    Alternate History: President Wade

    Discussion in 'Writing Prompts' started by Iain Aschendale, Jan 29, 2017.

    Due to current events, I went down the rabbit hole of US Constitutional law and found this tidbit:

    Senator Benjamin Wade was, after the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, next in line to succeed to the presidency had the impeachment of Andrew Johnson passed. According to Wikipedia:

    I have neither the historical skills nor the patience to attempt an alternate history with this as the turning point.

    Nor do I have Harry Turtledove's email address.

    But somebody could knock this one out of the park.
