[[http://www.alternatehistory.com/discussion/showthread.php?t=338660 The Land of Freedom]] is an alternate history work published by Sakura_F on alternatehistory.com. The premise of the story is the death of George Washington, the general rout of the Continental Army, and a mass exodus of several thousand Americans to South Africa to avoid British persecution. As a result, when the Netherlands is taken over by France in 1795, Georgia, as the state is called, declares independence, and begins the process of taking over the African continent.

* AntiHero: General Thomas Jefferson Rhodes; he's a racist and tried to set up an ''apartheid'' state in Zimbabwe named after himself, but it quickly fell apart after he tried to convince the government of Georgia to let him stay as an associated state. He hightailed it to Georgian Somalia to save face. But he acted in what he felt was the best means of helping the government of Georgia.
* BornUnlucky: Even in a completely alternate universe, William Henry Harrison still dies.
* {{Cincinnatus}}:
** George Stevens (OTL's Thaddeus Stevens) becomes Acting President twice after the death of two different presidents. He doesn't try to hold onto power outside of democratic means.
** General Kesselring launches a military coup, but relinquishes power in 1861.
* ForWantOfANail:
** The actual name for Chapter 19 of the story.
** A strong trope in general for this ATL, as a general rolling effect due to the American Revolution's implosion lead to a whole new set of affairs.
* TheGeneralissimo:
** George Heath tries to be this when he launches a monarchist rebellion.
** Thomas Jefferson Rhodes, President of Rhodesia.
* InSpiteOfANail:
** The actual name for Chapter 20 of the story.
** Despite a civil war in a less developed part of the world, the Union still wins.
* MyDeathIsJustTheBeginning: George Washington's death may lead to defeat at first, but it becomes something much, much more interesting.
* WholePlotReference: '''Stirling-esque''' is the ATL term for what '''Orwellian''' means in OTL. It is a reference to the Draka, which inspired the author to write about an "anti-Draka", of sorts.
