Group Description

The primary purpose of the RediscoveredNWHistory (Alternative Histories) Discussion Group is to discuss Alternative Histories from a Pre-Columbian to Post-Columbian perspective of exploration and colonization of the New World and all the adjacent land masses surrounding the two continents. This involves the possible political, social, religious/philosophical or psychological motivations that helped to generate these efforts and the history of the men who became the "Founding Fathers" of the governments that helped to form the future nations of the Western Hemisphere.

These ventures were sometimes fueled by marvelous and fantastic legends of mysterious lands and fabulous treasures. From where did these tales originate and was
there any truth behind them?

Topics may include, but are not limited to:
The early explorers and their discoveries;
What inspired them to embark on these voyages;
The archeological evidence of settlements;
The legends that may have inspired some of these
Who were the "aboriginals", Amerindians or Native Americans
that were encountered;
What, and where, was their origin;
The history and visions of the "Founding Fathers";
The nature, involvement and evolution of societies and

Our expectations are:

Consideration at all times;
Respect for all the list members;
Readiness to back up statements with references;
Clarity regarding whether a statement is a personal opinion.

Flaming, Profanity and Personal Insults will not be tolerated.
