So New Spain remains controlled directly by Spain for roughly 70 more years, thereby meaning Mexico never existed until after the Spanish-American War? Hmm. I can see a situation where American settlers had basically flooded much more of the OTL Mexican Cession (including the new regions you’ve added), making secession and annexation obvious. I’ll have to complain loudly about those state borders, of course. It’s my duty. And “WWI” happening at all, much less anyone but Wilson dragging the US into it. And why didn’t Russia sell Alaska to the US?- The Spanish Empire does not fall for longer (again, TTL is still being conceptualized, so you can imagine your own butterflies).
- The Spanish-American war of TTL is in the 1880s, and ends with Baja California, Cuba, Sonora, and Chihuahua in the Union.
