Lower Canada Rebellion Picture
In Quebec Independence, the British does not pass the Quebec Act, resulting in a Quebec revolution against the British and their independence soon after.


Quebec would gain its independence in 1783 after years of fighting for independence. This would forever change the world through butterfly effects, the first of which being...

1. The United States achieves a far greater victory in the War of 1812. Known in this timeline as the War of 1808, disputes over territory and boundaries in the Midwest region between Quebec and the United States would result in a stronger American military. Stronger militaries and an earlier discovery of British support for Indian raiders leads to war breaking out in 1808. With British forces tied up in Europe, the combined might of America and Quebec splits the eastern British colonies between them, in exchange for payments and the establishment of an Indian confederacy. The loss of the majority of Britain's North American colonies leads to...

2. Britain's colonization of North America switches to the west. Displaced Loyalists flee to the westward fringes of Canada, resulting in British colonies stretching across Canada much sooner. British settlers reach the Pacific faster than the Americans, resulting in the British taking control of Oregon and supporting the independence of California. Hoping to protect Canada and other interests in North America, Britain has a much stronger desire to prevent America's expansion, which would lead to...

3. Britain supports an independent Confederacy. With the balance of power in North America tied (the stronger America and Quebec vs. the weaker Canada and California with the support of Britain), Britain hoped to tip the scales by supporting the Confederacy. The civil war breaks out earlier due to the election of John C. Fremont in 1856, and after Confederate victories Britain, Canada, and California come to their aid. The Confederate States would achieve victory, and the power of the United States suffered a tremendous setback, leading to...

4. The end of the Monroe Doctrine. Following their defeat in the War of 1885, the United States focused on the Confederacy, and lacked enough power to back up their Monroe Doctrine, which meant the New World was open to European colonization once again. Britain issued its own "Atlantic Doctrine", but this would lead to...

5. Rising tensions between Britain and France. France already had an ally in the New World in the form of Mexico, but Britain attempted to prevent France from gaining further influence. France first attempted to ignore the Royal Navy, but would later try to establish a navy bigger than Britain's. These rising tensions lead to...

6. Different alliances in the upcoming years before World War I: Britain would ally with the Germans in early 1900s, while France, closer to Austria-Hungary, forms an alliance with them. The alliances of Europe were redrawn and became dramatically different than the ones found in OTL. Meanwhile, World War I would be a much larger conflict, featuring theaters in Europe, Asia, Africa, North America, and South America. This leads to...

7. World War I and II is much more bloodier and destructive. With warfare and bloodshed on five of the six inhabited continents, the death and casualty toll of these two wars much higher than in OTL. Extreme nationalist being much more common, with the horrors of war being blamed on the ideology, leading to...

8. The formation of Unitarianism and an alternate Cold War. The final major butterfly of the time. The polar opposite of nationalist, Unitarianism is the belief that in order to avoid future warfare on such a terrible scale, humanity must be unified, whether by force or peace. Russia becomes the champion of this ideology, resulting in an alternate Cold War. Another result of more extreme nationalism is the formation of regional blocs - hoping to avoid nationalism, relationships between nations are stronger.
