SUPERIMPERIALIST AMERICA ERA ONE: The Ascent to Domination (1844-1991)

1844—James Polk defeats Henry Clay.


1844-48—Polk’s presidency continues as it did OTL, including the annexation of half of Mexico and half of Oregon, but in late 1848 Polk announces that he has purchased Cuba from Spain for $125 million.  Southerners rejoice while Northerners scorn.  Polk then satisfies the Northerners by proposing the Compromise of 1848, which states:
1. Any new territory north of 34’30 will be forever free as long as it’s a territory.  Any land south of the line will have slavery during territoryhood.  Once a state is admitted, it can choose whether to be slave or free.
2.  States will always be admitted in pairs, one slave, and one free.
3.  Texas gives up its western land claims.

1848—Even though Polk had said he’d only do one term, people love him so much they nominate him again.  He wins every southern state in a 218-72 rout over Gen. Zachary Taylor.


1849—President Polk sends James Gadsden to Mexico to make another large purchase.  Gold is discovered in Sutter’s Mill.  Cuba applies for statehood, but is put on hold until a new free state applies.   Polk does not contract cholera.

1850—California applies for statehood.  California [free] and Cuba [slave] are admitted on the same day.  A corrupt deal puts Santa Ana back on the throne of Mexico.  He agrees to sell the US the states of Chihuahua, Sonora, and the Baja Peninsula.  Northerners grumble at this, but they set their sights on annexing some of Canada.  Polk negotiates with the British for some of Canada, but the British will not budge.  Gadsden returns to the US, a hero to some.  Polk calls for an improved US army.

1851—Polk again attempts to negiotiate for part of Canada, but British ambassadors storm out and do not return.  Polk contacts cholera from tainted water and dies in DC.  His untimely death immortalizes him forever.  George Dallas ascends the presidency.  Dallas enlargens and reequips the US army even more.

1852—Dallas proposes a new monument in DC called the Polk Memorial.  It is built in the westernmost point of the city.  Dallas decides to return home to Pennsylvania and not seek reelection.  The Whigs nominate Winfield Scott, while the Democrats choose Franklin Pierce.  The “Polk ‘em and Pierce ‘em” slogan works and Pierce rides Polk’s popularity to a 275-30 win.


1853—Pierce sends James Gadsden to Quebec for a top secret meeting with Quebecian officials.  He persuades them to declare independence.  The US backs them under the Monroe Doctrine, as does France, wanting to mess with Britain and get a loyal partner in the new world.  Bogged down in Europe, and not wanting to deal with the Polked/Dallased US army, Britain concedes.  The Republic of Quebec is formed.  James Gadsden moves into Ontario and begins spreading Sam Adams-esque propaganda.  The popularity of Polk, Dallas, and Pierce has made Ontario sympathetic to the US.

1854—In January, Ontario applies to the US for annexation and statehood.  The state of Polk in former Chihuahua is created.  Polk [slave] and Ontario [free] enter the US on February 19.  The Republican Party is formed.

1855—William Walker takes up a force and heads for Nicaragua.  New Brunswick and Nova Scotia [which includes PEI] begin talking about joining the US  [could James Gadsden be involved? Wink ]

1856—William Walker installs himself as president of Nicaragua, legalizes slavery, and applies for statehood.  Northern Cuba breaks off and applies for statehood as the state of Havana.  Nova Scotia and New Brunswick also apply for statehood.  New Brunswick [free], Nova Scotia [free], Havana, [slave], and Nicaragua [slave], are all admitted in October.  Pierce is reelected over CA senator John Fremont, winning all states added during his first term.


1857—Immigration to Nicaragua increased.  William Walker begins a coup in Costa Rica.  Minnesota Territory begins moving toward statehood.

1858—Pierce tries to negiotiate for more land in Mexico.  Deseret [Mormon lands] applies for statehood, but is turned down by both sides.

1859—Walker’s Costa Rica coup is successful.  He sets is sights on Panama, which falls soon, as much of the populace wants to join the USA.  Gran Columbia objects but can do little to stop it.  On December 19, Oregon [free], Minnesota [free], Panama [slave], and Costa Rica [slave] join the Union.

