The World William Walker Made by Chanimur The World William Walker Made by Chanimur
This one's pretty simple in execution, but it's still one I'm proud of. This is a North America where William Walker's extracurricular activities in Nicaragua allow the CSA to successfully circumvent the Union blockades during the US Civil War. Additionally, New England secedes late in the war, and Britain gets in on the action too. Poor little rump USA.

Fascinating "what-if" scenario.  In a way, it would be cool to live in this world but events shift out for a reason

Hurry more territory for Britain! Aw crap we sided with the CSA again didn't we?

Well I expect we made sure they stopped slavery there. Hopefully the CSA will be a good little nation and side with the axis like the rest of the nations came into their modern from int he 1860's-70's

And there was never a Republic of California either. A lot can happen in 60 years. :)

Hmmm... not sure if you're aware of the theme of many of my maps or not: alternate history. (In way of response to your previous message.) :)

My thought was that Texas seceded from the CSA, probably fairly recently. This may have been in response to border incursions by Mexico, which the Confederate gov't, while none too thrilled with, was unable to do much about without risking an all-out war. Texas' response was to secede and go to war with Mexico, a war that Mexico won (barely) and took back Arizona and New Mexico.

As for Deseret, yeah, probabl need to finesse those borders a little. I'll probably redo this map at some point though, so I'll fix it then...

Very cool, yes. I can't remember the exact chronology of William Walker's filibustering, but it seems reasonable that he might have done it to the benefit of the Confederacy, if he had suceeded and they still seceded.

Not sure about the borders of your Deseret-- for the most part, those nice, neat square borders were a figment of the US government partitioning territory they controlled. The Mormon proposal for the State of Deseret was much larger and more... geographically based. No reason why their ambition would be any less if they were independent.

I am very impressed that Mexico got to seize all that territory back. Can I guess that whatever war involved that was the same war that precipitated Deseret, California, and Texan independence, and Texas's grab for their original claimed borders?

Or did Texas never join the Confederacy in the first place?

Ah, the inevitable Deseret :D
The map is nice, although I would have chosen a redder colour for the British holdings - the purple one "sticks out" quite a lot.

The only reason I didn't use a reddish shade was I felt it didn't stand out enough from the background. (Which I was really fond of.) Next time I'll use a diff background maybe.
