40 Years post-Revolution by edthomasten 40 Years post-Revolution by edthomasten
A map from a branched TL to the Commonwealth of America, where things have gone rather differently.

It is 1876; in 1774, the Galloway Plan is adopted by the First Continental Congress, and what in our timeline became the USA remains part of the British Empire. But both America, and the Home Islands, begins to seethe with discontent under the rule of the despotic King Augustus, and finally in 1836 revolution breaks out on both sides of the Atlantic.

Three men become the founders of their respective nations; in New England, Henry Clay routs the Royalists and joins up with his Chartist brothers in Britain to form a new Republic based on Religious Liberty and Freedom. Virginian Daniel Webster decides to lead the middle colonies on their own course, free from overseas influence. And in the South, diehard Royalist John Calhoun welcomes the exiled King to Charleston and plots to expand the institution of slavery across the American continent...

Nice play on the Great Triumvirate. If I may suggest, fade down the colours of the flags and they'll look more "on paper". Distort ("displace") everything even with the paper texture, if you want to go for the "it's really on paper!" look.

Very nice. You make fantastic looking maps!

Interesting map, I'm assuming the despotic Augustus is Ernest Augustus, Duke of Cumberland?

This map's awesomeness cannot be restated enough. Next to the Kimbangu one, it's probably my favourite of the lot. One small detail, though - I think you should switch Webster and Clay around. As it is, they've pretty much taken each other's beliefs.

Oh, and I'm currently making a Munroist extension of this, so expect that in the Map Thread shortly.
