Map Monday: The World Cromwell Made on December 25, 1955 by PlatoonSgt

This week's featured map is from PlatoonSgt of AlternateHistory.com, whose maps from "Where Hearts Were Entertaining June" I have featured in the past. Well he is quickly becoming one of my favorites with his "The World Cromwell Made on December 25, 1955":
According to PlatoonSgt, the map is inspired from Martin23230's "The Commonwealth" map. In this world Cromwell lives ten years longer and the Commonwealth solidifies its control over England, Scotland and Ireland. The Stuarts, however, are still around after establishing themselves in Maryland with the help of the local Catholics and the Dutch. I have always liked the idea of a Stuart kingdom in America so that was a big hook for me.

In PlatoonSgt's map, he jumps the timeline to the 1950s where the Stuarts have transformed Maryland into a Catholic empire stretching across most of OTL United States and Canada. His scenario focus on Christmas was a nice touch, giving a better insight into the culture of this world where Catholic nations are the most powerful, even if the Puritan Commonwealth still exists. A little wankish perhaps, but otherwise an interesting and imaginative map.

Honorable mentions this week go out to Sam McDonald's (of Flag Friday fame) map based on Twilight Histories' The Kaiser Assassin and Operation Wodan, 4chan's map of Europe (I thought what they did to Russia was a nice touch) and the "Natives of North America" map. If you want to submit a map for the next Map Monday, email me at ahwupdate at gmail dot com with your map attached and a brief description in the body of the email.