1860—A three way election begins.  The platforms:
Democratic—James Gadsden and Stephen Douglas:  continue the expansion of the US; go after territory in the West Indies, Central America, and Canada.  Continue popular sovereignty and retain the free-slave balance.
Republican—Abraham Lincoln and Hannibal Hamlin:  stop the expansion, no more slave territories, eventual abolition of slavery
Constitutional Union—John Bell and James Crittenden:  do not let the Union fall apart; expand much less and retain the free-slave balance; avoid dissolution at all costs.
The election ends with no candidate receiving a majority.
In the House, Bell decides to back Gadsden, but then the Republicans offer to back Bell to prevent Gadsdenfrom being elected.  In the end, Gadsden is elected by the House.

1861—William Walker attempts to take Honduras and is shot dead.  Gadsden negiotiates with Santa Ana for more territory in Mexico, but Santa Ana dies before anything is agreed upon.  Haiti and the Dominican Republic offer themselves to the United States for annexation, seeing how the quality of life has improved in Cuba and American Central America [ACA].  Though slavery had gone in and out of legality in both territories, it was agreed to allow slavery there, even though it was not widespread.

1862--Haiti, Santo Domingo, both with legal but little slavery, and Nevada [free] and Kansas [free] are added to the Union.

1863—The Democrats begin to split along North-South lines.  The Southern Democrats want to concentrate chiefly on annexing more slave territory, while the Northern Democrats look toward Canada.  The Republicans become more and more antislavery.

1864—The Democrats split at the convention.  Neither side likes the expansion policy of President Gadsden, expanding on each side equally and keeping the free-slave balance, so neither side nominates him.  The Northern Democrats nominate VP Douglas for president and George Pendleton for VP.  The Southern Democrats nominate John Breckinridge for president and Joseph Lane for VP.  The Republicans decide to retain the Lincoln-Hamlin ticket.  Again, the election is close and is thrown into the house.  Somewhat surprisingly, only the deepest slave slaves support Breckinridge, and several marginal slave states back Douglas.  Though the 3 candidates virtually third the states, Douglas wins a very slim majority.


1865—Haiti and Santa Domingo have 2 new senators in DC, both anti-slavery.  Rumors are rampant that slavery’s status is about to be changed.  Southerners demand two new slave states, calling H and SD “neutral,” but the Senate will not oblige.  Secession grumblings begin in the South.

1866—Antislavery Senator Boyer (Haiti) drafts a “Declaration of the End of Slavery” recanting and illegalizing slavery.  He intends that one day, each slave state will ratify this document.  He does not realize the he has opened Pandora’s Box.  By the end of the year, Haiti, Santo Domingo, Polk, Delaware, Kentucky, and Missouri have ratified the declaration and freed their slaves.  Southern states want President Douglas to do something, but he simply smiles and says “Popularity Sovereignty rules.”
South Carolina and Mississippi secede from the Union, followed by Florida, Alabama, North Carolina, Georgia, Arkansas, Texas, Nicaragua, Cuba, Havana, Panama, and Costa Rica.  On December 6, Stephen Douglas is shot dead by a Southern sympathizer in Washington.  George Pendleton becomes president.

1867—President Pendleton appoints Robert E. Lee and Ulysses S. Grant in charge of the East and West, respectively.  Soldiers from Texas overrun Polk and Sonora Territory.  By the end of the year, a blockade is in place, and North Carolina, Cuba, and Havana have been conquered.  The thirteenth amendment to the Constitution is drafted and ratified, prohibiting slavery.  North Carolina and Havana refuse to sign, but Cuba signs it and is readmitted to the Union.

1868—Russia puts up Alaska for sale.  President Pendleton shocks many people by not only offering to buy Alaska, but a large chunk of Siberia as well.  Seeing no reason not to sell, Russia sells both for $90 million.  Pendleton is ridiculed, but no one knows how significant the purchase would be years later.  Pendleton decides not to run for reelection and the Democrats nominate George McLellan, who was a general in the army until he was fired by Lee, for president and TN senator Andrew Johnson for VP.  They want to end the war in 2 years, whether or not Southern territory has been reconquered.  The Republicans nominate editor Horace Greeley for president and Schuyler Colfax of IN for VP.  They promise to crush the rebellion and bring them back into the union.  Greeley wins in a landslide.


