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. I'm 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.
Paved for Connections ________________________________
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, but has also begin given more influence by the Federalists. 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 knocking 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 Napoleon 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.
After the massive takeover of territory the united states went to a second consolidation faze. Where they continued to expand to the extent of modern day Canada which involved the Colombian territory and skirmishes that escalated in wars with the American Indian's. As the nation begins to have a larger and larger population the south starts getting concerned that because of the shifts in population in the north they begin trying to find ways to expand. During this time the mexico still offers land to settlers and offer lands to the more expansionist american population. Giving land to foreign nationals ends as rational person would have expected to and Texas secedes from mexico with a but more land than in our timeline but still claims more of it just like ours. With the accession of Polk as President the Mexican American war comments. This war ends the same as ours but the US takes even more of northern Mexico. This has an effect that those Mexicans that were moved south had gain a resentment of the Americans and during the “walker wars”( or the conquest of Central America they joined in and tried to get the Americans out of Central America but got stomped again for their troubles. This time they were taken in as a colony however unlike the rest of central america, chunks of it was given more autonomy because of its population density and the amount of soldiers needed to keep order so as it was being colonized some areas was able to keep more of its traditions than others. However around that time, south america was still going through a faze of conquest. Paraguay was conquered during the war of the triple alliance and lost the same way it did in our timeline but in the end of the treaty because the US was mediating they convince the Paraguayan's that they are better off being annexed by the US and so they do, and along with the country their western claims were put into the deal. With Paraguay being underpopulated it was easy to settle it and make it majority American/English, especially with the war making it even more depopulated. Venezuela's annexing came to the nation not accumulating to much debt from the US and then being annexed as a way of payment. Columbia was turned into a territory and later a colony under the guise of them support and sending relief into central america during the walker wars. Peru and Uruguay were annex do to threats of the president in office at the time as they continued to expand through the continent. Chile and Ecuador had referendums to see whether they would be annexed or not, where in Ecuador people called foul play while in Chile there wasn't any violent rejection of the referendum. Bolivia and Argentina when to war with the US in different times first it being Argentina where in the beginning due to guerilla tactics, support from the locals, and surprise attacks seemed to be winning and so Bolivia( being anxious to fight decided to attempt to push back the Americans) joined in the war extending their victories but would still eventually fall. Brazil was less of a war and more like putting down a small insurgency, because this was not long after Pedro went to visit America and began losing interest in the empire when he returned. As he was losing interest, the republican movement in the country was growing and he believed that the nation wasn’t going to last long, and so he met with advisors and his family and eventually with a wealthy elite growing more and more angry with the emperor and with influence from the Amerika (seeing the efficiency) decided to take steps to become a state. This leaks and when it’s achieved in 1879 there is a insurgency by the wealthy elite who wanted there own “republic” where they can control it. But the Americans (wanting to take control of the rest of South America) sent in troops to stop them and because the elites decided to fight like a professional army instead of guerrillas most of the rebels were killed and the ones to survived were picked off in the following months. Pedro was given control to continue his rule as a governor but to allow settlers from the US to begin colonizing less populated areas. This being surprisingly easy since South America was already vastly underpopulated. By 1895 Pockets of American settlers are created with the largest being in southern Venezuela, central Paraguay, and northern Brazil. As this was happening the american public still had the Caribbean in the back of their mind since that was where the last remnants of European rule had survived. Following William McKinley accession to the office, pushes by parts of the american public, the media, and news coming from the Caribbean (and yeah I'm sure you know what happens), the US declares war on Spain due to Maine and proceeded to quickly overwhelm the remaining islands and with their base in Hawaii (which is independent) takes the Philippines. The islands in the Caribbean begin to be colonized while the Philippines stays as a territory over the next few decades. Years later McKinley gets shot and Teddy takes command. By this time their aren't as many thing to do militarily but under Theodore the US would experience an early military expansionary period, especially in the Navy where its being bulked up beyond belief and eventually even surpasses the British navy. Along with the strongman type leadership Teddy brought for his reforms, he also started repairing relations between the US and UK. Teddy would continue to serve as president instead of getting injured and being filled with diseases from his adventures after he left. He continues to push his policies until WWI starts. He want's to get in and try's to find a way to join the war, and Teddy finds the reason for war in the sinking of the Lusitania.
I’ll add the other timelines and maybe add more to the existing ones later.
