For All Nails: Numerical Listing of Posts

Click here to return to the For All Nails home page. Click here to go to the chronological index.

This archive contains all postings in For All Nails, a collaborative extension to the timeline of Robert Sobel's alternate history For Want of a Nail. The point of divergence is the victory of Burgoyne at Saratoga in 1777. North America is subsequently divided between the Confederation of North America and the United States of Mexico. A timeline of events specified in Sobel's book is here.

The convention for these postings is that they be short vignettes, usually from a single first-person or limited-omniscient point of view. Sometimes two or more related vignettes are combined into a single post. Some "facts" from Sobel have been asserted here to be errors, generally after discussion.

This list, by posting number, is roughly in order of posting and not at all in internal chronological order. This list has the events in order by date.

Introducing a New Feature! This archive now contains posts in the "For All Nails Flashbacks" series, describing events before post #1 in 1957. These appear in green in the list below.

Authors so far: Matt Alderman, Chester A. Arthur, David Mix Barrington, Sir Francis Burdett, Jonathan Edelstein, Bernard Guerrero, Joe Horan, Mike Keating, Henrik Kiertzner, Noel Maurer, Dan McDonald, Randy McDonald, Johnny Pez, Raymond Speer, Walter R.
