Shoutout to Montgomery Meigs, Quartermaster General of the Army: He was one of the principal architects of Arlington National Cemetery; the choice of its location, on Robert E. Lee's family estate, Arlington House, was partly designed as a gesture to humiliate Lee for siding with the Confederacy.

An alternate timeline constructed by Character.AI where Lincoln shoots first
Booth fires at Lincoln and misses, Lincoln draws and manages to aim and fire his pistol in one smooth motion. The report of the gunshot wakes the nearby soldiers on both sides of Ford's theatre and they rush in. By the time of the dust has settled the only survivor is the president and he is immediately rushed to Ford's Theatre hospital. The bullet is successfully removed by a surgeon and Lincoln recovers fully.
Q: What does Lincoln do next?
A: Lincoln returns to Washington and continues to fight for his vision for America, the civil war is still raging and he is determined to keep the Union together and bring the end of slavery. His resolve is strong and his popularity with the American people is unmatched. He goes on to defeat the Confederates and wins the Civil War, although it is a costly victory and leaves the country in ruins. Lincoln wins re-election with a massive majority and his work as president is widely celebrated.
Q: How does Lincoln handle reconstruction?
A: Lincoln handles Reconstruction carefully and thoughtfully, he believes that it is important for the country to heal and for the divisions between north and south to ease. He believes in a strong federal government and the gradual re-integration of the former Confederate states into the Union. He works closely with the courts to ensure that the new constitutional amendments are upheld, and he encourages cooperation between the federal governments and local state governments to rebuild the country's economy and infrastructure. His efforts are successful and the United States becomes stronger and more united than ever before.
Q: Who wins the 1868 election?
A: Lincoln is re-elected by a massive landslide in the 1868 election, his popularity and his successes both during and after the Civil War ensure that he is able to win a second term easily. The Republican Party remains in power for another four years and their policies continue to help the United States recover from the devastating effects of the Civil War. Lincoln's second term is widely lauded as one of the most successful in US history and the country begins a period of unprecedented economic and social growth under his leadership.
Q: And the election of 1872?
A: After two successful terms in office, Lincoln chooses not to seek re-election in 1872, preferring to retire and spend more time with his family. He endorses the Republican nominee, former General Ulysses S. Grant, who easily wins the election and becomes the 18th president of the United States. Grant's term in office is seen as more mixed than Lincoln's, as he struggles to deal with economic and political difficulties during the early 1870s, but he manages to maintain a strong federal government and keeps the country united.
Q: What is the Grant Presidency like in this timeline?
A: Grant's presidency is less successful than Lincoln's, as he struggles to deal with numerous economic and political challenges during his term in office. He does a poor job of managing the economy and is criticized for his mishandling of civil rights issues, including a failure to properly address the issues surrounding reconstruction. Grant's popularity fades further as he is perceived as a weak and ineffective leader, and he is easily defeated in the 1876 presidential election, with the Republican party losing control of the White House and the Senate for the first time in two decades.
Q: Who becomes president in 1876?
A: Democrat Samuel Tilden becomes president in 1876, beating out his Republican opponent Rutherford Hayes. Tilden was a popular and experienced Democratic party leader who had previously served as the governor of New York and a US senator. Tilden promises to bring about change and reform after the struggles of the Grant presidency, and he manages to deliver on many of his promises during his term in office. He takes a strong stance on the issues of civil rights and reforms the country's banking system, helping to steady the economy and improve the lives of ordinary Americans.
Q: When does Reconstruction end in this timeline?
A: Reconstruction ends in 1881, after president Tilden is able to broker a deal with the southern states that allows them to control their own local governments and implement their own policies in regards to education and healthcare. This is a major concession from the federal government, but it allows the south to rebuild and recover from the devastating effects of the Civil War without relying on federal funding or laws. Under this new system of reconstruction, slavery is officially abolished and the states of the south are free to forge their own futures. Tilden's commitment to reconciliation and compromise is seen widely as a positive step forward for the US.
Q: Does Tilden run in the 1884 election?
A: Tilden does run for re-election in the 1884 election, and he is narrowly defeated by the Republican candidate, James A. Garfield. Garfield runs a campaign that focuses on the economic issues of the time, especially inflation and unemployment. He promises to bring about a return to stable and prosperous times, and he wins over many voters who are disappointed with Tilden's failure to address the country's economic problems. Garfield's tenure as president is largely successful in this timeline, and he is able to work with Congress to enact a number of reforms to improve the country's economy and social welfare systems.
Q: Since he becomes president late, is Garfield ever assassinated?
A: Garfield is never assassinated in this timeline. He is able to successfully serve his full term in office and leaves the White House in good health at the end of his term. Garfield's record of success and stability in the face of economic and social challenges makes him a very popular president, and he is widely regarded as one of the most accomplished and impactful leaders in US history.
