 //​Anglo-American Rivalry// (working-title) is a work-in-progress timeline by [[oshron]]. Unlike his longer timeline, //Atlas: The March Towards the End//, //​Anglo-American Rivalry// covers a much narrower span of time and is being written with the intention of being much more realistic. If //​Anglo-American Rivalry// is ever written in a Turtledove-like story format, the POV characters will be fictionalized versions of oshron'​s real ancestors, mostly Americans but also at least one Italian. //​Anglo-American Rivalry// (working-title) is a work-in-progress timeline by [[oshron]].

-The earliest POD is technically September 4, 1783, but significant changes don't start coming up until after 1800 due to a butterfly effect with no immediate changes. The timeline continues through to the OTL present-day (which will be adjusted depending on how long it takes to actually //finish// the timeline) and focuses on a mutual hatred between the United States and the United Kingdom. Due to the butterfly effect, numerous other changes take place as well, most of which have not been set in stone. One is that Antarctica is known by three different, equally-valid names in the American, British, and Russian spheres of influence because of conflicting claims of discovery; another is that the Falkland fox (Malvinas culpeo ITTL) does not go extinct; and California, New Mexico, ​and Texas are also admitted to the United States at nearly their maximum sizes and very rarely ​partitioned. The most obvious changes, though, pertain to the American and British empires: the borders that the US shares with Mexico and British Canada (as well as its internal borders) are quite different, with Mexico retaining Southern California, the Gadsden Purchase, and the Nueces Strip while the US-Canadian border is never formalized at the 45th parallel; the UK, on the other hand, gains and loses different areas than IOTL, such as not establishing transcontinental territory on Africa because of Omani and Portuguese colonization on the continent, the internal borders of Australia are much different ITTL, and much more of Africa and Asia falls under British control.+The earliest POD is technically September 4, 1783, but significant changes don't start coming up until after 1800 due to a butterfly effect with no immediate changes.