1869—Greeley becomes president.  The US Army liberates Polk and the Southwestern territories.  The conquer Texas and move into Louisiana and Arkansas.

1870—The remaining part of the seceding states is captured, except for ACA.  North Carolina, Texas, Arkansas, and Havana free their slaves and are readmitted to the Union.

1871—Mississippi, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana, and Alabama are readmitted to the Union after ratifying the 13th amendment.  The 14th and 15th amendments are passed, granting former slaves citizenship and the right to vote.  ACA [American Central America], led by transplanted Southerners, writes its own constitution, declares itself an independent republic and accepts slaveowners and their slaves, fleeing from the now free USA.  Many in Congress want the US to let them go and flounder, and end this war, but Greeley announces that the US will not abandon is former territories.  Aging John Breckinridge and Jefferson Davis take up residence in the new ACA.

1872—The South is in an odd position; many slaveowners have moved to ACA.  Poor farmers are mostly what’s left.  President Greeley encourages many people to move down and give the place a jumpstart.  The ACA takes and occupies Honduras.  General Robert E. Lee and the Union army are sent to once and for all recapture the ACA and end slavery.  The Republicans renominate Greeley for a second term.  He wins in a landslide race over Thomas Hendricks.  Greeley does not die.


1873—Honduras becomes a state of ACA and slaveowners move into it.  Lee lands an army in southern Panama, but disease takes down many men.  He moves into Panama City by the end of the year.  Gran Colombia wants it back, but Lee raises the US flag and stations troops.

1874—General Grant arrives early in the year at Panama with many more men.  Grant and Lee together overrun Costa Rica, Nicaragua, and Honduras before the year is over.  The slaves are freed; the war is over.

1875—Feeling his work is done, and his health declining, Greeley retires from office and dies within the year.  Immensely popular, a new state in former Sonora is named for him.  Schuyler Colfax becomes president.  Baja is admitted to the Union.  The former ACA states [including Honduras now, which is flooded with former Southerners] is placed under Reconstruction.  Nebraska is admitted to the Union.

1876—New York lawyer Samuel Tilden is nominated for President, and Thomas Hendricks VP on the Democratic side.  The Republicans nominate President Colfax and Rutherford B. Hayes.  Both sides support keeping troops in ACA for a while.  ACA states do not vote, but do have representatives readmitted into Congress [not actually elected, of course].  Colorado becomes a state and cancels the presidential election.


1877—President Tilden sends a telegram to British West Canada officials in Victoria.  He offers annexation to them.  At this point, British Columbia and Manitoba are provinces.  Tilden offers to annex both them and the vast lands to the North.  In the Treaty of Halifax, all of British North America except Newfoundland and British Honduras is ceded to the United States for $300 million and some trading rights.  Alaska is formally organized as Alaska Territory, and Siberia is formally organized as Siberia Territory.  British Columbia and Manitoba become states, and the rest is divided into territories.

1878—Tilden ends Reconstruction of the ACA states.

1879—Tilden signs a treaty with Japan, Britain, France, and Netherlands concerning trading rights in China.

1880—Tilden and Hendricks run for reelection against James Garfield and James Blaine.  Garfield wins in a shocking upset, when the Border States choose Garfield.


1881—Garfield takes office and is shot by a disgruntled office seeker.  Arthur ascends to the presidency.  Upper Ontario becomes the state of Pierce.

1882—President Tortega of Mexico makes a shocking announcement:  Because foreigners keep interfering in Mexico, he wants the entire nation to be absorbed by the United States.  Many Democrats support this, while many Republicans are horrified.  President Arthur, though, decides that he can’t turn them down and decides to annex.  British Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador, are obviously ticked off by this.

