    WI: Larger Black Population in South by 1920?

    IOTL the current Black Population in the US is about 13% and still for more or less is contained in the South. What would have to change for the Black population for it to not only grow but for it to almost completely stay in the South? How would this affect American History culture and Black...
  2. Smaller Mexico, fragmented New Spain (Gran Colombia but in Mexico) - Better outcome?

    Most Alt-history narratives explore the scenario of Mexico remaining a vast "empire", potentially rivaling the United States in power. This speculation is cool indeed, but here I would like to think about a smaller Mexican State. At the time of its independence, Mexico was indeed enormous, and...
  3. US tries to win the Cold War with kindness?

    Okay fine, clickbait title, I know. (This is more about the developing world than taking down the Soviets.) But more specifically, what I'm asking about is the plausibility of a strategy where the US cuts back on the military interventions and coups in Latin America, Africa, and Asia, and...

    AH Concept: East Asian West Coast in the 19th Century

    (So, I'm trying to come up with an idea for a concept for a private project of mine, inspired by @Ambassador Huntsman's timeline amazing Nobunaga's Ambition Timeline (Go read it if you haven't), but not using the Gavin Menzies' 1421 idea; I want late East Asian colonization, where Japan...
  5. Second American Civil War 1930s Discussion Original Title: Foreign Involvement in a Second American Civil War(1930s)

    I have found that my question didn’t have enough context to work with so until me and the boys(the community) figure this out, we are discussing different TLs and possible new TLs. Original text: After all my research I’ve done it seems a bit of a stretch that a war could break out. But let’s...

    Interesting Southwestern US cultural PoDs

    I'm curious on what this site can offer in regards to this region of the United States of America. For instance, I heard on a Cine Capri documentary that the Star Wars fandom in Arizona alone was so enthusiastic, the prequels were made because of them, starting a huge action science...

    WI: Mass immigration of Africans into the Reconstruction-era South?

    Let's say a hypothetical scenario where for whatever reason Liberia tries to a military conquest for Sierra Leone during the American Civil War (like 1963) but it wraps up two years after the Civil War ending with British annexing Liberia. With Liberians not wanting to live under the British a...

  10. Women's Suffrage in the Great Reform Act 1832?

    As I understand it, women weren't technically banned from voting in the UK until the Reform Act 1832, which expanded the property franchise for men, but also defined a voter as a male person, explicitly barring women from voting. While I understand that women didn't vote often beforehand by...

    What if: American Currency was coin based instead of Banknote Based?

    The simplest way I can explain is that instead of have $1 - $100 Banknotes the US adopted a system that had $1 -$100 coins? How would something like this be implemented in the 1800s and how would this change American History?
  12. AHC; Create a second American Civil War

    Very shakily posting this in post-1900, but I think that's the more likely of the two. Your challenge is to create a second American Civil War, within the parameters of 1865-2023. Whatever the reason for said war is up to you - It could be racial, political, gendered or something else entirely...

  14. AHC/WI: US agrees to extradite Mohamed Reza Shah for trial in Iran?

    One alternate history scenario I have not seen discussed is for the US to agree to extradite the Shah as soon as the Ayatollah Khomeini demands this. One major cause of the Iran hostage crisis was the United States accepting the Shah, who was gravely ill with cancer, for treatment. The US...

    Presidents come early (or late)

    AHC : United States Military Coup in the 80s

    As it says on the tin, with a PoD in the year 1945, create a good situation for the United States to see a military coup occur in the 1980s and that coup solidifies power into a legitimately strong dictatorship.

    Firestorm of Vienna - 1913

    Firestorm of Vienna - 1913 On an unusually warm day of winter, 1913, in a slum in northern Vienna, a lamp was dropped onto the floor by a strong wind, instantly setting fire to the wooden floor of the men’s dormitory. The window was left opened by a small time Austrian painter, too tired to...
