Freiheit USA explores the possibility of life in the colonies being dominated by German rather than British culture, eventually leading to a German-speaking nation more cooperative with mainland Europe and isolated from Britain, meaning the 'special relationship' between the two countries ceases to exist, and different policies and outlooks on foreign and economic policy are developed in the USA that lead to a very different present.
Points of Divergence
More heavy German, Austrian and Swiss immigration to the 13 colonies meant that society quickly became bilingual to the tune of English and German. Eventually the Germanic identity became one of many driving forces behind the declaration of independence from the British Empire, and a bilingual nation was formed. However, industrial growth in German majority cities such as New York and Philadelphia caused German to become dominant to the point where the German-English balance in the USA today is similar to OTL English-Spanish balance.
