Pence was raised as a Democrat and voted for Carter in 1980. This changed when he met his wife OTL.
My head canon is that all British and French colonies in the Americas were relinquished and either became occupied territory or independent. I imagine that colonies such as Jamaica and British Honduras in TL-191 became independent decades earlier.
In the case of Jamaica, I like to think that they were able to put up a good defense against the Confederacy from completely invading the island nation and being a strategic ally to the U.S.
I like this.
The little historical explanation of how the lives of Americans are living in the upper region of former Maine sounds very realistic.
Thank you. Me and Joshua talked about it and he came up with the Canadians being more or less pretty relaxed with Americans in Norhern Maine.
The biggest thing would be cosmetic things. (Changing the flag to the Canadian flag, renaming things from presidents/Revolutionary leaders to Canadian, British, or local leaders, etc).
Other thing that, it probably look like OTL Maine or even like New Brunswick as metion.
You guys need to watch these. Its one person's take on the world-building in TL-191.
Worldbuiding in TL-191 Southern Victory, Part 1 (1862-1917)
Worldbuilding in TL-191 Southern Victory, Part 2 (1918-1944)
Here is something interesting:
In TL-191, I would expect the same thing to occur, but it will still continue even after slavery ends in the Confederacy.
Rotunda Room of Mammoth Cave.
Even before the War of Secession, Mammoth Cave was becoming an international sensation, visiting by famed writers, actors, singers, and more, and would be after it. During the US Invasion of Kentucky, General Irving Morrell would visit the cave.
Third Southern Victory
I made this map based on the speculative result of the Entente Powers winning the First Great War.
The Confederacy gains West Virginia, New Mexico, and part of Missouri. The Mormon nation of Deseret is born. Canada gains Upper Michigan and a part of Washington, which is based on the disputed area during the Oregon Boundary dispute.
The Confederate state of Jackson, which makes up more than half of Missouri, is named after Claiborne Fox Jackson who was a Missouri governor that lead the Missouri secessionist movement towards the Confederacy. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Confederate_government_of_Missouri
I decided to rename New Mexico to Arizona as a historical remembrance of OTL Confederate Arizona.
I doubt it. Since the Confederacy holds such a grip on Mexico in this timeline, I can see the Confederates forcing Mexico to agree to send runaway blacks back where they came from, especially when Featherston becomes President.
A very big and very victorious Confederacy here, complete with an newly freed Canada and an independent Utah.
Who owns Haiti at this point?
United States President Al Smith delivering his speech of war declaration against the Confederate States on June 23, 1941.
"You've done it now, Yankees. You've captured me."
A scene from the first episode of the HBO series, "Comrades in Arms," based on the novel of the same name. This scene portrays United States paratroopers coming across an old man in Tennessee at the start of the advance on Chattanooga.
One of only three (perhaps four) verified photos of the legendary Confederate Delta bluesman Robert Johnson (1911 - 1943), who is considered one of the most important people in the evolution of the blues and rock and roll. Johnson moved from the Mississippi delta to Louisville, Kentucky, US in the mid-1930s to escape the Freedom Party and to pursue a recording career. Johnson was killed in the population reduction.
A TL-191 version of this video would probably have a higher casualty count, among other changes.
For a TL-191 version: Reverse the roles and imagine the monologues in German.
