15 March 44 B.C. What if Caesar lived?

The more I researched Caesar’s assassination, the more intriguing it became. I loved how in the HBO series ROME, a contributing factor was Vorenus rushing away to confront his wife, leaving Caesar defenseless. But, in reality, there are some theories that Caesar had a very good idea what he walking into that day.

It must have been rather hard to keep such a conspiracy secret in a city such as Rome. Caesar was suffering from a malady, many think it was epilepsy, although some have proposed he suffered mini-strokes. Regardless, he was an ill man. He did some strange things in the months leading up to his death. At one point, Marc Antony tried to crown him and Caesar refused. But its doubtful Antony would have come up with this on his own.

Perhaps Caesar committed suicide by assassination?

But a more intriguing What If is this: What If Marc Antony had been able to get to Caesar and warn him? Together they decided to turn the tables on the assassins?

Caesar was only 56 when he died. What if he’d lived another 20 years, ruling Rome? How would history be different?

4 July 1863. What if the Union Counter-Attacked the day after Pickett’s Charge?

The Union was on Cemetery Ridge; the Confederates on Seminary Ridge. It was raining. Both sides had taken high casualties. The soldiers were exhausted.

Lee was hoping that Meade would attack; a reversal of Pickett’s charge. He didn’t. But what if he did? Tweet this! Independence Day (Time Patrol) coming out on 4 July. These are the problems the Time Patrol face in each book: six missions, same day, different years, the Time Patrol must keep our timeline intact.
