TL-191: After the End

Although he was born in 1890 and misses the 1922 date by over 30 years ? Is that 1922 date not always definitive? Since Elizabeth and Margaret were born in 1926 and 1930 and still exist it would seem not to so Im just wondering what are the factors involved ?

Unless someone is specifically mentioned as existing in the series, I tend towards the butterfly effect.

I don’t know if Mount Rushmore, or an equivalent monument, exists in the US in TTL.
If it did Id guess at least 3 different faces. TR remains obviously but no Lincoln and probably no Southerners need apply. Perhaps Mahan, Sinclair and Smith ? 2 Democrats and 2 Socialists all fighting and in the case of Smith dying to make the US stronger ?

I’m not sure what making “puppets” out of the former CSA would entail, but if it’s referring to the USA granting political independence to former Confederate states after a military occupation, that seems like it would be far more lenient to the local population on the part of the US than annexation and reunion.em to be Confederates
Right it could be seen that way but what it does is not allow them to be Confederates and more importantly they are not allowed to be Americans,They can all themselves whatever else they want but the USA tells them what to do about just about everything other than how to hang the tp-over or under thats up to them. So no not very lenient in reality if it is in name.
I also don’t think that the US would carry out such a policy after the end of the Second Great War because the US government would not want to run the risk of another anti-US revanchist regime coming to power in the region.
That wouldnt happen if it was handled right but I can see the concern.
Again, the USA pursuing reunion is not “rewarding” the residents of the Midsouth. It does represent the USA ending an existential threat to its national security and permanently reversing the shameful loss in the War of Secession. It also represents the determination of the USA to present anything as monstrous as the Freedom Party’s dictatorship from ever coming to power in the region again.
Right but there is more than one way to do that.This of course is your timeline so its your choice and I completely respect that even though I strongly disagree with it, That said I spent half of this reply asking about blacks in the Northern US in 1944 which likely numbered 1 million or more ittl. What happened to them ? Did they remain or go to Haiti with the black CSA Destruction survivors ? And if they did why on Earth did they ?

I can see that .I was just thinking ittl in the USA at least a truncated War of Secession means thousands who died OTL lived while the Second Mexican War and Great War means thousands who lived OTL died.Colonel Sanders like Dwight Eisenhower was born in 1890 and both seem to be in that sweet spot where they or someone very much like them could be born.
 
Given the role Custer has in the FGW, becoming a national hero for discovering how to use barrels to break through the Confederate lines and the roll that two officers who served under him (Morrell and Dowling) have in shaping the course of the SGW, do historians of the post war era draw any sort of connection between Custer's influence on the officers and their roles in the SGW?

While listening to "The Grapple" and hearing the story go back and forth between the two characters, I couldn't help but think of a future historian writing a thesis on Custer winning the FGW and his perceived protege's winning the second.

Yes, there have been several postwar military historians who have highlighted Custer’s influence on Morrell and Dowling, by 2022. This was also a theme in the last two movies of the Custer film trilogy in TTL.
 
Something now on music: even though rock and roll, as well as blues, don't exist in this timeline, does the electric guitar eventually become a prominent instrument in TTL's music genres/scenes? If so, what are some notable brands on that market? Could probably see brands like Gibson, Gretsch, and Epiphone come into play. Fender and Rickenbacker probably don't exist. It still seems that evolution in the instrument is likely.
 
Would there be Cities, Street and towns that be Names of Famous individuals in TL-191 like Morrel, Dowling and Roosevelt in Your TL?
That's a lot of States and Cities and even Lakes that was named after Famous individuals like George Washington and Lincoln etc in OTL.

Would there be Many Cities, Streets, Military bases and towns name by Certain TL191 Characters?

Yes, there are street names and US military facilities named for TL-191 characters throughout the country by 2022. Fort McSweeney, Oregon, is a town named after Gordon McSweeney, and is home mostly to US military veterans and the soldiers of a large base.
