Alternate history
The Diplomad speculates on what might have become of America had it experienced certain crises just a little later in history:
It’s quite possible that the USA would never have come into existence, its independence movement suppressed by “international peacekeepers.” A UN at the time of our Civil War almost certainly would have ensured the emergence of a Confederate States of America. On or about 1863 or 64, as the war seemed headed for a stalemate, we would have seen calls for a negotiated end to the conflict, and, perhaps, the intervention of “peacekeepers” to secure a shaky ceasefire.
