    What are some interesting alternate history scenarios?

    For example: What if Lee agreed to take command of federal forces and the Army of Potomac? How does the Civil War play out? Does Lincoln get re-elected if the war is over in say 2 years instead of 4?

    Or what if Nixon beats Kennedy in the 1960 election? Does he invade Cuba during the Cuban Missile Crisis?

    Discuss

    Hitler was almost killed while fighting in World War I.

    PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE POST.

    I'm actually glad he wasn't killed. It was his arrogance and bad war strategy (especially the Battle of Stalingrad) that lead to the defeat of the Axis Powers. If Hitler died in the 1910s (WWI), the Nazi party would have still existed and whoever Germany's leader would have been might have won World War II. The whole world would have been filled with Nazis/Aryans and everybody else would have been murdered.

    Possibly, may have also never had a WWII if Hitler isn't in power.

    Actually it's very doubtful the Nazi party as it existed under Hitler would have existed. Hitler's group gained power in large part because of Hitler's speeches and charisma. Without him, his fringe group would not have come to power.

    What if Constatine had not declared that Christians would be protected by the Roman empire in the year 337. Without the Roman empire, Christianity would not have spread so easily to Western Europe.

    What if Y2K happened? Would we be as dependant on technology as we are now?

    That may well be true. But if we had time machines, killing a young Hitler would still be quite a gamble, considering the chance that my post about it is right. Time traveling to around 1930 to kill Hitler would make a good movie.

    What if Jimmy Carter didn’t blame Americans for a lot of the **** that was going on? If he won and beat Reagan, I wonder how different the country would be today. Lots of republicans derive their ideals from Reagan so who knows where they’d point without him.

    What if the Arab-Islamic conquests stretched as deep into Europe as they did into Persia and central Asia?

    Game changer. Would have affected the whole colonization and spread of European banking system and current day capitalist system. Life would be so different from such a fundamental level.
