America, the Failed Experiment: an AH Timeline

What if Alexander Hamilton never made it to the Annapolis Convention in time? There would not be a strong enough leader for centralized government supporters to make a sufficient call for a convention to reform the Articles of Confederation, which means that no Constitution comes about from the Philadelphia Convention, only an amendment to the Articles of Confederation. As a result, states get into more disputes with each other to the point where Rhode Island declares full independence from the US. This cascades until we have 13 independent countries where the United States used to be.

I should hopefully have the first chapter of this timeline that will outline exactly how the country fragmented within the next few days. I hope everybody can enjoy my map and the upcoming timeline!

Welcome to Making Alternate History!

Hi everybody! I started this blog out of wanting to share some of my hobbies that I am passionate about. One big one is all kinds of speculative fiction, but alternate history in particular. I want to share some of the great writings and ideas that I come across as well as my own in this genere. I also want to share some things about other hobbies I have, like playing strategy games and collecting Lego. I have been interested in Lego since I was very young, but my interest in strategy gaming and AH has only come about recently. I hope that everybody will enjoy my upcoming posts and posts far into the future!
