Andrew Jackson Assassinated is a timeline where the assassination attempt on 7th President Andrew Jackson by Richard Laurence is successful.
Points of Divergence:
Early Civil War: Vice President John C. Calhoun is appointed the 8th president of the United States, and plunges the nation into Civil War much sooner than anyone had expected. The Confederacy has the backing of the former U.S. government, though, and the ill-funded and much reduced Union is soon defeated and incorporated into the new continental Confederacy of American United States.
Cherokee Independence: The Cherokee Nation is able to fend off land speculators and U.S. soldiers and declare itself an independent sister republic, carving a large portion of land away from the southern United States.
