All of the old Confederate parties are gone. I'll get to that when the Southern states begin re-joining.i like it very much,
i'd like to know about the political changes in the old CSA, what party is strongest down there? the Democrats being anti-CSA for so long and the Socialists are to far left for the CSA. so are the Republicans regrouping in the south land? or are the Whigs and Rad Libs coming back?
They're very thankful that they got out while the going was good...also Texas? what's going on there?
The Mormons view themselves as exiled from their rightful homeland. The Sandwich Isles (outside of the Big Island), will be joining the Union soon.Mormons how is all of this changing them? when will the Sandwich Isles become states, and Russian Alaska?
By '60s, Alaska is a Military District, where numerous resource-extraction companies will be moving into...
They're either resentful (a spiteful few), or resigned, by the time Humphrey comes to power.how are all the non-Americans taking being part of the USA?
It is certainly interesting, to say the least.Aye. I definately thought Jamaica would fall during the second great war, it was just never mentioned. Having all the major Anglophone regions of North America under one flag is always enjoyable, though.
I definitely agree that many Confederate die-hards would likely move to South Africa. It wouldn't be any kind of mass-exodus or anything, but I see at least enough for it to be noteworthy.
If Rita allows for it.I always kind of saw Chester Martin continuing his slow slide into politics, probably eventually running for office and ending up as a prominent Socialist Congressman or Senator.
There's not going to be a mirror version of OTL's Cold War between the Germans and Americans: they really don't have anything to fight about. Besides, the Germans are far more worried about Russia, while the USA has more pressing concerns with Japan...Over time, I think its likely that we will see a Cold War develop between Germany and the USA, the beginnings of which were alluded to at several points during the American Empire series. They are the only two countries with superbombs, and even though they were on the same side during the war, I don't think that the foreign policy goals of the two new superpowers are going to necessarily continue along the same track.
The Japanese now have control of OTL Amur Oblast, Jewish Autonomous Oblast, Khabarovsk Krai, and Kamchatka Krai.Ah, finally someone who's decided to do a post-Setting Accounts Timeline-191...uh, TL. Good stuff so far, but I do wish we would get to see more of the problems and politics of the smaller nations around the world; also, what provinces that are in dispute with Russia does Japan now 'formally' have? Just wondering.
The Texans are lucky even to have their token independence. By the 1960s, they're a nice place for rich Americans to use as a tax shelter.Also, what's up with the Republic of Texas? Will we get to see her succession of Presidents after Wright Patman? And how do Texans feel about being an American satellite nation, etc.? As for the Ottoman empire, what's going on with them? We know they have the IM now (I wasn't actually expecting this...I thought maybe they'd be thrown into the U.S.'s camp after perhaps fearing growing German dominance), will they get a superbomb? What does it currently look like right now (i.e. what territories do they hold)?
The Ottomans control all of the Middle East, portions of the Caucuses, and have puppet states of their own running Egypt and the Sudan.
At the moment, the only thing keeping them from building their own bomb is German pressure...
All possibilities...As for Austria-Hungary...if I recall correctly, I've heard before that an idea once posited by Archduke Franz Ferdinand was to eventually turn the empire over into some sort of confederation between her participant nations; perhaps this is what happens to her, rather than fall apart? It still retains all the territories she once had as a monarchy, but it's a parliamentary democracy, or something like that at some point in the future (it also gives a bit of poke toward the satellite nations of the Soviet Union in eastern Europe, considering Germany's growing dominance). Which brings me to another point: maybe a Hohenzollern who tries to unite the throne with Habsburgs?
What I want to know is, when did Sam Carsten finally succumb to skin cancer?
Well if you want to know he said he wanted to take the longest sun-bath ever getting the world record for sun-born and getting and his dead body dip in zinc oxide
Sam Carsten will get a mention in the "Whatever happened to...?" segment.Well, uh, logically going by the end of Settling Accounts regarding Sam Carsten, we can assume of course that he's probably succumbed to skin cancer by around 1960, or I'd at least think so.
Of course, there's always the possibility that we may have to deal with his treatments regarding it.
My apologies. I'm merely continuing on the trajectory of TL-191.This is far too depressing to continue reading
Which means it's succeeded, I suppose
Yup. I've added it into the timeline.Nicely done, but a few questions:
1) Is there now an independent U.S. Air Force under the DOD reorganization? One would think that the Army aviators have been chafing to be on their own, as they did in OTL.
In TL-191, the U.S.S. Pittsburgh is launched in 1954.2) U.S. Navy's first nuclear sub-in 1955? U.S.S. Nautilus as in OTL?
Yes, although some of it is structured differently (with the Japanese in mind, instead of the Soviets).3) I gather that if there is an independent USAF, there's SAC, TAC, ADC, and MATS....
Yup; the Compact of Democratic States is a combination of our world's United Nations and NATO. They'll play a major role in any future conflict that breaks out in the Pacific.4) Australia and NZ hosting U.S. military forces, perhaps?
