I was just wondering about this. As we all know that during the Ming Dynasty, the Chinese had built a fleet that could rival the British Fleets. We also know that the sailed and reached parts of Africa and India. The question is since the Chinese as one of the biggest fleet know to history, could they have settle down, in any POD event, in the New World before the Europeans? If so, would it result in a revolutionary war as well? Thanks for the reply.
