Alternate History

Alternate History: The Cincinnati

What if things had gone differently? What if the Founders had taken as their model not late eighteenth-century Britain, but that other great example of good government: the Antonine dynasty of the Roman Empire, in which each Emperor "adopted" the leading military politician of the next generation as his successor?

I just thought it was cool.

(Actually, I thought, Brad! Thanks! That gives me an idea for a story. )
