Re: Civil War Alternate History

I'm going to add the Lanfong State to the list of independent nations. It is a tributary state of China, but has its own foreign policy and army. Historically a kongsi, or semi-sovereign mining company with a democratic Chinese-only federal government, the state now has complete equality under the l...

Had this long post on politics in the INF, Japan, Ottomania and China that I lost. Anyway I've updated the maps and list of countries. I forgot the Marquesas Islands are another US territory and about the SSS islands.

Re: Civil War Alternate History

Feminism is much more controversial than in our world. Most states refuse to give suffrage to women for longer than in OTL, with US's earlier granting the right to vote under Kellogg being a notable exception. In the United States, both major parties endorsed suffrage in the 19th century. The Reform...

Re: Civil War Alternate History

The two major parties of the United States are the Republican Party and the Reform Party. The first is associated with religious conservatism, racial equality and big business. The latter was associated with progressivism, but years of corruption and links with organised crime in the 40s and 50s rui...

Re: Civil War Alternate History

The US maintains a racial distinction between the generally more rural and poorer black people ("negro") and the more urban mixed race people ("mulatto" until the 20th century, when it is no longer considered politically correct, then "colored"). Originally, Lincoln only planned on giving voting rig...

Seward (1869-1873) (died in second term) Ambrose Burnside (1873-1877) (just carried out Seward's term and didn't run in his own right) Ruthford B. Hayes (1877-1881) (as in real...

Re: Civil War Alternate History

Better idea for Ezo: a trilateral agreement makes the island the highly autonomous Ezo Prefecture with special concessions to France and the French mining companies. The Kuril Islands south of Shiashkotan were part of the state and also are currently part of Ezo. The others are part of whatever the ...

Re: Civil War Alternate History

Starting to think that the mostly Japanese populace of the State of Ezo Island (French protectorate with its own foreign policy) will want to unite with Japan during the Taisho era and afterwards. Hokkaido is a source of iron and coal for French mining companies, so I doubt France will let the state...

Re: Third-person imperatives - how do they work?

"should" can be thought of as a modal verb for the imperative. By the way, I think that 1st and 3rd imperative is usually considered a separate mood called the jussive.

Re: Civil War Alternate History

I have decided to make some changes to the map, but I'm not going to change the image I linked. Botswana and Swaziland are British protectorates outside the Union of South America (Lesotho is still a member). Ecuador is a US state. Anyway, I didn't finish talking about Canada's borders, I'll do that...
