If America Had Remained British: A Timeline - 1825 to 1850

Updated on May 31, 2009

1828: British migrants to Tierra Roja, primarily originating in India, revolt in the Perth Rebellion causing the continent to split into Australia on the west and Tierra Roja in the east.

1830: Simon Bolivar dies of tuberculosis while attending a Royal Congress in London. Daniel Florence O'Leary from Cork, Ireland, who had been Bolivar's most trusted General, is named Viceroy of Gran Colombia.

1832: At The Council Of Alice Springs, Tierra Roja is absorbed into Australia, and its capital city Ciudad Ferdinand is renamed Melbourne.

1833: Systematically and gradually deprived of most of its colonies, Spain begins to implode. King Ferdinand VII is lynched and Queen Isabella II is placed as a figurehead of the First Spanish Republic. British Prime Minister Lord Earl Grey and King William IV host a summit in London of all Viceroys to discuss the Spanish question. It is decided that Spain and France should be annexed to The Holy Roman Empire Of The German Nation, at gunpoint if necessary, and it turns out to be necessary. The Germans did not want the union any more than the Spanish and French and the core of Europe shatters into a myriad of conflicting mini-states constantly in skirmishes with each other in a manner resembling the Dark Ages. With its major colonial powers completely subdued, the Federation feels confident enough to abolish slavery.

1837: Queen Victoria begins her reign over a world which is swiftly becoming British. With the exception of Mexico, a bit of Central America, Brazil, Argentina and Chile, the entire Western Hemisphere is under the Union Jack. The Indian Ocean also belongs to the Crown, anchored at one end by British Australia and New Zealand, on the other end by British East Africa, and in the center, the jewel of the crown: New India.

1843: Backed by an unholy trinity of German, Spanish and French agent provocateurs, Mexico seizes Central America down to the northern border of Gran Colombia in Panama. Viceroy O'Leary stations a quarter million troops in the isthmus and thus secure on his northern flank, proceeds to offer Chile and Argentina Collaborative Nation Status within the British Imperial Federation.

1844: Viceroy O'Leary travels from Caracas to London to personally petition the Queen to ship vast quantities of food to his own native land to end the Irish Potato Famine. The Queen launches the O'Leary Rescue which saves the Irish population from starvation.

1845: Queen Victoria signs the act of termination of the British Imperial Federation and the birth of the British American Federation. The new union divides the former Federation into two spheres of legislative influence. The American Hemisphere to have its capital at Georgiana, District Of Columbia, while the British Hemisphere's capital is to remain in London. States within both sides of the new Federation will maintain their colonial borders and gain even further autonomy but will remain fully united. This plan is warmly welcomed throughout the British world, especially in India which enthusiastically renames Delhi to Victoria.

1846: Stymied by Viceroy O'Leary in Panama, the Mexicans turn north and conduct raids into American Texas, beginning the Mexican-American War. In awe of their native hero, the Irish rename Cork to O'Laoire which is O'Leary in Gaelic.

1848: Mexican forces flood into Texas, taking the Alamo, and proceeding as far north as Amarillo before being routed and defeated by British American forces at the Battle of Bishop Hills. The war ends with the execution of Mexico's leaders, and the country like its stealthy European provocateur nations, breaks up into a dozen skirmishing city-states. Its southern border secure, the United States Of America shifts its attention to its western shore, where gold has been discovered. The Gold Rush begins.
