The Two Americas by Parasky The Two Americas by Parasky
23 April 2010: Updated with my new map style, looks much better. Check out the links if you haven't seen the whole project or want more info.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------


THE TWO AMERICAS ALTERNATE HISTORY PROJECT:

Part I: [link]
Part II: [link]
Part III: [link]
America Map: You Are Here!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Map of North America, circa 1950. Pretty self explanatory. If by chance you have no idea what this is about, then welcome to alternate history! Basically this project explores what the world may have been like if the Confederate States of America had managed to win in the American Civil War. I use real research to do a lot of it, but in the later parts I'm forced to take some artistic creativity in what happens, as by that time things have changed so much there is no way to determine what is likely and what isn't. It's a bit of a long read, and you may not understand it all, but if you like history and/or a good story, then go ahead and take a look. At the very least you can appreciate the maps and how much I improved over the course of the project.

EDIT: If you're wondering what the states are, I'll list them below. And yes, both Alabama and Alberta are abbreviated "AL." That's okay because they're in two separate countries.

EDIT-EDIT: If you're wondering, the capital of the USA is Philadelphia and the capital of the CSA is Havana.

If you ever plan on remaking this map, remember that the Chihuahua-Durango border was a straight line in the 1800s, not like it is today.

Does she live in the northern Arizona, because if she lives in southern Arizona then shes out of the country?

She lives in Scottsdale, the very north-east corner of the Phoenix Metro area. I'm guessing by your map if I'm reading it right that it might be in the Confederate States.

He she would deffinetly be living in the Confederate state of Arizona, which in this timeline never made it past being the Confederate territory of Arizona, which was ceded to Sonora and Chihuahua after they were annexed.

I love this map, but there are some things I dont understand. Isnt the OTL CSA Arizona Territory about twice as thick as yours? How did the USA gain the Philipines when the CSA gained Cuba and Puerto Rico? How did the USA gain Jamaica, the Bahamas, and the Virgin Islands, at the same time as they invaded Canada, or by purchasing them? Arent some of your CSA southern Mexican states a lil big compared to most of the other CSA states, or did you do it with Texas' size in mind?

A lot of those questions are answered in the associated pieces linked in the description. I dunno about Arizona, but the US gained control of the Philippines after the Confederate-Spanish War made it too economically difficult to keep them. Likewise the CSA gained Cuba and Puerto Rico during the same war. I don't remember whether the US gained the islands during the war in which they took Canada, but I'm thinking they probably purchased them some time after the war since taking Canada would be a difficult enough task on its own. As for the former-Mexican states, they're that way because that's pretty much how the Confederate congress decided they would be. Mexico was too big to be its own state, and it's existing division were too small and confusing. You should read through all the parts if you have some time. It may not be the most plausible timeline (more plausible than many, IMO), but it's the one history I'm most proud of.

I actual read through the whole thing last year and well....dont feel like doin it again yet. Although I remember enjoying it. Arizona did stretch a lil farther north but oh well, still a good concept. If I were dividing Mexico into CSA states, Id have the whole thing turned into a single territory and redraw state borders with sizes more equal to Virginia and Georgia, but thats just me :) .

I love what you have done with the Confederate Flag!!! It really sets it up as a very stark contrast from the Union flag, well done.

Thanks! I really like how it came out. I have to admit, it was somewhat inspired by the flag of the Allied States of America from Jericho.
