This piece was written by Rev. William Jenks (1778-1866) around 1808 and was published as a 48-page pamphlet. It presents a counterfactual history, that describes how the United States came to be dissolved into a French-dominated imperial South, a British/Canadian-controlled New England under a British viceroy, and the Illinois Republick (the last bastion of democratic government in America).
