Alternate History

The Center for International Maritime Security (CIMSEC) is running an Alternate History Week.  Here’s my contribution to kick it off: What if Commodore Charles Stewart had become President of the United States?

“President Charles Stewart and the Making of American Naval Power”

Stewart was the subject of my first non-fiction book, “A Call to the Sea.”  This alternate history essay uses information from his life to discuss what might have been had he chosen at that dinner in 1844 to accept the party’s nomination instead of balking.
