I have a degree in history and have continued to study it and its related
fields. Alternate History, or Counterfactual History, tries to answer
the great questions of "What if so and so happened or didn't happened?".
What if Germany had won WW1 or WW2? What if Britain had crushed
the American Revolution? What if Napoleon had never fallen and had
become supreme ruler of Europe? What if the Soviet Union had won the Cold
War? And the most popular one: What if the South had won the Civil
War/War Between the States/War of Secession? The list goes on and
on. Authors such as Harry Turtledove, Robert Sobel, and many others
have written books and novels to answer some of these questions.
There are also amateur authors, many who have put up websites of their

- NEW TIMELINE: Worst Case Scenario 2 3 4
by J.T. Tate - Speculation on results of a slip in the bathroom upon
the destiny of an election, a nation and a world. The title is based
upon the principle of "what's the worst that could happen?"
TIMELINES IN MY HEAD
- Hail Jesus, King of the Jews!
by J.T. Tate - Suppose a small backwater province of Rome had been
able to get foreign assistance in their fight for independence? Had the
Jewish Zealots enlisted the aid of, say, the Parthians, perhaps Roman domination
of Judea might have been cut short, and a new Jewish kingdom been established.
See possible political and religious repercussions.
OTHER NEATO STUFF
- A History of the Eastern Roman Empire,
1200-present by J.T. Tate - The successor to old Rome lasted
1000 years longer than its Western counterpart. If a certain crusade
had not been diverted, perhaps it would have lasted even longer.
See how imperial Byzantium might have been involved in the Renaissance, the
exploration of the New World, the Protestant Reformation, and other future
Alternate Flags - This is based on an idea from fellow AH author
extraordinaire Matt Alderman. I
thought I'd first and formost do some pages on the flags of my Bonnie Alternative
timeline. 1: Flags of America -
2: Other Flags. Also, I've put another page
of just Miscellaneous possibilities. Of course,
these are all based on patterns set forth by the Flag Page to End All
Flag Pages, Flags of the World.
If anyone has any alternate history timelines or essays of their
own which they would like to have on this page, e-mail them to me and
I will put them here, with proper credit to the authors. If you have an
AH page you want linked here, just send the word. If anyone has comments,
