r/AskHistory Rules

1.
Please follow Reddiquette.
2.
Only questions about history. No current politics.
4.
Keep "what if" questions reasonable.

"What if" questions (also known as counter-factual questions) should include an explanation of what legitimate historical information you're looking for. "What if Lincoln had not been assassinated" should include the question "How did presidential and congressional reconstruction plans differ?"

We cannot and will not entertain butterfly-effect style questions. You can take such questions to r/WritingPrompts or r/HistoryWhatIf/
