  • Northern Victory Series: An extensive alternate history series written by Harry Turtledove set around an American victory at the Battle of Gettysburg, leading to a military victory over the Confederate States of America. Without an economic depression and political humiliation, the U.S. is able to purchase Alaska and Cuba from Russia and Spain. The United States does not become an ally of Germany in the 1880s and turns into a fairly isolationist state. In 1941, after being attacked by Japan, the Americans become a de-facto ally of the Entente and engage the Japanese in a series of island campaigns. The Pacific War ends in a victory over Japan by 1946, marking the beginning of the Cold War between the United States and Germany.

Under a constitutional amendment made by President Long and the Confederate Congress, the President is allowed to run for as many terms as he/she wants. Long wins reelection in 1932 and further extends the power of the federal government. The Confederate government works at eliminating the Restorationist Party, as well as other fascist groups. In 1937, he begins at working at eliminating other political opposition by suppressing the activities of the Whigs and forming the Socialist Party of the Confederate States. During World War II, the Confederate States is neutral throughout the war, leading to more American involvement in the Pacific Wars and the war in Europe.
