from ours around 1945, some 24 years after...

    WI: Grover Cleveland wins re-election in 1888?

    IOTL, President Grover Cleveland holds the distinction of being the only man to be President twice, as he was first elected in 1884, then defeated narrowly in 1888, before coming back in 1892. He lost in 1888 because he failed to hold two extremely narrow and competitive swing states, Indiana...

    Would Spain join Britain in ARW in exchange for Gibraltar or Florida.

    As in the title, if circumstances arose earlier in the ARW where Britain was not so confident in victory, would they be a able to recruit Spain to their side by offering Gibralter or Florida in exchange? Would they be willing to join against France too? I thought of the scenario after I read...
  20. AHC: Have the US keep the nuclear edge over the USSR

    As we all know, the US was the country which created the first nuclear weapons and the only country to use them in war, bombing Hiroshima and Nagasaki with nuclear weapons to finally end the Pacific War. After that, the US kept the largest nuclear arsenal as many more countries developed nuclear...
