Oh cool it gets worse. Again, isolationism is an understandable reaction to that! Eeesh! It's funny, I don't think I've ever seen a TL where America gets humiliated this way. See it destroyed, stillborn or become an awful dictatorship, but never had it's cultural treasures looted like this! Very interesting!And for context: Ash said that during the Anglo-American war of the 1850s, Hamilton DC was ransacked and burned to the ground by British troops. They ransacked huge parts of America's heritage, including all the portraits of the founding fathers, the Bill of Rights, the President's china tea set, most Congressional records, Washington's sword, etc, etc
I prefer the idea of an 1850 Anglo American war to be honest. It's more original and organic to have a different war in a different time than a repetition of the same historical beats.You missed the opportunity to have the POD be the US getting their ass handing to them in a much more brutal War of 1812, with New England seceding from the Union and joining the British Empire as a protectorate.
Also, based and Hamiltonpilled.
I suppose the Chairman is the real one with power, I wonder what the president actually does at this time and how I has it changed since Hamilton.The President has not been heard from recently. Most Western observers are not really clear who is President, as there was no publicised inauguration ceremony in March. I do wonder where the President went myself.
Can I get a link to the aforementioned discord? The link in Cosmic Ash's signature isn't working.
Edit: I went back and had a look at the very first wikibox. What are the positions of the Republican, Socialist, Heritage, True Socialist-Marxist, and National Socialist parties?
And wouldn't the endorsement of George Pataki have (severely) hurt the Conservatives?
When did slavery end in this timeline's U.S.? It had to have been later than 1865, probably more along the lines of when Brazil ended it (1888).
Is the Declaration of Independence, Bill of Rights, and books at the time when the British rampaged Hamilton D.C. gets looted?
In New York, I guess there will be a fewer skyscrapers than OTL and OFC with no Statue of Liberty.

I like how there's a little tab for the Constitution on the top. I'm guessing the ABL is the American Baseball League?
If the Internet is in an early 2000s-ish stage, would the old Monobook Wikipedia skin fit more in-universe than the new Vector skin?
Because Ben Franklin is considered a not just a *mere* Traitor, but a super-duper Traitor. Not only did he betray the crown, but he betrayed his birthplace- Boston- by siding with the perfidious rebels. Thus, the New England regiments probably made a point to look for Old Benjamin's stuff and burn it.What fricking idiot did that? The rest only has historical value but Franklin was honoured by the damn Royal Society!
A kind of propaganda using vague language. How could the generations of exiled activists and ordinary view disdain him for kind of tyrannical anti-democratic but a traditionalist shift?
