Yes, this is an allusion to my first writing on this website, where I had a "Black Legion" in Britain. The concept of that "Black Legion"... is also an allusion to the Black Legion from Warhammer 40,000.Even the name of this regime makes me want to run away from very fast.
Thanks. I had him with a Senate seat... in New York (he moved there after 1836) for quite some time where he worked on civil rights. I'd say that he was there since 1858Really nice! I think it might help is Frederick Douglass has some position before the presidency just because there would probably need to be some way for him to show his skills. Even just in Congress for a term or to with health. One thing is for sure, Frederick Douglass would know how to use the media and how to use whatever position he is in. In our timeline he was the most photographed person of the 19th century, from what I have read. He used new media like photography very effectively. He was excellent at knowing how to develop his image and public persona.
Schurz... good idea, but due to a much more successful Revolutions of 1848/1850s in Europe, maybe he would have stayed in Germany, considering Germany is more democratic than it was in OTL at that time period?I think this Progressive Party would likely include people like Charles Sumner or Carl Schurz.
Yeah, I see your point. So perhaps people like Sumner, Banks, Butler, C.F.Adams, Hoar brothers would be the leading Progressives.Schurz... good idea, but due to a much more successful Revolutions of 1848/1850s in Europe, maybe he would have stayed in Germany, considering Germany is more democratic than it was in OTL at that time period?
I will go elaborate on the Canada situation today. I will need to do my own research.I wonder how different the Quebec Society was then the rest of Canada in this time period. Would Quebec break off to form its own country this early?
