Y'know that's probably just what Gran Columbia needs to unify the place on a permanent basis. A good prolonged and ineffectual invasion.
AAAHHHH!!! The Indian Hitler?Satinder Singh, born September 9 in Karnal, north of Delhi. He will be regarded as a particularly gentle and well-behaved child, to the great bewilderment of future biographers.
AAAHHHH!!! The Indian Hitler?
Also... how far ahead do you plan these things, lycaon? Years in advance? Goodness me...
By the way, the main intellectual founder of aristism is a writer who was born well before the PoD. Can anyone guess who it was?
If its not too forward, I would be interested to know how Lousiana's new territory is developing? Any chance Francisco will sell more land and would Louisiana be interested in purchasing more?
I'm getting to Louisiana soon. Suffice it to say that even with its excellent sources of income, the little republic is getting close to the limits of how much growth it can finance.
Hrm.Depends on who you ask.
I have a general idea of where I want to go as far as 1859, but there's a lot I haven't pinned down. Part of the reason I do this thing with the births is to give me something to plan around.
After 1859, the only thing I'm sure of is that the two Big Bad Ideas are Elmarism and aristism. (By the way, the main intellectual founder of aristism is a writer who was born well before the PoD. Can anyone guess who it was?)
I am curious what good old Alexis de T is up to ITTL. I'm hoping he's not going to be the writer associated with Aristism- that would be ironic, but rather cruel.

My money's on Thomas Carlyle.
Wonder how the Republic of Louisiana will deal with hurricanes; New Orleans was below sea level, IIRC, and we know about Hurricane Katrina...
You should've let it escalate into a duel; it would've killed off John Calhoun before he tarnished his own reputation! Saint Calhoun, he would've been!During the debate in the House, he managed to phrase his objections in a way that made it sound like he was accusing Calhoun of having been bought off by Stabler. Calhoun took grave offense at this. Henry Clay had to step in and defuse the situation before it escalated into a duel.
