N. America-Butterfly Hurricane by Neethis N. America-Butterfly Hurricane by Neethis
Okay, back to the maps. Heres the map of North America anyone who reads my journal would've known about :D This map is set in the modern day - today, if you will...

I decided to call this timeline "Butterfly Hurricane" - anyone who deals with alternate histories, and probably many other people, will understand the reference ;)

Basically, the South won the war :D In 1866, the Union surrendered, crushed under the weigh of southern arms and New Englandic rebellion, as well as continued pressure from Britain and France to acknowledge the Confederacy's independance. The Treaty of Atlanta was signed the following year, a disgraced President Abraham Lincoln having to effectively sign the future of the U.S.A. away; the Union was forced to recognise the independance of the Confederacy, New England, and California, as well as having to surrender all territorial claims to the midwest until they could achieve a greater "colonial" population in the area.

In the following years, Britain launched a full scale exploration and colonisation of the midwest themselves (the area later rebelled, along with other colonies, and once independent formed the Republic of Dakhota), and Texas decided to cede from the Confederacy, due to the Confederacy's hostile relations with Mexico. Texan Confederates believed that a peaceful future with their "neighbour to the south", would secure them against their "neighbour to the north", and thus decided to cede from the Confederacy to protect their own interests. After a short and bloody civil war in which the European powers mostly sided with Texas, the Austin Agreement was signed, acknowledging Texan independance, but giving some Texan lands back to the Confederacy.

The Confederacy had already bought Cuba, Jamaica, and the Bahamas in previous years, and now Texas purchased Sonora, Chihauhau, and Baja from a cash-strapped Mexico, incorporating them as new states, and really securing their nation as a major power on the continent. With California still driving east and south at this time, war was inevitable... following a long period of strained relations, the War of Republics lasted from 1897 to 1914, when the outbreak of WW1 saw the two Republics come to a peace accord in the face of a greater threat overseas.

At some point ill actually write up the full timeline - not sure if I'll post it all, but it'll give me more to work with in the descriptions for the other maps to come ^ ^

Since Britain appears to be a republic, does that mean the royals moved to either East Canada or that United Dominion?

Why? The two nations aren't really very similar in this timeline; East Canada is ruled by a branch of the former British royal family, and is very traditional and conservative. The FNE is republican and rather liberal.

I find this scary. Scary and a bit snobbish.
The theory of alternate history itself is interesting. But the mere thought of contemplating this as a pissibility is perverse to me.

Mainly, probably, because I actually live In the north of Mexico, specifically in Nuevo Leon, which accordint to this would be in the Republic of Texas. I think that's what's scares me the most. The thought of being part of Jesusland...

Very creepy indeed. I shall have nightmares tonight.

lol, I don't do these maps to promote political views or say how I think the world should be - trust me, this most definately ISN'T the state I'd like to see the world in :D

The point of my maps is to get people thinking about what they have, and what they MIGHT have had... and in your case, I think it worked ;) heh.

Thanks for the comment.

I didn't think you were promoting anything. But you can bet your ass it made me think about how we are. And that, even now with the whole "Porca Influenzia" (my Italian rendition of the name) pandemic, things could always be much, much worse.

If what you say is indeed your objective, I salute you!

Yuck, republic of Britain. Nice map though.

If that is a Hurricane, what would you call a Cold war with a CSA where they control all of the Americas apart for Canada, the Guyanas and Belize.

Indeed it really got me into alternate history.

I started doing a map for that world but there was not enough detail so it evolved into something else.

I though the flag raising on Iwo Jima was cooler.

I'm sure that I haven't explained a lot of stuff :yum: heh.

I don't really know much about either of those conflicts yet, so I havent even thought about them. If I get around to actually writing a full timeline, then I'll no doubt post it as a seperate Dev here, in which case that will include all you could possibly want to know :D

In response to your post on the South America map too, this is sposed to be modern day, after the events of both world wars and a long and bitter cold war. :) In the modern day, the world's culture is far more diverse then our own, with the C.S.A., Britain, and Germany being the main cultural influences, as well as the largest military and economic powers (although by the turn of the millenium, Germany's fortunes are on the downturn - you'll see when I finally get the European map sorted out, heh), and with other nations such as the U.S.A., California, Russia, and the United Provinces (an enlarged Netherlands) all playing a part too.

WW1 was considerably different, with most American nations keeping out of the European conflicts. Even so, the C.S.A. and New England, as well as the Canadian nations, poured a lot into the conflict in Europe, which ended a year earlier than our own, with Germany slightly better off than ours. On the American continent itself, a series of conflicts known as the "Virginia Wars" bubbled away throughout WW1, which saw the U.S.A. against the C.S.A. and New England, and Dakhota and Texas allying against California, and later, Mexico.
Between the world wars, the U.S.A., New England, and the C.S.A. continued proxy conflicts between puppet nations in Central and South America, each continually supporting opposing sides in any conflict that broke out there.
At the outbreak of world war II, and the start of the Nazi march across Europe, many of these little conflicts were put on ice, and many nations mounted to aid Europe. Once again, the U.S.A. took little part in the European sphere, leaving most of the work to New England and the C.S.A.
California and Texas put much of their old differences behind them, and allied with Russia, forming the Pacific Treaty, to combat Japan's expansion. Since they were instead moored at Alaska, this timeline saw the survival of the Russian Navy, destroyed by storms in our timeline. This greatly aided in a quicker defeat of Japan.
In Europe however, the conflict was more intense than our own. The "Final Solution" was hurried through much earlier, and Britain nearly collapsed after a brutal civil war that saw the Monarchy and current government overthrown. Then, on 20th of July 1944, Hitler was assasinated. The collapse soon after of the Nazi war machine saw a quick rush to a peaceful resolution of the war; the Treaty of Paris took place in August of the same year, and saw a slightly uneasy peace descend over Europe, with Germany still holding on to many lands she had secured during the war, including much of France and eastern Europe, which Russia was not all too happy about. The outcome was good however for the newly republican Britain, which retained Greenland and Iceland, and managed to keep on to numerous colonies for many years, some of them right up till the 'modern day'.

Ahh right, no problem :D

Nah, the CSA of this world, while powerful, isn't the same sort of force to be reckoned with as our own world's USA. The second world war was really one of two theatres; Atlantic and Pacific.
The Atlantic Theatre saw the land wars in Europe, in which the C.S.A. and New England participated, on the side of the Alliance, as well as the ocean conflicts mostly between Germany/Italy and North American nations,both trying to either disrupt or maintain trade routes.

The Pacific saw the Russian navy vying for dominance against the Japanese, and mostly succeeding (thwarting Japanese attacks on both Hawaii and Alaska) and the Japanese invasions of mainland Asia. While Texas maintained a state of war with Japan, occasionally fighting Japan in the Pacific, California declared neutrality, and actually covertly assisted Japan against their old enemy Texas. After the war, California and Japan forged an alliance which still exists to the modern day.
