    Hughes wins in 1916; is the US as isolationist in the 1920s & 1930s as in real life?

    Hughes wins in 1916; is the US as isolationist in the 1920s & 1930s as in real life? Would the US have been as isolationist in the 1920s and 1930s if Charles Evans Hughes rather than Woodrow Wilson won the US Presidency in 1916? Had Hughes won, I would imagine that he'd still take the US into...

    If Germany wins WWI, do a lot of Poles and Ukrainians move to the Baltic states?

    If Germany would have won World War I (specifically by not resuming USW and thus keeping the U.S. out of WWI; that way, Britain and France might be willing to let Germany keep its territorial gains in the East if Germany is smart enough to make some concessions in the West--such as a plebiscite...

    A pro-German Intermarium is created after Germany wins WWI

    What if, after a German and Central Powers WWI victory, Germany would have come to its senses and created a pro-German Intermarium consisting of Poland, Ukraine, Belarus, and the Baltic states? Basically, the logic behind this would have been to keep Russia down at minimal cost to Germany...

    USA wins ACW in early summer 1862

    Suppose the USA wins the ACW after Shiloh but before Lincoln decides to emancipate the slaves? Is the newly reconstituted USA doomed to continue on with slavery for the forseeable future or is there a way out despite slave state wishes? I wanted at least a year for the South to really get...

    King Harold wins at Hastings - multiple scenarios

    I've been thinking of multiple scenarios in this regard: 1 - Harold defeats the Normans and Duke William, and is declared a warrior king by the English, akin to Athelstan, Alfred or Edward the Elder. William's sons, Robert and William Rufus, attempt to launch another attack to seize England...

    Germany Wins WWI; German-Puppet Poland Annexes Latvia & Estonia

    Here is my scenario: Germany quickly wins World War I in the West in 1914 due to the French unwillingly "playing along to their own demise" 1940-style. Afterwards, Germany goes all out in the East and, after seeing that defeating the Russians is easier than expected, decides to get greedy--thus...

    Napoleon scores a decisive victory in Russia: what happens next?

    In this timeline there is obviously no disastrous retreat and the Grande Armee remains in tact. I'm interested in what happens next, will the UK keep fighting if Russia is forced to sign another peace treaty with Napoleon?

    Bulgaria wins the Second Balkan War

    For the sake of this speculation, imagine that Bulgaria was successful after leaving the Balkan league and won the Second Balkan War. Would this have quelled Serbian nationalism? If so in what other ways would the First World War be sparked (meaning the Archduke would not be assassinated) from...

    If Hughes wins in 1916, does Wilson run again and win in 1920?

    What I am curious about is this--if Charles Evans Hughes would have won the U.S. Presidency in 1916, then would Woodrow Wilson's stroke have been delayed long enough for him to run again and win both the Democratic nomination and the U.S. Presidency in 1920? Any thoughts on this?

    Henry Clay wins the 1844 presidential election

    Historically, Democrat James K. Polk defeated Whig Henry Clay in the 1844 bid for the American presidency. Of course, Polk went on to prosecute the Mexican-American War of 1846-1848, which resulted in the second-largest territorial grab in the history of the US. Also, Clay was much more...
