The Commonwealth of America by edthomasten The Commonwealth of America by edthomasten
A map of the Commonwealth of America, c.1876; the PoD is in 1774, when the Galloway Plan is adopted by the First Continental Congress. After the abortive Massachusetts Rebellion in 1775, London realises the need to reform the Governance of the Americas, and implements a revised version of the Plan of Union. Fast-forward a century, and the Commonwealth of America is the most powerful component of the British Empire...

The lands of Latin America fell to revolution even when the American one failed here?

They most likely would. The American revolution was an inspiration to many Latin American independence movement, but the real spark was the overthrow of King Ferdinand VII of Spain by Napoleon when he expanded his empire. This caused the colonists in the new world to denounce the French invasion, and would rather be independent than subject to Napoleon.

It's amazing to see how things would be different if the US didn't win huh?

A few of the states look fairly strange, tbh{esp. Vandalia, New Brunswick, Augusta, and Georgia}, but otherwise, I like it, and in fact, I've always wanted to try a Californian Republic{I never could figure out how to supersize it without looking strange, though.}.

I'm curious under what circumstances Quebec gained its independence from the British, was it not long after the Union, or was it 19th century occurence? Ooh, I hope it was 1848, just because I wish something tangible had come out of that period. My curiosity is also piqued about how this affected the European landscape, did France not have a revolution, did the Napoleonic wars not happen? I see Hispanola is both united and independent, no Haiti or Saint-Dominigue, nor even Santo Domingo. I assume Russia's power has increased, does that mean they were not distracted by Napoleon nor their coffers drained repelling his tired army?

PS In case you didn't realize, I'm very excited and I think this is one of the best scenarios and maps that I've seen.

PPS Nice USA analogue, very clever.

I just noticed that Greenland belongs to Scandinavia, very titilating, a United Scandinavia. Do you include all of Scandinavia or is it just a different name for Swedish-Norwegian Union? And, it is just me, or does the top left inset indicate that Britain is not included in the British Empire?

I don't think Britain is excluded from its own Empire, it's just that these maps usually show an area the readers are familliar with for scale, and since the artist is British he probably got the basemap from a British atlas.
