What Madness Is This ?

A timeline chronicling a very different history of what would in OTL be known as the United States, with many divergences throughout the late 18th and early 19th century and beyond. Ultimately, it tells the story of a balkanized North America and focuses on how alien (yet oddly familiar) the setting and its politics and society would be to us… Created by Napoleon53, this timeline can be found here.
