This is a alternate history scenario I’ve been thinking about for awhile but I never really had any idea what chain of events could off made this scenario possible. But after awhile I think I have some ideas. as of this picture the year is 1976 and Reagan‘s 2nd term just ended.
Im gonna right the timeline about this later but if you have questions I can answer them.
Steps for the change __________________________________
This one is short and mainly to tell you that The idea of colonization and people migrating to other parts of this new world is more frequent(especially for the English, where they‘re population settles earlier. Another large shift is that during the undeclared Spanish-Anglo war the English Armada achieved most of its goals however one thing that they got was a couple small colonies in South America that they didn’t use much until later on.
__________________________________ In the beginning other than the Massachusetts bay company’s colony having more puritans and colonists in general in the beginning of its creation, along with getting more English migrants From England to bolster the population. The idea of resentment of the crown continues within the larger New England colonies, especially with the Boston revolt of 1689 where they kick out the governor that was appointed by the king. As resentment builds up like in our timeline when the eventual process of the colonists (who are generally larger) starts demanding their autonomy back, this ends up building resentment faster than in our timeline. Especially when the crown start putting in more restrictions and starts putting in more control.

During the end of the seven years war Britain as a way of weakening the Spanish and gaining the the continents resources they take South America and only allow Spain to keep there mexican territories and Central America while pushing some of the Spanish to live in the southern regions of Mexico and Central America. While English colonists from before and new colonists that are just sent and sold land to move in giving south America a English minority.
As of now this is mainly the period where resentment start to build up to the revolution. I’m this view point as more colonies are created, the Canadian provinces have more sympathy towards the colonists but still favor Britain. However as the acts that restrict and damage the colonies persist Nova Scotia‘s, New Brunswick, and Newfoundland riots continue to escalate unlike in our timeline where they didn’t lead to much. __________________________________
It ends mainly the same way in our timeline but Nova Scotia, Florida, and New Brunswick joins the original colonists. Also support for the revolution is larger in the colonies and sympathy from the Canadians(not much but this is important for later. __________________________________ Consolidation
At this time the US continues its regular course as it try to establish itself and gain more territory in the west. Its also begins sending in settlers to different parts of the country to spread out it’s population as different presidents continue to put in policy to insure US sovereignty and continue the Nations growth, while they also attempt to get information and to get in touch with South America and it’s inhabitants, while trying to get them to also rebel. The US would also be in favor of a stronger military early instead of waiting for the war of 1812 and would begin a process to be able to have a more efficient military while nocking down some pirates in the Mediterranean which again gets them to invest more in a navy, while more wars against the natives for the settlers and the US population continues to grow. All this while Napoleon does his thing in Europe, and speaking of war.
__________________________________ As war rages on in Europe The Americans are mostly done with consolidation. As the American Indian wars had soured relations with the British, and the British continue to apprehend American sailors to fight against Napoleon, the Americans sees this as there chance to kick out every European power in Europe. When the US got Britain to give them a loan for 15mil to but the Louisiana territory, they also got France to sell them the rest of there south America territory(since Napolean gave up on empire building). When tensions eventually broke with Britain this time with the much more prepared American army and more sympathetic Canadians, other than a small skirmish there wasn't anything that kept the Americans from easily taking over the colony and also with a larger navy they then would go to take the rest of the South American territories controlled by Britain and with some negotiations with Bolivar would be able to beat the British but also drastically weaken European power on the Americas. Like this they would than have control over massive chunks of the America’s by the end of the Napoleonic wars. With the only colonies left in the America’s being Greenland, Mexico(for now), the Falklands, some Caribbean Islands, and Alaska.
I’ll add the other timelines and maybe add more to the existing ones later.
