American Revolution has several possibilities.
Besides the obvious what if Canada was captured in 1775, there are several good ones. What if the Spanish had attacked St Augustine or a Franco-Spanish assault on Jamaica.
What if the British Central American invasion force made up of mainly Proventials and Patriot POW had not all died of disease.

What if in 1814-15 the British had captured New a Orleans.
