How is the History of Canada taught in the ex-Canadian states?
Why didn't the USA annex Texas? At the end of the series, Dewey wanted to readmit all of the ex-Confederacy, and a large U.S. military presence existed in Texas toward the end of the SGW. I feel like the USA would have annexed Texas by 1946 (on the 100th anniversary of their statehood).
How is the relationship between the Eastern European EC nations that used to be a part of the Russian Empire prior to the FGW (especially Ukraine and Belarus) and Russia by 2021?
In 2021, throughout the US, Canadian-American history in TTL is taught in public schools as a series of distinct phases, with the ascension of the Canadian states into the Union after the end of the SGW framed as an process of reconciliation and justice.
From what I understand, Turtledove himself has indicated that the US would eventually bring Texas into the when the status of Texas as an independent state no longer served US interests.
In TTL, if the US had forced the issue of reunion in Texas during the immediate postwar period, it would have ultimately been successful. Ultimately, in TTL, this did not happen for several reasons:
-The Dewey administration, after an extensive debate, decided that existing military requirements precluded a likely difficult military occupation of Texas; unlike the rest of the former CSA, Texas had gained political independence, and did have a history of political independence from before the War of Secession.
-Any consideration of permanently militarily occupying Texas ended later in the 1940s, by the time that the US military launched Operation Husky against the Russian Empire in Alaska.
-During the first generation after the end of the SGW, the Republic of Texas was the destination for a large number of people from the former CSA who refused to accept US rule. By the beginning of the Humphrey administration in 1961, around three million people had emigrated from the former CSA to Texas. This had the effect of creating another large constituency in Texas opposed to reunion.
I can only imagine that having Texas be a safety valve of sorts made eventual reconciliation and readmittance happen sooner as the people most likely to fight a guerilla war just up and left for the Lone Star State.
hows the Confederacy treated in Texas, especially the featherson period.Yes, that was a factor in the successful political reunion project in the rest of the former CSA
One negative consequence of the mass flight from the former CSA to Texas in the immediate postwar years was that a number of former Confederate war criminals also fled to Texas. This would become a source of diplomatic tensions between the ISA and Texas well after the end of the SGW.

Just goes to show that there's no timeline where audiences will make correct decisions. This sounds incredible, honestly.Welles’s first attempt at directing, writing and composing a stage musical, a song-and-dance adaptation of Faust, was a massive commercial failure.

What pandemics have there been since the PoD? In OTL we had Spanish Flu, Aids, and Covid. Any analogues in TTL?
