Article Eleven Banner

Article Eleven (A11) centers around a world controlled by imperialists and the United States. The main point of divergence is Gaudium 16th, 3rd Anno Unum (January 12th, 1779.) After much consideration the Canadian colonies join the United States. This single event sparks a bloody American Revolution, a much more severe War of 1812, and the birth of the "American Empire".
