Literature: Heart Of Dixie
Heart of Dixie is a continuing timeline on AlternateHistory.com, with the goal of, to use the author's words, "a timeline with a world of butterflies set free in which the CSA does not turn into Nazi-analogues, literally Satan, or any other sort of dark cliches." And so far, it's going a decent job of it. For Want of a Nail is in full effect, and the effects are felt worldwide.The timeline can be found here, with a comprehensive list of posts here for those who don't want to sift through the discussions.
Tropes that appear on this page include:
- Alternate History
- Deep South: Averted, the CSA is actually pretty nice.
- Divided States of America: An independent Confederacy that bans slavery by the 1880s.
- Elective Monarchy: The Holy Russian Empire.
- For Want of a Nail: The American Civil War happening under James Buchanan instead of Abraham Lincoln changes everything.
- Imperial Germany: A more benign version, as Frederick III has his time in office and Otto Von Bismarck is crushed by a car.