1883—Britain cedes British Honduras to the US in exchange for some trading adjustments in China.  President Arthur offers El Salvador and Guatemala statehood, and they have little choice but to accept.

1884—The states of Durango in NE Mexico, Washington [OTL Washington], and Yucatan are admitted to the US.  James Blaine receives the Republican nomination along with John Logan.  For the Democrats, Thomas Hendricks is nominated for president with Grover Cleveland.  Hendricks wins somewhat easily.  Outgoing Republicans admit Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota, and South Dakota as states.


1885—Hendricks enters office with several new Republican states.  To counter this, he manages to get Senate approval of 3 more states in Mexico:  Chiapas, Veracruz, and Mexico.  President Hendricks dies in November and Grover Cleveland ascends to the presidency.

1886—Cleveland passes the 16th amendment concerning presidential succession after the ultimately deaths of the last two elected presidents in their first year.  The amendment also requires for there to be a vice president at all times, so Cleveland chooses Allen Thurman.

1887—Democrats begin spending money promoting themselves in the Solid Republican North, while Republicans promote themselves in the Solid Democratic South,

1888—Cleveland and Thurman are nominated for another term, and are opposed by Benjamin Harrison and Levi Morton.  On election night, a few Democratic states switch, but Cleveland holds on and wins.


1889—The Populist Party gains prominence.  Alberta and Saskatchewan are admitted as states.

1890—Populists win many seats in Congress.  Sherman Anti-Trust Act.

1891—James Naismith invents basketball.

1892—The Populists nominate James Weaver and James Field for president.  The Republicans nominate Whitelaw Reid and Mark Hanna, while the Democrats nominate VP Thurman and Adlai Stevenson.  The Populists actually win, carrying the West and former Spanish lands, and New York surprisingly to win outright.


1893—The Populists keep rolling on through Congress.  The Democrats and Republicans pledge to nominate a single candidate between them for the next election.

1894—The Democratic-Republican coalition gains a majority in Congress.  When Weaver’s Secretary of State resigns, Weaver promotes Assistant Sec. State Theodore Roosevelt to temporarily fill the position.  The next day, an unfortunate fire sweeps through Washington, killing Weaver and Field.  According to the 16th amendment, Roosevelt is now president.  New president Roosevelt calls for tri-partisan agreement and is well liked by all three parties.

1895—President Roosevelt announces that America will restart its expansionist policies.  He announces that America will be taking over all Caribbean islands and will compensate former owners.  Utah is admitted as a state.

1896—US assumes practical ownership of the Caribbean.  TR reorganizes the Populist Party and renames it the Progressive party.  The Democratic-Republican Coalition nominates William McKinley and Arthur Sewall.

Great read.  Don't forget Liberia.  You'll have to figure out a way to trigger a war with Spain when they don't own Cuba if you want to get the Philippines.

What is the CCF?

Co-operative Commonwealth Federation. Canada's first big Socialist party (and a fore-runner of the NDP).
It was formed during the Great Depression (1932).
The victory of the Saskatchewan CCF (under Bible-bashing lefty, Tommy Douglas) in the 1944 Provincial Election was the most importent event in the Province's history, and the first Socialist government in North America.

Sure; maybe I'll have them merge with Norman Thomas's Socialist party.

A war with Spain is definitely in the picture.

The SPUSA would be more likely to merge into the CCF than the other way round (the CCF was formed when a load of small socialist parties merged). Thomas would fit in very well.

Very cool scenario.  Though I prefer Imperialism on the British model.  Avoids the potential of leftist voting from the subject peoples.

So many possiblities if this goes on through the Cold War.  All the coups and military intervention we did could all end up becoming states.

Can also nab a few African territories from Germany in WW1 (Kameroon, Sudwestafrika and Tanganyika).

Ahh the possiblities.

Yes, I'm planning on the US annexing Spanish, German, and maybe British African territory.  Also, the Siberia territory will play a big part in the Cold War.

Well if we're in Siberia maybe there won't be a Cold War - we'll be exerting influence in Russia and can either prop up the Czar or aid the White side in the civil war.  Those Bolsheviks wouldn't have a chance.
