    What if New England seceded from the US?

    From 1800-1815, the states around the New England region tried to secede from the US, now obviously they failed, but what if they were actually successful. Maybe like during the war of 1812, New England declares independence, what happens then?

    WI: No Dominion of New England

    The Dominion of New England was an attempt by King Jame II in an attempt to centralize the New England and Mid-Atlantic colonies into one administrivia union. It was highly unpopular with the colonies, especially when Governor Edmund Andros came into power and tried to change some legal and...
  3. What if Maryland was founded in New England?

    Reading into the history of Maryland, I find the original purpose of the colony quite interesting, as it was meant to be a haven for Catholics and religious toleration. In OTL this did not last long and the colony was quickly overtaken by various protestant groups. This I believe was in part due...

    Plausibility check: New England leaving the USA after a much more disasterous war of 1812?

    I was starting a timeline, in which the USA gets hammered in the war of 1812, due to Alexander Hamilton surviving the duel which killed him OTL and James Madison deciding that he didn't want to become President. In a case where Washington, Baltimore and Philadelphia all fall, and James Monroe...

    AHC/WI: OTL New England as one whole state?

    Instead of the region of being made up of six different states of the USA, what if New England was one whole state of the USA since the beginning? What POD's are necessary for this to happen? And how will this effect U.S. politics going forward with New England's population being the highest in...
  6. King's Dominion: a Fractured North American Timeline
    Threadmarks: Chapter 1: Baltimore's Ambition

    Hello hello! This is my first attempt at writing a timeline for this site, and it's one I'm quite excited for. This timeline explores a world where the 13 Colonies (or what few of them were around by 1700) never got the chance to form a common American identity and instead separated into three...
  7. Arcadia Forever Reigns: an alternate New England

    Howdy folks, welcome to my newest creative endeavor. The scene opens on a bright, sunny morning at the Massachusetts State House. The grounds are jam-packed with cheering spectators, all of whom had come to see one man - Harrison Gray Otis. Otis, having spoken the final phrase of his oath, had...
  8. WI: Chief Metacomet (King Phillip) wins King Phillip's War and wipes out English control in New England?

    King Phillip's War was the English name for a conflict between an alliance of Native American tribes in what is now New England and the Snglish settlers. The English settler population was badly hit by the war (obviously the natives were worse hit in the end). But what if Chief Metacomet had...
  9. WI: The Richard Reaches America in 1606

    In 1606, The Plymouth Company was formed as a division of the Virginia Company and was granted a royal charter along with the rights to the Atlantic coast of North America between 38° and 45° N. Later that year in August, the Richard (a Plymouth Company ship) sailed from Plymouth, England for...
  10. PC: French or Dutch New England

    Within the English (pre-union with Scotland) empire, New England had the honor of being where the religious dissidents (i.e. puritans) were shoved out of the way. While Virginia was settled for financial motives consistent with traditional colonialism, New England was mostly a dumping ground...
  11. WI: Cromwell emigrates to New England

    I read somewhere that a young Oliver Cromwell seriously considered moving to the Plymouth Colony. What would be the ramifications if he did emigrate and, through his natural talents, rose to become a leading figure in the settlement?

    Political Ramifications/Consequences of New English Secession in War of 1812?

    This has been explored to a deal even in my TL, however that is only one avenue. For the sake of the thread lets say NE secedes in the war of 1812, and again for the sake of the thread, other than NE, the Wo1812 remains largely the same. What will be the political ramifications of the secession...

    DWI: What if New England hadn't succeeded in the War of 1812?
    Threadmarks: DWI

    As we all know, the War of 1812 was a humiliation for America, and after the White House was burnt to the ground by the British, the Hartford Convention declared independence for New England, which distracted the Americans enough for the British to capture the Great Lakes and the Michigan...

  17. WI: Different Connecticut Capital

    For much of its early history, the colony and later state of Connecticut had two capitals: Hartford and New Haven. In 1873, the public voted to have Hartford be its sole capital. A prominent factor in the decision was Trinity College donating part of its land to be part of the capital building...
  18. Government of a Second Constitutional in the 1920s

    I’m writing a TL, where essentially the United States sort of breaks up before the constitution is ratified. New England, New York, and Carolina (NC, SC, and GA) break off around 1789 and a rump US remains. At some point in the 1910s or 1920s I want these countries to come back together to...
  19. WI: The Bushes Stay in New England

    In 1948, a young George HW Bush had just graduated from Yale and he needed a way to make a living. His uncle offered him a job at a prominent Wall St firm, which would've allowed Bush's family to remain in Connecticut while he worked in NYC. But instead Bush decided to relocate Texas and try his...