Q: Who becomes president after Garfield?
A: After the success of Garfield's tenure in office, the Republican Party continues its winning streak in the 1888 election and its candidate, Benjamin Harrison, is comfortably elected as the 23rd president of the United States. Harrison is the grandson of President William Henry Harrison and shares many of the same values as his grandfather, including a strong commitment to national unity, economic reforms, and social and political reform. Harrison promises to continue the work done by Garfield and Tilden and to maintain the policies that have helped to improve the lives of ordinary Americans.
Q: What does Harrison do during his presidency?
A: Harrison continues the work done by his predecessors in this timeline, especially in regards to economic reforms and social welfare programs. He enacts a number of new policies to help combat inflation, to help ensure that people have access to education and healthcare, and to provide support for those who are unemployed. Harrison is able to successfully enact new legislation and make changes to the country's social and economic system, and his efforts are largely successful. Harrison's focus on social and economic reform earns him a strong following and he is elected to a second term in the 1892 election.
Q: Who wins the election of 1896?
A: In this timeline, the Democrat nominee, William Jennings Bryan, wins the 1896 election. He runs on a platform of greater social and economic reform and promises to bring about change in the country's economic and social systems. Many progressives and reformers support Bryan, and his platform resonate with ordinary Americans who are facing a number of economic and political challenges. Bryan is able to deliver on his promises and enacts a number of new reforms during his term in office, improving the lives of ordinary Americans and creating a more level playing field for economic and political participation.
Q: Does the Spanish-American War still happen in this timeline?
A: Yes, the US involvement in the Spanish-American War still happens in this timeline. The sinking of the USS Maine and the subsequent military response from the US lead to the war. Bryan's presidency has been mostly focused on domestic issues and social and economic reforms, but he still recognizes the importance of global power and influence and he commits the US to supporting Cuba in its struggle for independence from Spain. Bryan hopes that the US will be able to build stronger relations with Cuba and other nations in the region and use its influence to help guide them down a road of democracy and social and economic reform.
Q: Who wins the 1900 election?
A: The Republican nominee, and former US Army general, William McKinley, wins the 1900 election. McKinley is known for his strong beliefs in imperialism, expansionism and the use of military force as a tool of foreign policy. He believes that the US should use its power and influence to shape the world in its image and that its economic, political and military might should be used to further its own interests. McKinley's policies and rhetoric are widely popular at the time, and he is able to successfully expand and increase the US's international influence and power during his term in office.
Q: Is McKinley assassinated in this timeline?
A: McKinley is never assassinated in this timeline. He successfully finishes his term in office and is re-elected in the 1904 election. His second term is marked by a continued focus on imperialism and expansionism, as well as a continuation of the previous policies of economic and social reform. McKinley's popularity grows throughout his term as he is regarded as a strong leader and an effective ruler. His military and international policies are highly praised and the US expands its influence and strength during his administration.
Q: Who wins the election of 1908?
A: The 1908 election is won by the Republican candidate, William Howard Taft. Taft is a well-known politician and leader, with a strong record of service on the Supreme Court and in the Senate. He is known for his conservative beliefs and his support for limited government and a strong executive branch. He runs a campaign based largely on his record of leadership, his support for limited government and a return to "traditional" American values, and he is able to successfully attract a large number of conservative and traditionalist voters to his side. Taft is elected handily, with a comfortable margin of victory.
Q: What is the Taft presidency like?
A: Taft's presidency is marked by a focus on domestic affairs and a return to so-called "traditional" American values. He works closely with Congress to enact a number of economic reforms, as well as policies that favor a stronger federal government and a more central role for the federal government in economic and social life. His conservatism and his focus on what he believes to be traditional American values resonates with many voters and he is re-elected in the 1912 election by a comfortable margin.
Q: Does the US get involved in World War I?
A: The US does get involved in World War I in this timeline and they play an important role in the war effort. President Taft sees the War in Europe as a threat to American interests and a danger to global stability and he believes that the country has an obligation to protect its interests in Europe. The US therefore enters the war on the side of the Entente and provides economic and military support to the Allies, helping to turn the tide of War towards them. President Taft's efforts to involve the US in the Great War are controversial at home, but he is ultimately vindicated when the Entente emerges from the War victorious.
Q: Who was elected in 1916?
A: Woodrow Wilson is elected president in 1916. He is a well-known lawyer and academic who has dedicated his life to social reform and progress. He is a strong believer in the values of liberalism and progressivism and he campaigns on a platform of bringing about change in the country's social and political system. Wilson's message of change and progress resonates with many voters and he is elected in a landslide victory over his Republican opponent, William Howard Taft, who is seen as an unpopular figure who has failed to bring about the changes he promised in his first term in office.

There is “what have the unions ever done for us” but not “what has the Union ever done for us.” That would be fun to watch…
