Critics have hailed the recent publication of What If?: The World's Foremost Military Historians Imagine What Might Have Been as a reminder of the power of fortune upon history. How different things might have been, its authors remind us, if Napoleon had unifed Europe in the 19th century, or the Confederacy had won the battle of Antietam and with it the support of England and France. Unhappily for observers of the American scene, however, no such constellation of historians has considered the fortunes of our cultural history. Are only battles worthy of alternative history? We at Suck present our own What If? A collection of mind-bending counterfactuals that trip down the road not traveled.
